I plan on creating a blog focused on playlists called “Playlists for the People.” I was inspired to make a blog like this by my passion for making music, listening to music, and collecting music in general. On “Playlists for the People,” I would create and post weekly playlists featuring a variety of different genres. Each playlist will have a theme and act as a soundtrack for everyday life. Some playlist ideas include: songs for a lazy day, songs for when you just need a break, songs that will make you have a better day, songs about the sun. The goals for my blog to are to be universally appealing and relatable, and to provide readers with new music to listen to for every mood or situation in life. In my search for similar blogs, I found it very difficult to come up with one centered around playlists. However, I perused a couple of music blogs in general, and one called Gorilla Vs. Bear especially stood out. Gorilla Vs. Bear focuses on up and coming bands and artists, and features youtube videos and soundcloud links to songs. While the site was very busy and confusing to navigate, the actual music content was easy to access. It also is updated frequently and has a good following online. I wish Gorilla vs. Bear would give more textual descriptions of the songs they feature because I don’t want to click on a song that I wouldn’t like to hear. I felt as if the blog had no real voice or personality to accompany the music posted. The website that is most relevant to my project is 8tracks. 8tracks is a very popular music sharing website in which people post playlists rather than songs. On 8tracks, you can search playlists according to what mood you are in or what music appeals to you. It is extremely easy to use and navigate, serves a specific purpose, and attracts all types of music listeners. I tentatively plan on using 8tracks to upload the playlists I post on my own blog.
