I started this blog almost a year ago, and I’ve been admittedly inconsistent with my posts. I wrote as the spirit moved me, and as I could discipline myself to sit down and just do it! I’d like to have 3 blog posts a week, and I have a couple of ideas for areas of focus:
Social Media – It is certainly my passion of the past year and has affected my life in sooo many ways. My entire scope of friends and contacts has changed, expanded, and grown exponentially. There’s no question I am a twitter addict – “I am powerless over twitter and my hashtags have become unmanageable.” Yes, I DO want to put that on a T-shirt (as a run-on hashtag, btw).
I’m not a fan of people calling themselves social media “gurus” as the medium is still so new and evolving. If we are participating on a regular basis, we all have our experiences and opinions on elements we like or dislike.
Music – I have been a music fan since I was a a pre-teen. I think I’ve wanted to marry a rock star since I was 16 (still waiting on that one, btw).
As some of you know, I was a radio DJ for years… I did college radio in Chicago at Northwestern’s WNUR (which lead to many a club DJ gig), then I had my first “professional” on-air position when I lived in Key West, and then finally for over 10 years I was in Cleveland at Classic Rock 98.5 WNCX. At all of these gigs I have had some wild adventures, been to some amazing concerts and had some fun pix taken. I have a wealth of stories to draw from, as well as passion to move forward with music programming and DJ-ing in new media – I think there will be many options to provide quality music programming via the web, especially as wi-fi comes to cars.
I also want to keep up on new releases, but I need to learn more about many of the new artists. This would afford me the opportunity to have guest bloggers for concert and new releases reviews, and possible interviews as they become available.
So what do you think? What should I cover in my blog? Are there things you don’t want to read? Would you be interested in being a guest blogger?
And a final note – these pictures were taken during one of my recent walks. I used found objects for all of them; I can’t help but think that the “Social Media” pic is a little like The Social Network meets Blair Witch… What would you have thought when you found that left on a sidewalk around Halloween?? A message written in acorns and twigs ? hmmm….
