2014 is merely over and in a few hours a new year will begin, so it’s high time that…
…I set some music-related resolutions for 2015!
New Year’s resolutions get a bad rap! I’ve been doing some reading up on them and people are saying that only 8% of those goals are actually kept!
Well I’m confident that I can keep my resolutions as long as I do a little journaling & accountability along with it throughout the year, because there are things I’ll legitimately want to do and make them newfound habits 😀
What about new year’s resolutions that directly affect my music life?! Let’s make some shall we?
1. Listen to more music
Now this is a funny resolution I’ll admit, but I honestly am a chronic listener to albums I’ve discovered that I love and playlists I make of favorite songs. I’d like listen to at least 1 new album from every New Music Tuesday and at least write 1 album review per month!
2. Stay up on the local music scene
I know of local artists and bands of course because Nashville is packed full of them 😀 but what about reading up on the local artists/bands and popping in on local shows as often as I can? What I love the most about Nashville is the intimate shows that we have every night of the week! Small venues, spectacular songwriters, and stellar music! I’m talking about visiting open mic nights at the Blue Bird Cafe and taking a look at the music right in my backyard, so to speak.
3. Use Twitter to stay connected
I honestly never had a Twitter before starting Music Row Girl when I did on January 24th. Well I guess I do technically have a personal Twitter, but I never knew what the heck to do with it! HAHA Twitter is such a valuable source for connecting with artists/bands and staying a part of the conversation. It’s a powerful tool and I want to use it way more in 2015!
These are the main music goals that I’ve been thinking about for the past few months and I think they’re absolutely doable! I’m proud to be a part of the music industry and listening to more new music, connecting more with the locals, and engaging in conversation with fellow music freaks on Twitter is the way of the future for MRG!
In closing, I must tell you that in the first year of my blog (which began on 1/24/14) I’m closing in on just over 171,000 total views! I love to write and this has been such a rewarding experience for me to write about something I love so much: MUSIC.
Thank you to every single person who has read my posts & supported me and to all the Discover artists/bands I’ve worked with so far. I’m looking forward to expanding my coverage of Discover blog posts in 2015 and I’ll be emailing you all about that soon!
Happy New Year everyone and may 2015 be the best year ever for all of us!
