After all this wondering how to make money I think the best way could be just to put practically all of my money in shares- when I think the price is right. Leave money that I need in the next year to be on safe side. You could say that's 'risky' but I'm sure in long run I'd make good cash.

What Percentage of Money should you have in Shares?

Had interesting thought... it wouldn't matter if you had 'too much money' (percentage wise) in shares as long as they went up and did well. You probably shouldn't invest money that you think you might need in the next 2 years... but had another thought. It'd be much better to buy shares that went up then have to sell them in say 1.5 years rather than have lousy rate of interest. So I guess I'm talking myself into SELLING some shares for the first time in over 7 years if I have to. Note there are none I would sell atm!

Adding to this after a bit more thought. Of course... the shares can go DOWN. So really the longer you can afford to leave them the better. And it also matters how much time you can spend on shares to an extent. If you're working full time you may find it difficult to buy and sell when you need to- although you could still put in buy and sell limit orders. The better you are at understanding shares the shorter time frame you could have...

But anyway, I would recommend my readers if they can afford it to have at least some money in shares. You have to know what you're doing, but it really isn't that hard. Read my Fool posts and other Fool writers. I have some more posts written too- I'll be writing about shares that I own at least at first. Probably for quite a while though.

Share Writer!

Hi all, So... what have I been doing?

Investing more in shares really. I've come to the conclusion that I'm comfortable having much more of my money in shares. Got a good track record and just like watching them go up. Interest rate is lousy. Even had the thought recently... I could just put money into shares that potentially I might need in two years... slightly risky I guess, but also risky in another way leaving it to earn little interest. I haven't actually done this yet but would probably be OK with doing so.

At the moment I can't write Fool articles because of the change in Yahoo syndication... hopefully I will in the future though! So I'm looking at potentially writing for other share websites, will keep you posted! I've reached out to another Fool writer for some advice on this and any other advice is welcome!

Thank You

So... busy days! I wrote here that I'd like to write for Fool and within a few days this happened. My first post even featured on iii. Four posts published now in total and more written...

Just one of those surreal instances where you want something to happens and it does... just today I've had by far my highest number of views ever- one thousand people have seen my site in the past twenty four hours. So a big THANK YOU for everyone who's read my Fool articles... this is one of the biggest impacts I've had as a writer. Been a member there for nine and a half years now and it's always the first site I recommend in person to people wanting to learn about shares. Yet... there's more! There's a great community at Fool and I'd strongly recommend you check out the message boards there too. I post as Huddersfield Mark. You can find a wealth of information about more or less ANYTHING- and free as well, just like the report.

So... what does this mean? Means I'm going to be writing different things for different sites hopefully! Obviously I still want to write more for Fool, yet I do want to write about ideas too. So I've been contacting sites about this and hopefully that comes true too.
