It's late and I'm exhausted...and also getting sick. I've been sitting, staring at the computer for about an hour. Often the words come easy, sometimes they are a struggle. Other days, topics are in between. I wouldn't say I'm necessarily struggling with this piece - it's more an issue of fighting fatigue.
It dawned on me yesterday - sometime after breakfast and before my second cup of overpriced coffee - that you know way more about me than I know about you. The single best part of Rocklahoma for me was meeting those of you who stopped by to say hello. Truly a blessing. Reflecting on those meetings lead to the realization that I pepper a lot of random facts about my life in what I write here.
Thanks to this website, you know my favorite bands are Aerosmith and Motley Crue. You know I'm married, I live in Ohio and that I'm an only child. I had a good childhood, with laid back parents and my mom really likes rock music.
Sometimes I learn things about you, especially if you're a regular reader. I mean, I now know Christian personally - he traveled from Australia so we could go to Rocklahoma together. There are others I know personally too, and I count among my friends.
Some people like to read and never comment. I respect that - in fact, that's what I mainly do on a lot of websites. Still, I think just once in awhile it's good to let your presence be known.
I guess the easiest way for me to learn more about you - and the bands you want covered - is to simply ask.
Here's a few questions:
1. What is your favorite band?
2. What was your very first CD/album/cassette?
3. What bands do you want to read about more here on Bring Back Glam!?
I'll tell you that I have a laundry list of features planned for the coming weeks, including interviews and reviews of about 78 new CDs I have (and no, that number is not exaggerated!)
In case you're wondering, I do remember my first actual CD - it was Mariah Carey's self-titled debut, and I got it with a small CD player for a Christmas gift about a million years ago. I don't remember my first cassette - but I'm pretty sure it was Glam.
