The Big City blog began at the start of February, 2008—10 years of writing about music of all kinds!

That has been 10 years of love, and labor, and I can no longer justify the time spent, not just accumulated but current, on something for which I lose money.

I need your help. This Kickstarter project will boost and preserve the platform as it currently is, and ensure it's presence through 2018. And things are directly proportional: the greater the success of this Kickstarter, the longer the lifespan, the better the results.

Finally, thanks for reading all these years. Please help with the labor of my love.

Risks and challenges

The only possible risk is productivity, or lack of it. But I average a few thousand words a week, so the track record is impeccable.
