Monthly Report – May 2016

Summary of May 2016 –

Can’t believe I’ve been doing these 5 months now. The time has actually flown by and these are driving me to do more interesting things (the last monthly report got a few hundred hits on it in the first 24 hours… and the insecure side of me doesn’t want those people to think I am not interesting). 

I suppose the first (and most obvious) thing I did this month was rejig the layout of these. I am finding these easier to fill out and see what has been done (and what hasn’t). 

I did a bunch of tour dates this month as well as a record number of both gigs as well as paid gigs. I earned more money from this month from performing than I ever have done and I am pretty proud of that.
