While going through the blogs listed on the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day list, I was reminded of a very important thing.
Playlists are for iPods, personal computers, and the occasional mix tape/cd. They are not for unsuspecting visitors to your blog who may or may not be listening to their own music on Pandora or trying to watch Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Especially when said visitor also has nine other blogs open in different tabs because she’s trying to get through a major list of blogs giving away great stuff.
Seriously, kids. At least make the music optional. Don’t make it start the second your page loads, or I will click away as fast as I can. I will not add you to my RSS feed (even though my RSS feed doesn’t play the music), and I will not sign up for your giveaway. If that’s a chance you’re willing to take, by all means… But don’t say I didn’t warn you.
And yes, the same is true even if you happen to be playing music I adore.
