A Brief Blog Profile: The Oblivious Investor
The word "oblivious" in the name of the financial blog Oblivious Investor might sound like a bad thing. This might imply a lack of knowledge or awareness. But in this blog, being oblivious is not a bad thing at all.
The author's goal is to direct readers' attention away from day-to-day obsessions of the market. Be oblivious to that, and you'll be ok. Additionally, if you diversify your portfolio and minimize costs, you'll be even better off.
The Oblivious Investor is written by Mike Piper. He's married and lives in St. Louis.
For years, Piper worked in the investment game, but now makes his living writing books to help people invest their money wisely. Piper seems to care for his readers; he answers their questions. There's even a newsletter to provide readers with tips on "simple, low-maintenance investing."
