About This Blog
Greetings and Salutations …
“About” Page written January 1, 2006
My name is HARTLEY B. SINGER aka “HART”.
I was going to register my first name as a website, but http://HART.com was taken .. so was http://Hartley.com ..
>> I did manage to register http://callHART.com and http://1800HART.com though
I was unable to register the domain for my initials .. http://hbs.com .. as it was taken too
>> I did manage to register http://HBSMC.com which, is my business website HBS Management Consultants .. I thought that was great to be able to find a free 5-letter domain name, with your initials in it!
Obviously, I couldn’t register the domain http://singer.com … which has been around for a long time ..Well, D’oh! That really sucked! I think I would have really enjoyed owning that domain! I did manage to register a whole bunch of other names (some in use, some not in use) ..like http://HART-Empire.com – which is the current Blog Network coding you see in the sidebar, and other domains similar to my existing ones .. not so much to use, but to prevent others from using.
>> And I also managed to register http://The-Singers.com … and here you are now!
Welcome to The-Singers Blog
I’m sure all my relatives and people with last names of “Singer” have the same story .. the story of having a wooden sign with burnt etched lettering titled “The Singers” and used for the cottage, or fence or mailbox sometime during their lives. I am no different. We still have that sign and my parents even have a Neon light sign with “The Singers” in italic writing on it.
If that wasn’t enough, I can remember at least 5 different instances in the past 5 years that is either ongoing, or from a previous host that my immediate family (either my folks or siblings) had an EMAIL address that included “the-singers” as the first part of the email address.
It only seems fitting that I use http://The-Singers.com for something to honor ME or, my family!
BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT THIS BLOG IS ALL ABOUT
Sure – despite that it may be fitting to have this blog all about my family etc .. I already have a personal blog with over 1,000 pictures and about 300 MB of video files, that started with our Medieval Wedding August 31, 2002 .. at http://HARTandYVONNE.com ..
So this is how this http://The-Singers.com will be proceeding
* I am starting with my own musical taste and collection
* I am also looking at public resources like the Public Encyclopedia pages
* I hope to insert a sample of the music or maybe a video into each post
* Yes .. I think this site might be more geared to be a ‘Product’ blog, because with every post I plan to give the reader option of some of the CD albums that are available on either http://Amazon.com or http://Amazon.ca which, (surprise surprise) I am affiliated with both of them.
* And, Immediately after creating an entry for a band, or male singer or female singer .. I will setup another BlogLines.com RSS watchful eye on upcoming news or other important information that will come, as time goes on. I will post it all under the same category.
* I invite anybody with MUSIC sites or FAN CLUBS or other sites that you want to link post a link in the comments section of an entry .. If you have linked your site with mine, drop me an email to hart (at) petlvr (dot) com and let me know … I believe in reciprocal linking – for the most part.
PS: This blog will be a work-in-progress. I will not be secretly working to upload the thousands of great singers in history to these pages overnight. But I will be adding a few every day and hope to add a little dent by the end of each week. This way, in months and perhaps even years to come, this site may build up to be a great resource for all the great singers of all time! I hope you add our RSS feed to your Bloglines.com or other feed reading program and watch our progress as this site grows.
