Changes For Swain’s Musings

October 06, 2009 By: Aaron Category: Blogging Community

For a little over two years, I’ve been bringing all of you readers post after post of thoughts on Southern Gospel music from my perspective as a 16 (almost 17) year-old. God has really blessed my endeavors, giving me a wide readership and opening so many doors for me and this site. It has been a real joy watching God cultivate my efforts.

For those two-plus years, I’ve been going it solo in my blogging. Recently, however, an opportunity has come along that I am very excited about. I would like to introduce you all to the new co-author of Swain’s Musings: Jeremy Bell!

Jeremy hails from Lynchburg, VA, a neighboring city to my hometown of Bedford. For the past couple of years, we have worked together in VA Southern Gospel, an organization that works to bring Southern Gospel music to the younger generation. Jeremy has run his own blog under that same name for a time, focusing on Southern Gospel in VA, as well as on the national scene. Often, however, we tended to overlap on many things, resulting in either one of us not being able to post to our blogs because of the overlap.

To remedy this issue, our blogs are merging into one. We both decided that we should keep the Swain’s Musings name, because it would be easier than creating a new identity and essentially starting from scratch. Jeremy and I will do our separate posting on here, but we will also collaborate on things such as CD reviews from time to time. Our first joint review, Tribute Quartet’s For This Time, will be up soon.

Head on over to Jeremy’s old blog to see his previous work, and be sure to welcome him to the writing team here at Swain’s Musings!
