Are you on Facebook?

So, if you’re on Facebook, please take a moment to pop over and like my page – http://www.facebook.com/themusicjourno.  With the way that Facebook are changing all of the pages settings, it will be a miracle if anyone ever gets to see it, but I’ll keep posting and see what happens!

As you may know, I’m currently studying part-time to become a journalist, with a specialism in music.  To be honest, it’s a hard slog at present, as I’m doing so much reviewing; I’m finding that I don’t have the time to study and it’s becoming an ever more competitive field.  But I will get back into it – even if I don’t manage to make a career out of it, I love writing and I have met some fantastic people over the last eight months, most of whom have been really supportive.  The bands I have interviewed and reviewed have been tolerant and professional and I have tried to return the favour.  I’m finding that if you don’t ask, you don’t get – in fact, that’s my new motto!

A lot of people are saying that Facebook is on its last legs.  I’m not sure if I agree with that, I only know that I see the reach on my page dropping steadily, week after week.  I also have problems posting links to other pages and people and apparently now, if somebody likes your page but doesn’t have three separate activities (e.g., likes, shares etc.) within one calendar month, FB will remove your page from their likes.  I find that incredible, as when did it become acceptable for such a big brother approach to be tolerated?  Will people vote with their feet and leave FB in their droves?  Probably not …

Anyway, the whole point of this post is to say that, if you have time and you might be interested in accompanying me on my journey as I attempt to get qualified as a music journalist, then feel free to give me a like.  I don’t spam, although sometimes I do post a couple of things at once, especially if I’m busy with reviews.  It would be great to see you there …

I’m on a couple of other sites, if you might be interested.  In for a penny, in for a pound … !
