Sharing is Caring

I feel like I'm in an emotional dilemma.  As much as I love sharing, and I only share stuff that's like 30 years old and mostly can't even be found on compact disk, I feel like it's a witch hunt.  I keep seeing so many blogs and stuff get taken down.

It's part of the reason why I blog less and less.  It's like I feel as if the more I put effort into this not knowing if one day I'll sign on and it'll be gone, the less I feel drawn to continuing.

Does anyone have a view on this?  Over the years my interaction has been minimal in here.  I know most of you just come to grab anonymously and that's what you do.  Basically I'm cool with that too.  Some like to give, some like to take, some like to do both.  Such is life I guess.

In the meantime check out my stores.  ExpatMichael's Vinyl Shop and my Discogs shop cause I gotta help make ends meet somehow.


Click through on my Facebook fan page and the description about me on the left side of this page.  Stay in touch.  Let me know about you.  Maybe the experience can become just a tad less anonymous for a few of us.

And feel free to give me a little gift.  It's a sign that you care about what I'm doing here.  You can paypal me at Expatmic@Hotmail.com and make it a gift.  I'll be so appreciative.

number 1 great blog, extremely appreciated and you should post more.
number 2 i dont think your blog will get taken down. the songs you put up aren't really ones that people are trying to tell so no one will get mad.

Dear Michael,

I really appreciate your effort uploading and updating on your blog. I think it is the only possible way I can thank you for what you do. I enjoy enormously your recommendations, and its only that. We love music, not a crime. As for profit, I will most definitely find your stores and pick some of your records.

thanks again!!

i rely solely on the amazing abilities of bloggers like yourself and thebeatelectric to dig through the endless mountain of bad disco/funk/etc and present gems like these that would otherwise be completely forgotten forever. As for your store, i will support, but dont let it discourage you. i've had 10+ songs chart in the last 2 years, plus tv/film placements, etc, bla bla... i have yet to see a dime. id say you have to do it for the love, but thats really cleche. You have to do it...because thats what you do! If you can envision yourself doing something else, then stop and do that. Regardless, i cant tell you how much i appreciate your contribution to the current music scene as well as scenes passed.

Well I do lots of other things too. I certainly don't blog as often as others do. But I try to keep my posts to high quality stuff. I also prefer to lean towards a bit more rare when possible.

Your blog is one of many I visit on a regular basis, and have always appreciated it and enjoyed it. So here's hoping you keep posting for years to come. I wouldn't worry about being taken down cause if its going to happen it's going to happen - not much you can do about it.
