Serious question. I've been posting in ET for quite some time. Most of the stuff I post in here is a complete joke. And I know that I'm a 1/2 troll, 1/2 regular poster. I've been here long enough to understand that I will be trolled on this thread. I was just on Google Talk with a fellow buy side IT dude about what I posted in ET, about systematic trading and etc. I've never had the chance to post and paste stat. figures on hard file, so I was planning on posting a few code snippets for people to run tests on their own using F#... or .NET. Anyways, the story is that I got an offer from the dude asking me if I wanted to start a blog. I've gotta a few questions: 1. How will the IT dude make money off the blog? My threads are never popular (look at how many "reads" I have) ... so then how else would the guy make money??? 2. Any unforeseen benefits? Will you quit ET and post on a blog?
