Over the years I have profiled bloggers from the Northwest Territories to the Fraser Valley, anyone that interests me and that I hope will interest you as well. A few years ago I started asking a standard set of questions and I’ve sent these out to a few local bloggers for this week’s series. Click, share, explore, and enjoy.

How long has your blog been around?
I’ve been blogging on Thorny Bleeder since I launched the site in December 2008.

What is your role/involvement (developer, owner, blogger etc.)
I’ve done everything on the site myself. From web development to design to personally creating all of the content, including over 700 blog posts and over 250 podcasts.

What does your site do/what is it about
Music Marketing, Branding & Motivation.

What can people see, read, and do when visiting your site?
The Thorny Bleeder website is aimed at musicians who are looking for advice on social media, marketing and artist development, while staying inspired and motivated in pursuit of their creative dreams. I offer daily blogs and publish 7 new podcasts each week offering in depth advice from someone who’s been in the music industry for twenty years.

Why do you blog?
I want to help people pursue their passions, chase their dreams and realize their full potential.

What is the ultimate goal for your site, how would you like to see it grow?
My ultimate goal for the website is for Thorny Bleeder to be recognized as the go-to place for no-“BS” music marketing and artist development advice. I want to educate, inspire and motivate people. My only goal is to reach and help as many people as possible.
