Haulix Weekly Update #138: “Dear Mr. President, there are too many states nowadays.”

Hello, everyone! We hope this update finds you staying cool as the summer temperatures begin to roll in. It is currently 83 degree in Minneapolis as we write this post, which for midwesterners like ourselves feels like the surface of the sun. Thankfully, there are a number of crazy good album releases arriving in stores today, and we’re going to try and keep our minds off the heat by enjoying those works. If you need a recommendation, check this out:

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.

Development updates:

What if I were to tell you this is the last or second to last Weekly Update post before the new version of Haulix arrives? I’m not saying that is absolutely true, but I am also not saying it’s a lie. I’m actually not allowed to tell you when the site will be live just yet, but know within 14 days our world is going to change in a big way. More news will come on Monday….

Blog updates:

Now that the new site is basically complete (shhh, you didn’t read that here) we have been recently become able to focus on our blog a bit more. There was a steady stream of content throughout the week, and a lot of it focused on how to improve one’s own email game. You may think email is simple, and it is for the most part, but actually making smart business moves through email can be fairly complicated for the inexperienced. If you missed anything as of late, especially our podcasts, please head over to our archive and catch up ASAP.

That’s all we have for this week. Check back Sunday for an all-new music industry job board.
