    Dear Blogger,

    I work for Wikinvest.com, an investing wiki with research about companies like those you blog about and concepts like oil prices and the credit crunch. I’ve been approaching top bloggers identified by our business development team about the Wikinvest Wire, a traffic-boosting, invitation-only blogwire for investing and finance blogs.

    We launched the Wire in early October and all of our Wire members have seen a significant jump in traffic and benefited from links to their blog showing up on other blogs and Wikinvest. If you’re interested in learning more about the Wire or becoming a Wire member, do get back in touch with me at vikram [at] wikinvest [dot] com.

    Have a great day ahead!

    Vikram
