1000 posts, woo-hoo!

Just noticed a big milestone in my stats over the weekend, I've just clocked up 1000 posts on the blog since I started way back in January 2008. Considering the number of blogs which die off within a matter of weeks, I reckon that's pretty special :)

Big thanks to everyone who has visited the site over the years, commented on posts, linked to my site on other places such as forums, or most recently, written guest previews for me. I have had media from America, Asia and Europe contact me, usually re match-fixing, as a direct result of this blog, plus a few analysts when the Betfair float was imminent.

And to celebrate, I'm pleased to announce that my Olympic previews will now be free and published here. I did have plans to run a subscription service via sites I have worked with before but we have decided against it. Swimming, athletics and hockey will be my specialties, in that order, and I hope to stretch a bit wider if time permits. Anyone who used the PuntingAce forum over the years will remember the strike rate of 'Mr O' during Olympic Games and World Championships. And there might even be room for some guest blogging..

  2. Hi Scott

    I read your blog fairly regularly and have done so since I found betting blogland. Yours is definitely one of the more well-considered and well-informed blogs out there and, as you rightly point out, hitting a 1,000 posts is indeed an achievement.

    Well done and do continue with your output. It's well worth reading.
