Hobbyist investment bloggers have been around for many years and surprising investment newbies of different age group haven't discover them. How come? Something for Uncle8888's blogger friend, TheFinance.sg to find out why? LOL! This not-so-young man sat beside Uncle8888. Normal BAU action to know your seat neighour at seminar. CW: I retiree. You work how long? He: 17 years. CW: You invest how long? He: Just about one year. CW: All these years you put your saving in the bank? He: Yes. CW: Why you want to invest now? He : To beat inflation . (May be he was just repeating what he heard from the seminar speaker why people need to invest. LOL!) CW: You never visit Singapore investment blogs? He : No. Don't know. Uncle88888 showed him two investment blogs aggregator; download My SGX app and also asked him to join BIGS World Facebook group. During the lunch break; Uncle8888 was standing next to one middle age couple; Uncle8888 was trying to open up his lunch pack; but the plastic cover seen to get stuck and he has some difficulty in taking out the plastic cover. This kind woman saw old man struggling with his lunch pack and quickly helped old man to open up his lunch box. After sometime; Uncle8888 asked the woman how long she has been investing? She replied she has just started investing and wanted to learn more about investing from the seminar; but she found the course fee of $4,XXX was on the high side. Uncle8888 asked the same questions as the guy and did the same for the couple! Hopefully; he has introduced potentially three active followers to our investment blogosphere. LOL!
