New listeners are people too

I’ve had a few people ask me if the emails they’ve been getting about new listeners on Blip.fm are fake users or possibly someone using a bot to sign up a bunch of accounts. Rest assured, they really are new users who have added you as a favorite DJ.

We recently rolled out a way for new users to find other DJ’s on Blip.fm with similar musical taste based on what artists and songs they’ve blipped. New users can then add the top 30 matches to their favorites, making their personal station (the one at http://blip.fm/home) immediately useful with blips from people they actually have something in common with. So each of the emails you’ve received means that a new user searched for an artist or song you blipped and you were in the top results.

We thought this would be a better way to introduce people to the site, and a good way to connect people with similar taste. You can try the new flow yourself by going to http://blip.fm/welcome. You can also search for people who’ve blipped similar artists/songs by clicking on “Search by music” under the search box in the right column.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you
wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with
some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
