After announcing at a party that my CD collection had just clicked over the 3000 mark a number of guests wondered if I had ever listened to them all. After some sleepless nights I had to admit that I probably hadn’t listened to the entire 3000. Hence the blog, 3000 albums, 3000 days (which is 10 years in old money).

  1. I think your blog is a terrific idea! I don’t know if you’re interested, but it may be a good idea to supply a link to streaming samples or YouTube examples so we can hear a little taste of the music. Obviously, money isn’t the focus of your blog but becoming an Amazon affiliate to provide a link to each album via your affiliate link may direct readers to music and perhaps get you a little cash. Last suggestion is you might consider a tag cloud of the bands you write about to help readers find common interests. Again, great stuff so far, keep it up!

  2. Hi! Thanks for your comment and for following. I like your collection and what you’re doing – you may also like the One Album a Day blog too. Love your header image also.
    Thanks again!

  3. I have several hundred records from my step-dad who passed away and have contemplated a similar blog. If I do, I’ll let you know. Don’t hold your breath. Sara Bernhardt’s waiting, waiting, waiting for us.

  4. I’ve been bouncing around from post to post the last hour or so and now I have my evening cut out for me digging out old vinyl and (eek!) cassettes. Or maybe I’ll turn to Grooveshark… Great fun this.

  5. Hope you’re up and active still. Just crossed paths today and thought your blog seemed a good, if daunting, initiative. Don’t suppose there’s some Fred Neil in the collection? I’ve always tagged him as at least as important as Dylan for influence. Better singer too.
