Music Channel Launch

This article will take approx 1 minute to read.

I’m about 3 days late on jumping on the music channel launch bandwagon at b5media. I’ve been late because we’ve been working behind the scenes on the launch and there has been a lot to do. In fact, we’ve had about two months since we first hired Mike Laba, the music channel editor and it has been head down, plow ahead since.

The process for this has been pretty intensive since there’s several parts of a new blog launch that the tech team is responsible for. We setup the domain, deploy our standard build of WordPress, have our designer create logos, setup the standard b5 theme, make sure everything is in FeedBurner properly, make sure channel blogrolls are functioning as they should, etc.

There’s a lot to do and I’ve personally been going crazy getting this thing out the door. For most of the past 10 days, I haven’t gotten to bed before 3am.

But the music channel is now here and doing awesome. These bloggers rock, plain and simple, and I’m loving the content – specifically loving Jam Band News and The Good Musician.

This is the first major expansion that we’ve made into a new vertical since the Business Channel was launched last year. Pretty intense. Thanks for the traffic!
