So rather than let Marim throw up the next Song of the Day post today I'm going to give her a day break for Christmas. To be honest, Christmas crept up on me a bit this year. I did my shopping two days ago and now I realize why that's never a good idea. To me, Christmas is about spending time with family and being thankful. Personally speaking, I'll be going to church in the morning, spending time with family, and probably playing some new video games later (Steam's Holiday Sale runs until January 2nd). If you plan on listening to some Christmas music this year, check this out (you can also find it on iTunes). It's been a pretty decent year for RPS as a whole. Naturally the summer is less busy on this site as far as traffic and posts go, but around this time last year is when the whole posting every day when possible thing got started. As we continue to flood the site with more posts, we continue to gain more and more visitors, whether it be by google searches, or the plugs I've littered around sites I've visited. With this in mind, it's important that we make every post count going forward. Are we professionals in music? No. Are we professionals in writing? No. We have lives and jobs (or at least I do) and if we could make money this way there's a good chance we would quit our jobs and just do this. However, it's important to remember the power of individuals running non-profit ventures (such as OCR, which is the musical discovery I am most thankful for). I hate to make it sound like thanksgiving, but I think it's important to reflect on what we have and using it to the benefit of others. Anyway, Merry Christmas!
