CDBaby Buying Can Help ShyCloud.com!
I recently learned that I could help my musician friends sell their independently released CDs, while also helping ShyCloud.com at the same time! CDBaby.com, where many of my friends sell their CDs, has a Partner Program, which I've joined.
Now, if you go through one of the CDBaby.com links here to buy CDs by my friends (or anyone else!), you pay their standard price, the artists get their normal cut, and ShyCloud.com will get $1 per CD too, which will help us cover the many expenses that go into keeping this web site up and running!
CDBaby.com calls itself "a little CD store with the best new independent music." If you want to discover great indie recordings, this is an excellent place to look! Remember that ALL CDs you buy on CDBaby.com through one of our links will help ShyCloud.com! It doesn't have to be just CDs I list!
Please bookmark these links and use them to help ShyCloud.com whenever you visit CDBaby: CDBaby.com Home Page and CDBaby.com Search Page.
