It is said that there are some things that money can't buy, and wisdom would certainly be one of these things. When you are planning your estate your primary concern is going to involve our valuables. However, you may be able to pass on your values as well by maintaining a blog during your retirement years.
A lot of people have an interest in writing their memoirs once they have the time to devote to the project. This is a great way to share formative experiences with people that you care about. There is no substitute for learning by experience and some of these stories may be very instructive to the people that you will be leaving behind.
But what about publishing? And what if you don't finish the book prior to your passing?
There is a very simple solution these days in the form of self publication on your own blog. You can actually start your own blog without having any particular technical expertise by using very user-friendly platforms that are offered on sites such as WordPress.org.
When you have your own blog you can publish your work incrementally as you see fit so your family and friends can always have something new to read if you are updating it regularly. If you work on your blog throughout your retirement years you will have assembled a significant body of work by the time you pass away.
While it will forevermore exist in cyberspace, most blog sites provide a publication service, so you can print off a book of your blog. Now family members and even future generations of your family can draw from your experiences into perpetuity. There is no time like the present, so get started!
