As you know (by reading this blog) a blog is an ongoing online diary-style site typically posted with the most recent entry at the top. Audio blogging is where you simply create an MP3 file (which is a sound file that computers can read) and place it on your blog for others to hear. (Video blogs — also known as vidblogs or vlogs — are very similar but use video instead of audio).
Audioblogger (http://www.audioblogger.com/) allowed users to create and post MP3 file without any technical knowledge by offering a phone number that users could call where they could simply talk. That call was recorded and transferred into an MP3 format and posted on the user's blog.
Okay, that was a long description just to tell you this…
Audioblogger.com is closing its doors as of November 1st.
Blogging is a great way to connect with your customers and audioblogging is quick and convenient, especially for those who don't like to type. If you have a blog and want to try audioblogging, don't despair, audioblogger.com isn't the only company. Try http://www.hipcast.com/.
Tomorrow I'm going to talk more about this closure and put it into the perspective of the web itself.
