This is the end

I know, you've seen it coming.

After really struggling to think of anything to write about, I figured I'd announce this is the end of this blog and I'm also stepping away from my blogging on Anglotopia. There are a lot of reasons, first of all that my "New English Adventures" just aren't that new anymore. I've well and truly settled into life here.

Also blogging is a very self-centered activity, and I don't mean that in a derogatory way or to offend or belittle other bloggers. Blogging really comes from a place of relating your personal place in the world- life from the perspective on oneself- and lately I haven't been seeing my life in this way. My life is so much more about the people around me and their stories which aren't mine to tell. Not to say that I've lost a sense of myself or that my life is defined by the people around me, but between my job, family life, volunteering and friendships my life has become a web of important relationships that are hard to put into writing, or interesting writing at least.

This isn't to say I'll never blog again, but for now thats where I'm at and I'm quite certain on this particular blog, its the end of "Anglophile's Digest" for good.

Thanks for reading and please keep in touch!
