Closing of the Blog…

First, I would like to thank everyone for their support throughout the years. But after nearly nine years of running my site, in all its incarnations, I will be shutting it down. This won’t take place until next February, 2020, when the yearly fees are due for the website. With changing priorities, and limited spare time, I just wouldn’t be able to give the amount of time the site requires and deserves. I’ll probably keep the Facebook page open. But that will probably be it. Again, thank you all!

  1. I have thoroughly enjoyed your website. It has been an invaluable source as I enjoy visiting the temples, and do so almost every weekend. I haven’t done so yet, but I’ll be ordering your books. I don’t know of anyone who has put together such thorough and concise information about Korean temples than you. I’ve learned so much from you site. A great big thank you!!! Shelley

    • Thank you. The major reason I started the site was to help others. I found there was very little in English out there. So I’m glad you enjoyed the site. Again, thank you!

  2. Dale, we have enjoyed your blog and have explored several temples based on your recommendation. You made our stay in Korea more rich. Thank you. Faith and Bruce

  3. Dale, thanks so much for sharing your delight in Korean temples and your expertise in Korea’s ancient Buddhist tradition. I’m so glad to have found your site and will miss it. Best wishes to you and your family.

  4. Nine Years! Wow. Even writing Korean Gardens took less time than that. I think you must have run out of temples and hermitages to visit after so many years.Thanks for your consistent and persistent efforts to put this aspect of Korean culture ‘on the map’.

    • You’re very welcome. There are still quite a few temples I want to see; unfortunately, just not as much time to share them with others. And I haven’t forgotten to send you your picture. I hope to do it tonight.

  5. Thanks for your hard work creating this blog over the years. I always saw it on Koreabridge and did not realize you have written two books on temples. Do they preserve most of the information from your blog? I’ll order them.

    • Hello Adam,

      Thanks. I’m glad to hear that you found the blog helpful. I loved producing the blog for others. And yes, the information found on the blog can be found in the books.
