Why Blog?

I've been thinking of doing a blog for a while. Friends of mine do food blogs, and while that's fun for me to read and get great recipe ideas and such, I'm not so much a foodie. Sure, I enjoy food... and I've recently gotten more adventurous in the kitchen, but a connoiseur I am not. So I started reflecting - what could I blog about that I wouldn't quit a month in? The answer was easy... Music!

Why music? It's pretty much my life. I have a degree in music education, I currently work as a musical director at a church, and I pretty much have something playing 24/7. I listen to everything. I have strong opinions, and I can tell you what I like and what I don't like about what I have on. It's not always a popular opinion, but they're strictly MINE.

So what specifically do I like to listen to? It's a loaded question. My Pandora stations vary. I have one that was initially based off the music of Ben Folds, but it's evolved into a hodge podge of everything from folk to jazz to 80s hair bands. I have one of Classical Piano from the Romantic Era. I have one of torch singers from the 30s and 40s. BeBop. And the list goes on... it will largely depend on my mood which I'm listening to that day.

So enjoy my ramblings. Sometimes I'll be reviewing an album, sometimes a song... sometimes a frame of mind. Thanks for joining me on this journey :)
