The day has come where you can now blog with us! If you’re an artist on IYR Artists, we’re excited to offer the next feature of our June 2020 rollout. We mentioned in our big June 2020 announcement that we would be rolling out a couple extra features throughout the month, and this is the next part of the #June2020 update rollout.
“Artist Blogs” has been added to the main menu of IYR Artists. And it’s now up to the artists to write blogs to populate the blog section with their stories.

We have also updated the Artists Portal to make it easy for artists to submit new blog posts as well as edit draft posts and published posts. These posts will integrate with IYR Artists profiles – and be displayed on all profiles that have blog submissions.

We are so excited to launch this next part of #IYRArtists and the #June2020 Update Rollout. Artists Blogs are open as a public beta and we can’t wait to read the stories shared by our artists, and we’re sure our listeners & readers feel the same. This is just another step forward in making the best platform for artists & creators, one more step towards making itsyourradio truly your radio.
Public BETA for IYR Artists Blogs starts today. We hope that our artists embrace this addition to the platform, as it’s one more way to connect with their listeners. You must have an Artists/Agency account with at least one profile to create blogs, the same restrictions that are in place to submit music. Anyone with a free standard IYR Network account can comment on these blog posts & interact directly with the artists! Once again, we’re very proud and happy to be able to offer these services free of charge to artists and creators everywhere.
