One of my passions in life is music. I have spent a number of years as a Mobile DJ. Not a full-time job but a hobby of passion. My motto/tag-line as a DJ was, ‘It’s all about You!’. When you DJ you don’t play to please yourself, but rather, to please your audience.
This blogging 101 assignment was to write for your ‘dream reader’. Of course the first step is to identify that dream reader! The ‘audience’. I over-analysed the assignment. My dream reader at this point, as I am still learning to blog, includes YOU the reader and ME the writer, therefore, US.
YOU are the person who sticks around to read and hopefully through comments helps me hone in a true ‘target dream audience’ and other blogging skills. I realise that I am a part of the ‘audience’ since my words need to represent me.
In the last assignment I gleaned a sense of the direction I would like this blog to take. That direction includes serving as a reminder of my blessings and chronicling my growth and joy.
So now a moment to acknowledge some recent joy in my life!
Music is such a sense of joy for me. For the last 2 years or so I have been unable to DJ due to a disability from which I am recovering. Living on a boat requires space-consciousness, as such, there is really no room for my massive Vinyl and CD collection. A sense of depression had kind of set in without me realising it until about a month ago when I rediscovered Spotify!
Spotify was offering, 3 months for the price of one, and now I can’t get enough. I am discovering so much new music and rediscovering music lost track of. I love seeing what the people I follow are playing in Spotify as a source for discovering new music.
Tonight as I write I have been listening to my Electro-swing playlist.
Good night US!!!
