To play or not to play......



I wanted to find out how many of you play music on your blog. I for one, love music


and LOVE the selection i have playing in the background. I would say about 50% of the blogs


i visit have music playing, and some of the music selection is just downright not pleasant,


and some is just lovely that i want to keep coming back again.


I tend to pick tunes that are not in the "know" and are from


new or not heard of artists.


Soothing, enjoyable,breathable.


But, that's me.


I want to know what you think.


I'll tell you what turns me off is when i head to a blog and


AC/DC is playing, or if Bon Jovi is on (even though i love him),


the music makes the blog.


I know everybody has their "own" perception of what is nice on their


blog and what's not.


I want to take a little poll and find out what you think!

Take the poll on the right (since i don't know how to put it here).
OH, and don't forget to comment about what you like or dislike about music on blogs!!

I'll be interested to see what people think. I currently have quiet Christmas music playing on my blog, so hopefully people like it! I like your music and have found some cool artists from other people's playlists.

If it weren't for your blog, I wouldn't know Regina Spektor. I thank you for the great music on your blog. But I agree, I often hit the mute button quickly when I am on certain blogs. At other times, I minimize the blog while I'm doing something else just to keep listening.

I am not a lover of all music, and loud music is often a turn off.I want the music to be in the back ground, very soft. I usually mute the music on most blogs, even my daughters, especially hers.So I guess that would be a no vote.I hope you get the results you want, and if you want music on your blog why not, we can always turn it down.

I have found the greatest music via blogs, and you have incredible taste in music! :) Some music on blogs gets on my nerves or interferes with my reading, but I just mute it. I do think that "deep thinking" types of blogs do better with instrumental music. Finally, I think music on a blog speaks volumes (no pun intended) about the author, and it's a nice glimpse into bloggers' personalities.

Oh, I agree with all of the other posts so far. I had the same question on my own blog. I had it on there then had it on mute then put it back on. I just can't seem to decide! I happen to love blog music that is soft and does'nt startle you when it comes on but I do love to find new artists and agree that music choices say soo much about the blogger. I'm off to add a little holiday musak to mine;)

I often pull up your blog and after reading leave it up in the background just to listen to your music selections! I enjoy it so please keep it coming!

Erin said...

I vote for the music! I like yours very much - I have a couple of friends that just have my blog on at work so that they can listen to the music I play. Some blogs though do not play songs i like much but I just turn the volume down :)

I am a music snob...I don't like most music on blogs. That said, I love the music you play here...we have the same taste (it must be a birthday thing). Keep it! xo

MaryAnn said...

I have to tell you that I vivited your blog this week through a freind..and LOVED your music.
Plus yours loads instantly..
Unfortunately on some blogs.. the computer stalls for a long time then loads.Yours is instant.
I'd love to know all teh songs and artists:) Beau Blog too!!

traci said...

do i like blog music? most of the time, yes. if it's something i'm not fond of, i just turn the volume down. easy fix. i do like your blog music though. keep it on - it's a great mix!

littlebyrd said...

I agree - if I don't like it I just turn down the sound. I think each blog belongs to the person writing it and they should put up whatever they want. Keep yours going!

Tara said...

Morning! I have to agree with the comments above, I love the music on your blog and i am a huge music person, especially new artists! i think the music on people's blog shows just who they are, but I agree AC/DC at 6:00 Am is too much for me. But turning the volume down works, it wouldn't detour me from coming back!

Keep your music, love it!

Molly said...

Being a huge music lover, I personally say yes! And like everyone else, if it's not something I like or just don't feel like listening to I hit mute. Simple. I've always loved your music so please play on....XOXOO

What's next said...

I just found your blog and I usually keep my computer muted because I do not like the music on most blogs... but...I have left your's on and checked out the songs to see who they were by... very soothing and then found this post as I cruised your older posts because I was enjoying the music...
glad I found you.
