Sadly, I've come to the decision I have to take a break from blogging. The reason is I need to make some money and it has become obvious I can't do it writing a blog. I can and have made money trading stocks and options online. It is not easy. It is high stress and requires the ability to accept losses from time to time. That in itself is reason enough not to do it but it also requires a vast amount of time doing research in addition to spending most of each day following the market ups and downs.
The money is not for me. I don't need much and I'm comfortable. It is for my family who is young and struggling. I can't sit by and do nothing.
I have made friends, at least cyber friends if I never meet you in person. I don't want to lose any of you. I have enjoyed reading your blogs and comments immensely. For that reason I will be reading your blogs whenever possible. Thank you for supporting my blog, especially "Bugsy" which I loved writing and hopefully and can pick up again sometime in the future.
