Haulix Weekly Update #97: “Just because I don’t care doesn’t mean I don’t understand”

Hello, everyone. Thank you for stopping by our blog. Whether it’s your first visit or your hundredth, we’re happy to have your attention. This is our weekly recap post, which runs every Friday, and in it we talk all things Haulix. Before we get there however, we like to share a song that has been on repeat in our offices this week. With the weekend only a few short hours away, this track will help you celebrate your impending freedom like no other. Enjoy:

As I mentioned above, each and every weekend 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.


Work on our impending relaunch continues, but at this point we have no new information to share on the development front. That said, we did complete our first Haulix user guide this week, and we hope to have it available for download beginning in early October. This will be a one-stop guide for press and clients alike that covers all the ins and outs of Haulix. If you have something you want us to include, please don’t hesitate to send us an email.


We are incredibly proud of this week’s content. I guess as the people behind the blog that should always be true, but some weeks we know we didn’t roll out our absolute best work. That’s not to say it isn’t good, but as any creative person will tell you it’s quite rare to feel satisfied with a project. This week, we’re satisfied with what we created. If you missed any of it, use the links below to get caught up before a new week begins:
