  1. I love your top ten reasons for being indie. It’s such a freeing thing and you’ve really nailed the reasons I’ve come to love it. Nice blog you have here, too. WRITE ON!

  2. I love this list! I found your blog through your interview on Trish Marie Dawson’s site (which was a very cool interview – I like your response to what you’d do if you woke up rich tomorrow!). This list is exactly the reasons I want to go the self-pub route. The control-over-your-own-life thing… oh so motivating!

  3. Enjoyed the post. My favorite is #6 – I never realized how wonderful and creative it would be to work with a cover artist. When they “get” your vision – it’s heady stuff! All 10 are why Indies Rock!
