It’s official: we suck

At least, based on current area blog launches, we seem to suck at providing information about arts and culture and music. Two new sites have launched in the last week to fill the void that we’ve attempted to fill with Timetable since our inception – bham.fm is a new music blog that will cover local as well as not so local info while bhamsandwich.com will be covering the arts and culture scene. What about Timetable, or the new (but not yet fully functioning like we want it to) calendar, destinations (FYI – submit events here)?

They’re alive, not kicking, but alive – and they’d love your help to get back to where they’d like to be. We know you love Saturdays for not having to do anything, but we’d love it if you’re interested in submitting to Birmingham’s hub (any part of it) if you’d come on out to o’kafé’s (check out their new website) in Pepper Place this Saturday morning (November 15) at 10 a.m. We’ll be done in plenty of time to watch whatever game you want to.

Whitney, we are worried though, for several reasons. We'll just see how things go - but we're pulling for you over here!

Matt... always good to see you, though we haven't met in person in months. We're overdue for some coffee.

Thank you Andre for linking to us in your post. You're always on the up and up, so the last thing I worry about is your success :) You always find a way. MELINDA: Hi! This is Whitney from bham.fm. As a regular reader I'm sure you remember that I DID in fact work as a contributor for the Terminal (I hope my bio is still up on the Terminal "About Us" page). In all reality, I still am. I'm glad to be associated with this site in general and nothing makes me prouder than getting recognized as "Whitney from the Terminal".

I've always assumed that y'all created Timetable because you think al.com's entertainment coverage sucks. (I'm teasing -- I like The Terminal.)

While we'd hope that folks would consider just that Melinda, we still feel that we've been successful in getting more voices out there - even if it's not necessarily writing for The Hub. Hopefully we'll have some new contributors soon.

Welcome to the club! Hope things work out great for you - and that maybe every once in a while you may just consider dropping one of those perfectly sized posts our way - :-) We do need more contributors (though we've got a couple of tricks up our sleeves yet to be used)

Y'all are great. I only wish I'd found out about the Hub earlier.

It is a shame that the creators of the new sites didn't decide to work with The Terminal especially since this site already has an audience.
