I started “Blogging 201” http://dailypost.wordpress.com/courses/blogging-201-branding-and-growth/ last week and have been making some changes with the website.
I am not done yet.
These are not tweaks – these are discarding the clutter to keep the vision clear.
I am not abandoning rock music—I am bringing it with me on my new adventures.
I just need to stand up and declare to my music purist friends – that I am not one, or at least; not a good one.
Although I respect and admire those of you that stay on point and on topic. I guess I do not have the discipline to keep this blog “In the lines”.
I am faced with two options –
One: Abandon it altogether and do something more “useful” with my time.
Two: Rock it out in the direction it is pulling me and go as far as it will take me—with feeling.
So here we go with option two and you are most welcome to join me.
And as always-Cheers from the cave!

Thanks for stumbling by my blog Wayne – am definitely a newbe at this but learning all the time – agree you cannot separate subject from self – we are what we are and we are what we do – it all makes the world an interesting place!
Yes to all that Gail. 🙂
When I found no purpose in it, I found love. :). Keep them coming bro, and if not, stay well.
Don’t worry…in the imortal words of Judas Priest “you gotta another thing comin”—- this has been both my sanctuary and my escape.
Wayne, Bud: You have jumped the cliff of faith…and now the sky is yours…
Thanks Doc, we will see where I land.
I will get you in a cowboy hat yet, mister! I rebranded when I realized I could best promote music by including more of my interests. It became very liberating and I look forward to this next chapter in your blog.
Thank you – it is time to open up all the rides and shows in this county fair brain of mine- i can’t contain it!—-The challenge is to keep it easy to navigate and a great visit. “It’s a freeing up, people should envy us, I envy us” 😉
You should know my take on this by now. What started for me as a blog about video games has become so much more…a reflection of me. I can’t help it. My life and interests are so much more than one primary thing. And I see the same in you. We are artists, Wayne. We are pulled and pushed. Let the music be your guide. Let your interests be your guide. Whatever, however – just don’t stop writing.
Thank you Sarca… The song quote that comes to mind with all the cheese intact … “I can’t fight this feeling anymore” 🙂
Blogging 201 – I like that. ______ 101 is often used to describe a beginner concept, makes sense to have an intermediate version.
And to quote John Mayer’s No such thing:
“They love to tell you
Stay inside the lines
But something’s better
On the other side”
So wherever outside the lines the blogging journey takes you, go for it!
Yes and thanks…I figured I stumbled through the 101 stuff by myself so I jumped right in the 201 end of the blogging pool.
