I have to say, it has been a great couple of weeks for this blog, and I can't tell you what it has meant to me. This blog would not exist without the talented and gifted artists who are the literal soundtrack to my day. Over the past few months, there have been a couple of new discoveries, but for the most part, I am taking a tour of my iPod and my record collection.
Ari Gold referenced my post!
Christopher Dallman appreciated my posts.
Collective Soul not only read, but liked my post!
I never expected this to be much more than me posting some fond memories of my life, and chat about some of my favorite indie performers now, maybe exposing them to a few more fans. That is how it was going, much to my delight. But over the last two weeks, I have heard from the artists more than ever before. I was getting Tweets from several for the most recent posts, and I suddenly realized they might be reading the blog.
Dave Patten was appreciative.
Eric Himan promised to come to the area soon.
Mikey Wax was very nice.
Aiden James is so nice!
Derek Nicoletto read and posted!

I guess I just wanna say thanks to all these artists, and I am so glad I don't sound like an idiot. I just wanted to take the time to say I appreciate they took the time to read my words and contact me. Much like I appreciate those who stop by and leave comments, and those who stop by to read. Without you, I'd be mumbling to myself. Three weeks ago I celebrated 10,000 hits. Last Friday, the counter tipped past 15,000. Thank you all for sharing the experience.
