I decided quite a while back that I should restrict the amount of time I spend on blogging and its related activities. So, nothing more than 2 hours a day. I think that is a fairly generous amount of time to spend daily on a hobby.
I know people who are spending a lot more time on Pokémon Go now. That is not something I understand but we decide on how we would spend our time and must be comfortable with the consequences. The latter is something people think less about.
I am also spending more time with family, gardening, exercising, shopping, cooking, watching anime and k-drama. So, even in retirement, I am kept busy as there are many things which I am spending more time on.
Blogging is not a job and I hope it won't become a job because I might not enjoy it as much then.
Some might notice that I have more updates on my Facebook wall than in my blog these days. This is because Facebook is very convenient.
AK is terribly lazy.
Bad AK! Bad AK!
Whenever I do that, I also update the comments section of my blog here. So, for those who do not follow me on Facebook and would like to have more updates, following the comments section of my blog is something to consider.
Here is a recent email exchange with a reader on the subject:
Saizen made an anoucement. I read that we will be paid the residual sum
and Sime Derby
buying shares at about 3 cents.
I do not understand at all.
Like to understand how do you see this development and your plan of action.
Thanks for your help.
I am holding on to my investment to receive the payout. :)
The REIT will issue new shares to new investor and I get to stay on as an old investor.
Hi AKThank You. Likely we have to pay for new the new shares. What
is the cost and the net gain for old investor.This is the area I am
not clear.Appreciate advise.
I shared this on my FB wall:
"May I ask what is happening to Saizen? I've read the document
released today but still do not understand. wish you would talk to
yourself n explain in simple terms to us! Thanks!"
"We will be paid 9.87c a unit and still get to keep our investment in the REIT, it seems.
"The REIT will issue new units priced at 3.484c to new investors to partially fund purchase of some Australian properties.
"Whether it is a good deal or not is hard to say at this moment but to get paid and yet retain an investment that could possibly generate
income for me in future sounds good."
Thanks AK.i do not go faceboik.Why do not you post it on your regular website.
I actually posted this in the comments section of my blog too.
You can follow the comments section of my blog for updates, if you like. I provide info on how to do this under "Following my blog" in the left side bar.
I don't always have the time or inclination to blog. So, the comments section or my Facebook wall are quick ways for me to do updates. :)
Following comments in ASSI.
