Two worthy newcomers to the financial bloggers world ...

There's two new blogs out there that I'd like to draw your attention to. Two blogs that might battle for your attention in the future.

The first is a blog written by a TOC, Deborah, from near my area, in rainy Vancouver, BC. She writes a blog called Making Sense of My World.

It's an exceptionally detailed look into the world of mining stocks, primarily, but she occasionally touches on other financial subjects as well. It's clear to any reader, including one like myself who has little understanding of mining stocks, that she has dived in deep enough to figure out "What's Up".

With her, "making sense of my [her] world", she's helped me understand the mining world a bit more. I highly recommend a visit to "Deb's World". See also the new link on my blogroll.

The second blog I'd like to draw your attention to is one written by Eric Fox, the Market Prognosticator. Eric recently emailed me and asked me if I'd take a look around his blog. I like someone who asks for what they want, and Eric did that. I was very pleasantly surprised when I read several of his articles, and liked his edgy tone and slant on things. I read several of the articles and enjoyed them thoroughly. An excerpt from ... The Most Terrifying Thing I Have Read in My Life ...

I get an e-mail every morning with a recap of what is going in the market. Most of the time the articles are something I have read somewhere else or I am not interested in them. Today was different. The headline was enticing. It read: How do you pay off your home mortgage in a few years or less? Learn to use hedged ...

The last word was left off but it was not rocket science to guess that the missing word was "futures." Oh this was going to be fun. When I clicked on the link it was even better than I thought. It read: How do you pay off your home mortgage in a few years or less? Learn to use hedged futures with options and arbitrageur strategy.

Well sure why not? There's nothing wrong with 80 million homeowners entering the futures market. This might even solve the sub prime lending mess. People who can't even read a mortgage note trading futures and options.

Eric goes on in the article ... rather amusingly, I might add. I recommend his blog for those looking for a bit of insight and spicy writing.

Find also the link to Eric's blog in my blog roll to the right. Well, hope you all had a safe and enjoyable Independence Day. Bye for now ...
