Like Jason Calacanis I’ve been thinking about retiring from blogging for a while.
I’ve been blogging now for over 5 years, 1626 posts, 3 companies, 3 children and 10 kilos. I’ve really enjoyed the experience and have had so many fantastic opportunities come out of it. I’ve met some great people.
There are a few reasons for retiring from regular blogging. Most of the goals I set out when I started I’ve achieved, and there are not enough hours in the day to get through what I need to get through - especially with a young family and growing business.
I remain passionate about developing software companies from New Zealand and creating a step change in our broadband connectivity. I’ll continue to drive those issues forward as much as I can.
I’ve tried to share my journey and some of the things I’ve learned as much as I can. I’m proud that it has motivated other people to do big things and share experiences so that we can make the boat go faster.
My favourite aspect of blogging has been revealing that we’re all just people and that business can be a lot of fun. I think my favorite post was the one on bed time stories.
I fully encourage people to take up blogging, and I look forward to following the stories of other entrepreneurs going global and sharing their highs and lows.
Thank you and goodnight.
