Haulix Weekly Update #47 – ‘Up there! In the sky! It’s…It’s…A new development!’

I don’t know about you, but I woke this morning with a small spring in my step. The day greeted me with a cool breeze and plenty of sunshine, but something inside me told me the pleasant weather was not the source of my joy. I hopped in the showed and applying shampoo when it hit me: IT IS FRIDAY.

Each and every Friday we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.


The past week has been pretty crazy around headquarters. We continued to promote our latest promotional video, as well as the recently unveiled profile system, but the task that took up the vast majority of our time was a new update we’re just about ready to share. Yes, the rumors no one started are completely true, Haulix has another big update coming in just a matter of days and we cannot wait to share the details with all of you. For now, however, we will simply tease the fact that this update deals with something that lies at the core of everything we do here at Haulix. Without it, our company would likely not have survived as long as it has, and with this latest update we hope to secure our position in the industry for many years still to come.

On the blog end of things, life has been passing us by at 200 miles per minute. I believe we have worked on more than two dozen new features this week, including eleven interviews with various industry professionals. We plan to run all of that content before the end of August, so you know there are a few crazy weeks ahead. Before we get there, however, we should reflect on the 10,000 words published in recent days. Here is a list of everything you may have missed while working away your week:
