It's Been a Year....

My gosh....I can't believe it's been a year since I started this blog. Time flies... Wanting a more personal approach to my writing outside the JT Irregulars, I started this blog. Never left them , just got a couple of blogs now :) . With a nudge and some assistance from a former girlfriend this blog came into being. It's a been long journey since.
My first blog post was a song/poem that I wrote coming home from a trip to California. Since then, my life has taken many twists and turns. I went from being on cloud nine and fell deep into a hole in my life. Suffered a deep depression with music as being my savior. I managed to crawl out from the abyss and I'm content with the way things are now. (I get a feeling things are going to get better) So this has been a sorta of my diary of things.

All in honesty, I nearly shut down this blog. Yup, I almost did. During my battle with depression I wanted to quit blogging and crawl into a cave. (Or at least try something new) I kept saying to myself, "One more blog" realizing it was both blogging and music that was pulling me through. Kind of glad I didn't stop.

Statically speaking, this blog had it's up and downs. When I started this site had 132 visits in August, then it peaked to 618 last December. It has been declining the last few months, only to rise this month. (Summerfest reviews) I plan to make some changes and advertise my blog on Facebook. If anyone has any ideas or thoughts about my blog feel free to e-mail me.

To conclude this all, I really enjoy writing and I plan to continue. Blogs about music, myself, Racine, my travels, and miscellaneous other things will still prevail here. I may not write everyday. After all, I type notoriously SLOW and it does take up a bit of my time. So please be patient with me.

ABOVE ALL, I want to thank EVERYONE who has read and commented on my site! Without you, this blog would never make it this far. I LOVE YOU ALL! Thanks!
