Turn Your Blog Into A Podcast With Just A Plugin!
November 30, 2008 by Alaina Frederick
I am very excited about this new plugin I read about on Lynn Terry’s blog, ClickNewz. I have always wanted to have a way that my readers could listen to my posts. However the thought of having to sit and record each and every post has stopped me time and time again.
Well now with the free plugin from Odiogo I can turn my posts into a podcast.
All that is required is you sign up for a free account. Input your feed and put the plugin up on your blog. Then from there you will have a Listen Now button on each of your posts. Worried about your bandwidth? Don’t fret- they also will host the MP3’s on their servers. Do you have a crop of readers? You may also then quailfy to earn income using the free service as well. The service is compatible with any blog that offers a RSS feed-for example our beloved WordPress, Blogger, Typepad, and Overblog.
It is a little on the animated side and I honestly I felt like I was listening to an answering machine recording from the 1980’s. However, they are working on adding a number of different voices that you will be able to choose from. There will be male, female and difference accents. So you will be able to customize your podcast to be as close to your own voice or as different as you wish. This plugin seems like it will help take the world of blogging into a whole new generation- much like Revolution did for WordPress themes!
So go check out the information on this great FREE service- try it out on your own blog- and let us know how you like it!
