It is with a heavy heart that I'm reaching out to let you know that we've decided to shut down Literarium. As you may know, we've been working on this platform on and off for the past 10 years, and it's been an amazing journey and learning experience to build a product and to see it adopted by so many people.
However, as the personal lives of both Tom and I have gotten busier, we both no longer have the free time to devote to further development of Literarium. To keep the product running comes at a cost, and whilst we've aimed to monetise the product so it can support itself and future development, it's difficult to see how this can be done with a full-time job and little spare time.
I understand that this news might come as a surprise and a disappointment to you, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of our journey. Your support and encouragement have meant the world to us.
We will be shutting down all services associated with Literarium on the 20th of Dec 2023, including the website and database. Please make sure that you download and save any data that you would like to keep, as we won't be able to retrieve it once the product is shut down.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll do our best to address any queries that you may have.
Thanks again for being a part of Literarium. We're sad to see it go, but we're grateful for the journey and the memories.
