I won't delete it - the archive will still be there. I will also continue to moderate comments.
Instead, I will start posting news items to my Twitter account, which will take much less time and can be done on a rather more ad hoc basis. @egyptologynews, for anyone interested.
If you still wish for a blog-based news service there are lots of them out there. When I started Egyptology News it was the only such service, but lots of other people are now doing a similar job. Just do a Google search and see which one you like the best. EEF produce a weekly round-up, too.
My eternal thanks and a huge hug to Kat Newkirk, who has been copying me on news emails for years and years. Kat, please keep me on your distribution list - I will be using it for Twitter instead.
My sincere thanks to all of you who have followed the blog over the years too - it has been fun.
