Indie Music Marketing: Blogs and Online Press Kits (and a plea for love)

The Joggers are on tour check out there blog and look at how awesome their Portland indie music blog is.

By the way if you are in a band and want to have a sweet online press kit check out the one AristeiA did posted on their blog...

Death and The Maiden by Egon Schiele

Dear Real and Imagined Readers of This Blog,

What I really wanted to blog about is:
We are not getting paid nor does this blog drive traffic to a business website (I wish there was a Crappy Indie Music Industries that would be hilarious). We drive traffic to other blogs and MUSICIANS AND BANDS...

If you blog about Portland Music and you are reading this blog please leave a comment. I would like to strongly encourage those of you who blog for local newspapers (ie; The Mercury or Willamette Week) to introduce yourself.

And if you leave a comment please feel strongly encouraged to use your name and add the url that would direct us to your blog. We love you. Why don't you love us?

-- Ste. Goldie

PS do it for the kids man
