I gotta say, more than anything else...this past week has been interesting. With a series of ups and downs...ranging from cleaning house to being rejected for a DJing performance, I have realized my marketing strategy is not working. It's a shame I won't be able to perform, sure....but, more than anything I'd very much like to attend this convention...and hang out with the people I've spent the past 4 years talking to and learning from.
There's so much I can say about MAGFest, it's hard to believe I haven't been there yet. From cosplayers, to video game remixers, to just web personalities such as the Angry Video Game Nerd...there is a LOT of variety and such a chance to network, rarely comes along.
...and while it's been nice building up my reputation as a composer/producer/blogger or whatever else, it's hard to come to terms with the fact that I haven't been able to meet the vast majority of this amazing and talented community. I would definitely not be where I am today, without their help.
This blog is definitely not a beg, and it's certainly not panhandling...but in order to continue my work/craft...
I need help...
In order to keep going on the current path I'm travelling:
- Get a website
- Create physical copies
- Better marketing strategy
These are all costly goods and I simply just...do not have the funds. With the amount of money I've had to use in order to get this far...I've just not been able to make ends meet.
So this post is pretty much a last resort, in any hope of getting to MAGFest. I can't promise anything at the moment...but I have worked on some pretty neat stuff lately. With time, I plan to have my own line up of candles and perler bead art, to add on to the "studios" portion of my business. So music, blogging, and other crafts will all become a part of the business I've tried to create and establish myself in.
...and if I had a functioning camera, I'd show you all right now what new items I've created.
However, I haven't a cent to my name currently to buy myself an SD Card reader.
So if any of you read this, and would like to help me get to MAGFest...I promise I will more than make up for your generous contributions. Releasing brand new music, candles, and whatever else comes to mind. Also, if anyone has an idea for new things you'd like to see me create (or remix?), please, leave a comment.
