What’s up world. Today has finally given my home a chance to bask in the sun rather than bathe us in its rain as it has done for the past two days. The downside is after the rain when the sun comes out its …..oh so muggy. Hot and muggy to be exact. Which is the most common reason for people hating my home…..but it’s my home nonetheless and I love it.
On another note, lately I have been checking out blogs of different types, not just the ones I’m used to reading, but blogs concerning business, entertainment, art, etc. You name it and there is a blog for it. I follow a couple of high school classmates who blog about fitness and health…..and of course…. fun!!! I must admit, reading other peoples thoughts gives me a means to look at myself and ask questions about what I really do with my life.
The thing I’m starting to realize with blogging is the potential it has for growing an audience for whatever it is you do. I remember starting my blog not knowing where I would end. I just felt that it was important to utilize this channel of technology for letting the world know I am here. I mean, it’s available to all, so we should put it to use.
Some people may say that feeling that way is self centered maybe, others may feel its informative and it has a purpose. I say it’s important to find a way to make people aware of whatever it is you have to offer. It could be advice, it could be a product that you offer, or if you are like me it could be both.
I’m no genius but I am an artist. Someone who is overly simple in his own mind but complex and complicated to people who personally know me (at least that’s what I’ve been told). I have always had a desire to show the world what I was given and that I will always a hip hop head who is trying to achieve the goal of success. I think there are plenty of people who can relate to the struggle of branding their artwork and making a living doing what they do best. Then there are those people who just relate because they too are living life and facing struggles even though they may not do what you do.
Maybe it’s just words of encouragement, something that makes a stranger believe that they too can start their own journey. Words are powerful and they do influence so I hope to one day look back on some of my posts and realize that it was worth the time and effort. Maybe one day this will be a lucrative hobby for me. After all, I did start blogging as a means to give my artwork a home on the Internet so people can follow me on my path and support me and my business of making music.
From this day forward I realize the power that this blog possesses so I will now use it with my best ability. It’s become ever so clear to me now and I will do my best to show the struggles and the victories of an artist. I feel as if maybe there is another artist out there who wants to succeed at their craft and through seeing another artist, such as myself, trying…well maybe they can feel inspired. It’s a cycle that I have encountered reading others blog about their experiences.
In closing, I’ve begun to see the advantages of making sure to give everything my all. Not just my life or my music, but this blog as well. You can’t expect to win if you don’t utilize the tools to success with every ounce of your ability. If the people know that your outlook on whatever your passion is pure and honest, they are more likely to accept whatever it is you offer.
