The Future of the Live Music Blog

It should come as no surprise that I'm busier than ever, so what does the future hold for this blog? I'm asking for your opinions.

I promised you readers a question about "the future" this week, so here it is.

Now that I'm working with GoTonight, and now that I'm trying to advance my music career further by taking on more shows, I've had less and less time to work on this blog. This should come as no surprise to my more avid readers, as the Band Spotlights are no longer monthly, and discussion topics are few-and-far between. I still fill in as much info as I can for the actual live music list, but even that is starting to become a bit of a time-eating redundancy, considering that I now fill in almost all of the same info on GoTonight.com.

So my question is this: What do I do? I know several readers depend on this blog for its live music list, but as I mentioned, you can now find this same info on GoTonight thanks to my becoming West Pasco County's Community Music Activist. I know some readers sorely miss my discussion topics and insights about the music community and ways to improve it, but my time has been extremely limited lately.

The way I see it, I basically have 3 choices:
1) Stop writing this blog altogether, and refer people to GoTonight for live music info.
2) Continue writing this blog, but only for its live music list.
3) Continue writing this blog, but only to talk about pertinent topics related to the local music scene or to spotlight local bands, and refer people to GoTonight for live music info.

What would you readers like to see happen? I'd like to get as many opinions as possible on this, as I'm treating this as kind of an unscientific poll, so please feel free to comment.

Here's your live music list for the week of February 15th-21st. If you have any additions or corrections that should be made, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at tim@gotonight.com. As always, any help with making this live music list better is very much appreciated. Also be sure to visit GoTonight.com for even more live music info.

Have a great weekend, and stay safe out there!
