Okay, this is it (legendary Michael Jackson quote, aw yeah!), I have thought about this for a long time, but I have decided to stop “blogging” on gethypedonthis.com (Please, continue reading!). The last 2 years have come with a lot of ups and downs in time and interest for blogging about music. I keep saying to myself “it’s time to get active again!” but I always fail to maintain a good post ratio which started to leave a mark on the general website, making it less interesting for people to regulalry visit (in the end, that was my goal).
So where the biggest issue is the lack of time there is also social media and multiple new platforms bringing music to the audience in such a more fast and more effective way compared to a music blog which is only being updated maximum once an evening. We want to discover and hear new music, but we lately prefer to see it in the platforms we are already using. At least, that’s how I feel it and that’s how I, myself, want to do it as well. I was losing so much time looking for bloggable stuff that I started missing out on the whole music experience itself (I was looking for music to blog about it, not to listen and enjoy it and that’s was what was bothering me).
Is this really THE end? NO! I’m still enjoying music, I will still check many feeds and platforms to keep myself up to date, I will keep enjoying Dj’ing, even in my own bedroom, but I’m not going to maintain a blog about it any more. I will keep posting stuff on my facebook page and on my twitter feed, but for the website the approach will not be a blog any more, but something completely different. I’m still brainstorming on some aspects, but the general idea is there and I’m hoping to launch this at the start of Spring this year. The main idea will be to integrate many different feeds and platforms in to one page. So I can push content from my platforms (soundcloud,youtube,facebook, etc etc) directly to the website (more on that soon).
Hope you all enjoyed my blog for the last 5 years and hope you will all keep following me on the social networks. Big thanks to all people that have supported me and the blog (got some real cool experiences out of this blog).
Also a big thanks to Jack Herror and EJECT! who blogged with me during the active years/months!
Don’t believe the hype, but this ending is the start of something new!
