What’s up everybody! This past week I celebrated a significant milestone for my scribble scrabbles – Metal Injection published an editorial of mine! It’s entitled “To Snob or Not to Snob: An Exploration of the Metalhead’s Relationship With Gateway Bands”, and you can read it here!
It was seen by hundreds of people – most of whom I’ll probably never meet – who might’ve loved it, loathed it, scoffed at it, cried at the very sight of it, or most likely, couldn’t have given less of a shit.
Of course, since the checks don’t exactly pour in from an un-monetized blog by a nobody, I write about music because it’s my undying passion (and frankly, it helps me unload all those obsessive thoughts that would otherwise become neuroses). That being said, however, writing for a legitimately sizable audience is a whole other feeling. This first editorial for Metal Injection gave me a teeny tiny taste of what I work toward every day. To think that one of my dumb jokes could contribute positively (or negatively, I suppose) to someone else’s day is unfathomable. It’s inspiring, actually. At the moment, all I can think is I can’t wait to do MORE! More with this blog, more with my YouTube channel, and more for awesome outlets like Metal Injection!
Thank you so much for your support, and here’s to decades more of frenzied music talk!
