[HeroPress] My Semi-Autobiography & Why I Am Retiring

I have been slowly talking about my retirement plan for a while in the closed circle. But I have seen how most people felt confused about my plan. So I had to elaborate.

I was approached by Chris ‘Topher’ DeRosia of HeroPress multiple times about writing my story, and ultimately I was able to complete, on the verge of my Birthday!

This is a very very large write-up, could be easily considered as (semi) autobiography. It describes my position and life clearly and I wanted to really share why we need to rethink the priorities of life and the value of family. You will be always busy, you will always have an important task, and crucial phase of life, ultimately this could become a trap. And it will never let you think what life could have mean, what you are probably missing, how you probably will never get back, the lost time with your close one.

But, its just my thought, story of my life, crafted in about 9000 words! I am grateful if you decide to read, I am delighted if it helps you somehow. Research says both reading and writing is therapeutic!

Start Writing, Its Important! And Notes From Matt Mullenweg

Matt Mullenweg on Business Insider.
Matt said – “If I can become a better writer, perhaps I can become a better thinker.”

Writing is very important. Its effective, it has long lasting effects. I hate phone call, as I find it’s over-rated, it obviously has lots of use, but its counter productive in many case.

And now in the year 2016, its so easy to write. Write for yourself, take a piece of paper, open up a notes, or Evernote. If you are ready to write for others, start a blog, and WordPress make it very easy for anybody, does not even cost a dime to start.

#WPDrama and We, The WordPress Community *Experts!

This post is a mere comments that I posted in Tom McFarlin post about #wpdrama & the WordPress Community.

I am looking from another side. A community that old (11 years now), and this big, bunch of things is bound to happen.

Just to give a simple idea, for a guy who is in this community for say for 6 years, he always thinks in himself, he knows this community, he fell very close to it, and eventually that started him give a kind superior (maybe wrong word, can’t find the better one ATM) attitude. He started to think he owns something, he has to have a say in everything about this community under his radar. And that goes same for a guy who is in community for 2 or even for entire 11 years.

So, maybe for others like you and me, he does not mean much, or maybe to him, we don’t mean much. But we all have a say, we all have got an attitude, we all think we know this better, and we are the ultimate bricks that makes this community.

You see, thats where democratization should take effect. It always should be beyond us. There is always a greater rest. When you build something that big, defining, even its beyond the founder, beyond the core people behind. Yes, its all important. Some stuff are the key to the project, some are the souls, but end of the day its about people. This #Drama is what we create, we, the so called *Expert.

And yes, please criticize me as I call myself *(WordPress Enthusiast)!
