Is there any pay!!! Just kidding. But seriously, I'm wondering how you and the misses get paid to have all that fun, I mean work, travelling the world, listening to music after music.

This sounds like a pretty easy gig. Make a post once a week = I can do that.

It would be nice to get a community going in Chicago, since there are so many songwriters in this town, but it is hard to get a discussion generated here. I tried a few times to rally people on this board with only marginal responses, but if you wish to go for it, I will help support you.

Actually I didn't hear from the founder & felt the job may have been taken. Then I bought a house, fixed it up a bit, rented it out & decided to move 2 hours south of Chicago into the same town where I have another house. Now I'm an hour north of both USI & U of I - musical communities as well as Chicago.

I miss attending some Chicago functions. Like the 12th Annual Short Comedy Festival is coming up. I highly recommend that one. It's good for a laugh & all local filmmakers.

The thing about trying to get anybody's attention these days - is time. Everyone says they're so busy & they are. Unless you've got a clique of people wanting to meet, it's hard to start one from scratch, but not impossible. You've got to have a lot of "desire" to do it.

As I've started a blog at my own company website (which is about to undergo a whole different direction), I could easily come over here & paste the same thing under the Chicago Area board. The Music News might be something to start a thread of those wanting to talk music. I've got a Songs2Share Chicago MySpace site where I've been keeping an eye on the local talent.

You have to ask yourself - what can I give yes, but also, what do I get back? & is it worth my time.

Back when the kids were young, I worked for the University of Illinois Extension Service as a part time 4-H Community Worker. My main job was to increase 4-H Enrollment. The 4-H program is made up of VOLUNTEERS. We'd joke about how we had to work with & depend on volunteers for many of our events by saying things like - "She wants to be a volunteer, give her a kiss" or -"She wants to volunteer, great, get her to sign..." or things like that.

I gave up that job after my daughter was born & became a 10 year 4-H Volunteer Leader. That and a 3 year Room Mother, Brownie Co-Leader (just one year &I babysat the leader's 3 kids while her & hubby went to Amway weekend conventions) & I babysat Abigail full time & worked at the food panty & unwed mother's group at church.

To this day I have great respect for the volunteer. I joked with my partner that I miss spending volunteer hours. He told me that my work at Songs2Share.com is volunteer. I laughed.

Just checked out the S2S website, found it interesting. Do they work with lyricists seeking music collaborators?
