In my absence, Yuki has done a commendable job keeping fans posted about the latest I’ve news, and I thank her for that. She’s been patient, forgiving, a joy to work with and the only part that I genuinely miss about writing for this blog. The thing is, though, no matter how lovely a person my co-writer might be, the main reason I started this blog (and kept it up for most of 3 years) is gone. I’ve fallen out of love with I’ve, and no new release seems ready to re-ignite that long-extinguished spark. It’s been a fun ride, but all good things have to come to an end.
While Yuki can definitely handle the news portion of this blog, she requested for me to open auditions for new writers who can handle the reviewing aspect of things for her. The two-writer dynamic has worked well for this blog (which is why I’ve done it with two different writers) in the past, and I hope the new writing lineup will continue the tradition.
If you are interested in becoming a new writer, you can contact Yuki by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably with some writing samples (perhaps a review of an album I never got around to writing about?) included.
Thank you all for your support, and good luck to whoever takes my place as the blog’s new reviewer.
(Yuki’s edit note: I’ll put this post on sticky for a while. Lack of applicants here. Got some potential writers applying. Thanks! Please wait as I consider who to be the next-gen I’ve Sound Blog writer.)
