Okay, folks, time for a modulation to a key we can all sing in better. You may have noticed a few changes here at Classical Musings, and even at the Post-Gazette.com in general. In sum, we are continuing to improve the Web site, and, yes, catching up to the rest of the ’net in some cases.
The big news here is that our blogs are finally "real" blogs, instead of online columns. Over the past 16 months or so that Classical Musings has been up and running, I have appreciated your comments e-mailed to me personally (there’s a smart group of music-buffs out there), but starting today, you will be able to post comments directly on my blog! The best part about this is that you can add to my posts or even my P-G articles/reviews that I have referenced in the blog, expanding and making my work "smarter," as they say in the online biz. To register for commenting, click the "Join" link in the top right corner of this page.
Feel free to include links, photos, whatever to make your point or even to mention something that didn’t get (enough) coverage. But to that latter end, the P-G community server has more robust tools for getting your own news out to our community. I will be the moderator for my blog posts, and I reserve the right to delete a post, but I don’t think I will do so very often.
Let’s have an inclusive conversation that is fun and respectful and leads us all to new knowledge about music.
One note -- since we are moving our blogs from one framework to another, to read older (even this week's blogs) you must click on this link or on a bar (eventually) on the left:
