Farewell myaesi!

This is my last post on the myaesi blog. Although I won’t be taking it off the air for quite some time yet, I will not be posting new material, or replying to comments. Over the coming days and weeks, I’ll be disabling comments on all posts and updating relevant pages with a auto notice.


I have been writing here since 2004. At first, there was little interest in this rather niche blog. I am pleased to say, however, that our readership has grown steadily over the years, especially after the internet went mainstream. The blog has been a growth experience for me and had been a very handy conversation-starter.


However, all good things must come to an end, and it’s time for me to move on. There are many others now writing about aesi, and doing so very well and more prolifically than I am able to manage these days. I must also honour the key lesson that my recent reflections has taught me: If I want to achieve some of the things that I aspire to, I have to narrow my focus and apply my energy to fewer projects.


Thank you very much for being part of the myaesi journey. I have appreciated every comment, pingback, email exchange and offline conversation over the years. This journey has never been about creating a super-successful blog or monetizing the content, although I have played lightly with both at times. For the most part, this blog has primarily served as a very public and honest account of my own giving away to the community which has given me so much. By drawing on the experiences of my aesi and working life, I have always chronicled my learning through this blog.


I trust that my experiences have been useful to you and have perhaps helped you to bring order and light to your own personal journey of AeSI.


In case you’re wondering – I’m certainly not abandoning my blogging ways. Quite the contrary. I have an active blog at where I explore my other interests in life.


Yours Truly,
