The 2nd Most Important Ingredient in a “Classy Blog”

Can It Pass The TV, Brand & Authenticity Test?

First Published in 2013

Life is funny. You learn a lot just by challenging people to make art. To build something that

that either solves a problem or conveys an emotion. And then, share it. Suddenly, the joy's

gone. I haven't heard from a loved one who recently kept telling me she dreams about me

every day to which I smilingly responded, “Inspired? Blog it!” I can't tell you even I knew

exactly what I meant by that. But I can tell you that from a soulful place deep inside

in both my humanity as well as in spirituality, which is where the beautiful piece of

music (above) that you experienced originated, I want people to get out of their

comfort zones and create something truly authentic. Something emotional and

therefore unique. What others will think of it or how vulnerable such artistic

expression makes you is not the point. The point is the growth experience

& confidence you cultivate making something with love. Because here's

what nobody tells you, you who spend 2seconds and 2minutes to think

& troll cynical & negative thoughts in response to others' emotional

labor: “We work in the dark — we do what we can...give what

we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task.

And The rest”, says Henry James quite correctly and based

on experience, is the madness of art. Every so often, I

watch loud & obnoxious ones burn out; run out of ideas

& new, fragile artists to mock & piggy back. Here's

one secret to consistency whatever the odds and

however persistent the level of derision. Art's

not prostitution. “To labor in the arts, says

Steven Pressfield, for any reason other

than love is prostitution. I encourage

you to create something useful &

share it every day. It is useful if

it's something you'd be proud

of if put on TV. After class

the 2nd most important

ingredient is whether

it enriches mind &

soul. If so, then

EXCELLENCE IS YOUR

BRAND PROMISE &

Y O U R O C K!
