Welp, not in my wildest dreams would I have been able to imagine up with the reality I am now in.
I never thought keeping a website/blog would turn into this. Not at all. But thank God it did.
The music this site has brought into my life, opportunities this thing has afforded me, the careers advancements its placed in front of me… the way its outright changed my life.
Interestingly enough…. I never though much of blogging, actually kind of hated the idea. Until some notably great friends kept bugging me to do it. So I did. They were right. I am grateful.
From there, its kind of become much more than I thought it would be. A lot more, actually.
2 years down the line, I find myself at a major crossroads in both life and career. Now while these are changes that I am more than ready for at this point, they have a direct effect on this site, my writing and its content. I’ve always kept it relatively nerdy with the occasional letter screaming at the Grammys for stupid changes, and had intent to add more editorial commentary and news. I never spoke of the Social Media Management, Public Relations work, so on so forth. Now, with the new occupations I have… I’m sure I’ll be running across a lot more music and news that really need to be shared (sideeyes Jill Scott). For the first time in the history of this site… I really want to. People might actually give a shit now.
My main concern with focusing slightly less on the nerdery and slightly more on News and Current Events/Editorials is possibly coming off like a gossipy whore, or lose site on with this place is about: fairly nerdy obscure music you don’t find out about until a year later. I know I can do it… I just need some time to reassemble my brain and get into it. Hard to keep up with something like this with the 9011 jobs I have by myself. No matter what happens from here… I can basically guarantee you that its going to be amazing.
Regardless of my “where is this going?” rant, I want to thank anyone who is reading this crap, have read this or will read this crap. I hope you continue to come by and visit once in a while and bring a friend when you do. You guys have been amazing with all my spelling and grammar errors and site change/upgrades/404 pages. I appreciate it. In 2012 I hope you stick with me and watch all the hard work I’ve been putting into this life has finally paid off. I promise you.
2012 is going to be the shit.
See you soon.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
