Another blip in the ocean



Have recently started using blip.fm, having seen the multitude of posts people were whizzing through twitter. For those not familiar with their blips and bobs Becky McMichael provides an excellent overview on her blog. At first I thought this was an awesome idea - being a big music fan (with varying degrees of taste) I thought it would be a great way of sharing music I like with friends I've already made through other networks like Twitter and Facebook...

Only problem is you can have too much of a good thing, and I agree with my old colleague Ben Matthews that the ability to automatically tweet every blip (if that makes any sense at all) I think there's a danger of really pissing people off, informing them of the fact you love that Punk infused Jazz Folk Track from 1987...

It's a great way of extending your self expression (horrible word again...sorry) and sharing stuff you like online but everything is good in moderation...Therefore I will do my best to go easy on the blips..perhaps a song every morning with my cup of coffee...although I hope everyone will be sharing their Karaoke Blips in the run up to Harvest Twestival on 25th September....please excuse the odd bit of Michael Bolton

Who would've thunk it - one of my dreams has come true!

Even managed to get a mention off 80s glam rock in with a link to this very blog!

anks for the link love boys. Why don't people just turn off the blips to twitter function? After all, most of us are capable of keeping two browsers open if we choose to. Or about 30 like I usually end up with...
