Startle me with music!
I'm Stumbling the other day (I may have to uninstall it again) and I come to this blog that looks kind of interesting, I'm skimming it, looking at the pictures and all of a sudden there is noise! Twang! Twang! It's the loud start of some sort of musical accompaniment for the blog. I can see it, read it, now I have background music too!
But here's the thing. I like music. But I may not like the music of the person whose blog I'm reading and I simply may not want to hear music right at that particular moment. They probably wouldn't like the music that I like either. Music is very subjective. But the point is, it is entirely possible that I might have found your blog quite interesting and or enjoyable -until the din started. I am aware that all I have to do is mute my sound, or slide around the page to find the little music player and click the music off. But I'm more likely to click on Stumble again and move on.
There have been a couple of blogs I've run into lately that startled me with their music, and I would just rather not, thank you. I am sure there are things people don't find attractive about my blog - too cluttered, the wrong colors, what are the flowers for? And that's fine, I know I can't please everyone. But the music takes it to a whole new level for me.
I don't know if I'm one of those persnickety people who doesn't like lots of things and am easily annoyed, so I'm asking. How do you feel about blogs with music? I've put up a poll. It's blue, right side bar.
If you want to know the truth - I am actually just trying to find out how neurotic I really am!
Play along, m'kay? Thanks.
** Edited to add - okay, the poll is not blue. I changed it. But there IS a poll.
