I’m Karyn, 21 years old, just finished my degree from the University of Auckland and about to start my first official job. And this is my blog 52 weeks | 52 songs.
I came up with the idea of this blog one lazy day. See, I have a number of friends who are very talented photographers. They had a project last year that they called “The 365 Project”. What they do is they upload one photo everyday on their blog, for a year. That made me kind of jealous that they could share their wonderful talent to the world. So I thought, “this year I’ll do my own 365 project!” Somehow, the thought of taking photos just didn’t excite me as much as singing. So I figured, why not use songs instead of photos? I ran this idea by a friend and she thought that it was great but maybe one song per day would be a tad on the unmanageable side. So I decided one song per week would be manageable for me, once I start work. Thus 52 Weeks | 52 Songs was born!
I just wanna say that, as much as I want to be, I am not a professional singer. I only sing for fun, and to express suppressed emotions. I’ll also only be using my laptop to record songs. The songs I’ll be singing will be covers of songs that have touched my heart and helped me in my life in more ways than one. There’ll also be a short blog entry after every song I upload, just to explain why I chose that song for the week. :)
There you have it folks! I wanna say thank you for taking an interest on my project and for joining me in this year’s adventure. Let’s hope it’ll be a good one!
