  • Hi mate,
    Yeah, a lot of people treat it as a zero sum game, to their own detriment. Congrats on getting started and best of luck with the blog.

    You’ve already learnt that commenting and linking in comments will get you visits 🙂 No worries at all about not using my affiliate link, just happy there are people starting blogs.

  • Erik – SoccerBetBlog

    Hi Steve. You were one of the reasons, I started my own blog http://Soccerbetblog.com .

    I have grown a lot since then. As I wanted to be super honest also with my results, then it got me more serious and now my profits are through the roof on some months. Including August. 🙂

    Thanks Steve for the inspiration.

  • Hey Erik,

    Really nice looking site and your results are kicking arse. Really glad I was an inspiration for that. Keep up the great work.

    Thanks
    Steve

  • Hey Steve.

    Just recently found your blog and it is a fantastic read. Really encouraging. I liked your back and forth with Skeeve (3.3.2014) and his tipping service that you felt he was a being little unconfident with, which in turn made you feel less confident with the service being provided. I thought it was a very valid point you made and one that I hadn’t even considered when posting my own info/tips. I sometimes vent my frustrations online to let my followers know why I haven’t posted a tip; because of odds movement or it is no longer a worthwhile bet, for whatever reason. But I now realise that it can have a negative effect on your following, though it does also give an authenticity to your service. It’s a balancing act I guess. All about the equilibrium.

    I guess the main issue I have with this game is the time it consumes. It also has an effect on your tips if you spend to much time on your content and effects your content if you spend too much time on your tips. (Equilibrium) This is the main thing I struggle with but I just need to cut back more. I Vlog my betting adventures but it is time consuming how I do it and the content I feel suffers a lot so I’m cutting back on the vlogging from now on and this should improve results.

    I think people are just be too scared to post their losing tips on a blog as I don’t believe that many have the right mentality to make profits in this game let alone post embarrassingly genuine results. In my opinion you are correct that writing your thoughts down helps immensely in this game and blogging is a fantastic way to force yourself into the reality of gambling.

    Wow that was a long post, sorry 🙂

    I have a vlog post about you this week if you’re interested: http://www.gambler-anonymous.com/23-tip-iceberg/

    I didn’t realise that you tipped as well though until after I posted the video so in it I state that I’m not sure if you tip.

    Fantastic Blog.
    Keep it up Steve!

    Here’s a few really good YouTube links for help making your own blog.
    They’re quite long and in-depth but really help in understanding and creating a website/blog. Plus you don’t have to implement all of the stuff on your site. Just give it a go.

    Hope all that wasn’t too spamy.

  • Nice site, i like the anonymous angle.

    I run a tipping service now but do not tip myself. I am like 99.9% of other people and would be terrible at betting without the help of Jonno from Sportpunter.

    I had to delete the links to youtube as they were having an impact on the site, but did leave your link. It wasn’t “too” spammy at all.. haha

    All the best with the site.

  • Punters Post

    Finally got around to it Steve, thanks to a little inspiration from yourself. Just posted a review of my first season following the SP models. http://www.punterspost.com/2016/09/07/2016-afl-nrl-regular-season-punting-review/

  • Great first post, a shame the AFL season was poor, but that NRL season was amazing. Will be interesting to follow your journey.

    Hi Steve,
    Given the bookies look for any excuse to limit or at the very least promo ban punters, wouldn’t running a blog put flashing lights on any of the accounts that you have?

    What has been your experience since you openly publish your profits? Are you banned from Aussie books and simply use sites like Pinnacle?
    Cheers,
    Richard

  • My own personal accounts were bonus banned a long time ago. But if you are silly enough to use your real name (like me) than it could result in accounts being closed quicker.. Most people are a lot brighter than me and make up a pseudonym

    I haven’t been able to use Aussie corporate books (for more than a few hundred) pretty much from a year or two after I started.

    Hey Steve, just wondering when you started your blog did you do the cheapest option? I think it’s like 3.50$ a month or did you do one that was a little more expensive? Just starting mine out and would like it get it up and running before march madness. I follow college basketball religiously and would like to start a blog where I can put my picks out there and see if anyone has a comment on them. Also would like to make a little money doing it, so if there’s any more advise other than the great stuff you have up above it would be much appreciated.
    Thank you
    Joe

  • Hey Joe,
    I just choose whatever was cheap and once the site became popular, I moved it to a little more expensive host.

    The only advise I can give is to keep at it and be consistent. For the first few years you will think the only people reading your blog is your mum and your cat. But as long as the content is good, people will start coming and sharing it and the site will grow.

    I also wouldn’t think about making any money from it for at least 2 years. Even the new startup I am launching soon, I don’t expect to turn a profit for over 2 years.

    All the best with the site.
