Every Friday on this blog is “Makin’ it Happen Friday”, where I feature another musician who’s found a way to make a living playing music. I am constantly inspired by others, and hope to pass that inspiration on to you.
I “met” Elli Fordyce on Twitter, which is where I seem to meet all my friends these days (maybe I should get out more!). It was right around the time that her new CD “Songs Spun of Gold” was released and I was very impressed with how she was marketing herself, getting the word out, and getting others to talk about her. She has built a network of extremely passionate and dedicated fans who are helping her in the way all Web 2.0 musicians hope for. Perhaps it’s because this is the second time around for Elli, and at 72 she’s definitely learned a thing or two.
