Music or no?



This is for Linda--who asked where my playlist went? I took it off after reading some other blogs in which they stated that music is really annoying and if they go to a blog and there is music, they never return. I thought how sad if I was turning people off with the music, so I took it off. I enjoy listening to other's playlists and if I don't like it, I just scroll down and turn it off. What are YOUR feelings? Do you avoid blogs that have music? So, I decided to create a poll....do you like to hear music on blogs? Do you absolutely NOT like music on blogs, or would you like the choice? (well, that's silly, because you always have a choice to turn it off). I know this is my blog, but if you think about it, I am not on my own blog for that long--everyone else is! Please vote (poll is on side bar) and let me know how you feel! Thanks!
Editor's addition: ps...guess what? I found out that you can choose for the music to NOT start automatically (this must be a new feature, I don't remember that). SO...I still want your opinions, but I have added my playlist 'jukebox' at the bottom of the page..but YOU must turn it on. :)

I voted "NO." But I don't turn on the volume on my PC - just in case.

My vote is for "who hears music," BUT I'll admit it's only because people have music on their blogs (or websites) that my sound is off.

I mostly read blogs through Google Reader and you don't hear the music with that. If I've accessed the blog directly I usually turn it off, but I have heard songs I like and left it playing. I usually don't care that it is there because I do know how to turn it off if I don't like the music.

OK - I voted, but I couldn't find where to turn on the "tunes" if I wanted. You said on this page?

Much to report - just returned from Yellowstone this evening. Hit all the fruit and vegetable stands on the drive home. Yeah!

Good wishes,
Marne

As I use Google reader to read blogs I'm not affected by the music too much...it's only when I click over to comment and if more than one blog is playing music it can be quite interesting :o)

I do dislike music on blogs or any kind of website actually. Sometimes I surf when at work and the auto start music is annoying because it catches me by surprise and shows that I'm not working.
