Your Year in Music By The Numbers
I’m not a huge analyst of numbers. I think it’s important to keep perspective and keep making things rather than measuring every reaction to every post or release you make. Stepping back and looking at the overall response will tell you more than over-analyzing every transaction.
That said, I think it’s really helpful at the end of the year to look at what you made and how it performed. Hopefully, it gives you perspective as an artist and creative person. Even if the stuff you made isn’t making you rich, it can be reassuring to look at it and think, “Look at all the stuff I made!” It lets you know you are creative no matter what the reaction of the public.
