Happy Friday everyone!
I’ve been busy this week behind the scenes at Collected Sounds. Some of the stuff I’m working on:
Last week I published the Collected Sounds event calendar, but I did it with little fanfare in case I mucked it up. But I think it’s good now, so head over to the calendar and you can see all the livestreams that I know about. Feel free to let me know if I’ve missed any good ones! The link will also permanently reside on the right hand navigation bar.
I’ve reopened the original Facebook GROUP for Collected Sounds. It’s private and will remain that way (Facebook won’t let you go back once you’ve made it private and I did that years ago). But you can request to join! Please do, that way we can all talk to each other, share ideas, etc. I’m really hoping for support and input from you all in what you want Collected Sounds to be. I’m all ears!
I created a virtual bookstore on the site. I saw that Tori Amos had a new book out which made me think of all the other books that musicians have written, and I thought it might be nice to have them all in a collection. (see, I like to “collect” things). The link will also permanently reside on the right hand navigation bar on the site.
I’m also working on redoing the logo. I rediscovered my Café Press shop and wow that branding is out of date! So I’m re-creating the logo. It will be a similar graphic, just a little prettier, (and I will NOT be using Comic Sans font. Oh, what a naïve dumb baby I was in the late 90s!)
I took a 2-day writing seminar. I have always considered myself kind of a grammar nerd but sheesh, there’s a lot I don’t know or fully understand. How does ANYONE learn this language if they didn’t grow up with it? It’s very hard!
I also took a seminar on starting a podcast. More on that in the future.
So that was my week! What have you guys been up to!?
