And it is December — I can’t believe 2016 will end soon! Are you guys all ready for the holidays and to bid farewell to 2016? I think I am ready for this year to end, haha! But before I greet 2017, I’m here to do the last Timeless Thoughts post for the year. Georgie and I co-host this monthly link-up, and I am hosting again for this month. If you would like to participate, you’re more than welcome to join our link-up by submitting your entry with the link-up widget located at the end of this entry! This link-up is opened for two weeks, and your entry can be about anything you find unforgettable from your past or present! It can be an object, an event, a person — anything goes — and you can have more than one thing you miss. For this month, here’s what I’ve been missing lately!
In April 2005, I made a new website called Capriccio. Back then MP3 rotation sites were popular, and with my music background and a love for instrumentals, oldies, and jazz, I started my own rotation site. On this site, I would share five to seven songs in MP3 format I was currently digging or wanted to share with my visitors on a bi-monthly to monthly basis. Some months I did special rotations, where I would share more than five songs — like a special holiday rotation. But for the most part, I shared five songs, and they ranged from classical to oldies to Kpop to Jpop to jazz to soundtracks . . . in other word, it was an eclectic mix. I worked on this site until September 2010, and I ultimately closed the site in January 2012.
I find myself missing those days when MP3 rotation sites were popular. I met and made a couple of great friends, one of whom I still keep in regular contact. The site allowed me to share my love of music with other people, but I was also introduced to so many great songs I would have never considered listening on my own. Although I closed the site in 2012, I missed sharing music with others, and that’s why I made the decision to start up Symphonic Selections. It’s not the same as what I did on Capriccio, but I like that it’s more low-key, and I can focus on one song (and a couple of its variation).
Do you remember MP3 rotation sites? Did you frequent them? What kind of songs would you share if you had run one? Share with me in the comments!
This concludes my post. Below are the rules, banner, and the widget for you to submit your entry; you will have two weeks to submit! I look forward to seeing all your posts, and I hope to see you all again next month at Georgie’s blog!
