Being a music blogger isn't a hard job. You write about something you love and people read about it. Simple, right? You know what makes music blogging (and most things in life) easier? When all of those pieces work together. See, this is a reciprocal exchange, with artists helping bloggers so that the blogger in turn help the artists. Yet, I can't tell you how many times a day I bang my head against my desk or this Mac at some of the sheer nonsense that ends up in my inbox. Nothing that would ever make me stop what I'm doing, but it's much easier when all of the ducks are in a row.
I hate to sound like I'm bitching, but this is something that I do seven days a week, and these are the odd occurrences that truly annoy me to no end. Here are a number of ways that artists, labels, artist managers, and PR people annoy music bloggers.
