Thank You and See You Soon

If you've been following my post on Facebook, you'll know that I'm going to stop writing on this blog. I've also announced that I'll be deleting the Facebook page and Instagram account associated with this blog. This blog will remain where it is - I won't be deleting it. I just won't be updating it any longer.

Initially, I wanted to make this like a farewell post where I would thank everyone for supporting me for the past 11 years, but I can't. I feel like this shouldn't sound like a goodbye message - simply because it isn't. I'm not going anywhere. Just moving to a different home.

This blog will remain a big part of who I am and what I've done in my 15 years of career as a primary school teacher. It has become like an old backyard garage - where I've tinkered with ideas and experimented with projects. It has also brought me to lots of amazing, inspiring people whom I might have not known otherwise. It has opened up doors, led to opportunities, created networks. People who have been with me would have seen how I've grown and matured throughout the years (hopefully). 

I'll still be creating teaching materials and will still be sharing them with my friends. For now, at least. If you're still interested, you can subscribe to my Telegram channel Bite-Sized English, and my YouTube channel of the same name. I won't be as prolific as I used to, though...and the materials I make won't be as gorgeous and original and up-to-date and relevant to the current Malaysian curriculum as the ones made by amazing super teachers like Teacher Dilla, Teacher Ash, Teacher Fiera, Mr Suheil, Mr Nazmi aka Little Chuckee - just to name a few (please, please, please check them out if you haven't already). But yeah, as long as I'm still creating something, why not just put them somewhere accessible. Some people might find them useful. And I might want to go back to them, too, someday. Who knows. 

I'll also be writing on my new blog, It'll be slightly different from this one, because it won't be 100% teaching-related or education-related. It'll act more like a personal blog where I aim to write more for myself rather than for an audience. I can anticipate lots of posts on education still, since it's something that's very important to me and close to my heart. But in addition to that, I might write about other stuffs that are not related to education, too. Like about books that I read, movies that I watch, music that I make, prayers that I pray. And a bunch of other (boring) stuffs. So, if you feel like visiting - come on over! I'll be happy to have you in my new home.

I also plan to be fully committed to Going Digital ELT, a teacher community blog project which I truly love and am passionate about. Do check out the website (and also the FacebookInstagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn) if you like to know more. 

Whether this is farewell or not - I haven't fully decided. Perhaps I never will. But thanking you is still something that I know I should do. It has been too long overdue.

So, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all that you've done for me. Words can never adequately express how much I'm indebted to you. I won't be where I am today if it's not because of you. May God bless you abundantly for all the kindness you've shown me. 

And I like to humbly apologise, too, if I've hurt you in any way, through the things that I've written on this blog, or on my Facebook page, or on my Instagram account. 

Hope to see you in my other channels. 

Love, ~ccj
