Help yourself and knows the difference between self interest and vested interest !
Here is Self Interest!
Those hobbyist bloggers like Uncle8888 talked about self interest.
No hidden agenda. No snake oil selling. No vested interest! Made money. A moment of happiness! Lose money. Eat Panadols to ease headache and heartache. So far, Uncle8888 has three close conversation (actually should be self confession session) with real retail trader/investor and realized that we have to be very careful when listening before parting tuition fee to the well known. Just because they are well known, they appeared often in the newspapers and TV; they may have inspired you so much; but does it work for you is definitely different thing!

Real People. Real Story 1. He graduated from School of ChartWhatEverWin; but he was still losing money.

2. She graduated from School of Make10,000Millionaires and hoped to make enough to supplement her family expenses and becomes stay-at-home-mum. She didn't became millionaire and she gave UP! 3. She graduated from the same school as No 1 i.e. School of ChartWhatEverWin; but she was still losing money. So she thought that this School is not powerful enough. She paid for even higher course fee to attend Singapore's branded one. An Academy standard that was taught by millionaire trader and author himself. Don't play play.
Armed with two "degrees" from the different School; she also couldn't make it. She now followed Uncle8888's simple method in long run investing.
Patience and Discipline!
