I added a new feature to the site which is part of some changes I am making to make the site ready to allow users to monetize their own content here. I have created a view counter which counts unique views (each user's view can only be counted once) for users logged into the site. This counter counts views every time a page is loaded with posts on it, for every post on the page. I will use these counters in the future to calculate how much to pay users who are posting content on the site and gaining viewership.
I created the song attached as a promotional track for my game, WordSquares. WordSquares has had a few players and been somewhat successful, but overall the song itself has been most popular. This has been a general trend I have noticed, the music tends to be more popular than my websites, apps, and games. This song is a unique meld of guitar, piano, drums, and more instruments which has an uplifting and relaxing feel to it. I hope it's an enjoyable listen. The song is called "Geometric Code" by Jasper Camber and comes from the single "Rainstorm". More music is sent to stores and soon to be released by Jasper Camber, and I intend to release music every month this year. I am writing music almost every day and I will continue to develop my style as I work more on my music.
Please enjoy this song I created last year which has been immensely popular on Spotify. The song is short and catchy and has over 500,000 Spotify streams. You can listen to it by pressing the play button below. I created this song by starting with a simple yet popular drum beat with drum samples I liked and then adding a piano crescendo followed by a synthesizer bassline. I added piano to this along with a drone played by another synthesizer, keeping the drumbeat going through the song. I closed the song with the piano chords. The album cover for this song is a picture I took of a plant at a place I used to stay. I hope you enjoy this short and enjoyable listen. There's a lot of content I have been meaning to share here and I am slowly getting it uploaded. You can certainly expect more posts here in the music topic, with previously released content as well as new unreleased content. I look forward to sharing my music with you here.
I put together a Spotify playlist with my most popular tracks so far ordered by what is currently popular. I hope you enjoy this playlist of unique and catchy electronic music. My most popular song, Exploring, along with 26 other songs, are getting hundreds to thousands of streams on Spotify every day. Please enjoy the playlist by clicking the link below. https://open.spotify.com…
Once again it is coming up on my payment runs from Ditto and RouteNote. I will be paid my Spotify royalties from my three profiles, Intersex, Jasper Camber and Jean Jasper. I had a lot of streams in the last week, and my weekly popularity is increasing. I am releasing more content every month and will continue to build my profiles with instrumental and vocal music. I'll post more about my payment run and let you know how much I make when it happens. I'm not sure when this will be yet, but it's usually around the first to second weekend of the month from Ditto, so I might be paid the 9th or 12th. I will be able to see my royalties on RouteNote on the 15th and they will be paid out by the 18th. Attached is a screenshot of my Spotify stream counts for Jasper Camber. This is my most popular profile, with over 100000 streams this week. I'm really excited to be in the music business because it's an opportunity to make money independently and do what I enjoy. It pays to work hard and invest in myself and I'm looking forward to where this takes me. There's an awesome future ahead.
I am releasing a song on April 15 called "Uglek" by Jasper Camber. It's a meld of instruments including piano, synthesizer, drums, and strings. I am moving down to Seattle on April 15 as well, and have been staying down here for the last few weeks. I'm excited to be more a part of the music scene here in Seattle, and busk sometimes to promote my music and work. I hope you enjoy this short and engaging instrumental, I have created many of these and it's fulfilling to see people are hearing them. I have had over 30,000 streams between my two profiles on Spotify today and yesterday, and my popularity is steadily growing. I plan to invest the money I make back in my career and establish a brand that I can use to promote shows, merchandise, and music. Spotify.com has been an awesome platform so far for keeping my art securely available and helping me make a profit from it. I will continue to make a profit from my music on Spotify and grow my fanbase as well as reach new listeners. I haven't been able to make it onto any Spotify playlists yet, but I am submitting songs to free playlists again so hopefully, they will make some money there. I'll post links to playlists with my songs on them here when I get some free placements. Enjoy my song. Thanks for reading.
I have added a suggested post preview feature to the website! Hopefully, it will be useful for seeing content you are interested in and finding the content you want to see again. The suggestions are random, three per page, and I did some work to make them relevant to the topic viewed and include them on various pages while excluding posts you already see on the page. These post previews show the 70 character page title, along with the meta description of the post, similar to a search engine. You can see them in the sidebar in the home, explore, topics and single post views. In the single posts, you will randomly either see posts from any topic or posts in the same topic of the post you are viewing (with a 50/50 chance). The suggested posts feature is live now, along with a few other features. I also added a share link feature which allows you to share links you view on the website, and made the selected page bold in the navbar. I really enjoy running a website because I can make so many unique changes and edit the code to have the site look exactly how I want with all the features I want. This has been an awesome experience so far. On a side note, I have noted that the captcha and email on the site is working very well, there haven't been any problems with spam as far as I can tell. The ReCaptcha integration works well with Django, protecting the entire site and keeping the forms secure. I knew this would take some time because Google isn't perfect and the ReCaptcha usually takes a while to adjust to new sites before it becomes more effective. Thankfully it is working well now. I hope you enjoy the new features on the site. Check back soon for more articles, photos and music.
This is a bear piggybank I created for storing my spare change. You can download it on my other website! I like to make 3D models in my spare time, and I have a large collection of pieces I have designed. I don't think there's really a market for most of my designs yet, but maybe one day I will create something useful people will be interested in.
