Site of the week – Blip.fm 

Blip.fmMaybe it is because I am a former party/club DJ.  Perhaps it is my frustration with the suggested songs that Last.fm and Pandora give me.  Plus, I haven’t updated the playlists on my iPod for so long that I hardly use the damn thing anymore.

Whatever the reason, my newest addiction is Blip.fm.

So what is so great about this site? Well, here goes…..

  1. Of course, there is the access to any song under the sun.
  2. The “Twitter like” interface (which includes mirco-blogging) is minimalistic and easy to use.
  3. Speaking of Twitter, you can link your Blip account to your Twitter account so that every time you add a song a “Twit” is posted.
  4. The social aspect of the site is fairly intuitive which opens up the door to discovering new tracks.

It might take you some time to really “get” the benefits of Blip since on day one you won’t have a network of friends to share music with.  But trust me, a week later you will wonder how you lived without it.
