I Understand I've Been Gone Awhile.

Hello, everyone. I may only be around for a short while, but, while i am, i want to express a couple things to you all.

Apparently, my brother's death has devastated the site by interstitial means. I couldn't control his loss nor can i the way i feel about it. It's the kind of thing that really catches you off guard and take you away  from everything else. The website without me did well for a while, then, it seems like all was lost. It's been almost a month since a post has been made, the outlining and designs are out of date, none of the coming soon albums have been posted, nor has the list been updated, and the site rank dropped down from 2,650,978 to 3,410,093. Obviously, this happened since I last came on the check the site, which was 10 days ago. The top 30 list of music blogs held our place at #12 for five months before recently dropping to #16. Now, we're at the very bottom, and that is something i will not stand for.

I and everyone else here have put in too much hard work for this site to fail; and, believe me, I'm not talking to the viewers: it's not their fault the quality of this site has plummeted. I'm talking to our staff. I just recently saw an email from Marcie stating she would "make me proud". Quite frankly, I'm very disappointed in what i've seen returning. I expected at least fifteen posts. Instead, i saw zero. There are eleven employees here, five of which are at least 50% active. If the five of you can commit to just five posts a week, that would be 25 total a week, 100 a month. If i come back, i'll fill in the void: Me and OJ can post 15-20 posts a day as long as we have the content, which shouldn't be a problem: or at least i hope not.

Yesterday, i got another disappointing email from OJ stating that he'd the funds to buy new material all along, but he'd chosen to blow half of them on the App Store. I understand he needs to take some of his money to pleasure himself, but we came to an understanding that we would devote at least 20% of our funds to the site. In fifteen days, the money for the domain is due. I don't have a ton of money, but I always make time to help the blog. I expect the same from my workers.

Please don't think I'm being strict with you, because I am not. I only wan you all to know that this website means a lot to me, and, if it means a lot to you, then you all better start acting like it. If you all aren't interested in working for the blog anymore, then i respect that decision and you can choose to remove yourself or go inactive, but don't be on the blog, say you're going to do "wonders" for it and then totally leave it in the dirt. I don't appreciate it and neither do the viewers. Please respect my wishes.

Be back soon,

Diana

  1. Hello Diana, this is Mars.

    It's good to see that you're getting better.

    I haven't posted recently because my friend's grandmother died two Tuesdays ago. His grandma was kind of like a grandma to me, even though I had a grandma of my own whom I still love dearly even after her death.

    I understand how it feels now to suffer such of a loss, especially provided the fact that it was so recent. I need time for myself to rehab from that and IK what you are going through sincerely because now I have lost both of my grandmas. RIP :(

    Diana, I am so sorry that the site has not been to your liking. I'll email OJ and the others soon and maybe we can make it better.

    Your Friend Marcie

  2. Diana,

    Hello my name is Alex I don't visit your site often because I did not know it existed but I know now, I am not a web designer, and wouldn't know the first thing about posting things, I am 16 and in high school, I read your post and I know how hard death can be, my dad committed suicide in December of 2011, I don't know my mom because she left me with my dad when I was 3 weeks old, so now I live with my grandma, I was the one who fould my dad dead so let me assure you that I understand death more that I wish to, I haven't yet allowed myself to greive so I cannot tell you how long that takes. I feel I must be strong for my grandmother, and I have to be tough and continue to get my A's in school because I want my dad to be proud of me. But I struggle and god knows its hard.

    I don't know why I just told you all of that, I will just say that I understand your pain, I think your site is soooooo cool and I will attempt to visit again soon, please reach out if there is anything I can do to assist. Like I said I don't know much about any of this stuff but maybe you just need a friend to talk to or something kinda like me...

    Your new friend

    Alex Eamon DiNozzo Jr
