Bandcamp —

— did not ask for anything of enormous significance when I signed up for it … yet … nor did it try to link up with FB. The process was much neater than I’d anticipated. Now, I have to dig around and find out how to set things (what’s my return policy? Jeez, I don’t know), how to accept payments, etc. etc. etc. Since I’ve only just started recording, it will be a while before things are in place over there, but the stress involved in waiting to figure out the technical junk before I absolutely had to — and the fear that someone else would take the name — convinced me to go over there and plant my stake in the ground now rather than later. It took about seven seconds.

Anyhow, I’m sure they have a sort of Bandcamp 101 FAQ up there for artists, so I’m off to learn more at some point.
