Haulix Weekly Update #98: “And I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.”

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. 

Additionally, we have begun planning a series of online learning sessions to help introduce clients, as well as members of the press, to the new version of Haulix. Signups for these courses will begin in early September.


The biggest piece of news we have this week on the blog front is our recent collaboration with SonicBids. A lot of people have told us our blog reminds them of the one SonicBids has, so our two companies decided to partner and share content in order to better provide our readers with a more well-rounded view of life in the modern music industry. You’ll see some of their posts on our site moving forward, and you’ll likely spot some of our old content on theirs. 

We’ve also been messing around with podcast stuff, but we’ll have more on that next week.
