I Double Dog Dare You!

It's not easy to come up with useful blog posts...I'm thinkin' really hard people!

Yes…yes, I do.  I double dog dare you to help me make this blog even more useful.  I know I can always find things that are interesting to me…and will be informative to you (I still have some topics left on my list) , but is there some music, business, health or other thing for artists I haven’t covered that you want to know more about?
