Anyone got any tips/suggestions for getting your own site set up?
Mainly looking for recommendations on decent/cheap (maybe those are mutually exclusive) platforms, not sure I can be arsed building something from scratch. But any insight or advice on the whole thing is welcome
I was always curious about this service. Haven’t used it by one of the founders was behind CashMusic
Guess it depends what you want to do or express on the site. Who you feel will visit and why? If it’s just a case of bringing your bandcamp, Spotify, YouTube, newsletter, etc together then you could probably just have a domain pointing to a LinkTree for now?
The main practical reason I’m thinking about one is so Ive got somewhere I can list all my music, as bandcamp misses some stuff that’s on compilations or that’s on labels without label accounts.
It’d also be nice to have somewhere I can go into a bit more detail about stuff - like recommendations (I’ve got something basic on my linktree Adventsong | Instagram | Linktree) or backgrounds to each release etc. Totally self indulgent but might be fun for some people to read
I think it’s probably a good look to have something official too?
I guess all the shit happening with bandcamp atm has got me thinking it would be good to have something of my own I’ve got a bit more control over. Mailing list as well
do what you will with this information, of course, but i think it’s worth highlighting that wix are an israeli-owned company who are currently strongly encouraging their staff to share pro-israel propaganda on social media, and who recently sacked a member of staff from their dublin office for criticising the israeli regime.
