New Beginnings For A New Year


The start of 2016 marks a new beginning for 9B. Staff has changed quite a bit and we’ve pared to down to a much smaller crew. There wasn’t any drama in this happening; people grow, change, and move on and I wish everyone who’s ever been a part of 9 Bullets all the best. Over the next few days we’ll be welcoming a couple new staff members and announcing some changes to the way we do things. While we’ll have a smaller staff I think we’ll be able to focus more on doing what we do best. As always the focus will remain music because without that this isn’t 9 Bullets. I’m excited about the changes and I think you may be as well.

One of the major changes is actually really simple. We now accept articles from anyone. All you have to do is sign up for an account, login, and submit an article. At that point one of our editors will look over the piece and if it’s well written and on topic then we’ll get it scheduled. This is your chance to get eyes and ears on stuff that might not be getting the recognition it deserves. I can’t promise that we’ll publish everything but we’ll at least give everything a real shot. If you aren’t familiar with our take on how we write about things then check out the About page and go from there. I look forward to seeing your submissions.

All that said, this is my site and I haven’t written anything in months. I was afraid I’d lost my passion for this and seriously considered passing the baton or, in the absence of anyone to hand things to, letting the site slip in to the archives of the internet. After a lot of soul searching I realize that I’m not done. I still love the music and even more so the people involved in the music. I can’t walk away nor do I want to. So, if you’re reading this, thanks for sticking around while we got things figured out! Now, go nurse your hangover, there’s a good chance I’m doing the same. But stay tuned, we’ve got big things coming…

  2. Long time reader but have never commented (apologies). With this post welcoming a new turn in 2016, wanted to leave a little echo in return and thank you for all of the efforts, passion and new music. I’ll keep reading, listening and carrying the same passion. Thanks for all you do.

    1. It’ll be interesting. I have to maintain a balance but I think I’ve got it sorted. I’m really excited for this year. There’s a lot of stuff I’m looking forward to for sure.

  3. Happy new years! I thought it was done, and figured I’d check one last time just to see if maybe someone had updated it…looking forward to seeing some new articles & maybe trying to contribute…

    1. It’s not perfect yet but the user submission form is now active. I’m not the world’s greatest CSS genius so I’ll be hammering on the look this evening. Glad to have you still around!
