A lot of people have asked me why I’ve stopped blogging.
It’s not because the government and opposition have improved. If anything, they’re worse now than ever.
And it’s not because I care less.
It’s simply because I don’t have the time or money to continue.
I have 3 young kids, a wife, a business and a mortgage. Every minute I spend researching and blogging is a minute away from them. And at the moment, they need me more than Australia does.
I’ve made a commitment to my family and to myself: no more researching and blogging during work hours or while the kids are awake. There’s not much time left in the day after that, and I do like to spend some of it with my wife!
Of course, I still scan my social media feeds throughout the day, looking for enlightening posts to share. Usually with some comment from me. If you’d like to receive them, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Google+. But I’m afraid I don’t have time to write my own detailed posts.
If I were a cynical person, I’d say this is exactly the outcome our government wants. Keep the people too poor, busy and tired to focus on dissent. But we all know that’s not true, right. RIGHT?! ;-\
Hopefully I’ll see you in my various social media stomping grounds. But if not, I’ll be back here, sooner or later. And I’ll see you then.
