Well here we are in 2012 already. I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year. I had a fabulous break. It feels like a lot longer than 10 days ago since I posted something here. I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few days catching up on projects and ideas that I’ve been putting off doing or starting as I simply haven’t had the time over the last few months, and I think that this has really been a catalyst in coming to an important decision about the future of Palm Sounds.
This blog has been around for just over 5 and a half years now and especially in the last 12 months it has required more and more time and effort just to stay on top of everything that’s happening in the mobile music world. It now takes up almost, if not all my spare time, and this isn’t really a sustainable position.
As a result I’ve decided to stop writing Palm Sounds from today for the foreseeable future.
The mobile music world is at a point where Palm Sounds has hopefully served a useful purpose in promoting apps and developers to a growing community of users, and I get the feeling that we have moved from a very niche group to something almost approaching the mainstream. When Palm Sounds started there were no other blogs that dealt with mobile music, whereas now there are quite a few mobile specific blogs and sites which have sprung up in the last year or so, and a significant number of mainstream sites are featuring mobile music on a regular basis, so I don’t think that Palm Sounds going silent will leave a gap.
Thanks for all the help and support you have given to Palm Sounds over the years. I wish you all the best for the future. I hope you’ll stay in touch.
