I posted this to the blue last night, and it was (rightly!) deleted by Taz because of the self link (I should note that she gave me the chance to delete the self-link and I didn't want to). My question is, where is a good place to post it?

I apologize for forgetting about that rule. You'll see the self-link the last para. So, my question is, what's a good place to post it? Reddit's folk music categories don't seem to allow posts structured like this, with all the links embedded in the text etc; is there another site that would be a better fit? I wanted to keep the self-link in, as that was what was the impetus for writing the article and doing the research, and the only reason I write these folk music posts once every 4 or 5 years on the blue is that Mefi is sometimes missing a little ... I dunno, soul? maybe. Too much dry talk about world politics and science and technology, and dry bios, and nothing to tie it into individual human lives. So I wanted to keep that in to show how I was integrating the song into my life, and I didn't feel like it belonged in a comment (but that was a good idea, @Taz, so I appreciated it).
I'm really just wondering where a good place to put it is. I figure there must be some place with the right audience, since it garnered more favorites in 1 hour than anything I've ever posted had before.
