it's a tough one. first off, i wanna say I HATE digital reading. pixels become larger and larger as I try and focus on each word, and a paragraph seems like a book. So, even if people do write loads about music they like and have a link at the bottom, it is likely I will jump straight to the bottom (inevitably leaving me with about 15% of stuff I have, tracks I dont even like).
even though this is the kind of behaviour Resonator frowns upon, I see nothing wrong, with having a blog you have learnt to trust over time and just downloading what they post. In a way, you can hear their review in the music, because you "know them".
That said, I usually always read Conor's posts, long or not, as they are full of fabulous English that makes my cheeks red that I still spell 'doubt' wrong sometimes

Cheers Dekl.

I know what you mean about places you trust and all that, and sometimes you won't even have the time to read a whole long post.

I think the main point that I really liked about this article is the approach people take to writing about music on the internet. Write about it and post it up if you really love it or find it really interesting or whatever, and when you do post it up, try to explain to people what you really love about it or why you find it interesting - for me anyway, that's the bottom line.

I have immense trouble writing about music I love, mainly because I haven't really got a very individual style of writing, so I compensate by putting on a look of intense, almost orgasmic, emotion while I'm typing. It seems to make me feel better, can't speak about anyone else's viewpoint.

I just cant write very well, at all.
maybe if i drew pictures about the music.
