Homemade CD swap, anyone?

If you know me, like REALLY know me, then you know there's just about nothing I love more than mail....

No, not e-mail, although I do love that too.

But I'm talking about about 'honest to goodness mail' mail.

I especially love getting goodies in the mail, such as these little hotties I got today.

Mom, you rock.

And, it turns out I'm not the only one who loves getting mail.

Seriously, I thought the Libster was gonna have a freak attack when she got this Supremes cd in the mail yesterday. She loves them. It's what I like to call 'her first official phase'.

Moving on.

Well, today on my way home from Lib's doctor, my little wheels got to turnin', and I had an idea.
Don't be too surprised; it does happen every now and then.

Here were my thoughts:

*I have some really cool readers with great taste. (That would be you.)
*I love mail.
*I'm willing to bet I'm not the only one who loves mail....
*It's spring, and I'm in the mood for something new.
*And I'm ALWAYS on the lookout for new music to love.

So, here's what I've decided:

I'm going to host a CD swap via this here blog.

Here's how this will work:

1. You decide to participate. (Easy enough, yes?)
2. You leave a comment on this post with your e-mail address and the name of three muscial artists you enjoy sometime between now and April 29th.
3. On May 1, I'll match you up with someone else who has similar musical tastes.
4. You'll e-mail your partner, exchange info., burn a fab-o cd, and stick it in the mail.
(In other words, the only person you will give your address to is your partner.)
5. Sometime during the first week or so of May, you'll be enjoying some new tunes.

Oh, and feel free to help spread the word on your blog, facebook, twitter, or however else you so choose-- the more the merrier, right?

I know I have lots of amazing readers who are blog-less, and while this is unfortunate, I certainly don't want you to be left out of all the cd swapping fun.

Sounds great, yes?

The commenting may begin now.

And I'll try to contain my excitement.....because sometimes it can be too much;
blame it on the mail.

AND REMEMBER: PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IN YOUR COMMENT! Otherwise, it'll be hard for me to track to down to get you in touch with your partner.
Thanks. :)


  1. Sounds fun! I like all kinds of music, just depends on my mood that day.
    Lately, I have been getting into Jack Johnson. I also am a big Kid Rick and Pink fan. I like Glee a lot.
    I also like Billy Joel and Elton John.
    I've got a wide range of taste...just surprise me!

  2. How fun! I love this idea! :)

  3. Participating now!

    I love Glee, Avril Lavigne and Disney soundtrack music. (Tangled in particular).

  4. So I just flipped through my iTunes (and found about 20 new albums I want to download!), and it looks like it's mostly country & alternative. Brad Paisley, Garth, Reba, etc.....Foo Fighters, Florence + The Machine, AFI, Pearl Jam, Cage the Elephant. Pretty much anything except most pop and rap (although there are a few exceptions.)

  5. Yay! This sounds like so much fun! Right now my favorites are Mumford & Sons, Avett Brothers, and Brett Dennen. Can't wait!

  6. Hi! New follower stopping by from the blog hop. Have a great day! :-)

  7. Yay I'm excited!! I don't know who will like the same music as me, but I love beyonce, pink, lady Gaga, kanye west, katy perry, etc etc!!!

    Good luck!

  12. I can't decide between genres: either admitting I like Kesha, Katy Perry, and Britney ... or putting something respectable that I like just as much - Ingrid Michaelson, Jack Johnson, and Colbie Caillat (and I've just fallen in love with Mumford & Sons). I'm making this difficult aren't I?
