Hey Dear Readers, Aaron of the KMA here.
As stated before, I’ve been finding other ways to spend some of my time, lately. Other projects have been building, mostly offline.
This lead to some reflection. What are my goals for this site, at this point? We’ve now been doing this for over 10 years… seems like maybe I oughta finally accept it as a permanent thing that sticks, eh?
You’re getting a condensed version here, but believe me when I say I’ve put a lot of thought into how to go forward. I realized that, over these years, I’ve made stabs at doing this or that, but it was bits and pieces. So instead, it’s time for the big kahuna. I’m wrapping up all my blogging goals into one all-encompassing series!
Some Goals I Thought Of (and thoughts to go with):
1 – Review every album I own: Long a goal of mine, and daunting as hell (given everything here). But imagine reaching a point where you’re only covering new things coming in… This would also (eventually, hopefully) cover any albums I still IOU to anyone.
2 – Create/maintain on-going What Owns Me (WOM) list as I go: cool, and also helpful to have an off-site list in case of damage, loss or fire.
3 – One band at a time, multiple albums per post: they say immersion is the best way to learn new things. Any reviews I’ve already done, I’ll link to them. No need to re-do 10 years’ worth of work. But I will still listen to everything again.
4 – Resume Hit It Or Quit it Series: will they stay or will they go? I’m doing a collection cull, so heads-up: I may get ruthless, here.
5 – Resume lower word count posts: honestly, I prefer this. Just say it and get out.
6 – Finish my behind-the-scenes site admin work: yawwwwwn… but it’s necessary.
7 – Make blogging fit into busy life: no schedule, I’ll post when I can.
8 – Have fun: Of course. Give ‘er!
Ready? Me too. It’ll take a long time, but who cares? Now that I’ve given myself a structure, it’s simply one step followed by another.
And what am I calling this ambitiousness?
The All The Everything Series
It’s the series to end all series.
Because the KMA loves you.
Bonus Round Fun Facts: Some of the series I’ve undertaken here at KMA:
KMA Sunday Service, Album series (full artist catalogues or store purchases series), Hit It Or Quit It, IOU series, Drunk Reviews, Ontario Bands, Racy Lacy Anniversary, Beam Me Up Scotty’s, Taranna Was Hot, Greatest Hits Albums, Edenfest, and The Radio. Surely there were others, but you get the idea.
