Locked Myself Out

Blogalogin, News | May 13th, 2020

When you go a long time neglecting something, life happens. I realize my last blog post in here was in 2015. I joined Patreon at the start of this year, and have been keeping up with the blog steady at least once a week on it. It’s a pretty nifty little platform, like an ongoing crowdfund where your Patrons subscribe to your content on a monthly basis, giving you freedom to continue your art, and if you have enough Patrons, you can just stay creating without going after a normal 9-5, and only being accountable directly to your supporters.

New Website Upgrades!

Blogalogin, News | August 29th, 2013

The website should be much easier for everyone to navigate now, I know it is for me. The credit for that goes out to my good friend and fellow musician, Chris Seth Jackson, who also runs a website called How To Run A Band. An awesome site filled with experiments Seth has tried out in bands he’s been in, as well as interviews, podcasts and more that all aim at helping you to do better in the music business…because yes, this is a business. I think I first bought my web domain almost 3 years ago and it took me… Continue Reading →

Being Pro-Active

Blogalogin | April 19th, 2012

Lots of things have been buzzing here around Hotel Baker. Coming home from tour is usually a real pain in the ass for me, and it’s more than just putting the breaks on after being go-go-go on the road. I hated the stagnant state my home was in. We have almost everything we need to finish the living room remodel we started over 3 years ago, multiple bikes in the garage that need to be road ready, and not just the 2 that Dan owns, an old ’67 Ford Ranch Wagon that was rusting in front of the house, and… Continue Reading →

FedEx Office aka The Bane of My Existence

Blogalogin | April 17th, 2012

I enjoy the crisp, clean sound of the roller-cutter. Aside from that, the trip to FedEx Office is always one of the most anxiety inducing stops for me when I’m out running errands. I always know what to expect the moment I park my truck; one person is going to sound overly happy and wish me a wonderful day, while everyone else is going to stare me down in a way that makes me feel like they’re waiting for me to steal something, at least two of the employees will be downright rude for no apparent reason, and even if… Continue Reading →

Oh Bloggy Blog…

Blogalogin | April 15th, 2012

So it’s been hard finding motivation to type up a new blog after completely reformatting my site by accident. Part of it is because I’m not done adding pages and editing the site, so I really don’t want to put any time and effort into typing up my thoughts in case I hit a wrong button again. On the other hand, if I hit the wrong button again, all the work I’ve done on the pages would also be lost again, so any way I look at it, any time spent since the first wipe out is still time that… Continue Reading →
