I've pondered different means by which I could grab the attention of my readers and bring in even more hits. I could do a series of interviews with musicians where I give voice to their deepest thoughts. I could do a thought provoking series about the state of the local music scene, both the progress that has been made and the work still do be done. I could even delve into the rich history of Dallas music, examining the glory days of Deep Ellum that started in the mid 90's. For that matter, I could research the Deep Ellum of the 1920's that gave us music from Robert Johnson and Blind Lemon Jefferson.
Or, I could just bribe everyone to read the blog.
Starting tomorrow and ending on Christmas day, I will give something away each and every day on the blog. Some days it may be something as small as an mp3 for everyone to download. Other days, it might be a CD or a gift certificate. You might even wind up with some cool concert tickets. The only way to find out what I'll be giving away is to check into the blog daily. For the actual giveaways (mp3s notwithstanding), read the instructions carefully, and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you could be the lucky winner! The only other rule I'm going to state is that you cannot win more than once during this period. Again, mp3s don't count. Obviously.
So keep checking in... you never know what treats you'll find on Ghost of Blind Lemon.
