Amy Macdonald updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@amymacdonald) on Friday (November 21), discussing how she’s feeling “Christmassy”, the continued amazement over her album sales, and difficulties with the critics. The Scottish singer songwriter tells readers:
This has been such a long year for me. It’s been so successful and I’m so grateful for everything but it has been very hard as well.
I’ve given my absolute all, and it’s hard when people criticize you. I’ve done over 100 gigs this year and that doesn’t include any promo work. People are so quick to have a dig when they don’t have a clue. I’ve had a few cancelled gigs this year and had a few people send me messages telling me that I’m crap and that they aren’t a fan of my music anymore and it makes me so angry. But I know that these people aren’t proper fans and it makes me appreciate the real ones even more.
You guys are great. For every person who’s came to a gig or bought a CD I want you to know how much of an important part you have played in this year and I am extremely grateful.
