How can I get a picture to my profile, like Casie has? I would like to have one.

You get the picture by uploading it to Gravatar
However you have to have a WordPress site. You can get a wordpress site for free, but extra plugins and design will cost you. The Viral Blogging System, also called Kalatu, is actually the design and plugins on a WordPress format.

Sarah, Thank you!
Your answer was very helpfull.
I got a WordPress site. In fact a few days ago, I bought a musictheme for WordPress. There are a ton of them to chose from, could be even a top100.

Probably won’t be doing that because the other wordpress “themes” don’t have a support system to teach musicians how to actually market their music after they get their site, or have the automated settings to sell their stuff through a sales funnel like Kalatu does. But I am very happy to hear that you are blogging Martin! I will be working on that songwriting contest one shortly though!

PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT: BRASH! Blog makes theTop 100 Music Industry Blog List | B!

February 26, 2015 at 8:06 am - Reply

[…] Making the top 100 list shows BRASH! and its readers that hard work definitely pays off. Since August 2011, this blog has worked hard to deliver useful content to its readers while remaining in the positive media sector. BRASH! does not fall into the trend of entertainment gossip or artist bashing to gain more viewers. “I am humbled to be recognized on this list. It was very unexpected and rewarding to know that artists are gaining something from BRASH!”, says creator/writer E. Alexcina Brown. BRASH! not only provides marketing tips, this blog also highlights independent artists for a chance to gain media exposure for their music and overall brand.. To see who else made the list click here. […]

After reading your first post ‘All You Need Is Love’ and a walk with the dog. I got an idea (I believe it’s a win win) to match the spirite of your first post and your marketing.
Why not do every 3 months about your MEMBERS/ FANS of you blog. Make a blog about them with your personal touche! That would realy rock! It does exactly show the intention of your core message and of your 1ste made post and a great marketing strategy. Sometimes we just need to think out of the box.

You have so many good ideas Martin! I can’t keep up! Still working on that songwriting contest post. :) I’m quickly learning though that it will probably not be a top 100 list… I really thought there were more songwriting contests, more like top 35 or something.

A top 35 would also be great! Quality is more important then quantity.
