Congrats to my boyee Paul Kedrosky of Infectious Greed and AOL’s Blogging Stocks who were named by SmartMoney as part of the "Power 30" — specifically cited in a slot reserved just for Investment Bloggers:
"Wall Street has always functioned like a giant chat room—the Internet just made it official, says Paul Kedrosky, 42, who writes the blog Infectious Greed. He and other bloggers make their voices heard with sharp analysis that’s sometimes missing from the rest of the media. Plus, they get to curse and go on tangents. “If I had to do nonfarm payrolls, blah, blah, blah, my head would explode,” says Barry Ritholtz, 47, of the blog The Big Picture.
Kedrosky says traffic on his blog has nearly doubled in the past year, to 210,000 unique visitors a month. And BloggingStocks, one of the most popular financial blogs, has seen traffic grow 36 percent since last year. As the credit crisis continues to pound the economy, they’ll have plenty of fodder in the months to come."
Curse? Go on tangents? WTF is that about?
The full magazine is out later this month . . .
