From Zero to 15’000 – Some Thoughts on Building Community…

= Love

A wonderful post about Community from James Radcliffe, talking from the heart and soul just like his beautiful music! I wanted to share this because I can relate with it and because it is very motivational and inspiring!

Have a great Sunday!

One of the most frequent things I get asked is: ‘How did you build your following?’.

It’s a fair question.  A few years ago I started as everybody does, with pretty much zero support and 5 followers (2 of which were my mother who had signed up twice to make sure she didn’t miss anything).

Today I am a 100% audience-supported artist; I have a blog that is read in 170+ countries by a community of over 15’000 subscribers, and a Twitter following that is sitting somewhere around 66k.

How did this happen?

Read on, and I’ll tell you…

Music – EWIAN “The Last Poem”

This is another beautiful video and stunning song from EWIAN
the song “The Last Poem” is a sad story with beautiful touching words and dreamy music…

“You have lost your smile
You have lost your will to fight
a very long time ago
A very long time ago
The story in your eyes needs to be unfold
so that i can touch your grief, and make it faint…”

Album: Good Old Underground 2014

Success Inspirers' World

YesterdayAfter is a blog I would love to invite you to visit and meet the brain behind it. I will tell you why.

The web space in question is a unique environment through which the author wishes to “touch your soul with our One-of-a kind creations” and to let her creativity “inspire you in your daily life.”

The brain behind YesterdayAfter is a radiant soul, Carolina Russo; and if you ask me who she is, I have no difficulty telling you.

Carolina’s gleaming beauty is the first attraction that hits your vision when you visit her site and read her ‘About page’. But far beyond that sweet face is a tender loving heart.

Ask me how I know this. I have trailed Carolina’s language journey on her site, my site and other sites and I find no thread of doubt in my mind that the shiny smile on her face…

quill


Jennifer Calvert
 is the wonderful writer behind Ink and Quill  she had a lovely and thoughtful idea, wanted to support the work of her fellow blogger with great appreciation sharing Poetry.  Few days ago she posted Share a Poem on Ink and Quill  having an enormous response.

The post was an invitation from Jennifer saying to “share a link here of your favourite poem/s, which you have written or a poem written by a fellow poet. Or both!

I did participate and left the link of one of my Poems. Today she reblogged  my Poem “Emotions”  with precious and beautiful words she honoured me and many others.

Carolina from Yesterday After, words flow and warm my soul, ‘floating like cluster clouds in a sky of darkness and light.’ ❤️

Emotions

emotions chained
to words untold
floating like cluster clouds
in a sky of darkness and light

the storm was approaching
lighting were striking the heart
like stones breaking glasses

like in a lost dance over fire
following the song of my thoughts
holding a flower to protect

a desperate search for
a peaceful and silent shelter to rest

pieces of me were left there
in the dark with a white flower to hold
looking for a raising sun…

Photography – A Stunning Element

Wiltern_Ceiling

 

Los Angeles – The Wiltern Theatre

a beautiful 1930 Art Deco’ architecture considered one of the finest examples in United States, salvaged and restored from neglect and decay it is a symbol of history and Art preservation for the City of Los Angeles. The theatre is located inside the green-turquoise  Pellissier Building you can read more about the interesting history here.

My photo  shows details of the stunning and dramatic element featured on the ceiling overlooking the box-office at the entrance. I love the angle I was able to capture and the lighting in contrast with the dark shade creating a beautiful effect of “chiaroscuro” it seems almost a monochrome. I love this photo and I hope you do to!

In June 2015  I had the privilege to attend a great concert in this beautiful venue, you can read my post “A Magical Evening of Guitars”. It was a wonderful experience for me as an artist to see the beauty of this historical theatre. The more I was looking around the more I felt I was back in time. As soon I walked inside the magnificent decorated oval-shaped lobby, I was imagining how many shows have been hosted in such great place during the 1930s and 40s until our days, all the amazing artists that have performed there. I could visualize all the people walking around the lobby wearing their fancy hats and fashionable outfits of that era.  The ceilings inside are amazing and all decorated with beautiful elements, over the walls there are shapes of beautiful flowers artistically painted. One of the most striking element of the interior design is a huge sunburst placed on the ceiling of the auditorium,  each ray is created as its own Art Deco skyscraper. I was there attending a modern Rock Concert having the feeling to be in an old-fashioned historical venue, where I was back in time and into the modern era at the same time, it was amazing! I felt a great vibe. My native country is Italy, I grow up surrounded by the most amazing Art and architecture  hundred and hundred of years of Art history are still alive throughout the magnificent buildings, sculptures, paintings on almost every city in Italy because it is very important to preserve and salvage our Art. I am glad that The Wiltern Theatre is an example of preservation here in US and for sure it is a place to visit in Los Angeles if you interested in Art and Architecture and nonetheless a great vibe-filled and intimate venue for great concerts.

I hope that you enjoyed my photography and this post!
There is any special Art-preserved place in your city?
Feel free to talk about it in the comments!

Thank you for sharing 😉

A pen is tracing words

writing is liberating a trace
