A (not so) Triumphant Return

ok so its been awhile since i've posted on any regular basis or posted at all really. I made many pleas for some participation by my readers in the form of comments which came to nought and left me feeling like this was all a waste of time. So heres another chance for you fuckers. Should i start posting again? If I get any sort of real reaction/response to this then i'll consider it. Otherwise keep getting your music from the websites that post endless amounts of music they've never heard, dont care about and cant take two minutes to write about. And on top of that have the audacity to ask you to donate money to them so they can make a profit off the artists.

Agreed, I appreciate your take on new music and I would be stoked to see more reviews! However, definitely understand the struggle with reader participation / motivation. As you can see I'm posting anonymously and only writing 3 sentences...

keep posting! find a ton of good metal on here, and your reviews are actually informative, unlike other blogs that don't post reviews at all, or just write dumb stuff like "this rules". you may not realize, but a critical opinion is very rare.

Please keep posting! I subscribe to many metal blogs but I find yours unique in terms of quality recommendations.

ya gotta remember, for every one of us that writes, there are 20 or more who read the blog that can't be bothered...

Shit is disappearing by the minute. Three of my regular vists were gone yesterday...

KEEP IT UP.
It IS appreciated.

I always appreciate the effort put into blogs like yours. I may not post much in the way of responses, but that's primarily due to a busy life and tiring work. However I feel that blogs like this one are rare in that yes, the message was spread about quality bands that deserve attention and offered much in the way of information and opinion that I value. I wish the heyday of the blogosphere was still upon us, but alas finding the real gems and knowing what's going on in these scenes can be a daunting task. I still go over old sites reading through the backlog so as to not forget bands that I still need to check out, as well as enjoying the writing that accompanies the posts.

tl;dr Your blog is cool, you'll always have a reader in me, I'd love to see you make a comeback.

keep on posting please!

let's keep the underground / independant blogging alive! (i write myself a blog called Blasting days).

it's cool when people comment, but nevermind if they don't, just do it for yourself, if and when it please you to do so..

VALIS said...

yer absolutely right, i should do it for myself and to promote bands i like...i just wanna know that people are actually reading or visiting...anyway the (few) people have spoken and i'm def gonna start posting again

blasting D said...
