… To announce that I will no longer be posting on this blog. It’s certainly the end of an era for me, as you’ve all followed me on the journey throughout my three years at University, graduation, and into the real world.
As I wrote on an earlier blog post, I quit my job a few months ago. Since then, or perhaps slightly before then, I’ve been unsure as to what I want to do with my life. I hate feeling as if I’m ‘wasting time’ by doing something I don’t enjoy, and teaching has been a profession that has taken my interest as of late. So in the next couple of weeks, I will be flying from London to China, to be a primary school English teacher over there.
It has been a struggle for the past few months trying to find the time to get on here and create postings with the amount of training, packing, organising etc. I was doing in preparation for this trip! I’ll be really busy out there anyway and don’t particularly want to spend a lot of time on the internet, so rather than letting my blog dwindle with activity, I am just going to stop posting altogether.
I’m going to leave the blog up though, so it won’t be deleted- but as this blog was my creation, I don’t want to pass on the ‘admin duties’ to anyone else!
When I started this blog, I truly had no idea it would ascend into such popularity. The heights that this blog has reached has been a delight; I was just bored one afternoon at University and wanted to post about my passion; the classical world. I was going through my I-Love-Socrates phase too and remember one of my first postings being about him. The amount of likes, reblogs, and followers this blog has attained has been more than I could’ve ever imagined and I’d like to THANK YOU ALL so much for ALL your support, I truly didn’t realise how much interest there still was in the Classical world. What a wonderful thing!
Best of luck to you all for the future, and who knows, perhaps I’ll be back another time in the future!
P.S: Here are the final statistics:
Total followers: 2,381
Total postings: 1,244
Goodbye, and thank-you for the past few years… lots of love, A x
