Archives For the joint review

I was talking to my buddy Conner the other day about “blogging”. We both agreed that blogging has changed. It used to be, at least for us, about community AND about getting things off your chest. Then came Facebook and Twitter. Two sites that hold a dear place in my heart and I will be the first to tell people to jump on board, but they changed things.

Twitter and facebook seemed to have killed blogging for the guys like us. All the community is on those sites now. If you are a “big” blogger then you still have community on your blog, but for guys like us with only a few hundred followers and tiny lurkers (i don’t mean they are midgets) we don’t.

If you are not a lurker and are a blogger what are your thoughts on blogging these days? Has it changed for you?

So now what? Well first off I have always used my blog as a place to rattle off the great things God is doing in my life so I will try to get better at being as frequent as I used to be because I miss writing. Where else to go? I have no flippin clue. Ha ha..

All I can say is this blog has been up for almost 4 years and almost 300k visits and I still love it.

You’ve been used to seeing The Joint multi-angle reviews for a while now on this blog.  The Joint is a music review with a difference.  It’s four guys involved in worship ministry but with different (sometimes very different) tastes in music.  This can often make for interesting reviews, in fact when we do agree on something, you can bet it’s an album you need to own.

The Joint is now too big for our wee blogs, so we have launched a brand-new standalone website.  I’ll still link to reviews from here, but you should bookmark http://www.thejointreview.com, or add to your RSS/news reader, etc. to keep up with all the latest reviews and giveaways.

We also have a new feature where we will be posting videos of us playing songs that can work with just a guitar to show you that you can play it!
