Welcome to my new blog! It will be sticking around for quite some time, so get excited.
So why did I create a new blog, you’re probably wondering. Well…
1) It’s prettier, and I have my fabulous graphic designer friend Alyssa Osborne (alyssa.osborne [at] gmail [dot] com) to thank for that. James Connors helped a bunch with the tech stuff. They’re good people.
2) It has a purpose. For those of you who already know me, I started my other blog Repcor: My Sentiments Exactly a few months ago. It was a terrific introduction to the social media space… but had no real focus whatsoever. This blog will.
3) I wanted to find a way that I could truly contribute, and writing about music makes the most sense.
As you’ll read in the ever amazing Who is Rebecca? section, I’ve been a giant music nerd for just about my entire life. It has always been what makes me happiest, and I’d really love to write about the various musical stuff I stumble upon on the Internet and in everyday life.
So, what will be in my blog?
Far too many times, I’ve walked by a random street performer dude who deserves way more attention than the crowd of 15 people standing around him. How awesome would it be to take a short video clip and share it with everyone? Or perhaps feature random people’s muxtapes. Maybe record my own personal beat boxing sessions while walking to work.
Regardless, this blog is founded on the premise that music a) brings people together, b) gives us something to talk about and c) ignites some sort of emotion in all of us. To some degree, at least. Unless you don’t have any feelings. In that case, I can’t help you.
Hope you enjoy! Please feel free to throw feedback in my direction. As I said, this is still in the works, and I want to make sure it goes super well.
So… what do you think? :)
