Very important polls

I've recently been informed by some people in my life- 1 I am married to and the other is married to my sister- (but I'm not gonna name names) that the music playing on my blog is annoying. That it startles them and they don't think it should start automatically. So, I'm taking it to my readers. How do you feel? Honest opinions please because it's not a huge deal to me.


And while we're at it...

Tori, I love your music. Every time it starts to play, I think "Man, I love this song!" Just my two cents. :)

PJ said...

I am a BLOG HOG! Which means...it's my blog, I'll put it on if I want, I'll pull a post if I want, I'll play music if I want. There are A LOT of things I am not selfish with, my blog is ALL MINE:) Your blog is yours! By the number of comments you get, it is workin' for ya!

BTW...I lOVE this song too :D

Yvonne said...

I love all the stuff on your sidebar. I usually listen to iTunes when I'm blogging, so I get thrown when the music starts.

annie said...

The more bloggy stuff in a sidebar the better I say! Decorate your bloggy house however you choose and that's what the mute button is for on the computer for goodness sakes! I think my music starts automatically... but I haven't thought too much about it :o)! I love visiting you Tori, you rock!

Does Bella ever really love Jacob for more than just a friend? I thought this was supposed to be a love triangle, but for where I am at now in book 3, there seems to be no contest.

Jenny said...

I like the music, I just keep my volume down in case Peaches is sleeping when I'm blogging! lol

Put as much in the sidebar as you want! It just gives people more to look at! :o)

I LOVE YOUR SIDE

Yeah, so I READ the first one wrong: "Do you think having music play automatically on my (I didn't read the "my part") blogs is annoying?".
I love all your music Tori, we be twins, twins who love the exact same music :)
I love your sidebar! And your blog in general.

When I surf I have my own tunez I'm listening to. So it makes it inconvenient to have to find a blog's player to turn off their music.
BUT I'm willing to do it if I love the blog.
And I never turn yours off, your music is always right on the money.

Dana said...

My 2 cents on this is that if you like it that is all that matters. If it bothers someone else then they don't have to visit!

aubrey said...

i say if you like it, do it! i love your blog as it is!

aubrey said...

p.s. today i met another fellow jacob lover...

S said...

Now that wasn't very annoymous was it! Hey I like music but I wanna be able to turn it on and off. It wakes the baby sometimes, other times it makes her dance. Shake a boota!
If you would name names we could call them names:) LOL

Tori :) said...

The music can be turned off on the sidebar under "Tori's Song of the Day." Just click pause.

Evil Kitty said...

Evil Kitty thinks there should be a picture of Evil Kitty on your sidebar!

Evil Kitty said...

Also Evil Kitty doesn't think there are too many pictures on your sidebar. Evil Kitty wants to hook up with that stray wolf at the top.

I love your blog just the way it is!! It is no big deal to turn off someone's music if you don't like it or whatever. The only thing that gets me is when I have had my volume up loud listening to something else that was quiet and then WHAM! the music starts. This happens at various blogs, not just yours. Again, it is no big deal to just turn it off, or down. It just scares me. You should see me jump!

Kayelyn said...

Like Amanda said- If I have been playing something loud then sometimes I jump really high. But it sure wakes me up. If I'm not in a music mood then I push mute. Yes, sometimes that really happens. Weird.

Anyway, My vote is don't change a thing. It's your blog and there is a pause button and the computer mutes and I LOVE your side bar. Who ever heard of too much crap in a side bar? That's just nonsense.:D

Don't change a thing!

NOBODY said...

So, I agree with PJ, it's your blog you can do what you want. That's my first and strongest opinion.

Our speakers our broken so we have to use headphones, but in general, music startles me, regardless of the type or coolness. And if there's a video or I have several pages open at the same time, finding the music to turn it off can be annoying.

I put music on mine and then it started to bug me. :) So I think I might just be curmudgeonly about music.

Final opinion: Do what you want, I'm still comin' back!

Lauren said...

I love everything about your blog...it has your personality in it! You are so awesome!!

omar said...

My speakers are off 99% of the time (when I'm not intentionally using them), but the times I do leave them on accidentally, I usually get startled by music that auto-plays, then turn the speakers off.

The sidebar, I have no problem with that. Though I'll admit to being a bit disturbed by the dog that follows my mouse cursor. But if it's any consolation, I'm not as disturbed by that as I am by Super Happy Girl.

Annie said my blog music gets her moving while she cleans her house. That's reason enough to keep it on.

A Little Revolution said...

Hey, on the odd occasion you have bad music taste, I just hit mute. Lazy fools who don't know where their mute buttons are should just learn and quit their yapping! Bring back the music!
