Mr Goldie, if in fact you are a Mr, maybe a Ms, your blog is fine, but such early days….you’ve got to earn the accolades in the blogosphere and it takes years believe me. The ‘tricks’ of getting traffic are out there but they don’t work, there are no shortcuts. What works is a dedicated posting schedule, an authentic voice, a good overview of your subject and/or topics, original content that other blogs will want to host on their own site, etc etc etc. You must become a journalist and do your research too. The Moose site is now heavily-trafficked after two years of at least 3 posts a day. 852 blogs link to the Moose and we get about 63,000 unique visitors a month…that’s uniques, not just our fine regular readers such as yourself. To get there I have put in on average about 3 hours a day every day for two years. Keep at it and you’ll be fine. BTW, my local top picks are up on Indie Music Portland

WOW! I HAD NO IDEA PAMPELMOOSE WAS SO BIG IN THE BLOGOSPHERE... Maybe I need to beef up on my online stalking techniques!

As always -- THANK YOU! I look forward to our time together! My vision for CIMTB is that it is local to Portland Oregon. It's by and for local musicians, enthusiast and maybe for the not so local who just loves Portland, Oregon's music scene!

Portland loves to showcase local cuisine and flavor in the culinary world....additionally, native or transplanted bands are becoming de rigeur for listening pleasures here and elsewhere.... however, breaking boundaries are good... makes one think more, strive more, learn more.... look around...

my top 10 list coming soon too!!! and it is not so .......conventional... ;.)

Your top 10 will be a refreshing change of pace. Please wake up my mind and heart with some new tunes!!! I am looking for a blogger who wants to write about indie jazz in PDX... throwin' it out there in case I forgot to tell you!
