The first week of month two is over. I went to Florence for the bulk of this week, which was great. I’m sure that the experience will inspire future lyrics and songs, however during my time there I did very little in the way of music. I mainly just ate if I am being totally honest.

Here is how the week looked;

Summary:

It was really interesting to see how fundamental Adwords are to gain exposure on youtube. The thing I am really struggling to fix, is converting these views to engagement, comments, subscribers etc. I think I need to look at exploring different advertising methods concurrently to Adwords.
