In an act of consolidation that has been many years overdue, I'll now be doing all of my primary blogging through my tumblr account, which as of now has just been renamed Pretty Goes with Pretty—so bookmark the new url and/or update your RSS feeds if you still read blogs that way.
I've had an affinity for this site for a long time, always aspiring to be more prolific here, less prolific elsewhere, etc. But the truth is that it's quite difficult to stay prolific on one site and be on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook—all of which are beguiling enough that I don't want to abandon any of them for different reasons. I'm tired of being a jack of all platforms, master of none. So, if a format is to be abandoned, I realize it's this one.
That's not to say Pretty Goes with Pretty is dead. It's just at a new url. The tone and content will change to match the platform—there will be reblogs, there will be fewer downloadable mp3s, there will be no more weekly soundtracks nor monthly rundowns. That said, there will be more content overall, and more varied. There will still be lots of music to listen to, and lots of words to read. There will be art. There will be television and movies, maybe. There will be whatever I want there to be.
Hopefully you already follow me there or on Twitter. Judging by my daily stats, the vast majority of visitors here are just hunting for mp3s anyway—and that's not who I've ever wanted to cater to. It is my hope that renewed efforts at Tumblr and Twitter will result in what I most want out of writing about music—conversation. Join me.
