Audio Overflow: A Goodbye

Well readers, it's been a long time coming, but here we are.

Today is March 31, 2011 and it has been exactly 5 years since I wrote my first review for Audio Overflow.  I thought it was only appropriate to officially close the blog on this date as well.

Over the last 5 years, I've written over 800 articles, reviews, news stories, and lists in hopes of getting my opinions out there to anyone who may actually care what I have to say.  Along the way, I've made contacts with some really great people, listened to some fantastic up and coming artists, and strengthened my love for music!

Unfortunately, my life has changed in such a way that I can no longer devote any significant amount of time to this blog.  People grow up, get real jobs, real responsibilities, and have to make sacrifices in order to move on.  Ending Audio Overflow is in no way a huge sacrifice.  Over the course of the last 5 years, I've yet to make a single dime from my rantings, but this blog was never about that.  I always sought to bring you, the reader, quality reviews and unique articles that you wouldn't find anywhere else on the internet.  Though my readership remained small over the years, I know I undoubtedly accomplished this goal.

It is sad for me to leave this blog behind because it was such a major part of who I was for so long.  I will miss writing reviews, posting my year-end lists, and promoting bands that really need to be heard.  Rest assured that what has been written will stay here for as long as the internet gods deem it worthy.  All content will remain for your viewing pleasure, should you ever feel like lighting a candle and reminiscing on what once was.

Audio Overflow was not a unique blog, by any means.  But it was my blog.  And I will miss it.

Goodbye everybody.  May the good music continue to find you.

Audio Overflow
