Music on Blogs

I've been meaning to write this post for some time...

It might just be me, but I'm sure it isn't. I absolutely CAN NOT STAND music on a blog. The first thing I do is frantically search for the pause button. It's never in the same place either. Unless your blog is absolutely great, I probably wont be back!! Google reader sort of eliminates the problem - but if I want to come leave a comment, I'm still going to have to listen to it.

A few reasons it's annoying...
*I usually have my sound all the way up from watching YouTube videos, So when I come i get BLASTED.
*50-75% of the time, I do NOT enjoy the same music as you. Please to not force your horrible music choices on me!
*Depending on the day, I hear a few words... then get the "buffering" notice... and hear a few more words.

The ONLY way its OK.
*If it does not automatically play upon me visiting.

Take the poll and tell me what you think!


  1. I voted.. but the choice I wanted to pick wasn't there...

    "I just turn down my sound" :)

  2. hehe, but i don't feel like I should HAVE too...(i'm too lazy for that - i'd rather be annoyed lol)

    ... hey it gives me something to blog about :)

  3. I'm with you -- except on MySpace. I have an autoplay of Elvis Costello's What's so Funny About Peace, Love, and Understanding.

  4. yes my space is Def. Different. (and there is an option for you to not automatically play peoples songs when u visit, which i love!)

    now if facebook had music for some reason i don't think i'd like it. lol and thy are pretty much the same! but i look at way more profiles on FB

  5. I do my blog reading at the office and/or during late at night when everyone is asleep. Having loud music will startle me and the rest of the people around me! I hate it!
