After a few people told me to do it, my album I Don’t Know What I’m Doing is “Podsafe” now. You can find it here.

Complaint #1: there seems to be basically an unlimited number of sites for musicians to upload their music to and they rarely, if ever, allow you to specify URLs. You have to upload each song individually off your hard drive like a chump. I’d like a meta-submitting/uploading service. Like an automated street team. Or sites should make it less annoying. I have MP3s on my fast website with neatly labeled ID3 tags. Please take advantage of that.

My other complaint is that these sites all have blogging services with no option to syndicate your own blog from somewhere else. I’m not going to start blogging on Myspace or Podsafe or whatever. There’s no way. But if you were to syndicate my RSS feed, you’d have the illusion that I was participating and I would possibly build readers on your service (tying me to it, which is what you want) rather than just having a big empty blog there.

Wanted: FOAF + RSS + a media list, integrated into one XML file.

Man, totally agree on the uploading vs. linking.

Re: bloggig, just post a single blog entry pointing to your site here. That’s what I did with MySpace. Punish their ignorance by pulling traffic away from their site.

That’ll show ’em.

I think I did that on Myspace but there are a bunch of others where I didn’t bother.

If you’re a heavy Myspacer, odds are good you just want to read my blog in the context of Myspace. And I’m cool with that, they just don’t want to do it.

Some of the podcasts I’ve been played on because of the Podsafe Music Network are very strange. “Financial Aid Newscast” + Bjam Music = Um, ‘kay. And it’d be nice if everyone uses one system, and you could just point them towards a list of mp3s on your site. But, y’know, people have got to be difficult and make you upload them one at a time.

I apologize, but I used “Dirtbag” on a few of my early podcasts because I thought it was podsafe. Doug Kaye had reported that Magnatune’s John Buckman called non-commercial podcasting a safe haven for any of Magnatune’s music. Your music was available via Magnatune at the time, and I was really digging “Dirtbag” (still do).

Here’s my post on the subject (linking to the references I just made), from last October.

In any case, thanks for clarifying things!

aharden, no apology necessary. My music has always been fine to play on podcasts. I just finally jammed it into that particular Podsafe site. Doesn’t really change anything, but it puts me in an easily accessible directory.
