I have my own website which is all about music and this other friend of mine has his own music website as well and him and I have merged our companies together. But my question is how does merging 2 different companies into one work?

I have never done something like this before so this is all new to me and I don't quite understand it. Like for one I had to change my site name to the company name so I no longer go by what my site was once called and I dislike that.

I just got a bad feeling about this whole ordeal.

You should have looked into this long before you did this ... big mistake.

did you both write up a formal business plan on how things were to go? Did your site have a following? Did you create some kind of brand that customers would have come to? So many things to think about.

Could you both rethink this and have a corporate identity that allows you both to operate seperate entities under the same roof. Take Ingersoll Rand. They own lots of companies that all have their own site. All the sites are tied together allowing people to visit the other sites, with links so to speak. Still each site stands on its own.

I talked to the guy about this and he explained to me what he meant by merging the 2. For instance the magazine he has will have a tab for my site and my site will have a tab for his magazine. And we just say we work together as a team with each other's companies.
