Blue Beach Song Creations Update: June 27, 2012
| Posted yesterday on my Blue Beach Song Blog: BlueBeachSong.com |
One of the things I enjoy most about having varied interests and abilities, is the variety of creative ways that I can express myself and the world I experience – no doubt you do too. Unfortunately, that also means that there are periods in time when I feel most creative through one particular outlet – like my music, or my writing, or my photography, or my graphic designs – and need to focus on just that one creative outlet, while reluctantly putting the others quietly on the shelf.
Now is such a period. Lately, and with some guilt, my writing (this blog) and my music have taken a backseat to my photography and graphic designs, which I call Blue Beach Song Creations and sell through my Zazzle shop, Blue Beach Song™. I thought it might be worth writing about, lest you think I’ve fallen off the face of cyberspace.
Symbiotically, I also try to focus on the marketing side of these creations, which include the use of Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, SoundCloud, YouTube, and new venues like Pinterest. Most recently, I’ve been creating Pinterest boards and uploading photographs to a new Facebook Page, Blue Beach Song Photography, to accompany Blue Beach Song Cove. Although it does involve a bit of work and a commitment of time, all of these social media sites are great ways to meet new people, share ideas, and promote your artistic endeavors.
If you think about it, it is an amazing time in history to be a creative person, a Renaissance woman or man. The Internet, the World Wide Web, and the technology available to us, all together, provide us with endless opportunities to be creative and profitable, to be self-published writers and philosophers, to be CD/MP3-selling songwriters and singers, to be marketable artists and photographers, to be successful entrepreneurs and self-employed work-at-home parents. What an amazing time!
Wishing you inspiration, motivation and success. I’ll see you in cyberspace… -Martie
