Hugs and
Heartfelt Thanks to all my Readers
flies and it is almost 5 months since I started my “virgin” blog post
on 1 Mar this year. I enjoyed every moments of blogging since, and somehow it
already becomes a part of my life. One single biggest joy is the satisfaction
received when your blog is being read by readers all over the world. The
feeling is even better, when you received compliments and comments from
readers. This definitely motivates, and I really hope to produce more quality
articles as time passes. Then again, it does not mean that negative feedbacks
or criticisms are not welcome, as I aim to improve myself continuously.
For now,
I am extremely grateful and appreciative to all my readers. Even bigger applause,
for those who dropped me a note, or commented on my articles before.

20,000 views in less than 5 months!
My blog
views in the last two months have been absolutely fantastic for my standard –
Average of close to 300 each day. This is impossible without the help of “Singapore Investment Bloggers”, to
include Rolf Suey blog into this wonderful platform that provides an updated
listing of all Investment Bloggers based in Singapore. I am also appreciative
to other bloggers who include Rolf Suey in their blogrolls such as B from 3FsAK from ASSI and Singapore Stock Market News. Thank
you so much! For now, I do not have too many blog exchanges, but I definitely
welcome more blog exchanges from other bloggers, going forward. Start
contacting me! 

It is all about Time and Effort
I must
confess that blogging can be one of the most arduous tasks around. Blogging
requires lots of time and effort and often entail hours of research, writing,
edit and re-editing.  During many occasions, I can even exhaust almost
days for detail and informative posts write-up!
For my
novice standard, I humbly feel that the pre-requisite of writing a blog post,
involves lots of reading from many sources to ensure the information published
is as accurate as possible. Then I need to re-read the articles over and over
again to extract only the most important and relevant information. The bits and
pieces information will then need to be summarized to make it
“comprehensive and yet not over lengthy!” – I know I tend to be longwinded,
because I am worry that the readers may miss out important information. 
Many of
my posts will also include the final icing of Rolf’s view. However Rolf’s views
can be biased at times, so please bear with me and do not take it too seriously
if you disagree. The intention is always, “to be positive and constructive in
the spirit of sharing good information”.
Why Rolf
Suey Blog
There are
few reasons why I started the Rolf Suey blog. One reason is to “escape” my
comfort zone arising from a routine mid-career crisis. Besides, I also realise
the importance of promoting financial literacy and it makes me wonder why so
little of financial knowledge is emphasized in our society today. This is when
retirement seems so remotely far in Singapore today. Aside from “money”
matters, this blog also advocates personal developments and share interesting
investment news and knowledges. In particular, I am most interested in the Oil
and Gas sector, of which I aim to share with my readers information to my best
of knowledge. Finally Rolf Suey blog will be a library for my reader, me and
most importantly, my children when they grow up.
“Rolf Suey”
when the letter rearrange means “Yourself”
I sincerely
hope all of us can truly find the “Real You – Mojo!” one day, and live life to
the fullest happily. For those who already found the “Mojo”, kudos to
you! For those still finding, keep searching and do not give up! And for those
who do not even bother to find, hope you can start soon, and its better late
than never!

I shall
end my post with a Big Thank
 to all my readers, once
again – From the always “long-winded” Rolf Suey.

  1. Hi Rolf

    The best thing about blogging is as you said the ability to contribute to the learning of others as well as our own learning.

    When I look back at my posts which I started 4 years ago I realized how much ive grown in terms of the knowledged learnt within these 4 years. Learning never stops so im hoping the next 4 years could even be better 😉

    Way to go!!! You did well.

  2. Hi B,
    I enjoy your blog a lot, and it is easy to spot the strong "substance" just by reading a few posts. 4 years is a long time and it probably require sustained passion to persist. I definitely hope to follow suit.
    Indeed, Blogging is about learning, which I was not entirely aware before I started blogging. I enjoy learning new things and blogging is something that keep the brain younger despite age going up. Thanks for the compliments anyway and lets continue to persist what we love.
    Thanks Rolf.

  3. Hi L Young,
    Thanks for the compliment. I hope to improve my writing skills over time so that I can continue contribute more meaningful articles in my best ability.
