Barron's Online is now offering content from Seeking Alpha's ETF page. This can be found at the Barron's site on the funds page in the lower left entitled Latest Blog Coverage Of ETFs.
This is a big deal for a couple of reasons. This is a validation of the content that is out there in the blogosphere and the way it is helping do-it-yourself investors learn to be better money managers.
I think the big difference between the blogosphere and some of the monthly magazines is that where the monthlies provide a journalist's eye view of things like ETFs and other aspects of investing the blogosphere provides access to people that actually manage money, have managed money in the past or have otherwise had genuine success with investing.
To me, that difference is huge.
Barron's has been in touch with this for a long time. It started featuring blogs in the Electronic Trader Column in the fall of 2004. Their realization that the blogosphere offers some great content continues with the news about Seeking Alpha.
If you have been reading blogosphere content for any length of time you know that Seeking Alpha has been an important hub for information about many slices of the market. Hopefully SA's role in helping investors will only grow in the future.
Congrats to the entire SA crew for this.
