Writing About Music

Hello, recently I have been doing some research about Music Journalism. In particular, I am interested in Journalism about albums/artists in instrumental guitar music (Vai, Satriani, Morse etc.). One of the pieces of advice I saw often was about writing on the internet to get a foot in the door. I figured there were lots of similar musical fans on this website, so I was wondering if anyone could give me some direction to websites for blogging/reviews of this type of music. This is definitely NOT a probable career path for me, I am just curious, and I may not even write at first, just read others. Just looking for somewhere to start.

Thanks in advance
