good piece covering the quite small (as far as I can tell) music journalism blogsphere. I would really like the see this realm grow, but I have to say I'm really frustrated with the lack of RSS feeds in this world. Makes it damn hard to keep up with a weblog if they don't have a feed. Perhaps if the pioneers had feeds things might grow a bit faster?

So I'm making an offer to anyone currently music weblogging without an RSS feed or who would like to start one, I'll set you up with a free moveable type site on my server. Ad free and what not. Only caveat (for tech reasons) is that it needs to be on one of my current domains, preferably stateofemergence.com. Oh and of course you'll need to convince me that you have reasonably good taste in music. But I'm open. Just shoot an email to me if you are interested. Feel free to spread the word. Over is open ended until I decide to stop it.

man, now that I finally use an aggregator (bloglines) I get really frustrated with any site that doesn't have rss. It makes it too cumbersome to keep with them any other way.

I don't know what to do with these guys who are writing great posts but it doesn't get out there prperly simply because there's no good way to syndicate/aggregate it.

If your offer is still open I would like to refer som people to you.
