13th of March Blog update

It’s been a while since I sat down to write this weekly blog/ vlog update and I wasn’t exhausted or rushing 😀 The move finally is starting to be behind us and the new place is starting to look nice, and in a strange way feel more like home than the old place did. Also I actually had more time to do all my creative work this week, and the results have been something I am looking quite proudly back on right now 🙂

But before we go any further, check out the new intro I did for the weekly blog update video and let me know what you think of it.

This week the lessons were most certainly harder to pick up on, as well… things were going much smoother. But there still were few lessons along the week.

  1. To be organised requires discipline, but the rewards are worth it.
  2. If a website claims to make a task easier and fails, the chances of me using it are slim. Lesson to keep in mind while working on my new website.
  3. Being a little bit ahead of the game, hugely lowers my stress levels 🙂

This week was definitely a productive week, an I am sure it comes across in this weeks vlogs 🙂 But first thing first this weeks song “Last night,” which you can download HERE, is up on my website. It talks about the importance of keeping a positive outlook in life. Check it out:

Last night

During last weekend we celebrated Des’s birthday and I spent most of the weekend building flat pack furniture:

With the new week I was delighted to be back writing music. I used the opportunity to talk about the importance of your surroundings, when it comes to songwriting:

As the moving house part was sorted, it was time to start setting up my new studio 🙂

And the setup took me long enough to spread it over two vlogs. Check out the last of it here:

In this vlog I have the studio functioning and I set out to record this weeks song “Last night.”

And as I was a little bit ahead of my vlogging schedule, I thought it would be only fare to explain to you guys how it all works at the moment:
