just a blip?

I stumbled across the latest site to be obsessed with this weekend via a number of Twitter feeds….blip.fm.

At first I just groaned, seriously questioning whether I have time for anything else digital but over the course of yesterday, I blipped a few tracks and started following a few familiar faces and it is definitely growing on me.

So what is it? In short, it is like the secret love-child of Twitter and Last.fm…

A music sharing site where you post short messages (like tweets…but called blips) with a track attached. The timeline builds up a story accompanied by music documenting your friends’ day. You play the timeline and have music on all day selected by your friends.

You can upload your tunes and give people cred (called props) based on what you think to their tunes.

You can also link it last fm but I don’t know how so check their FAQ for that.

Oh and you can send your blips to other soc networks like Twitter etc too…which frankly I find annoying but hey, just my opinion!

Anyway, blip me here and decide what you think.

    Hi Jordi, yeah it seems a few people have been blogging about blip this week…shows what happens if you turn your back for a second these days, there’s a new social media revolution happening by the time you turn back 😉

    A couple of my twitter pals looped me into their posts earlier on, check them out:
