Music Biz Blogs: Gateway To 75 Top Music Industry Bloggers

Music-biz-blogsI 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.

Music Biz Blogs launched years ago. After quite a bit of neglect, I revived the site when I began writing at Hypebot and last week I updated it so that it now includes 75 bloggers.

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.

The feed itself is created using Feed Informer. The included sites can be searched using a Google Custom Search Engine created through Google AdSense.

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:

  • inactive
  • content jackers
  • too many non-business posts
  • too much company news
  • excessively poor behavior

If you think your blog should be included or would like it removed, please contact Clyde Smith at:

  1. Thanks a lot for the list!
    Another great list would be a list of blogs that review independent music or write articles about independent artists. That would really help many artists.

  2. I’ve been getting that request. Unfortunately I don’t know that space well enough to make such a list.
    Also, they’d need to be genre-specific.
    I am making some notes towards a post about blogger outreach and also a possible source for such info. I’ll try to do that sooner rather than later.

  3. I am so very happy that I found this site!!! Blogs have never really been my thing but I have had to step out of my comfort zone and create and review blogs based on my field in the entertainment industry for school. I wish I would have found this during my last class! Thank you so much!!!
