Thanks to all for the amazing feedback, both in the comments and offline, to the last post. It's left Macro Man overwhelmed and Mrs. Macro shaking her head in disgust.
Your very kind gestures of appreciation have kick-started a couple of ideas that Macro Man has had knocking around in the back of his head for some time. He hopes that you'll like them.
Those of you who just can't get enough of your author's frequent bemusement and bad poetry, rejoice! The task of relocating himself and his family to the USA is sufficiently daunting that he feels unable to cope without a forum for public venting. He will therefore be keeping a Diary of an Impatriate, though be warned: no market or financial topics will be addressed in any way, shape, or form. Macro Man has retired from financial blogging, and he means it.
Secondly, and most importantly, is the idea of giving something back. Macro Man would like to give something back to his adopted homeland, and he hopes that you can help him. He has therefore created a Just Giving page for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.
Over the last three and half years, he has spent hundreds of hours writing hundreds of thousands of words. He hopes that some of them have made you laugh, made you think, and maybe, just maybe, even helped you make a bit of money.
If so, please consider giving a little something back by making a donation to GOSH. You can do so by clicking here, or on the appropriate space on the sidebar (once Macro Man's replacements start posting.) The people at Great Ormond Street do amazing things for sick children; please consider making a small contribution to help them and make life a little better for kids who have more important things to worry about than disappearing financial bloggers.
Thank you all once again.
And now, I really am going...for good.
