Seriously it's nice to be recognised by one's peers, and I for one enjoy the cut and thrust of some of the debates and discussions that fly across the interwebs via this medium. For Sultan's (and anyone else's) information I'm not that bothered about 'making it big' - either as a trader or as a blogger. I started blogging mainly to try to help with what I did, and still do albeit to a lesser extent, see as my main trading problem - discipline. I have found blogging to be an entirely enjoyable enterprise and it has been an enormous help to me as I wrestle with an arguably flawed general approach and a weak will. If, in so doing, anyone has picked up even the slightest inkling of a tip (even if it's to do the exact opposite of what I do!) then that's great.
It never once occurred to me that 60 people would have the slightest interest in what I have to say, yet here we are a year and a half down the road and I've had just shy of 60,000 page views. That's either one or two very dedicated fans or a reasonable readership!
I harbour no intentions or delusions of trading ever being anything but a hobby for me, but obviously it's nice to make a bit of money along the way. If anyone discovers the Holy Grail - my bid is a tenner for it! In the meantime I'll stick to the odd Correct Score or goals trades and dabble here and there in a sort of blundering manner. If I can take out sufficient money for the odd good beer and curry and not top up the account anymore I'll be happy!
