Yes, I quit my old blog. And I feel great about it! I've kept my oldish personal blog that I've written in different forms since 2008, lately just because it was a habit, not because I particularly enjoyed it. Also, I spent too much time with it, and with everything that comes with having a blog like that. I want to do other things with my time, since I was mainly frustrated over different things.
Now I'm only going to blog about music things. Events I go to, thoughts about music-related things, about my own playing, tunes, cool instruments, inspiring videos and whatever. I'm going to make this place rock again! And more importantly, as soon as I stop coughing after this terrible cold, I'm going to re-start playing music for real again. I've been so busy during the autumn, but everything is going to be better from now on. I quit one of my layout jobs, the one I did for the trad music association. It was fun and I learned a lot from doing it, but I definitely don't have the time it requires, especially if I also want to do other things on my days off.
I doubt that there will be any Christmas carol singing from over here (because of the cough) but maybe I'll play you a little something on the concertina or mandolin. Who knows.
This week, however, I'll take up that little box and start practicing Chief O'Neill's favourite and other little tunes. A big yay to that!
