Lightning inquired a couple days ago about how my mother was doing and also how my new site #1SportsPicks was coming along.
Initially, let me say that I really appreciate the interest! When I first wrote of my mother's cancer diagnosis last year, lightning actually took the time to give me a phone call and offer words of encouragement. Don't tell him I said so, but I think he's the tops.
Mom is doing well. She had some follow up tests done in December, and the tests indicated that her lung cancer was in remission. Good news! She still comes to work for a few hours each day. She pays the bills for the company and answers the phone in the mornings. In the afternoons she watches "Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Jeopardy, and Dr. Phil. Her next follow up will be sometime next month.
#1SportsPicks has been a mixed bag thus far. I launched the site in November and have put a lot of hours in trying to market it. I've had a little success and have picked up some minor advertising revenue. Currently I and am negotiating with one other Sports Book site. On the down side, I haven't been able to create the traffic I had hoped I would, but it is slowly increasing. I'm always open to any marketing suggestions.
I've also been disappointed with my results picking winning teams. This marks the first time I've attempted to wager on either hockey or basketball, and it's certainly been a learning experience. My bankroll is down a little in both sports, but nothing disastrous. Plus, I'm learning every day, so I expect to improve before the seasons run their course.
My offer for a free #1SportsPicks tee shirt is still open. Basically I'm asking that you include a link to my site on your blog or website. A few of you have already taken advantage (grrouchie, lightning, KenP), which I really appreciate, and each will receive a shirt once they are ready. Click here for the details if you would like to be included.
I still haven't ordered the tee shirts. I have the logo, but haven't decided on a tagline. I have a few in mind and am leaning towards one of them, but I am willing to let everyone vote if they are so inclined.
Here's what I've come up with so far;
"Odds That End Well"
"Your Bankroll's Best Friend"
"Our Picks Line Your Pockets"
"The Profit Prophet"
Which one do you like best? Any "write in" candidates?
So, that's the latest on both subjects. Thanks for asking :)
