New Readers Start Here:- Story so far

We had a human reader this morning for yesterday's post, visiting us deliberately and followed links through to a streaming sample - not that we want to make you self concious - it's just that we are watching and you are very welcome!

It occured to me that if we are going to get people as well as robots visiting a brief story so far might be in order.

We started the blog last December soon after the site was launched and have tracked the ups and downs ever since.

There was an extended excursion into Podcasting before we realised that our MP3 samples were apparently proving attractive as ringtones. The replacement of MP3 samples by streaming samples and all the accompanying anxiety over compatibility. In practice the change seems to have worked very well and few visitors experience any difficulty.

As a new kid on the block we are trying every free/very low cost trick in the book to try to achieve internet profile for our music and get it infront of as many ears as possible - confident that it will sell itself on its audible merits. How could anyone resist music like this.

For this reason some of the blog is food for spiders who devour it voraciously - for example:

Most recently we have been clarifying our iPod/iTunes compatibility because we offer such good value music to iPod users that can easily be managed with iTunes software.

We are currently working on a Distinctive Ring tones or is that Ringtones collection for discerning mobile phone users who want a discrete and tasteful way to assert their individuality. (We'll be back latter to insert the links.)

In case you weren't aware blogs are just like the books in George Orwell aka Eric Blair's '1984' the editors/ authors can go back and correct history or theirstory with out the reader being aware. Not sure what the spiders make of this but we'll try and find out in due course.

Introducing Children To Music… Strategies For Success

While we struggle to restore full menu fuctionality We thought you'd like to hear about a more uplifting topic: Introducing Children To Music - Strategies For Success I've heard a million parents lament the fact that they didn'’t get their children interested in music sooner. There are also hundreds of adults out there that wish they had learned how to play an instrument when they were younger. Studies actually support the idea that music stimulates certain brain connections and can actually help children grow smarter! Music also provides an invaluable outlet for safe expression of feelings and emotions, and can also serve as an important learning tool throughout your children's lives! Music helps educate in many ways, by developing children'’s memory skills and nourishing their spirit. Now, some children are a bit resistant to music at first, but you can easily find ways to encourage them to enjoy music in many different forms early in life. You need to si

Bigdaddy's in the Wings

Friday's customer mystery is unresolved ... But meanwhile, word on the SEO street is that, the next major re-index on Google, code name Bigdaddy, is being prepared and a few of our keywords seem to be in play. Since Jagger we have already seen our most competitive keywords drift back into effective obscurity but the rest seem pretty secure at the moment. It looks as if this could cause some further erosion but nothing too exciting. Our sub-menu problem isn't helping people to move around the site so we must get to the bottom of it. The response from support hasn't been too helpful so far but we shall persist. The production software problem is also proving intractable - technology is great when it works but more than a tad frustrating when it don't.

We're Back with the Symphonies

I can't believe it has taken so long but we are finally there and two Beethoven Symphonies have been published. An early bird has already bought the first movement of the Fifth! The hubris of recording these wonderful pieces on new world instruments caused me to pause for some time but each time I listened to them I heard something new and the overall effect was so positive I have pressed ahead. Inevitably some of the machinery was a bit creaky after such little use - not least my memory for where I had put things. We also bought a new player which is taking a little time to bed in - not helped by browser quirks on this PC which refused to play them - sorted now! We're looking to develop the use of play lists as a way of promoting sales but there is a bit more work to do on that. The auto play of the excerpt from the first movement of Beethoven's 5th is a temporary celebration and will be replaced by a more controllable solution later this week. After the repair work
