Time sure moves so fast. Half a year already since I did my first weblogging. 6200++ page views have been generated since. Again, I thank you, dear readers.
Writing sure is not an easy task to do. A lot of time has to be spent to read other articles just to know the subjects that really take on in the real world of classical music.
Yet, this is a very niche subject. Great happenings does not just take place every single day. And concerts are quite rare. Even if they aren’t, I will not have any resources to watch all of them and to make a review for every single one of them.
Subjects are difficult to find, I must say. Presenting a new writing of a certain quality is always difficult, especially after 50 or so writings. Subjects ran dry.
Since readers kept coming, I felt obliged to continue to write and write. I also felt obliged to come up with at least one post every week. This was the first time I dealt with “market demand”, and it’s quite frustrating some time, especially when there is no inspiration and creativity left.
Writing topics other than music also crossed my mind. But I already had dedicated this blog to music, and I should not turn my eyes then. I had to continue doing this kind of stuff, trying to establish something that was and is not common in the world of music blogging in Indonesia. So, made up my mind, and A Musical Promenade is still a music blog up till now. (I hope so)
So, I invite all dear readers to drop a comment or two or suggest a topic that might be discussed here in the blog. I will be very thankful. If you disagree with any statements in any posts, please feel free to express it. I appreciate it very much. I will try to facilitate any those suggestions and statements.
meltarisa, livergirl and other readers have suggested a topic or two. These suggestions have been taken into account. Some are already posted, some are still in the midst of my mind, trying to figure out what to say.
I still try to blog every other day, hoping I can still find suitable and interesting subjects to write about. Is blogging hard? It surely is not that easy. Is it worthed? It definitely is. Wish me luck…
