A Little Question... Take 2

I'll try this again...

Many bloggers have music playing on their blogs. It's a nice personal touch that I've considered using. However, when I'm reading blogs, I find it really distracting. I know there are usually players somewhere on the blog that let you turn off the tunes. But, I normally don't care for it, especially if the blogger has posted a video to watch. Maybe I'm just being cranky and/or lazy. What do you think?


  1. Ok ... I'm back!!! And, I'm not a huge fan of music on blogs because it probably clashes with the music I have playing in the background. However, I suppose that if it had an easy on/off switch I wouldn't hate it.

  2. Thanks for reposting... that's 2 hours of my life I'll never have back! Whew!

  3. In most of the advice sites I've read, they strongly recommend against automatically playing music because it's rather invasive.

    Who knows if the reader is in a quiet place and not expecting noise? Quick hit of the back button is more likely than spending the time to figure out how to turn it off.

    Also yes, it can interfere with video watching, not to mention, what if they are listening to their own music already?

    Of course I LOVE music, and I like to hear what other people are in to, but I prefer a player that I can choose to turn on myself.

  4. I don't like the idea of playing music in my blog. If I tried to do that, I would have an epic soundtrack timed exactly to different phrases and words.

    Of course, it wouldn't work, because people read at different speeds, and that would just irritate the heck out of me trying to get it all perfect and it wouldn't have the same effect.
