The line graph above is a representation of the Songs:Illinois traffic trend. Can you tell which way it’s trending? Neither can I. While I’m happy with the number and quality of visitors I would like to see that trend going up instead of jumping all over the pace.
SO while this is dorky and a little pathetic I thought I’d ask for your help. I ask this because I truly love the music on Songs:Illinois. The writing leaves a lot to be desired, I know. But the music inspires me, often brightens my day, and never fails to move me in some small way.
SO SO I was thinking I’d ask you guys for help. If you’re a regular reader or even a newbie I thought I’d ask you to help spread the word about this little site. Email a friend or two, if you’re on Facebook do one of those little updates (ie “Fred Smith is loving Songs:Illinois right now”), add a link to me on any of your online sites, sign up for the email update, etc., etc.
Here’s a little something that will make the spiders at Hype and Elbo.ws pick up this post. These songs are from the early 1900′s and have just been reissued on Tompkins Square. Read more about this fascinating release here.
