HELLO AND SINCERE APOLOGIES FOR THE LACK OF POSTS! I'm all over the place lately. Like, literally. After I launched the podcast, I posted a podcast profile page at Podbean - where my podcast is (currently) hosted - but you can listen everywhere HERE. Then I launched this page. Then an instagram. Then tiktok...and that's where the trouble started,.
The rabbit hole that is Tiktok is hard to explain, but it really gets you in. Not just as a creator, but mainly as a follower. There's a lot of brilliant work being done on there...yes. But there's also a lot of DRAMA. So much drama. My life has it's own drama, but I have to be honest and say - ever since I stopped dating, the DOPAMINE hit-type drama in my life subsided significantly. The addictive, anxiety-inducing feeling of not wanting to disappear; not wanting to be irrelevant - keeps you hooked. When my romantic life got cut off unceremoniously, I think this is what made me so vulnerable to THE DRAMA.
I will be posting a full update on creative life in my podcast eventually...but in order to do that that I have to crawl out of the rabbit hole and look at it objectively. You see, I recently decided that I had to steer my course in a different direction: one that hopefully has an ACTUAL income attached.
Since the last time I posted, I've been releasing more MUSIC. Four original tracks are out now on SPOTIFY and iTUNES etc which has negligible revenue in my case. And you may recall I started a PATREON, but I don't have many patrons. I probably should promote it more. And while I don't feel uncomfortable asking for support, I don't feel comfortable begging.
But, while I'm in this career transition point, I thought I'd post here, this morning, and let you know that I am starting to upload my music to BANDCAMP. The cool thing about Bandcamp is you can purchase music at a base rate OR choose your own price and make a donation to the artist and there's no ongoing fee to me, to keep my stuff hosted there - at this point in time. Whereas I do pay for this domain name, website and my podcast hosting. If you've ever wanted to support me in the past, but didn't want to commit to patreon, or feel awkward if you started being a patron and then wanted to stop very soon after, you can make a donation via music purchase on BANDCAMP. I've made a lot of stuff over the past three years and yet, I still feel compelled to give stuff away in the hunt for financial support. So if you stumble on this post and feel generous, hit the follow button below to follow my bandcamp...and donate via the purchase of music!
A reminder too, that on my shop page I have a tip jar.
There, I did it. I wrote a post and finally did some publicity for myself. I deserve a treat.
SENDING YOU ALL MY LOVE and thanks for reading this far
