If I’m not mistaken, this is the fourth year in a row that I’ve posted a music video each day on Facebook during the month of (R)October. This year however, I did something a little different: Instead of choosing whatever video struck my fancy, I decided on a theme. This was the first time I’ve done this, and considering that Seattle is largely where I came of age musically, I chose videos by bands that I enjoyed during the the 22 years that I lived there, and indeed even a couple of bands that have entered into my consciousness since moving down to L.A. back in 2003.
This is a fun vanity project, however while I’m not sure if it’s due to the fact that Facebook is now throttling posts (hoping to extract money out of you by getting you to “promote” your post), or if it’s just that people aren’t as interested as a months worth of videos all falling loosely under a vague “theme,” but I have definitely noticed that I am getting waaay fewer “likes” and comments.
I think next year, I’ll just stay with the previous routine, and post whatever comes to mind that morning. Feel free to comment here however, and in the meantime, enjoy the rock!
