Do you remember the “old days” (just before the massive popularity of Myspace) when you actually visited your favorite website or blog every morning, and not via a social media link prompted by a social post from one of the major platforms? Instead, you had bookmarked your favorite website or blog on your phone and/or computer and you just remembered to check it out daily and see what was new.
Well, although we most certainly owe many, many of our friends, followers, supporters and fans to our use of social media over the last seven or so years, with the current state of algorithm-based content gating and censorship, and after thinking long and hard about it, I have decided to reinvest and have more faith in our own online real-estate by pulling our new content links from social media going forward (with the exception of YouTube and SoundCloud for your listening convenience).
Basically, this means that we are asking you to bookmark our blog on your computer and phone home screen or tablet (if you haven’t already) and make it a point to visit us regularly in order to continue enjoying the love and hard work that goes into bringing you brand new songs every week.
No, I am not planning on turning our site into some revenue generating ad machine. I truly feel what we do is best, most sincere and effective in its current pure state and that will not change – no ads here.
With respect to the extremely important, recent news updates that you usually see in the right column on our blog, previously being feed through our social media page, I will continue to reserve that area for important current news updates. However, instead of a social media link, there will be a new section that links directly to the relevant news media page.
Taking a more exclusive approach going forward is by no means meant to leave anyone out, but rather a means of further empowering and strengthening our blog in order to ensure that you can turn to #MTSTPBlog for inspiration and good music at times when you need it most.
