Comparing my blog to other music blogs, I would say we all do relatively the same thing. Some blogs are specific to a type of genre or artist but regardless, each blog usually takes a song or album and reviews it, explaining what they like about it. Although there are so many music blogs out there, people really become loyal to the ones they frequent even if it is so similar to someone else’s. I would like to be the blog someone is loyal to, wanting to hear my reviews and my interest in songs. It would be amazing to inspire someone to listen to a different genre or artist and fall in love with it like I did.
In theory, my blog would be about different bands and artists and music genres for my viewers to try out, but I haven’t posted much on that instead using my blog mainly for my class assignments. This is something I would like to change so I can stay relevant with the other music blogs on the web. I think what’s unique about my blog is that I’m not only reviewing music, but allowing my viewers to check out artists across different eras and genres that they wouldn’t necessarily listen to on their own. I am able to provide them with a little background on the artist or song or even a personal reason as to why I enjoy it so maybe they’ll feel more inclined or intrigued to listen.
Many of the “non-mainstream” artists I have discovered have been through blogs so I want to be able to share that experience with everyone!
