Post subject:  BTW, I don't publish everything here

Just downloaded a resource that promised to help readers become more professional in a certain area of music creativity, only to realize that it was a long advertisement for why I needed his paid services, including how to find someone who provides the service that he (coincidentally) offers, how to be ready for the service, how to treat the person providing the service, etc.

Thought you should know that when I plug something I get from CdBaby, Rick Barker, Dave Kusek or some other resource, I HAVE looked at it and decided there were good tips.

There is a lot of great free advice out there. The real problem is trying to figure out which advice to follow first. :-)

Have a great season, all,

Since I posted the note above (about four months ago), I've posted links to about 100 more pages, downloadable tip sheets and books and other worthwhile links in the other parts of this forum. Resources include learning how to use social media more effectively, how to put on more effective concerts, how to create more effective press kits - electronic and not, and much more. I've also avoided posting links to dozens of sites that advertise tips and information but are 99% advertising for paid products and services.

I TOTALLY understand the reason folks want to get paid for coaching and training etc. But I appreciate the folks who give you lots and lots of information FREE up front, so you can judge whether they really know what they're talking about. If you decide you like someone's presentation style and you think their paid services or content will meet your greatest current needs, by all means go for it. But this way you have a chance to see who really has something to offer. I don't LIST the posers, if that helps. :-)

Just got another post from someone claiming he has "the answer" to good songwriting, and includes about eight lines that were supposed to illustrate his unique skill set, all but one of which made me throw up a little in my mouth.

So, no, I'm not posting a link to his page. . . .
