Site Analytics 

A couple months ago, I switched to Google Analytics for traffic tracking. It's always a little fascinating to see my monthly traffic. To date, I've done zero marketing and placement for the site, and it seems most folks get here by directly typing JamesCurtisSmith.com into their browser nav bar. Fascinating. I'll be doing more dedicated marketing for the site next year. Still not entirely sold on the current platform. But, we'll see...

It Begins in Earnest... 

As 2017 came to a close, and the New Year rang in, I began receiving numerous inquiries regarding opportunities for live dates. As I fielded each inquiry, I had to begrudgingly admit that I was wholly unprepared to capitalize on them. I'd ignored my online presence for the better part of a year, and neither had I recorded any new songs or videos in that period of time. And so, it begins in earnest - the effort to resurrect my music-making. 

In the not-too-distant past, I had a respectable mob of loyal followers and supporters for my creative output. Even as my live shows dwindled to but two or three a year recently, I still had a small but loyal band of fans that kept track of my random and often last-minute appearances. Even today, I have a committed group that writes often, asking about new shows, new music - new ANYTHING. And, it's long past time I stopped disappointing them.

Knock-on-wood, things outside of music and writing have started to calm down. I've downsized my online presence to only this space, Facebook and Twitter. If you are one of that band of dedicated friends, fans and/or followers, I humbly and wholeheartedly THANK YOU for your continued encouragement and support! If you are a new visitor, I invite you to dig around the site, reach out to me on social media, and check back often for new music!

Cheers!
