A Season of Thanks

It is Thanksgiving morning, and it I have many reasons to pause and give thanks. I will start with my remarkable friends and family, who have been there to support me. For the next few days I will be seeing many of them, and just hope they all know, whether I am seeing them this holiday or not, that I appreciate the love care they have given over the years. And a special welcome to Jaxson, who arrived on schedule the day before Thanksgiving.

I also have so much appreciation for all the talent that make this blog possible. From the artists of yesteryear to the artists of today, with no music, there would be no 'Soundtrack.' But I'd like to offer a special thanks for all the independent artists who have been so kind and supportive of the blog. It really means a lot to a hear from you, and to think I might be doing something right. But, even more importantly, thank you for making music that inspires me to write the posts.

A huge thanks goes to you, the readers of the blog. I started it just about 18 months ago, and had no idea what I was going to do, and if anyone would be interested in what I had to say. I just noticed on the page that there have been over 292,000 hits, something I find mind boggling.

Another huge thank you to other bloggers who have inspire me, support me, and recognize the music on the blog. From the 2010 Bloggie Awards to the blogs who have reposted articles in support of the artists, I truly appreciate all you do.

And, finally, I am thankful to those who have come on the blog to comment about finding a new artist or a new song. That means more to me than just about anything. This is a labor of love, and when someone takes the time to say something about a new artist, it definitely propels me to continue to bring to light the amazing talents of new or little known musicians who should be heard. As much as I love the music of the 70s, 80s and 90s, it is the music being made today that truly gets me excited.

So, while I get to spend some time with visiting family through the weekend, the posting might be a bit on the light side, but just remember, I am grateful to you all.
