For many of us, music becomes a drug, way before it becomes a profession. It gives us a rush like nothing else, and when we are in our ‘zone’, whether we are performing, writing or practicing, we feel at one with the universe (As corny as it sounds… it’s the only way I can describe that feeling). Blogging* is one of those new phenomenons that has hit traditional publishing at the foundations. Many traditional editors and writers have slammed its credibility as a medium mainly for it’s casual informal nature, in the sense that anyone can write a blog without adhering to journalistic codes of conduct.
*Blogging (As described in wikipedia) A blog (a contraction of the term “web log”) is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video.
What is ‘The Editor’s Music Blog’?
Well for me as the editor of the Music Producers Forum, it’s my personal log of my journey with music as a musician, songwriter, performer and producer.
Combining music and blogging is nothing earth shatteringly new, but adding a twist of my own journey with people through music, production, songwriting and performance, the plan is to deliver something unique and compelling.
Another feature for the Music Producers Forum is the launching of a podcast series where audio interviews and performances are made available, the reader. But that’s another story…
Down the track, I hope to see more music industry people blogging on the Music Producers Forum, but for now I’ll kick start it as the editor of this humble website, which is a part of the Music Producers Forum eco-system.
Anyway, I’ve just caught up with Max to discuss my next music project. Who is Max? You’ll have to wait for the next post…
