Listen up!

See the "Listen Now" button that's at the top of every post? It's Odiogo. I just installed the widget. The company uses the RSS feed to convert a text post into an MP3 so that you can listen to blog posts.

I saw this feature today on The Junk Drawer and installed it right away. (I like to jump right in sometimes and recklessly try new widgets.) Kathy wrote a hilarious introductory post titled Meet Phil that you have to go listen to.

I have to confess that when I just sampled my own post, it came across as far more dry than when I read it in my head. Not sure if I'm going to like that. Anyway. Check it out.


  1. Darn! This article is not available yet. I'll come back later. :-)

  2. Aww, its not working yet. I will have to come back and check it out. :)

  3. @geekmom and @monique -- I think it's busy still converting the rest of my blog, all 500 posts. However, the Chicago post is ready. That's the one that I think is far too dry, though (making fun of myself).

    I think I like it... but I want a female voice. I emailed them about it. :)

  5. @ Kelly, glad you emailed them too. They must have a woman voice. Besides, Phil needs a mate. Haley, loved your Puerto Rico post. He did a great job with that one!

  6. @Kelly -- I want a female voice, too. I'll have to figure out how to email them.

    @Kathy -- Yeah, at the very least, Phil needs a girlfriend. And thanks about the Puerto Rico post.


Hi! Feel free to leave a comment. You do your part, and I'll try to keep the conversation going.
