The Wrong Train

There are two (non KR) trains chugging through the KBW community doing roaring business, picking up passengers and cargo. Much as I’d rather be on the infamous Bilaz train, it seems I’ll be punching a ticket on the Unemployment train instead.

It’s back to another facet of life I’d rather not re-visit, as I dust off my CV and get some thick soled black Nike’s ready to hit the infamous Nairobi pavement.

On the upside, sometimes you need a punch in the gut to get started on a new track and this looks like one.

End of the blog?
Just two weeks ago I shared Steve Pavlina’s 10 reasons NOT to get a job!.

Bankelele has been a useful medium over the last 1 1/2 years through which I have learnt so much from interaction and sharing. I must say that what I blog about derives very little from my daily workload as a, sometimes Bank Hangman.

Tarmacking may reduce my contribution to the blog even as as I am trying to generate more revenue out of it from advertising and freelance writing.

I have received various offers on account of this blog in the last year – and if I has said no, I eat humble pie, and ask that you re-submit your earlier offers for discussion.

It is also likely that a new employer may insist on the end of this blog as part of a new contract. I’d urge them to let the blog continue or to roll it over into a new medium of their choice. If not, so be it.
