Centricity Update 1/13

Posted January 13, 2011 by in Uncategorized

Hello blog world. We are trying something a little new in this new year on the Centricity blog. A while back we asked you, our faithful and good-looking readers, what you wanted to see on our blog. One of the items you suggested is more artist news. Well, we listened. I know, I was surprised too. Starting today and every week (hopefully) we will post a Centricity update letting you know what is going on the world of our artists.

I would love to hear what you think about the info we are giving here. Is it what you like or a waste of time? Let me know.
