It’s bending the rules a bit since I don’t believe anyone can call Reddit an actual blog, but it’s an information swarm that doesn’t receive enough attention. For those unfamiliar with Reddit, it is a social media platform geared towards open debate. It’s divided into distinct forums for specialist topics called subreddits, covering every subject you can imagine. Subreddits such as r/investing, r/stocks or business, and r/StockMarket offer an information source and an online community that allows you to discuss everything related to the market. It’s an excellent resource for beginners to invest in since you can locate the right neighborhood and information suitable for you. And more importantly, if you ever have any questions, you can ask!

The Big Picture has been around since 2003 and has gained a devoted following since it was founded, primarily due to Ritholtz’s non-bullshit strategy for investing. The current Bloomberg writer and the ex-Washington Post writer is in the elusive club of Wall Street; he is one of the few people who have successfully predicted something. In this instance, it was the housing crisis and then the recession that followed in 2008. The Big Picture is an excellent insight into an investor’s thoughts at the top.
