It's a quest... to stop music on blogs.
To be more specific, music on blogs is fine... but I think it shouldn't play automatically.
Players should start IF the person looking at the blog wants to listen and hit the play button.
I know, one point of a blog is that you can do whatever you want and if someone doesn't like it, they don't have to read it - or in this case, listen to it - but I'll be surfing along quietly and all of a sudden music will start blasting out of my computer.
And no, I don't want to turn off the sound just in case I come across music. I keep it on for notifications and stuff.
So this makes me sound old and grouchy - but from a web design perspective, it's amateur-ish to have music playing for no reason... and you can keep the players, just use ones that don't start until the reader wants them to.
Come on, I know someone else feels like this - can't we start a movement?
I don't want to seem grumpy, so I will also give you this picture of a blizzard I was caught in the other day while walking the dog.
