Allow me to take stock of my audience. As the years go by, I feel that MusicTAP is becoming an obsolete service to its readers. Of course, it may just be how I feel. I like finding the occasional great band for everyone to enjoy, and certainly being the one that brings you an exciting piece of news. But the reality exists that I don’t know my full audience. Much of the music I get notified these days with concern new bands that – I think – are of no concern to much of TAP’s readers. Worse, it requires a window of time that could be better served in other things.
Of course, if these things that I normally post about of of interest, I definitely like posting them. However, there are many other services other there that report on the same thing, many much more quickly than I. I begin to wonder if MusicTAP is effective.
My question then, is just how much value is served by the postings that I do? I’ve been at this for nearly fifteen years. I just can’t help but note the changes that have occurred over the decade, and the questions that we have asked over the years. Of course, it’s always exciting to stumble on to the upcoming remix of a popular album, but those are far and few between.
Perhaps TAP is now beyond its years, overstaying its welcome, overstating its value and worthiness.
Let me know.
