My Amazon Drive just put me on notice. They are discontinuing their Drive services in December of next year. That gives me plenty of time to figure something out, but for the moment I don’t know that I want to continue uploading shows to the Drive if they are just going to disappear next year.
This is going to take some serious contemplation.
The thought of having to reupload all the shows on my drive to some other service and repost good links on the blog just sounds exhausting. I could just upload news shows and then reupload old shows whenever I get a request. That is a possibility.
I’m also contemplating the idea of some kind of newsletter or substack. I’ve really enjoyed the times when I’ve shared shows from a particular tour or some other similar theme. I like the idea of a biweekly newsletter in which I could share all the shows from a certain time period or maybe shows from a certain city or venue, etc. I love the idea of doing something like that but also writing an essay about those particular shows.
I also like the idea of doing mix-tapes. I could create the greatest hits from different tours or years, or whatever. Or do mixes of really great songs from different artists. I’ve done a few of those in the past and they were a lot of fun. If I did that I’d probably also share all the shows used to make the mixes.
Or maybe I’ll do something else. Or nothing at all. I really don’t know what is next.
For now, I’m taking a break. I’m gonna need some time to figure out where I want to go from here. This makes an excellent opportunity for you all to start digging through the blog and downloading anything you don’t already have. Whatever comes next I’ll definitely keep you all in the loop and will post about it on the blog.
