It is my hope that many of you have ideas that you would like to share more than just here on the forum. I would like suggestions for blogs, blogs written by you for the whole world to see. Blogs that we can post under the blog menu for the site.

Your reward will be knowing that you shared something interesting about playing, learning, teaching, buying, dropping, fixing, hearing, loving, hating........ (this list goes on) the violin.  Another bonus is that if we post your blog you earn an Author badge. :) Hopefully there is a possibility to earn all the badges. :)

Thanks

Just fiddle related blogs? 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Hey @Fiddlerman , I've been considering starting a violin related blog for quite a long time. If my content would be of any help, I'd love to share whatever I have to share, as soon as I start doing so. :)

Skype: augustoad Email: augustoaguieiras@hotmail.com Phone number/whatsapp: +55 42 9861-4084. I'd be happy to talk anything fiddle-related to anyone! :)

I love writing and have been thinking of starting a "beginners journey" of the violin. not sure if its what your looking for exactly but thought i'd throw it out there. I know writing about what i'm learning for someone always keeps me motivated to improve and write more.

@rockinglr33 A cute idea, maybe it has been done already.  Would be a children's book. The Adventures of Berty.   Written in first person.  Berty is my 1930-40s violin. 

Here is a violin that really has a story to tell!! http://www.foxnews.com/opinion.....ic-violin/

"The Band That Played On: The Extraordinary Story of the 8 Musicians Who Went Down with the Titanic"

The Fiddlerman Traveller?

Violinist start date -  May 2013  

Fiddler start date - May 2014

FIDDLE- Gift from a dear friend. A 1930-40 german copy, of a french copy of a Stradivarius.  BOW - $50 carbon fiber. Strings - Dominants with E Pirastro Gold string.

Do you want us just to start a forum? or a blog and link it for you? 

 

Then you can decide weather or not to post it? just trying to figure out the basics for ya'll. This is exciting!

I would love to write some blog entries. I have to do small texts or full essays for college very often and once I wrote about the experience of playing violin and the virtual memory phenomenon caused by modern technology for a blog. It wouldn't have much interest in this context, I guess, but as soon I have something I'll contact you :)

Why would't that have much interest? Is it not so much related to the violin?

It focus mainly on the reproducibility of art and how we let the virtual memory (by filming and taking pictures) replace the real experience which I think the most ungrateful situation happens in the music field (I talk about my experience when I have performances.) If you want I can translate it since it's not too big and send it to you by PM :)

@ElisaDalViolin: Actually, your thoughts and experiences as a musician regarding the virtual memory phenomenon do sound interesting.  Maybe not as universally so as when someone gets a new violin, but definitely related to music and violin.

Thank you Daniel :)

I already sent the translated text to Fiddlerman. Maybe I'll modify it a bit more to update it since it was written 2 years ago.

Yeah, in 2 years, I would imagine you've seen even more instances of what you're talking about and have had time to think of further implications.

Hey @Fiddlerman , would vlogs also be a good thing to do? I like writing, but I'm a shy guy and the camera helps me fight that, and I was thinking about doing a vlog about something as well...
