It's been a little lax regarding updates recently on here and especially on our Twitter so I wanted to take a moment to explain both that and something about one of the benefits of working in the music industry.
For the most part this time of year, the music business shuts down. Artists stop touring, records are rarely released, radio is playing year end countdowns and Christmas music, and most offices close. In general, this doesn't just mean for Christmas and New Year's either, it actually means for a few weeks. (Again, this is a generality and doesn't apply to all offices or positions, some offices remain open and some offices only require certain people to come in- so don't get your hopes up just yet). Still, generally speaking, if you work in music, you are probably on vacation right now until the New Year.
Sadly, this also means there is very little going on and very little news and stories to share with you all on Twitter. So, I hope you're not feeling forgotten, it's just that there really isn't much to post because everyone is probably on a tropical island somewhere (I wish I were, it's too cold!) or just relaxing at home.
We will of course keep blogs coming fairly regularly and will resume our normal schedule (such as quizzes on Monday, news on Wednesday, etc) here in the new year and we have some good stories and ideas lined up for you. I imagine some of you will be starting new internships then too so in the mean time follow our new year's countdown for tips of what not to do on the job to be sure you impress (rather than annoy) your new boss. Also, feel free to get in touch if you need specific advice, all of our emails are on the about page.
Happy Holidays everyone and, as always, thanks for reading!
