The reason for the change is mostly because of the amount of writing I’ve been doing for other publications. I’ve been writing for the Georgia Straight, Exclaim! and BeatRoute (where I’m also a contributing editor), plus publishing the odd thing in The Tyee and Discorder; needless to say, my schedule has been pretty hectic. And it tends to get a little redundant, publishing on the same things over and over again. If I’ve covered an album or concert for another paper, it’s not much fun to write a second review.
Changing this to a MP3 blog will give me the opportunity to relate back to my other writing without repeating myself. Also, the narrower scope should mean I’ll be able to update more frequently, so I can hopefully get back to the daily(ish) updates.
Let the great experiment begin!
