Just Life

A Good Start.

…finally. It seems like ever since I started listening to books (and podcasts about books), I’ve had less and less music in my life. I miss it; last year I set an intention to get “more music” into my life. It wasn’t very successful. When we setup Alexa earlier this summer I tried again with Amazon Music. I found a few playlists and stations I enjoyed, but it still didn’t click.

And then I spent two weeks with Sara and saw how much she used and enjoyed Spotify (just like many of y’all have shared). Today I finally got myself started.

In addition to joining Spotify Premium (and telling Alexa about it – which was surprisingly easy), I also suspended my Audible membership (credits have been piling up now that we’re using Overdrive so much), so I’m actually saving a few dollars a month.

Now I need to start exploring the music! If you have playlists you love, would you please share them with me? My username on Spotify is mere2007. Thank you!!

    The car is about the only place I get to listen to music and if the top is down I can't seem to get past the Sirius 80s station! I have dabbled in the Blend station on occasion.

    I don't have any terrific playlists, but I made a few based on favorite songs that tend to be artist-specific. I was going to share one or two with you, but I'm not sure what your taste is in music. I'm readknit if you want to take a look and see if I have anything you might want to listen to. I really like Spotify's Time Capsule, Discover Weekly, and Release Radar playlists; I always find something new and interesting when I listen to them (and then add the good stuff to my own playlists).

    I use Apple Music, for the most part, in the house. And I almost always listen to Sirius radio in the car. So I'm not much help with Spotify. But music in the house is a great thing! 🙂

    how exciting to be using spotify! I listen to podcasts mostly and I only read physical books or ebooks. My husband listens to so much music that I am a second hand listener so I don't seek out extra music 🙂 ha ha ha.

    I still play my own CDs…old fashioned I feel. It's that or the radio (community station). I've heard the Coffeehouse playlist and agree with Vicki.
