Starting this separate blog seemed like a good idea at the time. It was January 2014 and I was writing a lot about the art of biography on my original blog, nathanhobby.wordpress.com. It was quite specialised and I thought that (a) it might bore readers who came for other things and (b) if I started a new blog it might help me connect to other biographers and readers of biographies.
As it turns out, I don’t have time to maintain two blogs and most of the readers of this blog would probably enjoy or at least tolerate the things I write on my other blog. So the blogs have merged, and I’ve exported everything on this blog to my new address, https://nathanhobby.com. My two blogs, “The Annotations of Nathan Hobby” and “A Biographer in Perth”, have become one: “Nathan Hobby, a biographer in Perth: The life of Katharine Susannah Prichard, the art of biography, and other things.”
Thank you all for reading and commenting on this blog! I look forward to continuing the conversation with you over at the new address. If you haven’t already, please do follow me there through WordPress or by email or however else you like to do it. It won’t be much different, just a little more frequent, if anything. And for the moment, this blog can stay just as it is, like an abandoned house.
