Here in Week 46, 2020
So, here we are once again, at the time of the week when the various N1M charts are reviewed & reset overnight. Due to the extreme revisions of the 'Blink & Earn' system (you can't see the $BC amount in the offer), I was unable to build up enuf credits for an Artist Spotlight, so I will be relying on the Recommends for my promo strategy this time around. The difference with my offer is that the amount will be shown in the song description, via a careful edit. It will likely stay consistent overnight, as last week when I increased the amount from the steady 'thru-the-week' $3.21 to the then-suggested $20.01, N1M put & kept my revised offer in the "Pending for approval" state for over 7 hours, thereby pretty much obviating any exposure in Europe, despite my getting up 3 or 4 times in the middle of the night to try and find a good offer to fund my own promo. There has been no answer to my 3 emails of concern on the subject. N1M also still owes me over $150 BC from April 10th when instead of adding the nice Recommend offer credits to my carefully accrued balance of $99.99, they dropped it to $0.00. I wrote them about 10 times on that subject, no answer there either. 'I Come From the Future', the amazing Weber Brothers song I am privileged to cover in my acoustic arrangement, has a timely message you might think was written about 3 months ago, instead of the 3 years that has passed. My hope is that all of you stay safe & secure until this pandemic has been defeated, & we can all get back to performing live to our local fans & venues. Until then, let's remember there's More Love to Begin.
