AJB Blog

What to Expect posted at: 23/10/09 @ 02:10 | « back to main

So I will be posting blogs on this site very often. I just feel like writing a little right now about where AJB is and where it is going.
The social networking dynamic has changed quite a bit since we launched. Myspace is still the best place for an artist like myself to find a fanbase, but the world in a lot of ways has moved on from myspace. NPR has an article on their website that refers to myspace as a place "where brown people go."
For some strange reason, the mainstream media acts as if myspace is bad, yet constantly pushes facebook and twitter. The two where you cannot really make new social network connections?????
The industry that used to laugh at me when I would have meetings about the importance of it went and basically bought it out, making myspace a bit uncool by default.
That mixed with the sudden and somewhat paid for/fabricated impact of facebook and twitter have diluted the way in which we actually do socially network.
People by and large no longer look to meet new people, only get in touch with people they know and really only talk about what they had for lunch....that or stalking celebrities and the need to know exactly what they are doing at every moment of the day.
At one point myspace was so unbelievably cool because there really was this little window for independent artists like myself to really do something groundbreaking. For a moment in time, a good amount of people were more interested in finding out about real independent artists over the mainstream. It really really was awesome.
There is no way that my albums and clothing line would be in the hands of people in 26 countries. Yes 26. A pretty remarkable accomplishment. It really gave me the opportunity to start and build my business with no money behind it or without a corporation behind it. It has let me stay honest.
The difference now is that it is more spread out over more networks and from time to time people think that I am part of that corporate system. I am not. There is a very very small amount of people that are involved with AJB. We multitask and do way more than is expected. Because of that we are making great things happen. I love it. I love the way AJB works and everything that has unfolded.
Having people interested in what I do is so special and I am grateful for the fanbase that I have been able to build.
There are many new exciting things happening. A lot of great opportunities and projects and people that are coming together to do great things. So for anyone that is paying attention. Thank you
I appreciate it!!!
AJB
