After getting a bit of verbal abuse on blogtv yesterday I didn't feel much like giving it another go today - but I'm glad I did. It's really not worth giving up and letting the bad guys win. I realise now that if I let them upset me then I'd just as well be handing them a trophy and giving them a pat on the back - and I'd be letting too many wonderful people down anyhow.
So today I did my first 'proper' gig on blogtv and despite the occasional plonker, I really enjoyed it. I mean reeeeeeeeeeally. There were so many lovely people on there and it felt like they were in the room with me. They gave so much wonderful support and made me feel really comfortable. I was a bit nervous at first, but after a few songs I think I was alright.
Something that never ceases to make me go all goosebumpy is when people know my originals - and say "Can you sing Tea Leaves?" (or "the teabag song" as some people call it! lol) or "I Live Through the Song?" It's the best feeling ever. Each song is like a little piece of what I'm thinking - just a little expression - and it's wonderful how people can find their own meanings in the songs - I feel so flattered.
Anyway - all in all - a very good day. I also had a surprise visit from a very good German friend of mine that I hadn't seen in ages this morning - which was lovely.
Bye for now,
