Seven Years And Counting . . .

Happy 7th Anniversary!

I'm a little late on this . . .

But this month marks the seven-year anniversary of Beats and Rants' existence on the web.

On July 13, I decided to switch over to Typepad after previously writing on a few blogging platforms, including Believe or not, I got kicked off for uploading audio (MP3s) on my blog. Yes young'uns, there was a time when bloggers were actually forbidden to upload MP3s onto their blogs. Back in the days, if you posted MP3s on your blog you were considered an outlaw blogger who was giving the middle finger to the tall Israelis music industry.

Boy, those were the days.

I've still got a lot of work to do with this blog. My personal life prevents me from getting busy with redesigning it. I know this blog needs an uplift.

But I would like to thank my loyal readers for continuing to visit my blog. Even though you guys don't comment on my posts, I still see you. (I have Google Analytics on this blog!)

Props to all of the new and veteran rap bloggers (particularly, Nah Right) who are making a $1 million lot of noise with this blogging shit. I'll catch up with y'all, soon.

Stay with me. I'm not going anywhere.

And, as always . . .
