A lot of people tell themselves that they would like to write a book during their retirement years. Indeed, leaving behind your memoirs can be a good idea when you are engaged in the process of legacy planning. Your family members will be able to gain an invaluable store of knowledge and wisdom by having access to personal experiences that were formative throughout your life.
Some people get to thinking about this and then turn away from the idea because they don’t want these writings to exist in a vacuum. In fact, now that we live in the digital age you can share your thoughts in writing and publish them yourself on a blog.
Blogging is a great way to spend some of your spare time during your retirement years. You can take any approach you would like to with it, and sharing your reminiscences is just one possibility.
You could choose to offer your opinions on the events of the day or simply create a blog that is devoted to a particular hobby or passion of yours such as gardening, cooking, golf, boating, or traveling.
It can be a lot of fun to maintain your own blog and add to it on an ongoing basis. And, many people find the thought of their writings being available into perpetuity on the Internet to be a very satisfying one.
Whether you would prefer to write about the present, the past or a combination of both, recording your thoughts for your family and friends to read at their leisure is a good way to enhance your legacy.
