Sometime around early 2003, a group of friends came together and decided to take their personal interest and love of great music – and launch a blog. Just for fun. We called it Just Good Music. There were four of us at the core of the site.
The blog ebbed and flowed, covering new music, old music, opinion, technology of music etc. After a while we left the company we were all working at – we crossed (if not changed) continents for our home base, married, divorced had babies – but the site lived on. Until last year.
The site had fallen to me to manage and run – and in turn I got busy. Very busy. So busy that I missed there months of alerts, reminders and emails from my ISP reminding me that I needed to renew my hosting package. One day I was chatting to a friend about something musically interesting – and I thought – I am sure we had that on Just Good Music – I went there – and ….. G O N E !
Eleven years of love – wiped out. My fault.
Fast forward – and I was recounting this sad story to the aforementioned Bob – who suggested that there would surely be a record of it in the way back machine. This week – I finally got around to looking and there it was. As the banner says – saved 55 times over the 11 years of it’s existence.
Just Good Music Lives here – and from time to time I will dive into that archive and pull up a post to repurpose it here. I have the first one already to go. Written by ‘JP – the other one’, as we used to describe. Have to say it was always one of my most favorite posts on the blog – so happy to have found it … Click Here To Read “What The Hell Happened”.
