When I started this blog, I didn’t really expect very much. As a veteran bedroom-studio musician, I’m used to the tumbleweed of indifference to my creations. I flogged my music through MySpace for a couple of years and got absolutely nowhere beyond a few scraps of encouragement. So, with low expectations to start with, the level of engagement with this blog never ceases to surprise me.
I was really happy with how it went last year, but this month things have moved to another level. For the first time, I’ve had over 50,000 views in a month, with over 1000 views every day. Some days I’ve pushed this along with quite a few tweet-outs, but on others, strange flurries of interest have developed out of nothing; a sudden interest in old blogs, a Facebook post in Sweden or an unexpected plug from the GuardianTeacher site have kept things moving.
