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.
