Why I Hate Music on Blogs

March 9th, 2008

A couple of my friends who have blogs that I read regularly have them set up to play music. I won’t name anybody…you know who you are. I hate encountering music when I’m reading blogs for a couple reasons.

1. I am almost always listening to music while I’m on line. When your music starts to play it, of course, clashes with what I’m already listening to. I enjoy learning what my friends are listening to…but I don’t want it washing over what I’m listening to at the moment.

Yes, I can click to turn the music off…and that’s the first thing I do when I go to those sites. But there’s a worse problem that won’t be solved that way.

2. For some reason those blogs with music regularly cause my computer to lock up and sometimes crash. Just now, as I’m in the middle of uploading some large groups of files to a web site, I went to one of those musical blogs and everything stopped working. I had to close all the windows and restart the upload to get things going again. Now, I have a fairly fast DSL connection, so I hate to think what is happening to others with slower internet connections.

So, please, if you want to share your music with me through your blog, leave it turned off. Give me the option to turn the music on and listen if I want…but stop crashing my computer with your sound files.

Thank you.

I’ve been working for the past week on a dance concert at Ohio University, first watching, then photographing, then editing, and now uploading. All the photos have now been uploaded to a web site where they can be viewed and prints can be ordered. Here’s the url if you want to look: http://public.fotki.com/DaveL51/ou-win-08/
But be forewarned…there are thousands of photos there.
