Yes, that’s right, The Rooster is BACK!!!!! Oh yeah! We’re going to bring you one hell of a Soulful Christmas Party on Saturday Dec. 11th 6-10pm. It’s been way way too long, and we just can’t wait to come see you, play some new killer tracks and Ange has been dying to climb up on those tables to play her guitar solos. So come early to snag a table and come enjoy yourselves with us cause I promise you that this will be a Christmas Party for the books…

We’d like to offer our sincerest thanks to everyone who came out to join us for our last waltz at The Rainbow Bistro. That stage has been like a second home to us over the years and we feel so privileged to have had the chance to share this night with all of you! Thank you Stacy for inviting us to send off the Rainbow with a bang. It really was a rockin’, fun-filled night with special guests Nick Beaton and Fredy Carriere! We’d like to thank our Rainbow family for the countless shows, jams and late night blood, sweat and tears. Cheers guys!

Hey everyone! Just wanted to drop a quick line to say hello and hope everyone is well and safe! We’ve noticed a lot of people sharing songs from our Live at the Library performance! We love it and THANK YOU! Keep it up! We are itching to play live again…hopefully it’s becoming a possibility soon! Love Adam, Sandy and Angie!

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
