How I Got Started
I’ve always loved reading music reviews to find new music, but I often felt that the reviewers missed a lot of things about the music I loved because they were on a very tight schedule to get the reviews out on time for certain deadlines. With this blog, I want to share the music I absolutely adore, and I want to break it down and explain WHY I love it — I want to do more than just review music. I was definitely inspired by the format of the podcast Switched on Pop and how they prove that pop music is not as simple as it seems, and I hope to do the same with my favorite songs and artists of a variety of genres.
Advice to New Bloggers
- Be sure to add the “Read More” tag in each of your posts. It makes your home page a lot cleaner and more organized, which will encourage your readers to stick around and explore a little bit.
- There’s actually more to WordPress than you initially see; if you type in the name of your website and add “/wp-admin/” to the end, you get access to an abundance of extra features. (example.wordpress.com/wp-admin/)
