The latest at Credit Writedowns

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to update you on the goings-on here at Credit Writedowns in the new year.

  • First, we have moved our servers to a new service provider and made some server configuration changes that I hope speed things up here. The site had serious problems that caused it to crash a lot and I got sick of this as i am sure you did. I used the fundraiser money to make this upgrade. Let me know if it’s working for you and if it isn’t, what else needs to be done.
  • Next, Credit Writedowns Pro is off nicely. I have put up three weekly articles for Gold members already plus a slew of stuff in the forum for Gold and Silver members. The last weekly was called "Where Europe is headed and what it means for investors". I am experimenting here a bit still so I need some feedback on how you want content pushed. It’s great that you can go back to the archives and read or re-read content but a lot of people would like to get stuff pushed to them via e-mail or get alerts via Facebook or Twitter. Please let me know what works for you by emailing me at [email protected].
  • Also, the introductory offers for Credit Writedowns Pro will expire within the week. As a special introduction, we have discounted Credit Writedowns Pro and rebated it for those who contributed to the fundraiser. Those specials will only be on offer for a limited time. Silver is still $119 and Gold is $299. That will move up to $149 and $399, so sign up today. As an aside, let me also say that I have got some feedback on the sign-up process – and it needs a bit of retooling. I had the payment process moved to PayPal because it is easier and gives comfort about the security of one’s payment details. If you have any other suggestions, let me know.
  • The best way to read Credit Writedowns is on our site. But you can also get us in a lot of other ways: via RSS, free daily email newsletter, twitter, my twitter, and Facebook, and my Facebook page as well. We have a free weekly newsletter but because the RSS feed is not large enough it doesn’t spit out all of the articles and so I’m not sure what to do with that one. Depending on what members suggest, I may hive off the member content onto a separate site so that we can serve you customised content. Let me know how you want it.

My goal is to get  you 7 to 15 articles a day from myself and other trusted economic thought leaders. A big goal for 2012 is to make the site more reliable and faster. I hope we are doing that already.

Anyway, that’s the update. I hope you like the changes and I look forward to hearing from many of you in the coming weeks and months.

    This is one way to kill goodwill. Had I not donated, I could have subscribed to silver for $149 like everyone else.
    As it is now, the cost to me will in reality be $169 because I took the time to give a donation.

      I don’t follow you. Anyone that donated has the donation amount refunded upon signing up.

        Yes you are right, I misunderstood your email, so sorry about that.
