Last year, to celebrate our one year anniversary, we made this Blogwave Summer mixtape where we asked a bunch of bloggers to send us a summer song and then we turned it into a mix. It went so well that we decided to do it again this year to celebrate our second anniversary. Well, the second anniversary isn’t technically until next week, but I have no patience when it comes to anything so it’s nearly impossible for me to sit on a completed mix like this for a week and a half. So, uh, happy Monday?
This type of mix is great for a couple of reasons. First of all, since the only theme is summer (Techincally, I asked each person to send me the song that they thought would be their summer jam this year) and summer means something different to everyone, you’re sure to get a nice and diverse mix of songs. But even more importantly, since I only picked one song on this mix, if you think it sucks, then you can’t really blame me. Isn’t it great how that works? But I don’t think you’ll really have much of a problem with any of the 23 songs on this mix. Yes, that’s right, 23 songs picked by 23 blogs (I’m sure you’ll recognize a good deal of names on the list) all wrapped into one mix that’s just under 65 minutes in length. My amateur skills mean that this isn’t really a mix, so much as it is a series of convenient spots for one song to stop and the next to begin. And sure, there are lots of janky/awkward song placements that just don’t make sense or work, but that’s the fun of DIY project, isn’t it?

Special thanks to all the blogs who participated. Check out the full list below. Could this possibly be the most impressive/awesome list of blogs to ever have participated in one project such as this? Probably. And thanks to Dev for sending me the cover image when I didn’t feel like looking for one and turned to the twitter for help. And thanks for continuing to visit us, even if you don’t.
