Getting Blogged About – Send A Stream And Download


This weekend I found myself nerding it up with many blogger friends. While discussing the pains of blogging, a few friends who write for music sites brought up an interesting point. Saying they are reluctant to download any promos  from bands, because it can take countless hours erasing all the crappy songs that you didn’t enjoy.  One friend said that if he has never heard of the band and there is not a link for a stream, there is little chance he will listen to it, since the last thing he wants is more hard drive clutter. I also find that if I am sent a stream I am much more likely to check it out very fast as opposed to waiting for a download. Give writers the option and your success with getting blogged and reviewed will increase.

    Not downloading because file management is such a bore? Wow.. I mean, I’m not saying your wrong, if this is how these guys behave then those who want their attention will just have to adapt, but these bloggers need to get a decent browser or download manager or something.
    Firefox automatically cleans up (deletes) your downloads after a day or so. In fact if you want to keep something you have to go and copy it elsewhere other than the default download directory.
    Kind of a bizarre non-problem if you ask me.
