At my current pace, I will be done posting all the albums that I think need to be posted in about four months. These would be the albums that I feel need to be compiled with all the extra tracks and remixes, and also the albums that I do like. I know that there are plenty of albums out there I could still post, but either I don't like them, or they don't have any additional b-sides or remixes, or all of the additional material has already been released with the albums already.
I could post all the albums that I still like, but don't have the B sides or additional material, or the material has already all been released. But then, there would be no point in remaking covers for them which is what I like to do the most with these posts. Without the new covers, and the commentary, there really is no point and the blog becomes just like every other blog out there.
I have thought about changing the genre of the blog to something like jazz or hard rock or surf music or oldies, but I think I would lose the good part of my audience by doing that.
That being said, I do have some questions.
How many of you would be apt to leave if I changed the genre of the blog?
Would it still be interesting or entertaining, if I simply made new covers for existing albums?
Do any of you have any ideas of what would make interesting subjects for the blog?
I know that there are number of you out there who would like me to do other albums by artists that I am either not familiar with, or simply don't like. Should I continue posting albums even by groups or artists that I really don't like? What is the point of that? If I don't like some of the music, then how can I comment on it or expect anyone else to like it?
mind you, we still have a lot of great material to get to. I still have a lot of exciting posts left and I am thrilled to continue this work. It's just that at the pace I'm going, it will all be short-lived.
These are just a few of the thoughts I've had it running in my mind the last couple of weeks. I really look forward to any advice that you can give me...
