A couple of days ago I got a trackback notification from a website I hadn’t heard of before called CMWired. At first, when I visited the site, I noticed they had completely copied the content from my recent review of Christine Evans. My first thought was it was a new splog, which would have been a little bit unusual for a splog completely devoted to Christian music. That would be ironic to say the least.
However, as I browsed through the site more, I noticed they merely included my review as a well documented and visible source back to the Christian Music Fan site. I determined that I’d do some more browsing and see what they were all about.
It turns out they’ve got a really great site going and it’s loaded with information about Contemporary Christian Music news. They highlight and feature various stories from a plethora of Christian Music web sources everywhere.
The following day, I received an email from Kevin McNeese who started the CMWired website:
Last week, we released the attached press release to over 1,500 Christian media outlets as we begin to announce the arrival of CMWired.com. Started in August of 2006, the site has been in the building process as we have added over 1,000 interviews, reviews, videos, eCards, contests and articles about everyoneâ€™s favorite Christian artists.
After spending a good amount of time on the website and reading the e-mail from Kevin, that’s all it took for me to know this was a great new site to feature here on our website as well. You’ll find it in our Links section on the right-sidebar. I look forward to good things in the future from Kevin and this website. Keep up the great work and let’s keep the CCM music flowing.
