I'm a Blippin' Fool!

Do you use Blip.fm? It's a music site where you can listen and share what you're listening to. What exactly is a "blip"? According to the website FAQ, a blip is: "a combination of 1) a song and 2) a short message that accompanies it. The way you create a blip is to first search for a song that you want to hear (or a song that you want your listeners to hear), then add a short message (under 150 characters), finally you submit it. "

I've been using it for a few months, and I love it! They did some updates last night, and I noticed today you can now blip music videos! It's taking some getting used to - while I love the music videos, it makes searches more crowded, because it's pulling items from more places. I'll need to refine my searching abilities a bit more - hmmmm, I'll have to see if you can incorporate search operators.

You can also set Blip.fm to automatically update your Twitter status with your blips. That rocks, because I'm sharing with my Twitter followers, and they don't even need to be using Blip.fm! Sharing music... yeah, that makes me smile. :)

I've heard of it, but never had a reason to check t out. Now I do.

Letsee. You blog, you're on Facebook and Twitter, and now you're using Blip.fm. Am I missing anything?

Joe: Ok, you got a feel for it... so start being a DJ, yourself! I know you have good taste in music. :)

Fred: Mmmmm, you only forgot Flickr. But that's not a social networking site, so I guess you did get everything on my social butterfly side. LOL
