Arjan Writes Music

Arjan Writes Music is different from a majority of the other blogs I have discussed as it focuses on mainstream and popular music. This can help us with our comparison of the medium and content. Is the blog the best or an appropriate way to present the discussion of popular music? How does blogging change with the change in genre?

Although Arjan Writes focuses on popular music, it's format is closer to that of a blog based on amateurism and community than some of the other blogs which focused on "indie" music. This blog is similar to gossip blogs such as Dlisted.com and Perezhilton.com, based on their rising popularity and the strong voice of the author.
