Music bloggers beware!

Rebecca Lang

If you’re using a Blogger format to post your musings about music (with MP3 accompaniments), be careful. A few big-name outlets, like Pop Tarts Suck Toasted (I’d put the link but it died), have been deleted in their entirety, accompanied by a short, formal email from Google that explains merely that they’ve violated Blogger’s terms of service. Let’s hope Tumblr, WordPress, etc. don’t follow suit, or the music blogosphere is going to look like a deserted cul-de-sac post Wall Street collapse. What will Hypem do?
