Here is the Friday Five:
1. Explain why you started to journal/blog.
I have to thank e.j. for getting me started on this road about 5 months ago. I came back from the Monterey Jazz Festival filled with music information and reviews and needed a place to put them. We came up with a couple of names for the domain and j-notes kinda stuck. I had submitted a few reviews in the past to other places but later learned that no one will embrace your dream like you.
2. Do people you interact with day to day or family members know about your journal/blog? Why or why not?
Yes, my family does know about my journal/blog and they are very loving and supportive. They provide me some great feedback. My brother and nephew did not know I could write and I provide a resource for my niece to learn more about jazz. My friends just wonder what took me so long to do this. I recently printed out the weblog and sent it to my mom and she was quite impressed and proud. 🙂
3. Do you have a theme for your journal/blog?
My first love is jazz but in general, I love good music and that’s what is featured here.
4. What direction would you like to have your journal/blog go in over the next year?
Life, as is this journal, is an everwinding road and we just never know where the road will lead us. I am thoroughly enjoying and it has been more of a blessing to me than I ever could have imagined. Providing good information about good music is my goal. Maybe a new layout later in the year.
5. Pimp five of your favorite journals.
Being a newbie to the weblog world, I have a few that I really enjoy and I am checking out new ones all the time. Check out My Blogging Homies list on the right.
