So I went searching for an image to mark the end of this blog leading to the above pic from an 8tracks playlist linked below. I used the search term “death of a playlist” leading to a number of dramatic images and inspiring this post’s title.
Yeah, so another experiment comes to a close. There has been some interest but not at a level to sustain the daily attention this simple project needs.
It doesn’t take a lot of time but I don’t have a lot of time and there are many other projects that could use that daily bit of attention like Crowdfunding For Musicians. For example, I could do a better job of occasional news roundups and site list updates which do seem useful to folks.
I’d already begun a process of reducing daily distractions and focusing on core projects. It was fun paying attention to playlists from a business angle and to see how things were developing but, in many ways, it’s all taking a fairly obvious path.
If you’re interested in what I’m up to besides this blog, you can find occasional updates at Flux Research, where I post about my business writing, DanceLand, which is building to a relaunch, and Crowdfunding For Musicians.
