I have been throwing around a few ideas in my head and would like to hear what you guys think. First of all, I am a fan, just like you. I do this in my spare time which is before I go to work (yes I get up at 6:10 every morning to post)and when I come home from work and whenever I can on the weekends. I am a one man operation that is all about making sure that bands get heard and make money doing what they love. I put links to the Album Of The Day purely as a tool to promote the bands music, if you like the album please purchase it. Don't be a cheapskate. Yes, I would make a commision on the sale of the music, but I want to use that money to grow this community with different promotions and contests. So here are the changes and additions that I am thinking of:
1. Instead of an Album Of The Day, it would change to the Album Of The Week.
2. I would feature a "New Band To Burn One To" everyday. Get more bands out there for you guys to hear.
3. I would keep the MP3 Of The Day.
5. A Forum?
Let me know what you think about these ideas. I would love to hear from you. I am gonna take a few days off due to a very hectic schedule, but will return soon. Have no fear Heavy Planet is here to stay!
*If you are in a band and you want your band featured on Heavy Planet, please send me as much information as you can about your band. The only thing that I ask in return is either placement of a link to Heavy Planet on your MySpace or website or a simple thank you.
