Summer Mix-tape (CD) Exchange!

Buddy and Hank were so good at posing today!
Hi guys! Now, I don't know about you, but I love a good mix-tape. Granted, my mixes are usually done digitally or on CDs these days, but still, fun! There's something so great about spending time carefully picking out songs and putting them all together to create a perfect mix.

A few weeks ago, I shared A Playlist for a Hot Summer Day here on Ladyface Blog. Then a couple weeks later, Juni posted a great mix-tape CD that she had put together on her blog, Hej Juni, and it got me to thinking, how fun would it be to do a mix-tape cd exchange through my blog!

So I'm doing it! I hereby announce the Ladyface Blog Summer Mix-tape (CD) Exchange!

If you are interested in participating, send an email to me at ladyfaceblog@gmail.com or comment on this post with your email address by Friday August 2nd letting me know you want to participate! Then, I'll draw names, and email you to let know who you'll be sending your mix to. From there, you can email your recipient to get their mailing address and get started on your mix-taping! You can mail your mix whenever it's ready, but let's shoot for August 9th so the anticipation isn't too much, because, guys, I'm going to be really excited.

And hey! If you're a blogger, feel free to post the track list to your blog so you can share it with all of us!
Are you guys pumped? I'm pumped.

I look forward to seeing who wants to participate!

Til next time!

-Becca (and Buddy and Hank)

    2. I won't participate ONLY because I honestly don't have good lists. All my music is geared towards my runs lol It's boring and I would be embarrassed to share it hehe But I can't wait to see what others come up with ♥

  3. This sounds interesting, but how would we know what TYPE of music to do? Can we list some sort of genre ideas with our information? Like, "I prefer this and hate this" kind of thing?

    1. Hi April! In the spirit of sharing, I was hoping to keep the genre open, but if you want to participate and there are things you like more than others you can certainly talk it over with the person you'll be trading with!

  4. First off, I thought I'd started following your blog, but I guess I forgot to click on the follow you button. I apologize as I really do want to follow your blog!

    I think this is a great idea, though I'm afraid I'm out of the mix tape/cd making business. My burner is dead. But boy did I ever used to make mix cds! ALL of my cds are mixes made by me and they're all from high school and college and listening to them just takes me back. One of the first things my boyfriend ever did for me was make me a real mix tape...on cassette! This was in 2006 and I thought he was just soooo cool for doing that lol. It was pretty hard to track down my walkman so I could listen to it.

    Finally, thanks for reading my super negative summer post!!! lol. I read it again and it was just too negative so I rewrote it. I don't want to alienate anyone because everyone loves summer, but it's so hot!!!! Just remember, you read the original lol.

    1. Haha, that's ok, Mabel!

      Too bad! It would be fun to have you participate! If you feel like it, you could always make a Spotify playlist to share with people!

      And of course! I can fall into a negative space myself, so I totally get it. And hey, summer in Florida is worth complaining about, I'm sure!

  5. Oh! This is a marvellous idea! I used to do mixed tapes all the time when I was a kid. I used to sit in front of the radio waiting hours for my favourite songs to play so I could record them... and the radio dj always talked on top of the beginnig and the end of the song. hahahaha! You can count me in. My email is anna.into@gmail.com

    I also must say, that I really like your blog. And I'm in love with your cats! They are soooo cute and very photogenic :) You can take a look at my dear Mr. Dostojevsky (Fedja the cat) in my blog :http://elakepaiviaodotellessa.blogspot.fi/ (I'm from Finland and my blogs name is Eläkepäiviä odotellessa which means Waiting for retirement days (because I cant' wait to be an old lady who has all the time in the world to knit and read great books and so on...

  6. This is such a good idea! I'm definitely interested and I've been planning on adding a playlist to the blog in the near future already. They are just so much fun and I feel like they share a lot of your personality with your readers.
