I would like to ask you to accept my sincerest apology for not showing up in May as I promised. As some of you may know, I have been extremely busy with my graduation, and some research opportunities came up afterwards which have kept me occupied and will do so for quite some time into the future.
I am also happy to tell you that I have been admitted into the Master of Philosophy in General Linguistics & Comparative Philology programme at the University of Oxford. It has been my dream to become a linguist, and after careful consideration I have decided that I will be embarking on this new endeavour with much anticipation (but also anxiety) this September.
Sadly, this also means that I would not be able to update this website, at least for quite a while. This is not a permanent goodbye – my aspiration to become an academic publisher is still alive, but I hope you could understand that with the current (and future) workload of my study and research, it would be rather difficult for me to maintain this website while keeping up its quality. I did consider cutting down on the frequency of posting or looking for a writing partner, but the quality of content has always been my No.1 priority and I would not like to risk it.
Publishing Insights has been one of the most amazing experience of my life. It started out as a “personal” project, but quite unexpectedly I found myself in a global community of readers/writers/publishers, an active network that brought us together to have a heated debate and then become friends (not in the sense of “followers”). I could not be more grateful for having the chance to know many bloggers on WordPress and beyond, many of whom have contributed to very sophisticated discussion on my posts and have kept their dreams and goals alive in spite of the frequent (and cruel) struggle of balancing between business and art. You are the reason why Publishing Insights has been a rewarding experience for me.
Thank you, my dear readers, and I wish you every success in your own endeavours in the publishing world.
