Full disclosure: this was written on 3rd October as I forgot it was Sampleface’s birthday on 1st October so let’s pretend I had a time machine and went back to that day to write this.
I can’t believe I’ve been running this site for 9 years. As I keep saying, I’m not as prolific as I used to be and many of the previous contributors have gone onto bigger and brighter things (or simply have lives and can’t write as much as they could before—hard relate). But regardless of that, I’m always grateful for their work and everyone who has engaged with the hundreds of posts on the site since Sampleface launched back in 2012.
I don’t normally do this but I wanted to share some stats for the last 12 months:
- Pageviews: 40,159
- Daily average: 109.3
- Top 5 posts:
Not too shabby. So what does the future hold for Sampleface as we reach our 10th year? I have no idea. I’ll always be posting when I feel like it, I’ll still cover awesome music that I find and get sent. If you ever want to write something for the site, don’t hesitate to contact me and we’ll go from there. But I want to thank you all again for your support. Many of my favourite sites have come and gone in the time I’ve been running Sampleface and it means a lot that people still come by every day for about 90 seconds.
Keep facing the music!
