You probably saw this coming, and so did I. I’m going to pull the plug from this cheesy blog. All good things come to an end. The FI journey has been completed (we are now part of the double comma club), there is not much more to report. It’s time for the next phase in life, and a blog is not longer a part of that.
This blog has been a great tool to find out how we would get to the point where money is no longer a limiting factor for a good life. It has been a great tool to organise our thoughts on money matters, on investing and various other parts of FIRE and life.
The blog and the meetups which we organised with various people have resulted in many new friends. And in addition resulted in some great conversations, business ideas, business arrangements, laughs and more. I’ve virtually no regrets from starting and running the blog. It was probably one of the smartest thing’s I’ve done. But at the height of it, with multiple posts per week and a full time job, I did develop RSI. It’s taken me more than 3 years go get rid of that, it’s better now, but still not completely gone. I’m not sure if it every will.
I want to thank every one of you that visited the blog, left comments, gave inspiration for blog posts and went to one of our meetups. It’s been a blast and a great ride over the past (almost) 6 years. I’ve definitely enjoyed it and I hope that you did too.
The Twitter feed I will keep (as I still have fun with that), as well as the domain name. Heck, I might even find a very cheap hosting package and keep the blog online a bit longer (read after coming Septemer) to help new FIRE enthusiasts, but there will be no new content. It’s been a interesting ride. The End!
