One of the components of today’s blogging challenge is to use an element that is new to me. I’ve learned that I can embed tracks from Spotify or Rdio into my blog for my readers listening pleasure. (If you are a Spotify user click the play the button, the music will start playing in the Spotify Desktop Player or Web Player.
