About The Cold Cut...

The musings of a teenage audiophile. Indie, Rock, Hip-Hop, Rap, Dance, Dubstep, Garage, Metal... music crosses all boundaries. The Cold Cut is devoted to giving you a taste of what's going on in music at the moment.

About Me

A 17 year old taking his first tentative steps into the world of blogging. In my first year, its been up and down, from the slow first months to a busy time around the one year anniversary.

Happy Birthday

Just a few random tracks I'm enjoying at the moment...

Radiohead- Street Spirit
(Link 2)
Vampire Weekend- Oxford Comma (Link 2)
The Courteeners- Aftershow (Link 2)
Madonna/Britney Spears- 4 Minutes To Break The Ice (Link 2)

On 1st April 2008, The Cold Cut turned 1. A momentous occasion, don't you think? So momentous that I forgot to post about it on the day...

Anyway, the site's been going for just over a year, and although it was a bit of a bumpy start, things are settling down nicely. At first it was 'The Cold Cut', devoted to anything and everything. Then it was films, music and TV. And finally, music. It now has a clear cut identity... although I still cover anything that takes my fancy.
I used to obsess over stats, but recently it has become more of a treat to see the hits increasing. At the moment, I'm getting around 1000 a day.
That might not sound like a lot, but on one particularly boring day I had a look at how many hits some of the most popular music blogs were getting daily. The results were interesting: Good Weather For Airstrikes gets around 1300 a day. Neiles Life has around 500 a day. The obvious leaders, though, are Pretty Much Amazing! (with an average 3500 visiters a day!), and Brooklyn Vegan (unpublished figures, which are huge). So basically, I'm still low down on the food chain, but I'm not doing too badly. I can't really compete with those websites as they are run by hordes of people (hint hint- If you would like to write here then email me...).

I just thought I should commemorate this moment. I hope there are many more anniversaries to come.

PS- I'm looking to branch out and get my name into the air. Any ideas of publications/magazines/websites that you think would let me write for them? Cheers...

    How did you find out those stats about the blogs?

    I get about on average 300 hits a day, which is pretty poor really in comparison to those blogs and yours!

    I was really sad- I just worked them out by looking at the stats at the beginning of a day, and then the same time the following day.

    You may get 300 hits, but you have 50 subscribers! I only have 3, for some weird reason. Maybe people come back to yours more than mine.

    Either way, music liberation is awesome. I'm going to be doing a podcast soon- have you got yours on iTunes? It might give you a few more hits!

    The stats from where?

    Yeah I got my podcast into the iTunes music store a couple of days ago. It seemed to take forever for it to be accepted which was a bit frustrating. But yeah hoping that will increase my exposure a bit.

    Thats cool your going to be doing one, look forward to hearing that!
