Music Writing

My now-defunct music blog, Beat Beat Drums, was vehicle for finding and sharing great music. Even though it was just for fun (just like the blog I write now) it was a great chance to flex my creative writing muscles and get better at expressing intangible concepts in concrete terms — which turned out to be an essential skill whether you're writing about songs or SaaS products.
