I'm Moving!


After hosting my blog on Blogger since December 2006 the time has come for me to move to pastures new and I'm very pleased to let you know that I'm moving to a self hosted site.

Why?

Well here's a few reasons:

  • I can't control Blogger. If they wish, they can turn my blog off at any time, and after having the blog for so long it leaves an uneasy feeling.
  • It's quite difficult on blogger for people to find and read my historic posts.  As the history of the blog grows it's a shame that some of the decent stuff (in my opinion) has got lost.
  • It's a chance for me grow. I've had interest from other traders recently regarding the possibility of holding cricket trading courses and if this is to happen I need somewhere better to promote them. 
Okay, so now you know that I'm going I'd really like you to come with me on the next part of my journey.

My new blog address is http://www.markiverson.com/blog/blog/ so please bookmark it or sign-up to my RSS feed.

If you currently link to my blog from your blog/website I'd really appreciate it if you could re-direct the link to the new site.

Here's to the future and I'll see you on the other side!

Glum


With the sun not shining and with no end in sight to the lousy weather this promises to be a very uninspiring summer for me. Seriously, how can we have so much rain? In June, Wales saw 205mm of the stuff which surpassed the previous record of 183.1mm quite easily.  When you consider that the UK average is only 72.6mm that's a lot! As you'd expect with all that going on, cricket matches have been called off all over the place which hasn't been good news for me, but I've always understood it to be a risk.  That doesn't make me feel any better though, so the only thing for me to do is reflect and make plans for when things take a turn for the better.

Talking about reflection....

I finished Quarter 2 31.94% up on last year.  A good result mainly down to an improved IPL, but as July and August have a knack of promising more than they deliver I'll just need to make the most of events as and when they come along.


On the bright side, I'm currently working on two side projects that I'm quite excited about.  Will they come to fruition?  I hope so as I've spent quite a bit of time and energy on them, but as they're not quite there yet I'll keep them under my hat for now.  Watch this space over the next couple of months!
