The Bulby Awards first annual contest between websites is under full swing and in the final stretch this week as many different websites including T.CO, Twitter’s URL shortener domain, Joan.CO of Joan Rivers, and many more compete for the top spots in 10 different categories from Best Content to Best Startup Resource to Best Social Idea. Song of the Day is proud to have been nominated for the category of Best Content against several other up and coming websites including an Irish Social News website, a Columbian news blog website, a Bahamas travel blog website and several others! The competition is fierce among these startup websites, and Song of the Day was off to an early lead against Pappas.co a blog that appeared to be the creation of the design team at another online company. Pappas.co soon took the lead as I personally didn’t bother sending out any more “Please vote for me” updates on my blog. But now, seeing that I’ve been knocked into 3rd place tidily by the upstart Irish lifestyle and general interest blog Socialable.CO, I feel it’s my duty to at least give this another go and see what my fans and I can muster. I know there’s a lot of music lovers out there just waiting to put their vote in for Indie bands all across the nation. Let’s see where I can ring the freedom guitar and stomp on the distortion pedal to get more of my followers on Twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere to chime in for the music they love.
Even if I don’t win, it’s been a great honor to be recognized for my efforts in getting my love of great lesser known music out to the public. The message of my blog is simple, there are thousands of bands you’ve never heard of that are much better than what you hear on the radio and TV, and these bands need your support. Music is culture, and our culture cannot be found on the radio or on TV right now, tens of thousands of amazing bands exist right now that are never heard for the simple fact that major record labels and their subsidiary radio stations only care about making money and playing formula music that satisfies the widest possible audience.
Please take a moment to vote for Song of the Day in the Bulby Awards at Opportunity.CO.
