I started this blog in 2016. I wanted to publish short pieces while I was writing Bankers are people, too and build an audience for the book.
A lot has changed since then.
In the first years, I tried to post at least once a week about topics ranging from economic history to personal finance. Currently, I write almost exclusively about banks and monetary policy. I have lost interest in faits divers such as Gamestop, lumber, dogecoin… My style has also changed. I now mainly use this blog as my personal wikipedia. Well-polished articles don’t offer enough reward for the work it takes to write them.
Looking back, what should I have done differently?
- Use video instead of text
- Don’t waste time on ideologues
- More coverage of innovative1 topics such as blockchain and ESG
That said, I’m glad that I met new friends and found jobs thanks to this blog.
