Those fans where some of the most relentless, hungry and addicted live music fans I saw all year long. And when I think of those fans reaching out for that bass guitar, I wonder if that’s what you looked like while you read these 35 top Live Fix posts of 2010.
During 2010 we covered music festivals, shared concert fans stories, explored social media, talked with mobile app makers and social site developers, experimented with virtual concerts, asked artists about their favorite shows and wondered why you love live music so much.
And Boy Did We Learn A LOT.
For me, I’ve always had a strong vision for Live Fix.
And for the most part our community her e at Live Fix has always been driven by testing, experimenting and finding out what works, what doesn’t and discovering what resonates with you the most.
And part of that daily testing and experimenting involves writing posts that take off and writing posts that die just as soon as I click “publish.” It’s all part of the music blogging process.
And as you’ll see, this year’s list of top posts is expected and showed me what I did know about what you love to read.
But then you completely surprised me too.
What Does It All Mean?
This list is a mix of posts that I spent hours on, and posts that I spent a mere matter of minutes writing and sending off for you to enjoy.
Many of these top posts, I simply wrote because I wanted to write them for my own pleasure.
And then again, some of these posts I wrote after getting your feedback and carefully considering it as I made editorial tweaks throughout the year.
This One’s A Bit Different: How’d We Make This List?
Instead of focusing on the fans, like we did with our Best Concert Fans Stories of 2010, to compile this list I used a combination of data including Google Analytics, blog comments, Retweets, Facebook Likes, Email Feedback and Newsletter stats.
And as 2011 begins, I will also continue to test and tweak, consider the State of the Blogosphere (a study that Live Fix participated in by the way), and work in a bit of what blogging scientist Dan Zarella suggests.
What Do Concert Fans Like To Read About The Most?
That’s a question I’m always aiming to answer and 2010 definitely put me closer to the bulls-eye.
That said, this list is an interesting mix that tells me that you do love to learn and read about:
- Crazy, inspiring and creative concert fans
- Emerging trends in social media and live music
- New concert mobile apps
- Exciting secret shows
- Awesome live music contests
- Helpful PR tips for contacting music bloggers
I choose that number because after a certain point the pattern of what you loved the most became obvious, and it only made since to share with you the top 35.
So without further ado, ranked from1-35, these were the most read Live Fix posts/stories of 2010.
If you have a favorite post that’s not on this list, or you have a topic that you’d like to see us cover more of in 2011, let us know and post your ideas and suggestions in the comments below.
Thanks again for being a part of the Live Fix Community and we look forward to seeing you at the show in the New Year!
