Original Content Survey Results

Last week we conducted a survey on whether AMN should include original content, such as reviews, interviews, profiles, opinion pieces, and/or other content.

The results of the survey were overwhelmingly in favor of doing so.

I’m encouraged by this feedback, and would like to starting including original content on a trial basis. However, I’m still trying to get my head around exactly how to do so. I’d like to provide high-quality writing, but in a such a way that the limited time that I can dedicate to this site does not cause an unnecessary bottleneck.

Quite a few responders indicated that they would like to contribute original content. If you were one of these people, please write me at mike@avantmusicnews.com. In your email, indicate what type of original content you’re interested in providing, and a writing sample if applicable. We can take it from there. This is a great opportunity for those of you who would like a creative outlet and an opportunity to be published on a site that is regularly read by about 1000 people who are into the avant / creative / weird music scenes.

Also, if you like doing album reviews, I get quite a few promo releases. I barely have the time to listen to these releases, much less write about them. If you’re interested in album reviews, I may be able to share these promos with you.

In any case, I’d like to thank everyone for the feedback. Much appreciation.
