CD Baby Sent Me YOUR MONEY - Thank you!

Dear Friends,

I just wanted to say thank you for buying my music online!
I just received an email from CD Baby that they've sent me $207.03! On May 17th they sent me $146.09, and roughly every month it's been like, that - in the 3 figures, and once even over $300! This may not seem like a lot for some of you, but it's significant to me, because I'm re-figuring how to navigate the music commercial world and sell my works.
 Below is a copy of today's exciting email. I know some of you are geeky and curious like me, and enjoy reading how music download sales are billed, etc. (You'll notice most of it's coming from Spotify!)
 I'll continue to share my songs on The Facebooks, and The Twitters and The Blogspots. It seems to be making a dent ;)

(Scroll way down to see the lovely letter from CD Baby!)
