The State of the Blog, 3 August 2010

You will have noticed, perhaps, that there was no State of the Blog post on Saturday last week.

This was perhaps less than intentional, yet I will admit that there was a bit of relief in not writing one, and instead simply posting some release news.

Tonight's SotB post will likely be a brief one, but I did want to draw your attention to the right hand side of the site, where I have a series of links to other pages on my blog. It's right there, under where the poll was, and above the Google Search box. See it now? Well, there's a new page there.

As polls complete, I'll be archiving the results on a new page, creatively entitled "Past Poll Archives." Pretty witty, huh? I thought so too, actually. Seriously now, any polls I run from here on out will have their results posted there, with the newest poll posted at the top. This way it will be easy to see what we've voted on in the past, and have a record of those results.

For those too busy to hit the page to see the final results of the first poll, I'll copy and paste them below just for you. But this will be the last time. Next time, click the link, OK?


Who was your favourite band at NEARfest 2010:

Steve Hackett 20 (47%)
The Enid 19 (45%)
Iona 11 (26%)
Three Friends 10 (23%)
Forgas Band Phenomenon 8 (19%)
Riverside 7 (16%)
Eddie Jobson/U-Z Project 7 (16%)
Astra 6 (14%)
Moraine 5 (11%)
The Pineapple Thief 1 (2%)

As always, I want to thank you for stopping by, for reading, for voting, for taking part. There's a lot of very cool stuff coming up, including some more insightful interviews, some great albums and reviews, and hopefully a contest or two in the not so distant future. Keep your eyes peeled, and keep visiting!

Thanks, and have a proggy night!
