After nine and a half years, 1,150 posts, and 5,220,000 site views, Mysterious Heartland is finally closing its doors. Well, you’ll still be able to see the archives at (its original name). It’s no secret posting has been sparse over the past couple of years. As I moved out of the Midwest, I wanted to focus on more generalized travel writing and photography. People seemed to just come to Mysterious Heartland for the top 10 lists anyway, and there’s only so many of those you can write. You can still follow my adventures at my personal website and the new Memento Mori photo blog:

Thank you for your readership and patronage over the years. I hope you enjoyed reading this website as much as I (once) did in creating it.

Your humble author,

Michael Kleen
