Credit Writedowns is ending paid subscriptions for now

For nearly four years now, Credit Writedowns has been run using a freemium model, with most of the content behind a firewall. But over the past two years, the amount of time I have been able to devote to the blog and newsletter has declined. This week, I have been unable to write an in-depth note on the economy and markets. And for some time now, I have not been able to keep up a regular schedule of posts. As a result, I have decided to end all paid subscriptions and make the Credit Writedowns Pro newsletter free.

I have had some personal affairs to attend to and will continue to be occupied over the next several days and won’t be able to post often. I will try as best I can to get some posts out but I am not sure I will be able to. Bare with me over the next week or so. Cheers.   […]

While I was on my Easter break, I came up with what I think is a good format to both reward paying subscribers of Credit Writedowns Pro with good content and post outside the paywall at the same time. I have been toying with various ways to start this post and haven’t really fixed on the right way to approach it. So I will just write and see what comes out on the other side.

I’m back. The vacation is now over and I am ready to get down to business. I hope you enjoyed the other posters over the last two weeks. You have probably seen a few of the posts I have written since Saturday, so let me now tell you about an exciting change I have in store for Credit Writedowns.

Right now, I am getting a bit of much needed rest and relaxation. I started a holiday last week that will continue through next week. So my own posting will be light and the links posts will be thin. Posts from other authors will continue as normal.

All the best.

Quick note on updates at Credit Writedowns

Quick note on updates at Credit Writedowns

I have instituted a few changes at Credit Writedowns to which I wanted to alert readers. The changes were mostly for members but they affect all readers. I had heard from a few member readers that it wasn’t clear where member content resides as most of it is integrated into the normal post stream. So I have made a number of changes in order to make the member content much more recognizable as members-only content.

Finally the time has arrived. Credit Writedowns now offers Credit Writedowns Pro, a members-only forum for those interested in finance, markets and the economy. I finished up my first weekly newsletter piece this morning and have been working on some admin/backend stuff since then. There are a few kinks in the system but things look ok.

With the fundraiser week winding down, I am going to start making a few changes now. One thing we probably need is a synopsis of the past week’s posts in order to tie the week’s events together thematically. I will make this synopsis using the most read and tweeted posts plus the ones I think are most relevant to what’s actually happening in global markets and the economy.

This week there is a ton of stuff here. So, here we go with the weekly report volume 1, issue 1.
