Starting again… Again!

15 Jan

Here we are again then. Another New(ish) Year and another post about getting the site going again with regular posts and the like.

Time really does fly and it seems like it was only a few short weeks ago that we were writing a post, very much like this one, at the start of 2017 setting out our commitment to writing. The super-busy day job we mentioned back then has managed to get even busier and looking back, we realise we were being a bit optimistic about our ability to devote time to the site (the last time we wrote anything was October! That’s how bad we got).

However, we do still want to devote time to it, to get back into it and to feel that buzz of writing and sharing incredible new music again. We’re just going to be a bit more realistic about what we can and can’t do.

We’re not going to try and write every day, not yet, but will try and write each week. We’re also going to be a bit more realistic about the length and quality of our posts as we ease back in. Long story short, our initial posts may be a bit shorter and not quite as well crafted as usual.

We are committing to keeping the Alphabet going. Our intention to do the full 26 bands in a year fell a little short in 2017 (we managed four) but we’re not giving up. The slate has been wiped clean once more and the Class of 2018 is ready to go.

So, there will be Alphabet Bands, there will be other posts about great new music and, in the coming week, a couple of posts about our favourite bits (albums and moment) of 2017. Because why not right? We’re only halfway into January; it’s still close enough to 2017 to be relevant. Ahem.

Last year we talked about wanting to focus more on long-form writing and getting some in-depth interviews recorded (yes, recorded) with artists we have long admired. That’s still the idea, though we are realistic enough to acknowledge that we might take some time to get back into the swing of things before that can happen.

So, that’s it. Another commitment to write and keep you all entertained. Much like a hangover promise to never drink again, this time, we mean it.

    Why don’t you invite guest reviews from time to time?

      Thanks for the comment. It’s a good idea, but one that pushes up against our irrational desire to keep this just for ourselves.

      We have had guest posts from artists in the past, Tracks of my Teens was very popular and is something we want to explore doing more of in the future. It’s only fair we get our house in order and get writing ourselves first though we feel.
