Time for another blogging parody!
I was inspired to write this particular song after having my Guest Speaker application rejected by a blogging conference I had previously attended as a panelist.
It made me realize that while I enjoyed writing and had a small yet loyal following, I was a virtual nobody in the blogging landscape after nearly three years. Ultimately, it was a good thing because it caused me to reflect on all the obsession, stress, and pressure I had placed upon myself to become a popular blogger. Constantly chasing numbers, feeling slighted over opportunities, watching analytics like a hawk, and feeling the sting of reality when none of my goals came to fruition.
I think bloggers everywhere will at least see a little piece of themselves in this song, but it’s primarily written to poke fun at the initial aspirations people have when starting a blog. While totally written in jest, the words certainly ring true in my case.
After writing these lyrics to Nickelback’s “Rock Star” I sought out a vocalist and was SO fortunate to find Suzi Lindner. She not only provided amazing vocals but she also did a fantastic job playing the song on acoustic guitar.
With that, I hope you enjoy! And if you do, I hope you share this post with others!
‘Cuz after all…
I still wanna be a blog star.
