The swan song of local bloggers

As the market transforms back and fro into a beast that is neither a bull or a bear (perhaps it had always been a hybrid chimera of sort - a bull with bear head for instance), I noticed that more and more old timer bloggers are slowly exiting the blogging scene. I say that with a tinge of heartache, because some of them had been blogging together with me since I started circa 2006 period, right near the peak of the bull market. 6 years had since passed, with each of them patiently and industrially churning out articles after articles, sometimes to an unappreciative crowd of anonymous users, and hopefully not blogging just to yourself.

I guess there's a time and tide for everything. As we grow older, a lot of activities will exact their demands on our energy and time. Suddenly passions that you once had might have gone uninteresting and unloved with the passing of time, but that's only natural, since new activities might also interest you more and you would willingly devote more of your resources on them. Like the market that we, the small group of local financial bloggers, discuss, poke at and debate relentlessly, the blog that we had painstakingly nurtured also has its own bearish and bullish cycles.

I'll try to keep this blog for as long as possible, but I do not guarantee a full premium cbox features in the future as these premium features requires me to pay for your enjoyment. But as avid readers and followers of this blog can see, I've reduced tremendously the amount of blog posts here because I simply cannot muster the energy and patience to blog about another market related stuff. I felt that I've done that and covered that many times in the blog's illustrious (hopefully) 6 years since 2006, so it's just a rehash and churning of stale ideas.

Walk with me, blog articles by articles, and we shall see where this road will lead us.

There is a time and season for everything. I've slowed down my fivecentstencents posts as well as my daughter and other interests take precedence over my blog :-)

Be well and prosper.

Hi PG,

Yup, time and season for everything. I noticed that you slowed down as well :) Like me, haha!


Ya, do not be sad. I'm still lingering around, maybe I don't say much, but I say a lot by saying nothing at all ;) Thks for your encouragement!

Hi bro8888,

No lah, dun want to go into names. Some are slowly their posts, some disappeared entirely, some went to study, some busy with work, some busy with family life. Who ever said blogging is passive income? hahaha!

I thought you have passive coming from those ads? No?
