Blog Update: Where We Go From Here

You have not updated. No I have not, and I apologize for that. I have not forgotten about it, but I have been putting it off for a while now. There are two main reasons why:

1. The blog is too specific. How is that a problem? Its not an inherent one. There are plenty of blogs that strive on a specific subject. However, I am someone who tends to shift my interests around quite often. This can lead me to picking up projects, then dropping them a few weeks later (like I did with this blog).

2. I have not been training. Its hard to write about perfect pitch when you are not training for it and don't have it already. Getting myself to ear train every day is not an easy task. I have mentioned in the past that I have never completed my training, and have made multiple attempts at it. My last attempt has been no exception.

Will I shut down the blog? No, I do want to continue updating the blog like I was doing back in March and April, but I am not going to be writing specifically about perfect pitch. Instead, I will broadening the blog to a general music blog. Music has been one thing that has remained consistent with me over the years. So, I figured it would be much better to use this blog as a place to share the things that I learn as time goes on.

I will continue to talk about perfect pitch, when I have something on my mind. But keeping a more general focus with the blog will help prevent long gaps between updates. Over the past few months, this blog has come to mind many times, but it always followed with the thought: "I need to start ear training first". This would cause me to push it aside until 'later'.

Will I re-brand? In the future, I do plan to re-brand this blog. However, I have just finished putting my personal website together, so the thought of purchasing another domain and getting it set up gives me a pit in my stomach. Its not hard to do with Blogger, but it still means paying $12 for a domain so that I can leave the current one to collect dust.

Again, I apologize for the lack of updates these past months. But with a broader subject in mind, hopefully I can keep regular updates.

See you soon,
