Songs are like tattoos
You know I’ve been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
And there is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there’re so many sinking
Now you’ve got to keep thinking
You can make it thru these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs
Lots of laughs
Everybody’s saying that hell’s the hippest way to go well
I don’t think so, but I’m
Gonna take a look around it though Blue
I love you
Here is a shell for you
Inside you’ll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me
Copyright Joni Mitchell
I thought. “Wow, what an easy way to publish posts. Select a bunch of pictures, find a relevant song lyric and hit the button.
That really doesn’t do much for you dear reader. I could do what another blogger does and profess about every topic under the sun, but I don’t know about every topic under the sun.
So, let’s talk about something I do know. Let’s talk about achieving popularity which is created in a number of ways. Let’s forget marketing which changes monthly as technology changes almost hourly.
Popularity is created by simplicity, luck and removing artistic standards.
Ever look at a website like Wayfair?
The biggest selling photographs for your wall are the very pictures I never make. Bland sunsets, bland landscapes, blander skies. Most people buy that stuff. They want wall coverings. They don’t want art.
This isn’t a rant.
It’s sharing data that I’ve built up in the past few months. Since I want the new and improved Storyteller to actually turn a profit, I have to shift my thinking and workflow.
For me that’s harder than you think.
