Music and work update

I've only written one of my songs on paper. I just don't like to write them down. I just remember how to play them.

There are lots of ways for musicians to get their music out there into the world. Last year, I kind of went through this phase where I posted songs to different websites, just to see what would happen. One of those websites was music supervisor. This is basically a big database where you can list your songs, and music supervisors or other people trying to find music for projects can go to, to find music. Then, they can download and license your music. I just got a report yesterday that one of my songs was downloaded 🙂 It wasn’t licensed yet that I know of, but I think this means that it must be in the running for something, so that is just very exciting to me 🙂

I keep my eyes open for projects that my songs might be able to be a part of, but I don’t do this as much as I used to. It’s not that I’ve given up…but other things just took over.

I’ve been working as a certified medical coder this passed year and I absolutely love it. (If you’re looking for an online program, I took online courses through Career Step and thought it was great).  Other than working and keeping up with the kids, I’ve been taking another online course for certified coders called Risk Adjustment Coding. Its  kind of hard to explain, but this is a type of coding for medicare. Medicare tries to project future costs for patients, so a risk adjustment coder is someone who is more like an auditor. They make sure all the diagnosis are in the medical records so medicare gets a clear picture and can estimate future costs. Anyway, that is all I’ve been up to. Thanks for reading this and thanks to those of you who listen to my songs 🙂

In case you’re wondering what song is in the running for a project, it’s this one.
