I thought this day would never come. Work has gotten crazy, and things have slowed a bit here on Tight Mix, but I have somehow found the time to give a nice refresh to my e-book, “How to REALLY Get Your Music on Blogs.” The first version of my e-book was released back in June 2010, and had accumulated over 5,500 downloads since then. I humbly thank all of those who have pressed my shiny download buttons!
I’ve been meaning to write this article for a looonnggg time, and I am finally finding the time to get around to it. It really irks me whenever I hear somebody say they are dissatisfied with digital music. It doesn’t have to be some boring, robotic thing, people!
Despite what some industry folks may tell you, there are still tons of music fans out there that prefer the experience that a physical music item can provide. I am one of them. Believe it or not, there are ways that artists can bring some of the physical album experience to digital music. Some of it is common sense, and some of it takes a little “out of the box” thinking, but it is indeed possible.
After many months of bitching and moaning from music fans, the craze that has swept over Europe is finally crossing the Atlantic and coming to the United States. Spotify is poised and ready to rule the streaming music space worldwide. Launching in the U.S. is definitely a big victory for the company, and personally I cannot wait to give the service a try.
In an effort to stay afloat amongst it’s other cloud competitors, Amazon is running an offer that sounds very enticing to music junkies like myself. For users who sign up for a paid storage plan (the plans start at $20 a year for 20GB ), they will also receive unlimited storage for MP3 and AAC music files. This means that those files won’t count towards their storage cap, which is pretty awesome for people like me who have enormous music collections.
I have been hearing a lot of great things about this new music startup, and decided to give it a try yesterday morning. It’s the following morning at the time of writing this, and I’m officially hooked.
