Lessons from 6 weeks of Angel Investing.  Interesting question from Mr. Cummings.  I was up the other night straight hating on my own blog and this question popped through.  It is a good question, but I’m still trying to rethink my blog and would appreciate any thoughts on that.  It’s not just the writing – I enjoy that, it is getting bored with it,...
