phew! i am back.
as you might remember, i volunteered at cmj last week. i've spent the whole time talking non-stop, meeting new people, working, seeing shows, and loving every minute of it.
i feel a little behind on the times in internet land... spent most of today catching up on emails and trying to wade through my very overloaded google reader. but truth be told, it felt good to get out and be awake and alive in actual real life.
i have so much to say to you guys! for instance:
i ended up with a total of three free tote bags from this festival. i found this myspace one the most amusing. looks like they're trying to make a comeback by sponsoring the event, and trying to seem relevant again? i might actually wear this, just for the lulz.
also interesting: i had numerous "industry" people suggest that i actually stop blogging so much. that i spend more time developing my youtube, twitter, and facebook artist page (which i don't have.) and i agree, those things could probably use some more of my attention...
but i think the problem is that i just have too much to say! i start off every week thinking that i'm going to end up with no material for posts. yet i've been filling up the pages almost every day lately!
also, blogging has been the only place- out of all the outlets that i've tried- where the work i do seems to pay off. where i'm cultivating a real audience that's ACTUALLY interested in what i do. and i've recently figured out that this is an important factor in my happiness- whether it's through music or no. i cherish the interactions i have with you guys so much... i'll be darned if i'm gonna give it up!!
besides which, i have no desire to be this generic "music personality" that people only know through a few pictures and half-hearted tweets. i'm a flesh and blood girl. and i have experiences and opinions that i want to express, which unfortunately can't always be contained by witty 140 character sentences.
that said, i might start scaling back my posting levels just a weeee bit... maybe start diversifying my efforts.
anywayyyyy, i hope everyone had a great week. looking forward to catching up with what you've all been up to :)
OH AND PS: the blog party planning is coming along swimmingly!! i have some AWESOME, too-good-to-be-true guest posters sign on so far. i've emailed a few more people, and it might even turn into a 2-day event!!
