I’ve started a little audioblogging experiment over on Chocolate and Vodka wherein I forsake the written word in favour of recording audio posts. I’m using Audioblog.com as my tool of choice and I am hoping to do nothing but blog verbally for the next week or so, although posting may be interrupted by a trip up to London.
My main reason for cutting out written blogging completely, except for excerpts, on Choclate and Vodka for this period is to force me to use the audioblog tool and to see whether I can get used to talking instead of typing. On the one hand, I currently feel terribly self-conscious recording myself whittering on, but on the other I fear that if I do get used to it the posts may end up as epic soliloquies that the blogging world may actually be better off without. Knowing how much I usually talk, this risk cannot be ignored.
Anyway, take a look at… I mean, listen to the experiment and feel free to leave comments. I’d love to know what you think of the audioblog experience - not necessarily the content, but the actual listening instead of reading part of it.
