    I’m glad you liked the idea. It is a great way to generate topics. I’m still trying to finish off my list from the 100th post contest.

    As for your blog, I would like to see a post on your spending regrets. What have you bought either investment wise or personally that you have regretted and why?

    I am a daily reader of your blog. It is simply amazing. I have just purchased my first condo last week but I am only moving in next summer (not built yet) Maybe you can write a litte more on first time home buyers.

    I would like to see a post on how to assess if you are on track considering net worth, age and income. After you want to save but not to the point that you stop enjoying life.

    Thanks for all the great tips, as your articles really help a lot of the average Joe’s like me out there.

    My suggestion – How to use a small business corporation to defer tax payments (when it is feasible/who is it for?)

    and how to withdraw from the corporation to reduce overall tax implications.

    Some of the suggestions so far are great… I really like the spending regrets suggestion.

    My question deals getting a revenue property. What factors to do you look at when investigating getting a revenue property.

    I actually sent you a bunch of questions yesterday and we’ve gone back and forth a few times with different bits of info.

    Something I’d like to see more of on the site are How To style posts or X for Beginners/Dummies posts. I’m young, I don’t know much about investing, but I want to learn from people with experience and it’s hard to get that without paying. Right now my highest interest is to learn about investing in stocks and such, but I can’t find any basics of how to get started, how much capital is a good amount to start with, where to dig up info and how to even buy stocks. It’s all a bit overwhelming. :)

    Love the blog, keep it up!

    Just a quick question – how long did it take for you to receive your National Post subscriptions? I changed my account about a month ago but haven’t received anything yet.

    I’d would be interested in reading a post on how to save money on home expenses.

  • Avatar Investoid May 14, 2007, 8:05 pm

    Never mind, mine came in the mail today :-)

    I’ve like know you view on real estate investing during retirement. Do you intend to keep your rental properties, or swap them with dividend stocks/income trusts (+ REIT)? Reason I ask is stocks and income trusts require less work to monitor, and you can watch them from anywhere in the world, even when you’re traveling.

    Great contest idea!

    You haven’t done a book review in a while. How about the worst investment book you have ever read (or if you don’t want to out the author, the worst pieces of investment advice you have ever read)?

    With the price of gas being a hot topic these days, most of the talk is people complaining about how much more it’s costing them to fill up their tanks.
    A topic you could touch on is how can we benefit from rising gas prices. Obviously the oil companies will continue to make record profits, but what about the support industries, drillers, equipment manufactures etc?
    Where would one invest to help offset the pain at the pump?
