Now serving up daily blog posts…

Blogging with Madalyn Sklar
Hello friends. I’m back from my long, self-imposed hiatus from the blogging world. Did you miss me? There are several reasons for my departure and now return.

Reasons why I stopped daily blogging a few years back:

  1. I will admit, I found posting on Twitter to be so much easier. Who can resist 140 characters?
  2. When you’re a music biz coach & consultant, social networks expert (well that’s what everyone tells me) and the fearless leader at, there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
  3. I didn’t feel like a cool blogger anymore. As usual, I was one of the first in my field to venture into something cool and new. I signed up for Blogger in 2000 before most people ever heard the word BLOG. A few years back it lost its zest for me.

Reasons why I’m back baby!

  1. Because I’ve decided it’s cool to blog again. Yep, I have more to say than 140 characters.
  2. Even though I’m still a music biz coach & consultant, social networks expert (I’m telling ya, everyone calls me that so I’m going with it!) and the fearless leader at, I still want to make time to write in my blog every day. My goal this year is to do more fun stuff.
  3. I have a captive audience here. Over the years I’ve received some amazing emails from both musicians and music industry peeps telling me what an inspiration I am to them. If that isn’t reason to enough, then I just don’t know.

So here I am… ready to tell you what’s on my mind. And boy do I have lots to say. I’m not a long winded writer. I’m short, to the point, no fluff. That’s my style and I’m sticking to it. I write the way I talk. You’ll love it. I’ll admit upfront, I’m a geeky, dorky techie chick and wouldn’t want to be any other way!  I’m also into video blogging over at GoGirls so I plan to do that here too. I just love my iPhone 4 and the iMovie app. I can have an edited, uploaded video on YouTube in less than 10 minutes. I know, I’m cool like that. If you are eager to learn cool stuff from me, stick around and enjoy the ride. Be sure to sign up for my RSS feed. I promise it will be well worth it!

I want to give a HUGE shout out to my bud, Matthew Moran who is a WordPress expert. He helped me set this up and transition over from Blogger. If you need help with setting up or moving a blog, he’s your guy.

Let’s rock this out,
