It appears that a dedicated website is a thing of the past for the Independent Musician.
Blogs are the thing now. As I understand it you can set up a blog just like a traditional website but without all the $$$ design and implementation fees normally associated with it.
Exactly how true this less $$$ theory is has yet to be tested by yours truly. At the present time I have only managed to set up this little blog here via Google Blogger.
I know this may seem taboo but I also have a WordPress account set up and I have been told that it is a much more media friendly system as well as offering a dedicated (somewhat) domain.
My interest is to make audio files available for download (Free and fee). It is the implementation of this that I need to really get into...and I am only hurting myself by not pursuing it ASAP!
I will make most of my noise available for free but there will be some choice audio items that I feel compelled to make a few pennies on. My general rule is that anything with a sample I have not paid for is free to whomever desires it...and I encourage DJ's to play these out.
You can find some of them on my dreaded Myspace page here.
If you have trouble downloading any of the free stuff please send me a message on the Myspace or leave a comment here and I will correspond until we get that noise into your dirty little hard drive!
Alright; I need to get some audio on a blog soon! I also need to figure out how to set up a shopping cart on one of these blogs...DAMMIT! I hate charging money...and I hate not knowing how to do all this shyte on my own!
Sorry, little venting there. Excuse me.
