If you love music and love being online, but you don’t want to have to pay to listen to your favorite songs, enter Blip.fm, the social Internet radio station that lets you listen to any song for free. What’s more, with Blip.fm you’ll have access to millions (yes, millions!) of songs to create your own free Internet radio station or listen to the stations created by others. You can even become a DJ of sorts to share your radio casts of streaming MP3s with your friends on your favorite social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.

Before you can share your free DJ station with your Tumblr followers, you need to create a Blip.fm account by visiting www.blip.fm .

The welcome page, shown in Figure 10-3, asks for your DJ name and e-mail address to sign up for an account. Then, after you’re registered, you can cruise around the site to find the music you’re interested in hearing. You can then generate as many music “blips” as you like to share on Tumblr.
