Keep (it) Swinging upgraded

 Keep Swinging  = Keep (it) Swinging 
After 6 years this popular blog needed an upgrade with a new url:

Keep (it Swinging upgraded (English) | Keep (it) Swinging vernieuwd (Nederlands)

The Keep (it) Swinging blog will be modernized on the first of June, 2012 ...... with a new layout and a new url:

The (old) Keep Swinging blog was founded Februari 2006 as a place to share my fascination for jazz and jazz-related music and to promote my other music projects (together with co-editor Jørgen Larsen) ( Oscar Alemán - Choro-Music - Flexible Records - Hit of the Week-Durium project).  It started as a daily blog in Dutch and after half a year also published bilingual ( in Dutch and English). Last year it celebrated its 5th anniversary.

Last month 10,000 unique visitors found the Keep Swinging blog ( 30% from the USA - 25% The Netherlands and Belgium and 30% from the rest of Europe). Eighty-five percent of its visitors found the site thanks to search machines, like Google, which means that the Keep Swinging site has found its place as site to promote records and artists. So, in my opinion, the Keep (it) Swinging blog should to be continued.

The site itself is hosted by Blogger and since 2006 it renewed and modernized its services. The Keep Swinging blog needs, after more then six years and 1500 blogs, an upgrade, but, upgrading such a large database would mean that a lot of information could become damaged and lost. So, I decided to create a new Keep (it) Swinging blog with the url: with the same target: Sharing my passion for jazz and jazz-related music and record collecting.
