I am the owner of two businesses and they require all the time I have available. Marketing these businesses is just not easy. You can spend days promoting your products and services. This can go on totally alone, by itself, no other task involved. This fact is quite shocking to any neophyte businessman; he becomes bewildered by the amount of time he has to spend on marketing. I'm accustomed to the fact now, but in the beginning, it knocked me to the floor. You start out with hopes for a successful business, thinking it won't be too hard to succeed; then you are floored by what marketing that business will cost you in time and money. You then see why most businesses fail. The decision to stop or carry on appears abruptly - What should I do? I've made the choice to carry on, I know I will be very successful. But you like many others probably feel enough is enough and let it go. I guess that's the difference in me and others. We all are unique. Those are my thoughts for now, later.

Well, they cut him out- Sanjaya that is. But wait, I've picked him as a real entertainer. The young man has something. He's definitely not afraid of the camera and his singing skills are OK(from the little I've heard). Sanjaya if you can hear me, I would love to write and produce your debut album. You got it man, believe me I know! You did a lot for American Idol and don't ever forget it. American Idol is entertainment and you definitely entertained the viewers. Sanjaya, I'll be watching what you do from here on out and if it's destiny we will hook-up. Give it up for American Idol everybody! I had to talk about Sanjaya because I think he has what it takes to be a success in the music industry. He's one of my homies in the bis' now. Good luck, Sanjaya, your making me proud. Bye, folks.

I just finished talking with the family. Yes, I have family and they are doing just fine. My niece called to say hello and it sure made my day. Later I spoke to one of my nephews and he's enjoying his return home. Things are looking real good in 2007. I told them about my plans and adventures in the recording industry. My niece and I recalled my first semi-serious attemps at song-writing and recording. Those were the days. She believes I can make a legit run at this recording thing. It's good to know that the family has my back, because in the music business your back usually gets stabbed. That's about it for today, later.

I'm in the United Kingdom now. An online gallery has put my art on the world wide web. All my peoples in the UK and everywhere else can see my creations live. Marketing is heating up for me and I'm very happy about it. I know that if my artwork is seen it will sell. I have to continue to apply pressure on the marketing end, and this new member of my team really makes me feel good. Hooray for the UK! My artistic talents are finding their place in the world, and this UK gallery is just one more notch in my marketing belt. My framed art, my paintings, my music will all be accepted universally, and mankind will be the beneficiary of this wonderful artistic output. Signing off, bye.

The album is 'crazy', I mean 'crazy'. The bass, the treble, it's all in there waiting for your ears. What I'm about to release to the world is a masterpiece. All my hard work paid off, and now I have the album I wanted and then some. The vocals are the best and are 'off the chain', they're going to leave you spellbound. I already know how the videos are going to look - the world is going to be shocked and amazed by my dance skills. Some of the 'joints' will cause tears, others will shoot you with pure dance energy. I hear you, I hear you - it's coming, it's coming! Not long to wait! As you go through life try to look at the flowers sometime. So long.

Finally, I make it back to my blog. I've been working at marketing my framed art, and it had me caught up for days. Ask any real business person and they will tell you that marketing can take a lot of your time. But I'm back now and I had to let you guys know that I'm alive and in excellent shape. Let me speak on this marketing thing. I've got this wonderful site at: Framed Art. This site has exciting colorful works that I know anyone would love to have in there home or business. I am doing my best to market this fine site and let the world enjoy my artwork, but the marketing of it is taking more time, much more time than I expected. Things are going ok, though, and I know the results of my efforts will show sooner or later. Everybody, hold your head up, look into the sky and feel good!

Today's thoughts were centered on starry images: the heavens above. I awoke feeling light as the floating sky above, and this wonderful sensation was the catalyst for a flowing in of images consisting of galactic, starry, milky way type designs. I seem to have an affinity for this kind of stuff. For some time I have been captured by ideas related to the stars, and now I think I really want to created some beautiful eye-catching artwork with that theme in mind. The works are going to be absolutely breathtaking. I want the artwork to speak and I want it to speak loudly. You won't be able to resist their influence, this I promise you. Take care.

I'm making a final decision on the songs to be put into my debut album. This is proving to be a very hard job because there are quite a few songs I have to choose from. I'm one of history's most prolific songwriter-singer-producers. Having to choose among so many tunes was and is dufficult for me. I want you folks to here them all. But I know that isn't possible, so I've been choosing and choosing. The result is a most wonderful album, believe me, my album is the 'bomb'. Everybody will feel these songs, they hit you hard. I'm up day and night finishing the album, you guys won't be disappointed. Later, alligator.

What up, peoples?
I'm just taking a break from two days of straight marketing. I've been studying Google, studying Yahoo, studying everything. As I have said before, marketing must be done if you choose to eat. It can be very hectic and you will need rest after doing it. There is no room for complaining, there is only room for effort. My main thought was centered on selling reproduction rights to my art. I was considering selling some of those rights to printers to use on various items(prints, greeting cards, etc...). Well, it's been days since starting with the thought and I've still not made a decision. This is not something to make a quick judgement on, it is a very important issue in an artist's career. Reproduction rights are not to be given away easily, the artist must be extremely careful in allowing others to reproduce his artwork. I'll sleep better tonight because the issue is now clearer in my mind, and a decision will be made soon. Until next time.
