I am too busy to keep up with myself, but I thought I would drop a line to tell you all about an exciting opportunity that I have been keeping under wraps: I am a GRAMMY.com Community Blogger for the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards! For the last few months (while in LA) I have been visiting with the fine folks over at the Recording Academy, learning about the digital campaigns they have planned for this year’s GRAMMY awards. The Recording Academy has tapped a handful of awesome music bloggers to write about their subject of expertise for GRAMMY.com. While I am not a music blogger (though I blog about music occasionally), I have been designated as a Blogger At Large, which means I will be covering the larger topics of social media, digital strategy and new media as they apply to the GRAMMYs.
Sooo….what does all of this mean, exactly? Well, I’ll be contributing original content to GRAMMY.com, and I’ll be attending and covering select GRAMMY events, especially the ceremony on Sunday, January 31. I have to say I am both honored and excited about this opportunity! Not only do I get a chance to nerd out on all the digital stuff the Recording Academy has going on, but I will finally get to meet some of my favorite music bloggers, who are also apart of the Community Blogging program. It’s a 2-for-1!
Anyway, expect to see a few posts here about the GRAMMYs, and be on the lookout for my original pieces on the GRAMMY.com Blogs section. I’ll be back in LA on Saturday prepping and getting ready to be in full-swing GRAMMY mode. If you’ll be going to any GRAMMY events, give me a heads up so we can connect!
