I started this blog on 19 May 2018. It has been slightly more than a year since I made the first post on this blog. It could have been earlier for me to start this blog. I have been procrastinating on whether to start the blog many years and months before 19 May 2019. I had many concerns and such concerns deterred me from delaying the start of the blog. I realise that such concerns are totally unfounded. The learned lesson is to get started and the rest of the concerns are secondary.
Some of my concerns are as such.
- Whether my blog postings would affect my status of employment. This is referring to the event in which my previous employer finds out that I am the writer of this blog. Such concern are totally irrelevant now.
- Whether I will be subject of the potential lawsuit in respect of my postings on this blog. I have seen example in which the bloggers of several blogs are taken to the court by the local government authority. Some of these bloggers were sentenced to imprisonments as well as the fine. Their blogs were ordered to be shut down by the courts of the said country. I think that this will be of less concern for me. My main focus on this blog is FIRE which is very unlikely to warrant the attention of the government authority. Having said such views, it is possible that the government authority might prosecute the bloggers for advocating FIRE. FIRE means that one does not have to work anymore. If one does not work, it means that there will be no income and the government authority will not be able to generate the tax revenue for the earned income.
Based on the above concerns, one will not be able to realise the dream of having the blog if he/she is concerned of the certain prosecution actions or employment termination. I feel that such concerns are a moot. One should take the calculated risks to realise his/her dream. No one will know what happens if the action is taken to realise the dream. It could be a success or failure. If one does not take any action, it will be a total failure. One only live once and it is worthwhile to make life as fulfilling as possible.
The above are my two cents of views.
