Or their fans anyway.
Just for the hell of it, I decided to post on The Donnas message board at Atlantic Records and tell them the deal with '100 CDs For 100 Bloggers' and see what they thought of it. As you can see, most think it's a great idea, with one noticable exception. (On a totally unrelated note, Chris I hope you read this before you write-up your MMM column on SoaP, because apparently the buzz over this movie did NOT come from bloggers. Whew glad we avoided that slip-up.).
But I do think it's interesting to note the comments, and you can almost tell just from the responses, the posters that understand how the blogosphere works, and those that don't. I think back to this time last year, when I had no clue. I hate to say that I bought into every media stereotype, and honestly thought it was nothing more than teenagers bitching about their ex boy/girlfriends. Now I kick myself for waiting so long to join this space. If you aren't a blogger, you really have no idea 'what the deal' is, or why you should care.
Which likely explains why so many companies are in no hurry to target bloggers in their promotions.
BTW I contacted The Donnas through MySpace, and sent an email to their manager asking for an interview and comments on my '100 CDs For 100 Bloggers' idea. No response from either. Guess I got no pull like JD does ;)
