More Thoughts On The Nature Of The Vocal Challenge
The Vocal Challenge Honeypot I’ve said this before and I will probably say it many times again, I was tempted to Vocal because of the opportunity to make a lot of money from winning the writing challenges. I am sure I am not the only one who was tempted like that and once people realise that they are not going to make money from winning they either leave or reassess their position.
The Music of The Glacier
Falling Into Sigur Rós I once heard the music of Sigur Rós described as glacial, but in a very positive way. The band hail from Reykjavík, Iceland so that is probably not an unexpected description. All their songs are sung entirely in the constructed language Hopelandic (or Vonlenska in Icelandic)., but sound absolutely beautiful.
Experiment IV - An Excercise In Monitoring Vocal Reads
Very Low Reads On Vocal I am always looking for greater insight into things and the problem above is something that has slightly bothered. Firstly I know from interactions with my Vocal audience and people outside of my Vocal audience that my stories are being read.
My Blondie Playlist
Some Blondie Favourites As usual, this one won’t be a greatest hits list, there are plenty of Blondie compilations about and you probably have one in your collection, but these are just a few songs that are my favourites in the Blondie Canon.
A Facebook Heart on a Vocal Story
The Initial Vocal Audience While our Vocal Facebook Groups are a wonderful audience and great for getting some reads, appreciation and feedback for your post, you need to find audiences external to even these wonderful groups if your want more reads (and therefore more money from Vocal). This is just about a minor observation on two album reviews,
Me and Poetry Before Vocal I wrote very little poetry, most of it was free form and did not stick to formal structures. I only published on my blog and then that was it. I am not sure how many people saw my work and whether most of it was just robots but I was glad that I could just get the words down on Seven Days In via my keyboard, knowing that as long as there is power and the internet my words will always be there if people look for them, though coming across them might be just by luck rather than judgement.
