Moving on ...

After much deliberation, I've decided to bring Mithril Wisdom to a close.

I started this blog back in 2010 while I was a Masters student as a means of breaking up the monotony of studying.

I had a backlog of fantasy books that I'd put off reading, so I decided the best way to get through them would be to publish reviews of them online.

Fast forward five years, and I've met some fantastic bloggers, publishers and authors who have supported me and allowed me to review their work.

Thank you all for a great five years.

But this decision has been cooking for about a year or so. At the beginning I was very much a book blogger, but there was so much more I wanted to talk about.

The problem there was that I'd spread myself too thin, and I couldn't properly connect to any particular audience. I'd become too generalised for the book crowd, and too niche for the general geek crowd.

After trying to hone my focus, re-organise my priorities and go through a number of big changes, I realised the best option was to shut up shop and move on.

So what happens now?

I've not stopped blogging altogether (it'd take a lot to stop that!).

Instead, I've set up a new place called Geeksin Wales. This gives me a narrower focus but also means I can engage with more people on a number of geeky topics.

So if Welsh geekery is your thing, then pop along and give it a follow. Otherwise, it's been an honour serving you all.
