Back By Popular Demand: Asheville Social Media

Well I am posting another blog because you guys apparently read my last one (at least a few of you did) and by doing so you skyrocketed my stats page thereby leaving no place to go but down today since I hadn’t posted another blog.  So, I am posting a short blog to say “thanks” for checking out The Garage’s new blog.

It was really exciting to look at my stats and see the rise and fall of the graph chart.  You see yesterday, when I posted my “High-Lights in April” I had a record amount of readers!  Of course, the record to beat was two; however,  I surpassed that by more than seven times… now that is impressive!

SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORKING is not only interesting and informative, it is downright fun as we discovered last week when The Garage hosted the free: G Social Media School, with AskAsheville’s very own Gary!!  What a hoot!  I finally learned how to tweet effectively and learned some other extremely useful social media tips.

Special thanks to Justin Brackett (@justinthesouth); Jose Ibarra (@hOzae); and Trey Pennington (@treypennington) for “providing us some real good learning stuff!”  See them on Twitter!  Watch how these guys master the art of social media.

Also, stay tuned for G Social Media’s next free seminar on “Using Videos.”  This event will be held at the Grove Park Inn, 290 Macon Ave Asheville, NC on April 23rd from 5pm – 7:30pm.  For more information contact:

Asheville Music Scene

Welcome one and all, although its probably closer to one than all since nobody out there is reading my blog.  This is the first time that I am writing a blog and it is more or less for the purpose of discussing things to do with The Garage at Biltmore in Asheville North Carolina.
We are a music venue with all kinds of interesting music events that happen here.  From the traditional local, regional, and national bands of all genres; to super psychedelic full moon gatherings and trance parties; to all ages events that mind our p’s and q’s for the sake of the youngsters having a place to celebrate music.

If you live in Asheville, or if you’re visiting, see our website for shows and times.

So there, we are formally introduced: me to you and you to me.  I have to say it is rather strange writing to an imagined audience that I know only consists of me, but perhaps that will change.

Look forward to seeing you and I will be writing again real soon to post more informative stuff.
