Hello everyone, just wanted to drop in for a quick hello and take a moment to address something that I believe is important in maintaining the integrity of the blogging community at large.
It has recently come to my attention that many of the synopses I have written have been reproduced for both other blogs and also various music websites. I am flattered by this, however, I must ask that IF you choose to use any of the content in this blog, please credit me as such. I am passionate about music and sharing it with others is an integral part of that passion. I work very hard in my research before ever posting my findings here, so it's important to me that my work is properly credited. Crediting those who originate the content of their sites not only creates new traffic to the source site, but it also maintains a healthy relationship between bloggers everywhere.
It has always been my aim to make this site not only a repository for lost music, but also a resource for inquiring minds who want to know about the artists behind the music. It would be easy to blindly throw a handful of download links to the site each day and leave it at that, but Robots For Ronnie exists primarily for glorifying artists who escaped mass recognition and appreciation when it mattered most. Nothing would be more rewarding than knowing an artist has visited here and read your comments. As a musician myself, the true reward of writing and performing music is the appreciation and inspiration reciprocated from the listener. My intent here is to bring these artifacts to light, in the hopes that these talented individuals who have left behind the relics we unearth here, will know that time has not forgotten them. Call it overly sentimental, call it cheesy, but this is important to me. Judging from your feedback, many of you find this to be part of RFR's charm. Mission accomplished!
So, I ask...please, if you wish to use the writings or download links I've posted here, please acknowledge the source as well. It's good etiquette, it's ethical and it's just the nice thing to do. Fair?
I'll see you all in a few days. Much love from RFR :)
