Lots of things going on. I’m going to have to write some blogs this week, there’s a lot of music stuff happening lately.
For myself, I’m performing for a fundraiser tomorrow night (8/10) at 5:30pm at Skinny’s Lounge in North Hollywood. Tickets are $10.
4923 Lankershim Boulevard, North Hollywood, CA 91601-4444
I’ll be doing an all acoustic set with original songs.
I hope you can make it out if you’re in the area.
I have three more articles coming up for the Examiner, they’re really cool and inspiring, interviews with different kinds of musicians.
I’m also gearing up to perform soon around LA, and I also have some covers that I want to start putting up on YouTube, and I’ll be also posting here on this blog. Too many things to do! It’s hard to find time for it all…
And I should get going with the rest of my day.
I started off this blog as a place to talk about music, write my emotions with music, and then this blog grew into reporting the latest and newest in music. I got to write for the Examiner about music as well. Then I felt a need to keep constant, daily updating music, and it was weird updating all the time, sometimes, yes, there was a lot of music to cover. Sometimes I didn’t have the time to write, sometimes I just didn’t have the heart in it. I didn’t want to talk about music I didn’t like. That would be dishonest.
It’s kind of like the newspapers, they need to come out with stories every day, and some days, there isn’t that much great news to report on.
I have a few more articles coming up for the Examiner, but I’ve been thinking about my life and what I want to do, and I’m finding that constantly keeping up with music trends isn’t time efficient for me. I want to start my own business, plus I’m gearing up to perform again in LA, acoustic venues with my guitar. I find myself not having time for anything and feeling lost and stuck. So, I knew I needed to cut the fat off somewhere in my life. And, it seemed to be the writing…
I won’t be gone forever, but this constant need to update… I’ll just come back and forth when I really do want to geek out about a new song I just heard. It means I won’t really keep my visitor rate going up… but if you do subscribe to my blog, you’ll get updates when I do write so you don’t need to keep checking back and forth if I wrote something new.
I love writing, and I love music, and this was a natural progression and a very fun project… but right now, I need to spend time on things more profitable, and even though I want to do it all, I can’t do it all. So, I’ll write when I can, but I can’t do the daily writing thing. I feel bad writing that, but I’ll write when I can.
So, for my readers, I’m not leaving forever, but I guess I won’t be updating as often. I really have to focus on other areas in my life, and writing and performing music is one of them, and when I start performing again, I’ll update on the shows, etc.
Thank you for reading and again, I’m not leaving, but I just won’t be as constant as before.
Just a little bit of personal news. I wrote my first local music review for Examiner.com. Exciting! Click on the “examiner.com” icon on the right side of the page to view my first article.
When I was a little girl, I thought I’d become a journalist or novelist, because I have always had a love of writing. That love of writing has segued into song writing and writing lyrics. Since starting this music blog, I have fell in love with writing again. It’s pretty evident that I love music, and as I’ve said before, this blog is about music I like, and I don’t want this blog to be another Perez-Hilton-bashing-celebrities site. The music I put on here is music I personally listen to and I believe should be noticed.
This blog has turned into something bigger than I thought it would be, and I think it will continue to grow.
So, I thank you loyal readers for reading, subscribing, commenting and also encouraging me to continue writing about music and also push further with my own music.
Now, back to your regular scheduled programming…
