Yes, my poor, neglected, once popular tea blog, I'm closing you down for good.
It's not you, it's me.
I've found another love - not to replace you with, but one that I have more passion for, more desire to spend time with, at least for now. I've failed to give you what you need, and our relationship is suffering for it. Tea will be a constant, continuing presence in my life, but no longer a focus.
Dear, gentle readers, I beg your forgiveness for leaving you like this. I'll be deleting my @teaontap twitter account as well, because three is really just too much. If you'd like to keep in touch, my main twitter account is @VarietyPages, or friend me on facebook. Tea isn't a prominent topic on either though, I'm afraid.
I am pursuing a career as a romance novelist, and in the ensuing months/years, my life is going to be pretty hyper-focused on that as I work at both my day job and getting published at night. It's not glamorous or even remotely easy and who knows what, if anything will come of it, but it's what I've decided I want, and thus, the trimming of this blog for more writing-related pursuits.
The only question now, is should I leave the blog here, with an archive of review links for reference? Or do I delete the whole thing, as if it never existed?
If you have an opinion, now's the time to voice it. I'll take suggestions until Dec. 28th, then either post review link lists or take the whole site down on Dec. 31st. I'll still be following all of the tea blogs I currently follow no matter what, and hopefully even have more time to leave comments.
Thank you for your company over the past few years. It's been a wonderful experience.
