I recently updated Music Biz Blogs and it now includes headlines from 75 music industry bloggers who are all worth a look. It's a simple site combining a headline feed, a Google Custom Search Engine allowing you to search the included blogs and a link list of all the blogs. It's a great way to keep up with a wide range of sources many of them focused on news for indie musicians and DIY'ers.
The core of this simple one page site is a feed featuring headlines from all included sites with a sentence or two from each post. You can check the site for updates or you can receive a daily newsletter or use the RSS feed.
Music Biz Blogs' sidebar includes links to all the blogs, a Flickr badge posting a few recent pics tagged "musicbusiness" and a Twitter widget featuring tweets from a short list of Music Biz Linkmasters.
I pulled or excluded specific blogs for the following reasons:
- content jackers
- too many non-business posts
- too much company news
- excessively poor behavior
