Official Hiatus


I believe it has been clear for some time now that this blog has become a shadow of its original self and strayed from its initial purpose. The Sino / Mandarin Music Spotlight posts were really a last ditch attempt at keeping this blog going. I don’t intend to give up those posts or this blog definitely. I have so many plans for this blog – the weapons posts, reviews, nerding out about my favourite couples, music posts… However, I don’t have the time to consistently post here at the moment and I don’t see this changing in the foreseeable future.

I will still be posting on my ChinaSorrows blog and you can find wǔxiá / xianxiá content there.

Thank you for following this blog. I hope you’ve enjoyed this time as much as I have.

My best regards,
