I love writing, performing, recording and practicing music. I dislike promoting my music like I'm trying to sell a U.S. Senate seat.

Over the last three months, I've started to hone in on a little problem I have:

Promoting music on the internet, though effective, is also a bit boring and impersonal. In fact, I'm promoting my music right now, and it is definitely hard just sitting here in my apartment, typing away, staring at a screen, feeling the tendinitis in my elbows flair up, and hearing the birds chirping right outside my door on a beautiful afternoon...

Much of my days are spent alone in my apartment, and I think that's really the rub for me of promoting my music on the web.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share...
