Today I embark on what could easily be described at an out-dated form of online interaction: a blog.
Why, you might ask, do I choose to do this? And on top of that, why now?
I suppose the answer is two-fold. Firstly, I feel as though I may benefit from a routine of compiling and codifying my musical thoughts. This blog could provide a chance for me to dictate the many unspoken thoughts, concerns, and feelings I have on music, composing, and my life in general. In other words, it's very much for me. I won't go so far as to say 'who cares if you listen?', but I will say I don't expect it.
On that note, however, the second motivation for writing this blog is in fact for others to read. If not for this, a simple journal would suffice. I hope this blog can be a source of musical and artistic discussion amongst myself and my peers. I imagine my friends like Colleen, Jon, Jason, Tom, Andrew, Cory, Elainie, Mike, Keith, and others might actually enjoy hearing what I have to say now and again.
Those of you who know me well will certainly be familiar with my somewhat blunt nature. I hope this transitions well to the blog/written-word arena, and I hope if any of you respond in the future that you will be equally as blunt on your thoughts and feelings.
Stay tuned, I'll post somewhat regularly, and I'll be sure to share to facebook so you're aware of new posts.
- Thanks for listening
