BACK TO BLOGGING
So why the return? Well, my friend James Danderfer has a blog and he posts every Saturday. I enjoy reading it and it made me realize how much I missed writing posts. I'm not sure if he has purposely written with a specific 'style' in mind but I like his style. Honest, from the heart and funny. He has lots to say and writes it in a way that I think is kind of cool.
Time is going to continue to be an issue but I'm going to do my best to make sure I take a few minutes each week to post even if its short. The honesty thing....well, Im not quite sure how that is gonna play out but I will certainly be careful, thoughtful and factual when criticizing something. Having said that, criticizing and being negative is far from what this blog is about anyways. As for whether or not my posts are interesting or not....well, I'm not going to care. I will write and hopefully you will get a laugh, go buy a recording that I recommend, check out a show I talk about or want to enter into a dialogue about some of the things I talk about. Or you might gather that I'm an idiot and write me off completely. That's okay to!
Another reason that I wanted to return to posting is I really get excited when I hear a new record that I really like and I want to share it with as many people as I can. I am taking a hiatus from my 'Chasin The Train' radio show so I don't have that outlet in which to preach about new recordings etc. Talking about the latest recordings that I get is something that was very prominent in my previous blog posts and will continue to be very prominent in my new posts. There are such few places now you can find out about or get personal recommendations about recordings so hopefully you will check something out that I recommend or at least have your interest peaked.
