Post #1 - What Was And What Will Be

Published on March 08 2013.

If you observantly followed the activities here on 50kmusic.com over the last two months, you surely will have noticed certain changes. I've rebuilt and reframed 50K MUSIC MAG over the last few weeks. I haven't finished my work yet. But I hope that you like what you see so far.

On 1st March 2013 the MAG turned four. Yes, back in March 2009 I decided to publish the first MAG (in German at that time). Since that day there were periods of euphoria when I felt the real great support of artists, fans and readers. But there were also times I was on the point to pack it all in. Now crowdfunding has turned into a hype. More and more artists discover the pros of the hands-on model and the direct-to-fan approach.

The new slogan of 50K MUSIC MAG - "Spreading The Spirit Of Indie Music" - will be the motivation for everything I do in the next few months.

In January, when I started to refloat 50kmusic.com after a crash in December last year, I had a clear conception of how 50K MUSIC MAG will look like and what strategy I will pursue. And over the last two months it all became even clearer. I have a precise picture now of how the MAG will develop over the next year. All my ideas and thoughts convinced me that only a magazine with high quality standards will sufficiently serve the new motto of 50K MUSIC MAG: "Spreading The Spirit Of Indie Music".

My plan is to develop the MAG into the leading magazine for crowdfunded Indie music, both online and offline. I know this requires huge efforts. I also know that I'll need all the support I can get. And I know I can rely on the true community of music lovers.

That's all for the moment folks. I'll keep you in the loop.
