This summer, my intention was to play some golf, spend some time with my family and write a few blog posts. As they say, the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
Unfortunately, injuries waylaid my golfing. First I got shoulder tendinitis. (Household tip: If you have a pot light that will not come out and you get frustrated, do not, I repeat, do not, pull as hard as you can downwards and ruin your shoulder). In addition, I had a strained groin (Golf tip: when your feet are in an awkward position due to an awkward lie and the grass is wet, do not swing as hard as possible). I did however eventually recover from both my injuries by late July and got in some golf including a 74 after 17 holes in my club championship that became an 82 after I choked with an 8 on the final hole (2nd golf tip: If you have been using your 5 iron to drive since your driver was inconsistent, do not switch back to your driver on the last hole).
Switching gears, I was much busier with client matters than I anticipated this summer and was unable to find the time I hoped to write some of my blog posts for the fall. In addition, after six years of writing this blog, I had a bit of a writer’s block, that seemed to break in late August.
In any event, I realized that I’m unable to continue to commit the energy and time required to write this blog on a weekly basis. I will be shooting for two to three posts a month, including guest blogs, which will likely increase in number.
This fall, some of the themes I will be writing about include:
1. Tax planning for those with disabilities. I will have a couple guest posts on that topic.
2. “The Taboo of Money”
3. Canada/ U.S. tax issues
4. I will also continue my “What Small Business Owners Need to Know” series.
So, in summary. I will be writing less this year and in all honesty, I am unsure whether I am staggering to the end or I will get a second wind and will be good for a few more years. See you next week.
You offer such incredible insight into Canadian Tax issues. I hope you stick around, even if it is just a couple times a month.ReplyDelete
thx Jessie, we will see how the fall goes and move on from there, but i will consider your idea.Delete
Glad you have recovered Mark! I agree with Jessie above - I really enjoy your blog posts and I'm not even a financial geek, so that's saying something. Cheers!ReplyDelete
Thx CSBO- I appreciate the kind words.Delete
Even if you trim it down to 12 pcs of sound insight a year it will be a dozen more than I get from most other blogs. I appreciate your writing. Regards, OrBotReplyDelete
Thx, there are many good blogs, but there is also a lot of fluffy stuff out there.
Agreed! Whatever level you have to cut it back to to avoid burning out is far better than nothing.Delete
Thx Nathan. I appreciate your long time patronageDelete
