How to Rip Music from a CD to a Computer
Things have sure changed! Folks can only play a CD in the car - fun to have tunes but actually the worst place to really listen. How many times have I offered my latest in friendship to hhear "I cant play a CD!" I tried to give Bandcamp downloads for reviewers and friends - a surprising number never downloaded (maybe too old to figure out how) but I like Bandcamp's no BS approach, good website player/interface and pay-what-you-like approach. The Facebook crowd are definitely not music buyers, like so many these days they say "Oh I never buy music, just stream." FB itself - definitely ready for a new networking platform. Steem, anyone?

The CD is going extinct. One has to go no further than a nearby sidewalk and see that almost all passerbys are listening to music on their iPods/MP3 players. Very few, if any, will have a portable CD player.
I realy do think you covered the absolute basics, but I think you should have talked some about advertising. I completely agree that building awareness about a new release through facebook or Twitter helps, don't underestimate the power to set aside some money for advertising. The more people have heard of you, the more they are likely to see you live and purchase your album (or even just tell other people about you). Make up posters to put in establishments for traffic to see. Your best chances are with privately owned shops that you frequent and who you are friendly with. Ask out of state friends to do the same for you. Take out some ads on indie music sites that have decent traffic. Make facebook ads which have been known to be hugely succesfull when it comes to marketing things.

I would also add to this list valuing your CD at the cost of manufacturing not the cost of creating. I've see many bands price their CD at $5 (or even as low as $1) under the theory that CDs cost "only" 75 cents per unit to manufacture. This price point, however, assumes your songwriting, instrument playing, singing, mixing, editing, mastering and arranging has no value. I know a lot of artists that forget to pay themselves. If the lead singer is also a talented music engineer, it would be a mistake to assume this "savings" should be passed along to the customer, thus penalizing the singer for being multi-talented. If you are confident your music better than the bubble gum pop artists on the radio, then why sell your CD for less than theirs?

@Sean: Okay, I schooled myself on the difference between duplication and replication. I also discovered that, fortunately, you don't need a replicated disc to sell on Amazon (which is necessary to getting your music on Pandora). They have a service they use called CreateSpace which allows you to upload your files in digital format, and they press your CD on demand. If you want to submit your stuff as a CD, they actually require the CD to be in CD-R/duplicated format.
