Well friends, it's official. We have been listening, learning, and loving together for an entire year. Happy Anniversary to us!
You can listen to today's song here: My Funny Valentine
A lot has changed for me since I first started this blog. First, I graduated high school and started a new journey at Purdue University. While being at Purdue, I have not only gained knowledge, but readers, and for that I am extremely thankful. I have had over 1,300 individual readers in exactly one year. That is quite an accomplishment in my eyes! Thank you all so much for your interest! Second, my family moved across the country to Texas, which has been quite an adjustment. Then, I had a very difficult dorm experience with my roommate when I got to Purdue, which may have inspired a couple angry/emotional playlists.
The blog has also been through a few changes! First, I had added a "spotlight" section, which admittedly went very poorly. Wah Wah! In June the website got a much needed facelift! I brightened up the look and made the layout much more enjoyable to browse. More recently, I added a Song Of The Day segment, which I believe has been going very well (considering that you're on the page right now) but correct me if I'm wrong and you hate it. I am very accepting of any and all feedback!
I am so very excited to start year two with all of you! I am looking forward to many more beautiful & bumpin' playlists, hopefully with some suggested by you! Let me know what you'd like to see in the upcoming year in the comments below!
Today's song is My Funny Valentine by Frank Sinatra. Sinatra put out this beautiful tune in 1954. He is arguably one of the most important artists of the 20th Century. Sinatra's career lasted almost 60 years and he kept his popularity the entire time. He was incredible when it came to changing his music to fit "the times" and for that I applaud him. Not many artists are willing to change their sound in fear of losing their audience, but Frank was willing to take chances.
I hope you have a day filled with love and music. Happy Valentine's Day, friends.
