State of the Site

I know that not many of you will read this, or even care if you do read it but I want to say this and draw a line in the sand. As of today I’m stopping work on any new reviews or articles going forward at least for the short term. For the last few months I feel like I have put a lot of unnecessary pressure on myself to finish work and in all honesty my heart is just not in it anymore. I don’t want to put out anything that’s half arsed or not my best that I can do and I feel like I’ve been doing reviews because I had to rather than wanting to do them. I don’t think should be the case, also considering that I don’t get paid to do this, it doesn’t seem all that worth it. I do like doing my music reviews and I there is so much great music being released but I just can’t cover everything I want to nor can I keep on top of my everyday life at the same time.

I want to state though that I’m not giving up nor is this the end in its entirety. I just need some time away from doing this and I need to reassess how I need to approach my reviews going forward. I wanted to change the format of the site for a long time as well and I’ve wanted to start projects that have never come to fruition, somehow time has just got away from me. For the last 6 years, in some form or another, I have been writing and it’s honestly one of my favourite things to do. Yet, I think it’s time to draw a line in the sand and re-evaluate what I want this site to be. So long for now and when I figure out what the hell I’m doing I’ll be back with a vengeance.

See you at the next gig.
