I'm Back

Hi everyone, I know it's been a while, I'm sorry for that. I nearly became a one post wonder there. One of those people who starts a blog with great enthusiasm, makes a post and then disappears. That's not the case though - just don't have the time to do much else beyond researching my bets, running the advisory service and answering hundreds of reader emails I receive each week.

I'm sure it's obvious to my readers/subscribers that a lot of the time I either can't find the time to write, can't be bothered, or as is usually the case - don't have much to say that hasn't already been said on other excellent combat sports news outlets. 

The reason for the fewer blog posts and betting tips is that most of my previews and all my strongest news, is saved for the daily email service. This is a subscription based pay service, subscribers receive my daily notes every morning, these are written in newsletter format and usually include a brief look back at the events of the previous day and full preview of all sporting events taking place that day, or in the near future, which interest me. At busy times and that means most weekends, there is also a follow up email, sent later in the day, so an average of 10-11 emails are written every week.

One of the reasons I'm keeping this blog going is simply due to the fact it has helped me so much this year with keeping my discipline. When I've been through some bad times punting this year, the blog has helped a great deal and after the last two days, I'm hoping to use this to let off some steam tonight as I'm fuming with myself.

The only thing that keeps me going is I know deep down I'm much better than I've shown everyone in the last couple of months. I think I'm much, much better but I now have a lot to prove again. I've been here before and I'll be here again in the future no doubt, so it's time to stand up and be counted again. Let's hope I can rise to the challenge.

With regards to my betting, I know I messed up a bit last weekend but I'm not going to be too hard on myself. I've done well this year and after last month, I can't moan too much about a bad month. I'll get it back next month!

Leaving things dead like this for so long after my last loss was regrettable however, I was overly harsh towards my last prediction. I was mad at myself because I know better than that. After all, it was not as bad as I was expecting. That is at least some good news I don't mind making a tit of myself over.  Tit making over (hopefully), lets move on, the fight continues...
