FXTrader Adventures blog – 2010 in review

Hello all, welcome to 2011 and a Happy New year to you all.  I truly hope that 2011 is a fantastic year for our readers on both a personal and trading level.

After a slow December I’m firing up the (new) laptop and starting to plan my year.  I was sent the following stats review by wordpress for our blog in 2010.  I though I’d share them with you.  We had 10,000 hits last year which is ok I suppose considering Sandy and I are traders first and foremost.  We don’t really advertise our blog and we should be writing a good deal more.  We have some big plans for 2011 which we look forward to sharing with you over the next few months.

One of the things we discussed was opening out the opportunity to other traders to write trading related posts.  I know that there are readers our there waiting to share their views on trading / the markets / a traders life or just commenting on Sandy and my trades!

So what do you think you could add to the blog?  How could you make it better?  We’d love to hear from you!

All the best for 2011!

FXTraders Paul & Sandy
