This is my first post since May 2011. I wrote that particular article in the Library and Achieves of Canada when I was in Ottawa completing research for my PhD. Returning home to Sydney in June, I took a job teaching at the University of Sydney while editing and refining the last few chapters of my thesis. Between the two, I did not have much time to write. On top of those academic commitments, I also bought my first house in September and got married in October. With so many demands on my time, it was simply not possible to keep writing.
Firstly, I’d like to apologise for the lack of communication. I should have formally explained and closed the site but I kept thinking I would steal a few hours and post a new article. Secondly, I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to read my articles over the past couple of years. Writing is a beautiful art and it is a great joy that I can do it for a living. I truly value the feedback and comments I receive.
Lastly, I would like to announce that articles will recommence. I will aim to return to regular postings with at least one or two per month. I would love to hear any suggestions you may have for topics or anything else. I am thinking I will refine the style here a bit to shorter, punchier articles.
Thanks again for your patience. It is with great pleasure that I inform you benjaminthomasjones.com is once again operational. If you ever feel like sharing a link on your facebook page that would be greatly appreciated.
