Busking is awesome, let me tell you why

About a year ago, I started busking. In fact, I need to renew my license this month! Although I had a bit of a rocky start, I adore busking now. It gets me out of the house, playing music I love. Sometimes I meet nice people and make a bit of money on the side as well. What’s not to love?

I could elaborate for you. In fact, that’s what I did in a post I wrote last year for Offbeat Home & Life (incidentally, one of my favourite blogs that you should totally check out):

I’m not here to give you busking tips; I haven’t got nearly enough experience for that yet. No, I just want to explain to you why busking is AWESOME, and why you should consider doing it if you play an instrument (or have other performance skills).

Curious yet? Then go and read the rest of the post, entitled Why you should try busking; Yes, even you! over at Offbeat Home & Life. And do share your thoughts, either at OBHL or right here. What do you think about buskers? Would you ever consider busking yourself?
