Last week I mentioned how I had reverted to a one post per view layout because at times when I had added playlists to my post, the playlists were all playing simultaneously. In this present post I would like to know if music is welcomed on the blogs you like to visit.
Typically, in the past, I never turned on my speakers unless there was something specific that I was going to listen to. I didn't realize that some blogs had music playing. Then one day I had left my speakers on and was surprised by mysterious music coming out of my computer. It took me a while to realize that the source was the blog page that I was reading at the time.
Sometimes the music is annoying. Often it is quite nice. If I am trying to read something that requires contemplation I will probably turn the music off. If I am reading something that is not overly complex I may leave the music on.
One example of a music suitable blog is Yvonne's Welcome to My World of Poetry. Since she is usually presenting light entertaining poetry and not complex text, the music is complementary to the blog post. Her song choices have something to do with the poem of the day. Her blog is one of entertainment and the music is part of the package.
I have tried to only use music on posts like the ones that had to do with favorite albums and the like. I wanted to use the music to give examples of what I was talking about.
Do you enjoy music automatically playing on a site that you visit? Would you prefer to be first given an option as to whether you want to listen to music? Do you prefer having links to click on to in order to hear song examples a blogger wants to present for their blog bit? Do you like to have video clips offered on a blog post or do you ignore them or find them a nuisance?
