I was searching around today for some good blogs that talk about music and music business – resources we all can use to better ourselves. A great tool I found in that search was blogcatalog.com… I just went in, typed a few keywords, and a whole mess of blogs popped up in the categories I was looking for.

First of all, blogging is a great way to get your name out there into the marvelous interwebs more often… search engines love them, and so should you. If you’ve got a blog I’d recommend these blog directories as a great place to start to get your name and your blog out into the world.

Blogcatalog (www.blogcatalog.com) appears to be the most professional of these resources, but a quick Google search will reveal plenty more. If you find others that work well, I’d love to hear about them!

Ten years ago the internet was a different beast. We thought it was just cool that we could send a letter to a friend across the country through a handy device called email. As musicians we all had a website – I certainly had one – but it was pretty elementary… a bio, a few photos, and maybe an email address so people could get in touch. We live in a different world now, and the internet is not the same sluggish beast it once was. The capabilities and opportunities afforded to independent musicians now can completely transform the way they go about their careers, and that’s what this blog is going to be about.

This transformation of the internet is what music:nuvo is all about as well. It used to be that we’d send our fans to one site (maybe CD Baby) to buy our CD. Then we send them to PayPal to send us money for our T-Shirts. Then along came iTunes… yet another store to send people off to. Honestly, it all gets a little overwhelming. We spend all this time on stage trying to get folks to come to our website, and then once they come we send them off to one of any number of other sites.

Enter music:nuvo. Through music:nuvo, we give you the opportunity to sell everything you want from one simple store. Digital albums and tracks? Sure. CDs? Absolutely. T-Shirt? Of course. And you can sell pretty much anything else too… wallpapers, PDF booklets, bumper stickers, buttons, videos (DVDs or downloadable)… yeah, seriously, whatever you want.

It’s a one of a kind store and this is just the beginning. It’s affordable and gives you better artist royalty rates than any other site in the industry (up to 100% of retail)!

So if you’re not quite satisfied with the way you’re selling your merchandise as an artist, sending your fans all over the internet, then you need to check out music:nuvo. Let’s transform the way independent artists are doing business!
