The votes are in!
Thank you so much for voting on my poll in regard to blog music. You may be wondering what I think about blog music—do I like it? Do I think it’s not necessary? Do I find it annoying? Did I actually vote in my own poll? YES! I did! I actually voted in my own poll. After all, everyone is entitled to an opinion and mine has been shaped not only through experience, but also through research. Do you know that the average person spends approximately one or two minutes looking at the blog of another? If that person has to spend any time turning off music he doesn’t appreciate, that person will leave the blog altogether.
A blog should never be “work” for the viewer—that’s my opinion. Oftentimes, I have become frustrated with blog music, especially when it interferes with music already playing on my computer. “Oh Sola Mio” and “Amazing Grace” coming forth from the same sound system creates a cacophony, not an enjoyable listening experience! “Just turn off your speakers if you don’t want to hear it,” was one solution offered by a fellow blogger. But why should I have to? Should one’s blog music dictate the control panel of my computer sound system? Is it fair that I should take my time to adjust slide bars and dials just so I can look at another’s blog in silence or while listening to the music of my own choice?
Those who voted in favor of blog music (10 votes) were outvoted by those who are not (18 votes). The people have spoken—blog music is not really necessary and can, in fact, be an annoyance. :o) And now you know how I voted on my own poll.
