(*) Putting your voice on your blog

I'm &%$#@! because I just spent about 15 minutes writing this post out - then lost it! Argh! However, let me outline it again, for those of you vaguely interested!

I saw this thing on someone elses' site - forgive me, but I just can't remember who's it was on! D'oh! Mine was just a trial-and-error thing that worked!

If you live in the USA, you can post audio to your blog from any phone. Just dial a number and speak. The audio will automatically be posted! It's here at Audioblogger.

Because I don't live in the USA, that thing won't work for me here in sunny Australia. Instead, I recorded a 'crappy' voice recording, uploaded it onto my free Geocities website, and linked to it from my blog.
  • Record voice using Windows Sound Recorder (or whatever your machine uses)
  • Upload file to remote internet host (I put mine on my Homepage that I've had for a few years' now.)
  • Link to WAV file thru your blog.
  • Thus: Hi Mal - wave file
If you don't have an external webhosting service (you should have one with your ISP account that came with your email service, with the people who provide your internet service), then I don't know how to put a sound file onto your blog! I've spent a few years stuffing-up webpages thru a process of pure trial-and-error learning - and I'm still in the dark as to how the whole HTML-thing really works!

I hate trying to be the whole computer geek guy - it's really not me! Argh! lol If none of this makes sense - fair enough! Tis a mystery to me, the whole finer points of website coding...

Maybe I should become a member of the "Dull Men's Club"? What do you think...?
(Thanx to Third Daughter for the link).
Have a laugh at what Uncle Bob gets upto this week! He's the clown/DJ?!?

Here's a challenge for today:

(A) First, recommend to me:
1. a movie
2. a book
3. a musical artist, song, or album

(B) I want everyone who reads this to ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want.

(C) Then I want you to go to your blog/journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends to ask you anything & say that you stole it from me.
(Thanx again Third Daughter! hahahaa!)
