MY TOP 30: Year 3 Posts of ALL-TIME!
15. Boy + Kite 101X Win
The Year 3 Number 15 spot goes to a post that just went live last month on Thursday, August 18, 2011. It was an informational post recounting a press release I received regarding ATX band, Boy + Kite. They won a contest hosted by local radio station, 101X. They won a spot on the Toadies’ Dia De Los Toadies fest and paid-for production for 3 new songs by the Toadies’ record label, Kirtland Records. I also included a stream of their song, “Think in Stereo.” We congratulated them on their win.
Now that we are at the half-way point with both countdowns, I want to reiterate that these are not MY personal TOP 30 posts; they are based on the internal WordPress stats for both site locations. In other words, rankings are based on how many hits each post received. So, that’s not about me. That’s about how many visitors a post got. Candidly speaking, it’s also about how aggressive an artist and/or their reps were about cross-promoting and cross-linking their particular interview or story.
I also want to say that I’m very excited that so many El Paso and Austin artists have made a showing on both countdowns. I do pride myself on being a national and international site, but it does mean a little more when they are from Texas. El Paso is my hometown and I do live in Austin, after all.
