| Today on my main page, JayBeacham.com, there was a visitor from the Czech Republic who went to a post I’d done back in April of 2009 on the old MySpace. I’m glad that I reposted it in it’s entirety, as My Space deleted everyone’s accounts earlier this year.
It was about singing and so I want to repost it and let you readers think about the points I raised then.
“Last year in July, I started on the karaoke available here on My Space.
I did the ten free songs. One I re-did. I’ve gotten some nice compliments and some more critical too. But as I wrote on July 11, 08, this is for fun not to try to impress anyone. I’ll probably pay for a year when I can afford to and try some more.
I made several points and this was basically just telling about what I’d been doing in the area of singing but the points about rude judges and rude audiences in singing, rodeo or whatever are worth your consideration. Those judges and audiences ought to be chastised and should be made to try the feat themselves before being critical of those who do try. Those who try should be applauded for their courage and willingness to try difficult tasks before an audience.
What do you think?
Catch you next time.
There are on line karaoke sites and I think they are the best social sites.
Let me explain with some old blog posts.
I have noticed that with the changes on facebook, that unless I go to somebody’s wall, I seldom know what they are up to because FB decides what it thinks I should know or not know. I couldn’t connect with the guy I sit by in a men’s chorus I’m in or even with my own younger brother because all knowing FB said I didn’t know them. Finally did get my brother on the list. And about the posts, you are so right. On My Lincoln FB page the current month’s posts are only listed as one line notifications. Which is distressing. On Squidoo they closed my popular “A Healthy Me” page as I told you once before and now have locked another one saying it has to many out links. I couldn’t edit it for a long while and when I did and only put in One link to one spot but several times it has been locked. I’m not even sure that real people ever review these things or robots.On Linkedin, a person must know someone’s email address before they can send a message or connect sometimes. How often do you ask a person for their email address when you talk to them? And if you haven’t seen that person since high school, college, a mission or childhood, how are you supposed to know their email address which people change like they change their socks.I wrote a blog post on my main page about social sites ( http://jaybeacham.com/2012/02/06/is-there-a-best-social-network/) that post links to a longer post at:http://www.myspace.com/177349516/blog/545268093That explains my thoughts on the subject.Its long. At the end I mention a sing site I participate in. A member in Alabama has paid my way for a year and a half. A member in Florida talks to me on occasion on the phone and has bought dvds and cds from me. A member in Norway wrote today and asked for my prayers in her behalf with the surgeries she is having. When a friend in Brazil had a birthday, members world wide gave her a surprise birthday celebration.All on line of course. Most of my fans and singing partners and favorite singers are from Australia to Finland, Malta to California, Brazil to Canada. It is truly a friendship place unlike the sterile rule bound FB.You are right about Twitter. The more one follows, the more posts, that would take 24/7 watching to catch even a portion of it let alone anything what might be of interest to me.I’ll pass Real Fame on. It has great merit. Thanks,And please let me know what you think about my little article.Jay Beacham http://jaybeacham.com/ .
I have been on My Space the longest.
