I'm thinking of writting an article for a CPMS newsletter but am stuck on what topic to choose.  Does anyone have any ideas for good topics for an article?  I'm a newbie (less than 3 years collecting) so it would have to be written from that perspective.

Hi Actuary6

Here is what I would suggest..

Diary of your 1st three years.

Include
- how you got started/why
-   what friends/relatives think of your collecting
-   mistakes and lessons you have learned.
-   availability of collectable material and how you have learned to find it.
- toss in a bit of humor and even some embarrassment, if you have had any on how you got a certain note(s).

This kind of article will make us all think back to when we started collecting too.

Thanks,
Simpson105378

A good topic would be  " How to build a great collection on limited funds "

I like that idea rocken!  I'll see where that takes me. 

Simpson105378, I like your suggestion, too - I'll try to incorporate it without trying to sound too self-serving.  I definitely should touch on why I got started.

Good luck, actuary6.

Both of those ideas seemed really good I think they would both make great articles!

Excellent ideas! I look forward to seeing them come in. When you're done, please email your article to newsletter@cpmsonline.ca.

Thanks!

Thanks for all the help everyone!  I already started writting it, using rocken's suggestion as a starting point.  Brent, I'll try to get it in befoer the deadline for the next newsletter.
