I have enjoyed working on the site and have published 11 static pages with articles explaining such things as covered calls, puts, and collars. I have also begun a forum which doesn't have any members other than myself and a blog with 2 posts which will serve as a more active portion of the site allowing me to explain some of my trades and comment on the current state of the market.
I would like to take this post and lay out my plans for the site between now and the end of the year. This serves two main purposes. First, it forces me to sit down and write out what I plan to accomplish. Second, it lays it out there for all to see and provides a measure of accountability that will force me to act in order to avoid embarrassment publicly. So let's get started:
- I plan on having about 100 pages of static content with articles explaining various aspects of trading options. I will be able to get several more articles on covered calls and puts. I will be able to write about the various types of spreads and explain some of the nuances of options pricing. I could easily come up with about 50 article topics in the next 20 minutes. My goal is to get these posted by the end of the year. 90 articles in 9 months is 10 per month or about 3 per week. This would fit with my earlier goal for HubPages of publishing one during the week and one each on Saturday and Sunday.
- I would like to add a section on book reviews. I will first start through my library and write reviews on the books I have already read. I will probably re-read several of them and offer some useful tidbits on what I find in the book and make a recommendation on whether to buy, buy cheap, borrow or don't bother.
- I will continue to post to the blog section approximately once per week on average. I will likely have more to say at certain times than others. I got commentluv working so when I go to comment on other blogs, the most recent post from my blog at optionsdude.com will appear. I have also placed the posts at the uppermost part of the sidebar on this blog so if any of you have interest in options, you can link to them here.
I know that some effort will be required, and I expect that. I am looking forward to it. I enjoy taking the topics that seem confusing to others and explaining them in such a way that anyone can understand. I think options trading can be one of those topics. I believe I can offer an everyday individual's insight into this aspect of investing and am looking forward to the challenge.
