The new blog

Well, after a bit of fiddling around with designs and ideas and this and that, the new blog is, at last, up and running. Its focus is a little different than this one, and I hope to keep this one going as well, as I continue to marvel at all the wonderful music that I discover, pretty well literally every day.

But the new blog is a bit more about music on the edge - and, in fact, that's what I would have called it had the name no already been taken. So, instead, take a look at

The resurrection of the blog

It has been about fifty squillion years since I last posted here, and it's been kind of nice to know that I'm not the only one who has been missing my blogging. So, it seems like it might be time to find the time to get things going again.

With both time and money more limited than I would like them to be, it's probably not going to be realistic to comment on an album a day in the way I did before, so I thought maybe a blog reborn might be able to be updated a couple of times a week, and maybe with a slightly different focus - albums, of course, but also discussions about music more generally: styles, trends, ideas, the things that make music work for us, the different ways music speaks to us, the different things it means to us, the different ways we discover it and connect to it.

It'd be great if I could get a few more people contributing to the blog, too ... not just by responding to my posts, but through contributing their own stuff as well. I'm not sure quite how to do that, but I'll have a bit of a think and a look around. Maybe a new site might be a good idea - perhaps through wordpress rather than blogspot.

Anyway, keep an eye on this space, and I'll get things up and running again soon!!
