My Blog Post Award: Here’s Bens Advice; KISS If You Want To Profit!

First a quick reminder of what the ‘Blog Post Award’ is all about:

The idea is simple: Every time I find a blog post (new or old) that I think will add value for my readers, I will bookmark it and put it on my list to win the: Blog Post Award.

I will then write a post similar to this one explaining why I have decided on that particular post.

I will also link to the post from my blog post Award icon situated near the top of my side bar

For a full list of previous winners visit my ‘Blog Post Award ’ Page.

Now on to the main event; The winner of my  ‘Blog Post Award’ :

From the Sports Trading Life blog.

In these days of rapid technological advancement where everyone is trying to use the latest gadget or piece of software to gain an advantage in the markets, I found it very refreshing to read this excellent short post from Ben, the author of the Sports Trading Life blog, on the merits of using a good old fashioned notepad and pen to aid our sports speculation.

Don’t get me wrong, I do believe that there is a time and a place for using the latest technology, but as Ben so eloquently points out; you can very often gain far more by The KISS (Keep It Super Simple )approach, or in other words by simply taking and keeping notes on what we are doing.

I for one use a notepad and pencil everyday as I find them a simple and invaluable aid to my attempts to gain an edge in the sports speculation Markets.  

I hope you have enjoyed this post.

Stay Patient


  1. I always thought KISS stood for Keep It Simple, Stupid.

    Certainly I can relate to that more! (lol!).


  2. Yes Rowan

    That's what Mrs Patient Speculation normally says to me and I thought that was just a pet phrase she had made up for when talking to me!!! ;-)

  3. Thanks for the support, it really is about keeping things simple sometimes!

  4. Hi Ben

    No problem, I for one need to constant remind myself of the need to keep things simple, so your post really appealed to me.
