Hello everyone! ^__^ Sorry for the lack of updates these past few months. 2014 has been a crazy year for me so far and I haven't had the energy to work on the site. I think everything is coming together now (hopefully!) and I'd really like to get back to work. I really appreciate you guys keeping the site going by continuously adding new albums and artists. I feel so grateful other people care about this site. :')

I've been thinking this over for a while, and I'm about 90% sure I want to add a blog to MusicTea. I'm not completely sure what I'd post just yet; I only want to do this if it will truly be useful. Right now I'm thinking I'd like to post about new artists or albums I find, and eventually do video interviews with artists. :) :) Is there anything you guys would like to see on the blog? I really want to make MusicTea a useful resource for people who love music. Also, if any of you are interested in contributing to the blog (or know someone who would be) please let me know!

~~~
A few other things: A lot of people have been telling me lately I should make a section for local bands to promote their music or shows. I'm not really sure how to go about doing this, and I don't want to look like we're trying to be like ReverbNation or something, so I'm pretty hesitant how to progress in this area. If any of you guys have any suggestions I'd love to hear them. ^__^

Secondly, I'm planning on changing servers later this month, so the site might be down for a day or two. I'll post a notice in advance before this happens. Lastly, I'm probably going to put ads on here to cover server costs, but I think ads are annoying so it'll just be temporary and I'll keep them to a minimum.

Originally I was going to wait to reply to this topic until I had something more solid to contribute, but then I decided it would be best to offer my opinion now just in case the window of opportunity closes sooner than I expect and I still don't have anything better to add. I might drop in again if I happen to think of something more helpful than what I'm about to give, but basically, I am all for a blog (and the ads, too, by the way) and while I'm not sure what exactly I could be of help with, I'd also be interested in contributing to it in some way.

There's really no "window of opportunity" here; it's all an ongoing process that's continuously being updated and refined. Honestly just that you cared enough to reply means a lot.

I'm not completely sure myself what I could write that would be useful. Mainly I have a lot of friends in bands, and I'll probably just start out writing about them to help them get more exposure, then see where the blog ends up going. Yesterday I went over my to-do lists and thought about where the site's at currently, and there's still a LOT left to be done. I have a lot of basic functionality code still to write and tons of artists I want to add. I'm thinking it won't be until mid/late May before I get started on the blog.

If you randomly get any ideas (before or after the blog is up) just post them here or on my shoutbox. :) All of your suggestions have really meant a lot. I don't think you realize the mental/emotional strain of making this site completely by myself. I really do appreciate all your feedback.

Update: There's a lot going on in my life right now. I need to get a 2nd job, and I'm not yet sure how much time/energy I'll have for MusicTea. I likely won't get started on the blog until August at the earliest.

Update: It'll definitely be a few months before I'll get started on an official blog. However, I've decided to start posting new music I find on MusicTea's Facebook and Twitter pages. Please check them out and follow them!
