Looking Up by Paramore
"Honestly, can you believe we crossed the world while it's asleep? I'd never trade it in 'cause I've always wanted this and it's not a dream anymore. No, it's not a dream anymore. It's worth fighting for. Could have given up so easily...."
As some of you may know, I run a music blog called The Jukebox. I've been running it on Tumblr since May 2009 and I've made quite a lot of progress, some new friends, and slowly it's becoming a huge success. Anyway, this morning I go onto Facebook (like I always do) to check the fan page for that blog. And I see that a band tagged the fan page in a post. Now, for some reason Facebook hides these posts and I like them to be on the wall. And Facebook also doesn't like to tell me when a fan posts a comment on the wall either. So, I end up going to the "un-hide posts" section of the page and un-hiding them. As I was un-hiding the tagged post, I also see a comment from a fan. This comment was written on Dec. 29th and it made my morning. It really was a nice comment. He's been a fan for a while now and to see that he appreciates what I do, really means a lot to me.
"Could have given up so easily". Yes, yes I could have, but I didn't and I don't plan on doing so yet. I sometimes get down about that blog and I think of deleting it. But I don't, I just keep working at it. Because one day it's going to become a even bigger success, than it already is.
Anyway, after that I was looking at all the other comments I've received over the past 2 years and they're all really touching. And I'm grateful to be able to do this.
Have a lovely day!
PS. Another post will be up tomorrow entitled "It's The Little Things That Matter". That will feature some of the comments from The Jukebox and other things.
