[This is double posted to Moomin Light]
I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions, but I did make a January decision this year (grin). I'm changing the way I do Musiclectic.
I haven't posted in over a month. Now, I've had knee surgery and sick kids so I haven't had much time. Still, I haven't even had the slightest impulse to do so. I realized that I've been going about posting here the wrong way. Two changes:
- I realized that I'd consider posting a song or piece, but I'd
decide not to because some day I might want to use it as a Friday Fun
Song on Moomin Light. In other words, I wasn't posting my absolutely favorite music here. Music I enjoy, yes, but I was saving my very favorite music -
which also means that I was separating music into two categories. I
didn't want to do that either. Now, I'm going to post whatever I want
to on Musiclectic, and, if I want to repost it on Moomin Light later
(as in years, not just months, if I keep blogging that long), I will.
- Since I did major in music, and planned to go into it as a career, I had this feeling that I should be more "professional" and less "chatty" on Musiclectic. Quite frankly, I found it less interesting to write that way. It was easier just to quote somebody else. Now, I'm going to be as chatty, personal, and anecdotal here as I am on Moomin Light.
- Since I called this blog "Musiclectic," I felt like I had to have a wide variety of music and have all the types more equally represented. That's never going to happen because there's a lot more folk music that I like than there is hip hop. It's still going to be eclectic, but I'm just going to post what I feel like posting and what's in my head (rather than looking for something to "balance it out").
