Are There Any Women Music Bloggers Out There?

10 years ago

Blogher member kperfetto asks this very important question.  And I'm happy to answer that yes indeed our very own BlogHer blogroll shows that there are.

So, in alphabetical order, allow me to provide you a sampler of the fine and fabulous music blogs on the Blogher blogroll...

ardenstreet is the blog "where music is your boyfriend" and where Connie has categories like "funny" "geeks" and "happy" so how can you resist.  And you'll never be able to resist once you visit and watch the ukulele rendition from a "mop-headed indie gal" of Britney Spears' "Toxic."

Amy runs the site Collected Sounds: A Guide to Women in Music where she has reviews, videos, business news and opinions and ramblings about a wide range of musical styles.

i rock i roll (a weblog) comes from a "20 something girl living in NYC, writes about music and other assorted stuff, originally from chicago, likes vodka tonics and the rapture. i'm not a music journalist, just a fan & also a dj"

The Improper Bostonian documents her Robbie Williams Journey noting such Robbie Williams news and observations as:

Wow, Robbie Williams records may have been flopping of recent, but his talent for grabbing hot women doesn’t seem to be faltering.

The Cocoa Lounge has been "paying tribute to beautiful black women in arts & entertainment" since 2000.  This fantastic, wide ranging site covers a great deal of musical ground from the (wonderfully) ridiculous - revisiting the awesome 80's hit "The Men All Pause" by Klymaxx - to the sublime - reminding us "Sassy Sarah Vaughn: Still Shining 60 Years Later"

And the final stop on our tour is the cleverly-named The Rich Girls Are Weeping which "is curated by super best friends Cindy Hotpoint & Pinkie Von Bloom."  What you'll find at their blog is:

Almost all of the content contained herein is dependent the vagaries of your hostess' weird tastes and whatever they're really into these days.

Check out a sample of their reviewing chops... for the recent release Our Love To Admire by Interpol rather than posting poor quality leaked samples in advance of the official release, instead they prepared a three part primer to the band's influences (including the aforementioned Sarah Vaughn).  Genius!  Part 1, part 2, part 3.

So who is your favorite woman music blogger? Add her in the comments!
