I Sold My Soul to Rock n Roll

Hey folks, I'm now a rock writer!

Okay, here's the thing. It's for Examiner.com--I'm the Rochester, NY Indie Music Examiner. I know all about Examiner, and you've got to understand I'm not doing this gig for money (though there might be a little bit of cash involved). I'm doing it for two reasons:

  1. I totally dig indie rock.
  2. I'm trying desperately to break out of my tech writer thang and write about more mainstream stuff.
That doesn't mean I won't write about tech anymore--it's still my bread & butter. But I'd really like to be a more well-rounded writer, and this is a step toward that goal.

Please don't tell me Examiner horror stories. I've done my research and I know what I'm getting into. Some people swear by Examiner, others feel dirty and used after writing there. I'm on the fence right now, having only written one piece, but any excuse to write, write, write is a good one.

Be sure to check out my mini-review of Mike Doughty's new album and see where you can stream it all the way through for free. Try before you buy!

So there you have it. Thoughts?
