Rethinking the Whole Music Blog Thing

I seriously envy my sister. She is in the arts like me, only as an illustrator, but she is far more gifted than I am in many other areas besides her chosen craft. The area I envy at the moment is writing. My sister’s art blog is witty, entertaining, sometimes deep, relevant to topic, and I love reading it: http://drawyoudrawme.wordpress.com/  I, on the other hand, have not that natural gift.  My best writing was the boring research and thesis papers I wrote in high school and college.

So now I wonder, and maybe my sister can give me some pointers, how do you have a cool, entertaining, successful, etc. music blog/website?  Do you post music all of the time?  Do you talk about music all of the time?  Do you relate it to life?  Do you do all of the above?  Am I too busy, or worse yet, too lazy, for all of that?  Should I just say whatever I want to and not care who cares?  Should I change visual themes a lot, not at all, or in between?  Do visual themes even matter if I’m talking about music?

Besides all those logistical questions, I’ve moved to a new music teaching facility, created a new email address, started a new semester with a new project (while still getting clips of the recordings together from last semester to share with you), and started writing a song with my band (whose numbers are now dwindling down to three, but are also now more serious about our musical endeavors).
