    Guys, I thought I’d let you know that I’m going to be unsubscribing from the blog – I know one person doesn’t matter but I figured I’d mention why! It feels like it’s become a weird sort of tabloid website – the articles used to be informative and helpful but recently seems like they’ve gone way down in quality. It seems to be 50% reposting from other websites, 40% odd, unhelpful articles (the mermaid post particularly confused me) and 10% quality content – and I’m not willing to stay and read for that 10%. You had a really great niche with the career articles, and I enjoyed that there was a random mix thrown in there too every so often, but you seem to have gone way off brand!
    I’ll check back every so often to see if things have gone back to how they were before, because I really did like the blog then!
