end of an era..?
blowupdoll has being going almost 10 years - and to be honest it was the first of its kind- there were no other music blogs dedicated to (mainly) 60s french pop. other like-minded blogs have come and gone (some brilliant, some not so much) but i've stuck around! personally, i think i was, and am the best of its kind. but i'm finding it increasingly challenging to regularly post music that i haven't already posted before. i don't want to feel like i'm constantly repeating myself.
i dont want to give this up but i also don't want to feel pressured into posting just anything. so i've taken the decision to slow down a bit - if i feel a burning urge to post a song then i will but i can't keep trying to post something every few days. if i find a video i'll share that too but again, only when the urge hits me or when something is new to me or if i know you'll get a kick out of it.
the best way to keep up to date with me is to follow this blog via blogger. i am on twitter, but to be honest i hardly ever tweet. or just check back every now and then.
but please stay in touch - i feel like i have made so many friends through blowupdoll - who have kept me motivated and have shared music, pictures, asked for and offered help - so please don't stop keeping in touch (you can always email me or post a comment) i will still be around - just less frequently.
i'm stone in love with you
