Since this is a niche site I plan on creating a core set of content. Once that is done, the site

should take relatively little effort to update. In my case, the updated content is easily done in

the form of trades.

I've decided to spend an hour a day, every day, doing something for the site. Today it was on

brainstorming topic ideas.

Here's what I have so far:


1.Basics
 1.What are stocks
 2.What are options
 3.Is selling puts risky
 4.What are charts
 5.Why puts and not calls
2.Account Setup
 1.How do I enable selling puts
 2.Choosing a broker
3.Advanced
 1.What do I look for in a chart
 2.How do I pick an option
 3.How are options valued
 4.What are weeklies
 5.The Greeks – Delta, Gamma, Theta, Rho
4.Trades

The great thing about having a wordpress blog as the format is that I don't have to write these

posts in order. I can adjust the layout of the site after the fact.

If you have any ideas about selling puts for income that hasn't been hit by one of the above

topics, please respond below with your thoughts!

One thing that immediately jumped out at me, but certainly not as relevant to the weeklies as it is to the longer term contracts, is dividends affects on the contract. And then maybe a bonus note to discuss how contracts are adjusted when surprise events occur, such as: special one-time dividend (cite MSFT case), stock splits/reverse splits (cite one of many cases), and then a disclaimer that a surprise such as 9-11 is not going to adjust a contract.

Good suggestions!

Also, part of 3.5 above, I would suggest 'Keeping your eye on the earnings calendar'. Volatility implosions can help a seller, but the massive movement on an earnings event can also give a shockingly unpleasant surprise.

Very true. That'll probably be a separate post.
