If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen I've been getting into BLIP.fm which is what I'd describe as a social music network - tho' the official strapline is 'Global Music Radar'. Anyway... 2 words of advice for you - GET IN!
It's absolutely brilliant fun and adds a whole new dimension to social networking. If I said BLIP.fm is 'Twitter for music', I'd be selling it short - not that it isn't 'Twitter for Music'... cos it is... in as much as you can send short messages with each blip and reblip etc and you can connect it to Twitter so your blipped track shows up as a short hyperlink in Twitter, but there's the added dimension of props which are a great idea. Go look at BLIP.fm
So as with all these networks, you need to let people know you're in there. BLIP offers a natty little blip player widgety thing. It's lovely - except 'tho it says it will shrink to fit the width of the column you stick it in - it doesn't - at least not on my blog. My columns are 200px wide, and once you take the spacing into account I've got just 170px to play with. I figure this is a common width setting (its standard for 99% of my clients) and so there must be plenty of others wanting a lovely looking BLIP.fm badge too. So... in the absence of any alternative I could find, I made one!
That's it up there ^... nothing too fancy... but pretty enough to catch your readers' eyes I hope. Just so you know; I've not asked BLIP for permission or anything, tho I will drop them a 'courtesy email' in a sec to let them know, and I can't see why they'd object, so if you like it - please do help yourself.
And then come give me Props or Favourite me on BLIP.fm or if you hate my taste in music - as if :) - then just follow me on Twitter instead.
See you in BLIP.fm for a big ol' nostalgia trip later...
