[Ethicophilia] Mp3 Blogging and Mixes: A Request For Your Thoughts

Posted in Talking by Soundslike on January 14, 2009

drum_bw1Recent events and a continuing uncertainty/curiosity have prompted me to do another talky post (the bulk of which I’ll hide behind the “more…” link).  I’m my own worst editor, so my aplogies in advance.   But I would really appreciate your participation in creating a discussion on the ethicality of mix-blogging, mp3-blogging, OOP-Only-versus-All-Music-Shared, the relationship between artists and listeners, and “who still pays for music”.  If you’re in a hurry, I’ll post a couple polls here first, and you can certainly leave it at that.  But if you have a minute, read on and then share your thoughts—even if they’re just “you’re a worrywort, get over yourself”.  My thanks, either way. (Polls, questions, and something like an essay after the “more…” link.)

Musicophilia Poll

Posted in Talking by Soundslike on December 3, 2008

Today is the two-month anniversary of Musicophilia, and in that time I’ve posted 15 mixes, had over 6,200 unique visits, 1,140+ downloads, and more than 50 comments.  All that exceeds anything I imagined.  It’s been a lot of fun, and I’ve got a whole lot of great stuff forthcoming, with hopes to expand the blog’s musical territory further and commence with guest-posts and post-trades with other blogs.  But before I go much further, I’d like to ask a few questions of Musicophilia’s visitors, to have a better sense for what you think and what you’d like to hear.  So if you have a moment, I’d appreciate feedback via the following polls very much.  Either way, thanks so much for listening!  (Polls after the “more…” link.) Update: Wow, a lot of responses already.  So my curiosity is further piqued, and I’ve added a few more questions, thinking maybe of interest to one another as much as to me.
