Helping Each Other
Some may criticize the blog world, but where else can I spill my guts ( not unlike Gutzy) about the trials of an independent life, and find such a great outpouring of support and advice. I’m grateful for those who wrote back both on this block and my in box.
Many have told me that my blog helps them. Well….we all help each other. You have shown me that I need to be reminded of the diligence that is needed in a creative life ( a subject I have talked about often) . That’s why us artists and writers stick together.
When I think I have run out of resourcefulness, you show me more paths. I’m glad that Frog in a Suit has stayed out of the hands of the media giants. Fantastic.
Somewhat on the same note, I read an article this week in Time magazine about You tube, and the internet audience. They allude to the fact that it’s viewed more as an outlet for those alternative sources of creativity, and that “mainstream” or at least those who have had exposure more on traditional television, are not so welcome with original content. I’m not talking about clips that appear on You tube from shows, I’m talking about a known content creator doing his own thing has not met with the same numbers as “Unicorn farting rainbows.” Are the internet audience more connected with that content?
My thoughts are when TV channels blend with the internet, ( as they are starting to do now) we will still see a separation of the mainstream and mavericks?
