  1. To Randy,
    If the blog is very personal, you can do whatever you want. But if not, you’d better put the music player’s default setting to off. Then if user want to, he can click play button to play it.

  2. Hey there David,
    I already have music on my blog, but I wanted to ask you a question. I’ve recieved emails asking me to remove it because it’s “intrusive”. I like it and I feel it is also a reflection of my personality. Is there some etiquette that states you shouldn’t put music on your blog?

  3. hei, i was wondering if you could teach me how to put music into blogspot. i want to put a song into this post and tried a few methods but it doesnt work.
