#TBT Are Blog Rolls Still A Thing? (Spoiler: Yes)

Of all the trends to come and go in the world of blogging, blog rolls seem to have a good amount of staying power. Perhaps one reason why is because the blogs tend to have staying power. I checked* the links on Adaptistration’s blogroll and all but two were active.

After yesterday’s article pointing out Timothy Judd’s The Listeners’ Club blog, I realized it wasn’t in my own blogroll. I have no doubt there are others that should be included and to that end, there’s a form at the top of the page where you can submit your blog if it isn’t already on the list.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
