Good afternoon, everyone! If you’re reading this the day it goes live, then please take a few moments to pat yourself on the back for reaching the end of yet another work week. If you’re reading this on any other day, go ahead and take the rest of the day off. We think you’ve earned it.
Every Friday we take a break from usually scheduled programming of informative and entertaining articles on life in the music industry to let you in on what we’re working on behind-the-scenes at Haulix. We love this blog, and it makes us so happy to know many of you visit frequently, but at the end of the day providing the most secure and easy-to-use digital distribution system in the world is still our focus. If you would like to learn more about our efforts to protect the future of the music business, click here.
This week was the first since the majority of the industry returned from SXSW, and to be perfectly honest it flew by in the blink of an eye. We had so many projects, phone calls, meetings, and related to-dos this week that we barely had the time to think about how many hours were left until the weekend arrived. Now it’s Friday and the only thing on our minds is whether or not we have done enough to warrant a little weekend fun. Funny how life works like that sometimes, am I right?
The biggest announcement from the dev side of things this week was the recent update to our email system. If you will recall from our post on Monday, every time a client sends new promotional invitations they will be able to view the recipient list for that invitation via their Dashboard. Simply click the linked number of recipients and a pop-up opens with a list of who the recipients were.
Here is an example:
This update is just one of many we have planned for the months ahead, but it’s the only one we are able to discuss at this time.
As for the blog, you might be interested to know we worked on more than 20 different articles this week. Between new ‘Advice’ columns, transcriptions on interviews, and conducting interviews for new pieces, there was rarely a dull moment in the editor’s office all week long.
We also ran A LOT of content. 9 articles since last Friday to be exact. If there is anything you missed, or if you simply want to revisit something from earlier in the week, use the list of links below to see what’s new:

That pretty much wraps up our work week coverage, but we will return tomorrow afternoon with the continuation of our ‘Journalism Tips’ mini-series on grammatical errors every writer needs to learn to avoid.
If this is your last time stopping by this week, please have a safe and wild weekend. We don’t expect you to send us stories, but we expect you to create memories worthy of being shared. For everyone else, we’ll see you tomorrow.
