Kong Celebrates 100 Blog Posts!

With the book deal inked, and most of the movie details pretty much squared away ( although I refuse to be played by Leonardo Dicaprio unless he agrees to lose at least 10 pounds first) I’m taking the rest of the weekend to celebate my small short-term goal of 100 posts here at Forex Kong.

It may not seem like much..to most of you (although I seriously doubt a single one of you will likely even try) but for me….the commitment and labor required to sit down day after day, and bang out a page or so – has been no simple /easy task. A lot of this stuff is pretty damn “dry” at times and believe me – there’s been more than a day or two I’ve sat here scratching my head thinking “what the hell am I gonna say about that?”

I’ve learned to curb my toungue…I’ve learned to respect my audience (to a certain extent) and I’ve proven to myself yet again that if only to try – generally sets you apart from the 99 out of 100 people – who’ll likely never try anything new another day of their lives…….let alone set sites on succeeding at it.

So I trade….I build spaceships….I cook……I play music…I fish/hike and swim………………………………..and now I blog.

Get used to it people – I’m not going anywhere.

    I do like your comment about about attempting or trying… nothing ventured nothing gained. Congrats on meeting a goal!

    well .. i am new to your site and willing to see what you have to say…
    but….stating that “I’ve learned to curb my tongue” and then saying “although I seriously doubt a single one of you will likely even try”.. run against each other…do you realise that? Perhaps it is just your turn of phrase…but it does feel demeaning to your readers..an unnecessary comment really…

    anyway.. your results are what will ultimately count…is there a list of past and current positions somewhere on the site? I see you say that last year you were up 112%…

      Ooooh we’ve got a live one here! Welcome Grifferr!

      This is a private / personal blog for starters – so it’s pretty unlikely you’ll catch my “writing style” change anytime soon, and if at times you yourself find it “demeaning” …well I guess that speaks for itself.

      Off the top you sound a tad hostile – perhaps a long string of losing trades, or current positions deep in the red – or perhaps you own blog isn’t doing quite so well?

      Please feel free to read / hang around and comment…of course…..only if you are “willing”.

      No lists no – but if you’re interested in a picture of the beach from the rooftop deck here on the beautiful Caribbean Ocean – I can post one.

        as you say, its a personal blog so i guess you can write in any style you please…I was simply noting that you were hoping to curb your tongue and, to me at least, it seemed like you could be more successful..

        moving on…did i come across as hostile? seems strange to me..but then to link that to “a long string of losing trades” seems bizarre…

        ok so no list of trades..your choice of course…please post any pictures of the Caribbean Ocean and I will try to fathom the link…

        anyway…best wishes and looking forward to the set-ups….

          Im doing what I can to build the community here regardless of my tendencies to beat up on people a bit. The goal (as I hope most have gleened) is to push / motivate / spur / and possibly “inspire” people to get out of their routines / push past their fears / believe in themselves and try to do better. It may workd for some people -and certainly not for others.

          Keep and open mind I guess – and take it for what it is.

          What part of the globe are you from if you don’t mind me asking?

      Top top secret stuff Fred – I’m can’t even allow myself to “think” of taking pictures!

    Kong, sounds like you have a live one on the hook. I think people are more interested in your trading philosophy and style than your prose. However it takes all kinds to keep the world turning. Keep up the good work. I have followed your advice and turned some very nice profits, but I listened,listened and listened to you and guess what? Profits!!! Have a good one and keep up the blogs. Congrats on the 100. I have read them all. Dave

      As for the blog / writing well…..as I suggested he he he…I guess people can take it for what it is.
