Given what Troll went through this November, I assume that it will skip a month. Which is more than understandable.

I have to start a new journal anyway. And this one will be music related, I promise.

I'm thinking of how to make mine better. I'd really like to do something less half-assed with my jorunal, but I'm just not sure what I could do that I would feel really motivated about putting good work into.

I haven't figured out whether I want to do a top 25 for each year (I'm only listening to 1959 now), something on obscure psychedelia, or to get goofy and do a worst ever album review using my rapier wit naturally . Whatever I do, I'll probably start it in January.

Top 25 for each year is the best resource for other users in my opinion. That gives you a chance fill out your knowledge if you haven’t read something. I’ve spent a lot of time on goofle’s. Not just the loads of stuff I hadn’t heard but revisiting the stuff I have. You have good taste so if I was unaware of something on your lists I’d make sure to correct that.

Trolls do you write up and do me solid this time. I’m going for journal of the year!

No. I'm holding off till the end of December to do the last update for this year, as I was already a week into this month before I would have got a chance to do November's. Makes more sense anyway.

Unless you're featured in some section, everyone gets the same coverage, a line or two, sometimes only a few words. I'm not here to promote anyone's journal, just to point people in your direction. That's all I can do, that's all I ever will do, otherwise this thread would be accused of bias and favouritism, and more importantly, would take much more work than it does at the moment.

I’m not asking for favoritism. I simply asking that you be honest. My journal is the hottest thing going. If music banter was a woman, lamp lighter would be the vagina.

I think it's more like MB is the bar and lamp lighter is the only chick in there but she seems kinda cool at least.

So, if I were to happen to read some Lamp Lighter, I'd only need a shot of penicillin?

But you are. You're quite clearly and unashamedly saying "My journal is the best! Feature it you ****!" And I won't. I don't do that. But there are other reasons. I actually don't think your journal is the best. I can't follow it. What's the theme, the idea? You seem to jump all over the place with it, and I can't make head or tail of it. Some of your entries are one line, or a video, some are treatises on 1928 Russia or something. It's not in any way consistent, and I'm sorry, but I think there are much better journals out there.

Even if I didn't think this, though, I still wouldn't give it more coverage than others because that would not be fair, and anyway as I keep saying, that's not the purpose of this thread, which is essentially "Hey! Look what's going on in the journals section!" It's like a newsletter, or a "What's On" advertisement. In the latter, nobody tells you why, say, the Strolling Players of Munich's production of Hamlet is so great, they just tell you it's on, and where, and let you make your own mind up. There are no editorials here, and unless, as I say, I pick your (or someone else's) journal to feature in one of my sections it will get the same coverage as anyone else. Others have complained about this, but that's how I run this. If that's not good enough for you then I'm sorry, but I'm not your personal PR Department. If your journal can't stand on its own without promotion, well, I hardly need tell you what that means, do I?
