2016 is going to be a great year. I’m going to be graduating from university in May, I’m going to travel quite a bit this year, and this blog will just get bigger and better. It will be a milestone because 1966 was 50 years ago and 1976 was 40 years ago so we can celebrate all the amazing singles and albums that came out those years! Who knows, maybe I can blog full time?
I started this blog in March, so it’s not quite a year old yet, but it will be soon! The blog started off strong, but I want it to get even stronger. I want to make the blog better by giving it a domain name and better layout and I want to make The Diversity of Classic Rock more than just a blog. I want to make a video companion. I am an aspiring radio presenter after all and I’m sure those who haven’t heard me on the radio are curious about what I sound like. Well it won’t be a mystery because I have a video up on my Patreon.
So what is Patreon? If you are on Youtube, you might know of people who have one. It’s to help fundraise for what they do online. In my case, it’s more blogging. A lot of information is not available online and some topics I want to cover are going to require a lot more research. It’s like a tip jar. It’s not mandatory and even if you don’t donate, you’ll still be seeing quality blog posts about classic rock, but I really appreciate any donations I get and I want to give back by making this blog even better.
If you’re broke like me there are other ways to help with the blog that don’t involve donating money.
- Tell your classic rock story. The fans of classic rock are as diverse as the musicians and their influences. Fans are very important because these musicians wouldn’t be where they are without them. Talk about who you are and how you got into classic rock, tell a story about a concert you went to. Tell any interesting classic rock stories within reason. This is not a tell all gossip blog.
- Help out with a future blog post! I’m writing about European classic rock bands at the moment and it’s just me writing every single post on this blog. If you have knowledge about bands from continental Europe, comment on this post or contact me. Whichever method works! I’m on Facebook and Twitter too! The next post will be about Scandinavian classic rock musicians and I might need a little help with that. Upcoming posts will include: French, Swiss, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Greek, and Eastern European (which includes former USSR countries) classic rock musicians. Other countries I plan to talk about are the UK, Canada, and Australia. And of course I’ll be talking about classic rock in America. Rock and roll was only invented there!
- And most importantly sharing this blog with your friends! 🙂 Word of mouth and sharing through social media is huge and it does a lot for a small blogger. Support small businesses!
