Fin

I've been writing this blog for over four years. The truth is, however, that it's been on life support for quite some time. I haven't written anything interesting here for at least eighteen months. Therefore, I've decided to close it.

This doesn't mean the end of my blogging career. Au contraire. For the last month, I've been experimenting with a few test blogs, using different formats and different hosts. My choice is made: the personal, photo-ridden blog is to drift gently into the night, and my energies will be directed to a more topical one.

It wasn't a difficult decision. I'm no longer the college kid that set up this site as a means to vent and stay in touch. Facebook, for all its faults, largely fills those roles now. I doubt if anyone still uses this to follow my life; if you do, I advise you to look me up on Facebook. (I'm not hard to find... just be sure to introduce yourself!)

From now on, I'll be writing regularly at a fine neologism I concocted: Novellogue. I hope to provide interesting links, a little commentary, regular playlists, and the odd personal story. I'm a grad student in politics now, so expect a heavy concentration on the affairs of state. By the way, the course is going fantastically well. I didn't expect to excel at an academic Masters programme after three years out of college, but my grades and feedback to date have surpassed anything I ever managed as an undergrad. I'm really enjoying my work, and I have a rendezvous with the Joint Parliamentary Committee on Electoral Reform in just over a week. Here's hoping its esteemed members pay attention!

Should you wish to continue reading me, look me up at Novellogue dot Wordpress dot Com. I'd love to have your attention and your comments.

Thanks for reading.

Martin
