61 Songwriters across Canada have signed on to take part in the Canadian Songwriters Social Media Challenge otherwise known as “the Blogging Challenge,” as outlined in Ariel Hyatt‘s book, “Music Success in 9 Weeks.”  How many of us will make it to the finish line?

In last night’s launch conference call with Ariel Hyatt, some participants asked, “What can I expect to get out of this?”  The cool thing about this challenge is that you define your own goals.  Hence some songwriters may be focused on publishing, while others are more focused on lining up gigs.  Whatever your goals, I believe what you put into the challenge is what you will get out of it.  Former challenge participant, Meghan Morrison reflected that she had gotten a lot of intangible benefits from participating in the challenge twice before.  Namely, a better understanding of who she was as an artist and what she wanted to achieve.

The Songwriters Association of Canada is excited to be championing the first ever Canadian challenge and looks forward to the momentum it will create for participants.  We are also thankful to our sponsors: Ariel Publicity, Bandzoogle and Reverbnation.

So, here we go with week 1.  All participants, please post the following below:

1-Your artist name.
2-The URL to your first blog entry
3-The URL to your website
4-Your Twitter handler (if you have one), and
5- your Facebook URL (if you have one)
