If you caught the last post I put up, you'll know my plans, and this is the first stage. Getting back to it.
So, from the outset of getting back to it, I want to make a few points, getting in before the trolls do -
- I do this (blogging and making mixes) for my own enjoyment.
- I don't consider myself a great DJ, I just happen to do it as a means to make mixes of tracks I like.
- I'm not interested in chasing numbers. I don't pester people to listen to the mixes I make, I don't pester people to like my page on Facebook, I'm not terribly bothered if people follow me online, or not. If people like the same music I do, and like the mixes I put up, then great, that's a bonus. If you don't like them, that's fine too - there are plenty people out there for you to enjoy.
- Trolls pay note - trolling comments and messages will just be ignored completely.
The future of the blog is going to be more aimed at being just a holding page for my mixes and somewhere for me to post up the tracklists, which I will try to link back to legal purchase points as often as possible.
I am still more than happy for people to send me tracks at firstname.lastname@example.org - the caveat being that you are happy for them to be used in my mixes. I'm not planning on promoting tracks through blog posts, and any mixes I post that aren't my own will be one's I have enjoyed.
So, that's the basis of me carrying on with the blog, for the moment anyway. If you want to keep up with what is going on here then you can keep up to date on the new Facebook page or of course via Twitter and Soundcloud. The links are all on the left of the page.
I have a couple of things in the pipeline and I'll update the blog as and when I can. In the meantime, here is the latest mix I put together.
