Sonicfrog.Net – 9 Years And Counting!

Happy Blogaversary to me… Us!

I started this blog as a means to improve my spelling and writing skills as I was beginning my journey to become a credentialed teacher. I wanted to improve my vocabulary. My typing skills honestly absolutely sucked nine years ago. I got my credential 5 years ago, but so far, have not worked full time as a teacher.

All is not lost.

Though I may not be teaching, and my blog never got popular like some others did, and there is certainly no money in this, I don’t regret blogging for one minute. No. It hasn’t been a waste of time. There have been other unanticipated benefits to this blogging exercise.

I have been writing songs since I was 13. Many of them were born of the angst I has as a teen and the struggles of being a lonely twenty-something. When I came to find peace within myself and stopped fighting against the one thing in my life that I resisted, that I am, was, and always will be gay… Well… I kind of lost the muse that inspired so many of my songs, the struggles of life.

As life got easier to deal with, my lyric writing slowed to a halt.

Last year, I started to write a few songs again. Much to my amazement, the words would flow out of me easier than they ever had even at the height of my miseries. That is a direct result of committing myself to sit down and write a blog post, even when I wasn’t always in the mood. Practice may not make perfect, but it does make better! And that trained me to be able to write on a whim. Now it come almost too easy! This has revealed another weakness that must be worked on… I need to relearn music theory and learn many more chords.

The second HUGE way that my blog has changed my life…. I have started writing a book!

Everyone is doing it! If not for the nine years of blogging, I couldn’t type as decently as I can now. I’m not “fast” by any means, but I’m certainly much much better at it than I was at the beginning of 2005.

I’ll provide more details on the book soon.

I just want to thank the internets for letting me do my thing and make a mess here on Sonicfrog. I promise – One day, I will repay you by becoming a great success and gobs of money and wealth when I am a world renowned writer / songwriter / teacher / person / thing….

🙂
