Digg is one of those communities that seem to be a good thing but like any thing it can be abused and a little confusing if not unfair. So I have been a member of Digg since November of 2007 and have increasingly participated in submissions and getting and receiving shouts and digging friends’ submissions on a regular basis through out the day. I have accumulated 617 friends mostly by being notified that I had a fan and making them a friend.
Let’s rewind to 2004, just a short five years ago. In January 2004, almost 50 percent of the entire U.S. Internet population visited eBay each month. If people were bored at work, chances are they were surfing the pages of eBay and unearthing eccentric auction items they never even knew existed. This was the height of the personal intrest eBay heyday.
Nevertheless, becoming a songwriter is not just about composing a story. As a songwriter, your role extends to four dimensions: a lyric writer, wherein you write the words; a melody writer, wherein you choose the best notes for the lyrics; a chord writer, wherein you put the chords and scales with the melody; and a lead sheet writer where you have to become adept with being a player of rhythm, a talker, a reader and a writer all at the same time. The idea of becoming a songwriter is interesting especially because music is a non ending fad. Everyone likes listening to music and lyrics play a big part in the making of a song.
A blog is very similar to a web site. Depending on the type of blog that you have or want, a blog site can look just like a web site and in many cases, blogs can actually be incorporated into a person’s website so that others don’t have to bother with clicking around to get where they need to go. Typically, blogs are there to provide information about a particular product or brand. Many professionals have their own fast cars that they keep in addition to whatever company website that they have. Blogs are more personal and help readers get to know the author on a more intimate level.
Back at the men’s apartment, Kasey and Justin shared an uncomfortable conversation about their upcoming date. A confident Justin assured Kasey that he would not be the one going home, and it seemed like too much for Kasey to bear, so he got up and left the room. Nervous? On the group date, Frank finally wrangled some alone time with Ali, and she called him out on his lack of assertiveness during group dates. He apologized for not being more aggressive and vowed to do a better job of it. Later in the water, Ali retrieved a frosty Beauty and the Beast rose and offered it to Ty. Ty glowed, Chris L. brooded, and Frank found inspiration to fight harder in his quest to win the girl.
Get Your Target In Front of You Daily: Make sure you’re always seeing your goals. Post them up in big letters on your wall. Type your goals into your screensaver (text option). Program into your phone calendar alerts to remind you of your goals once a day. (This works great!) But remember, your goals shouldn’t be worded in a boring, pain in the butt way. Keep them laser focused and emotion stirring. Avoid: Lose ten pounds. Try: “Lose ten pounds so I when I see (enter ex’s name here) at the benefit party next month his/her jaw is gonna hit the floor.” Ok that’s a bit long but it works! I would literally write that as a goal. lol.
You’ll most likely write some pretty bad tunes when you start out. Everyone does. That’s ok, don’t get disheartened. With practice and inspiration, hopefully, you’ll start writing some music that you’re happy to play to people.
