Haulix Weekly Update #146: “Why was I programmed to feel pain?”

Hello, everyone. Thank you for finding a little time in your busy schedules to browse our blog and read up on the latest industry tips and tricks. We have been working hard to plan the remainder of our year, as well as what we will accomplish in 2017. It’s crazy to think 2016 is nearly over, right? No matter what comes in the weeks ahead we will remember this year as one riddled with great music, including this new release we cannot shake:

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 news:

This fall is going to be a relatively chill time for our development team. While there is a lot of work still to be done on the forthcoming platform overhaul we have scheduled for release in mid-2017 we are doing our best to not rush our work. If we have learned anything from the events of the last two months it is that pushing development to grind out products before they have been properly refined is a move that begs for complications. There are no shortcuts in the world of business, and there are certainly no shortcuts when it comes to ensuring the security and ease of access our platform is able to provide. Instead of forcing strict deadlines we are currently allowing our devs to rest and reconfigure their plan of attack for the new site. Once we have a plan in place we will move forward, but right now we are happy just exploring the options for growth you have made possible through your continued support.

Blog news:

As many of you probably noticed, our podcast was absent this week. We actually had two different guests scheduled, but both interviews had to be delayed due to circumstances beyond our control. We expect Inside Music to return to its regular day (Wednesday) in the coming week, and we are currently planning to release two episodes back-to-back in the near future in order to get back on track for the release of episode #100 this November.

In other blog news, our team has been churning out a number of articles as of late. The growing need to incorporate video into music blogs, the challenges of getting on the radar of music influencers, and more important topics were covered in the last week alone. 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. Tune in next week for a new job board, a very long podcast, and much more.
