Audio Blogs; do they exist?
October 2, 2011 4:28 AM   Subscribe

Hello Mefi, I've recently discovered SoundCloud (!!!1) and its mobile application. Since, I'm trying to figure out a way to make use of it for a blogging platform. Say, random street-reports, or such. Do you know any Audio Blogs that don't deal with music, but with verbal audio bits? Reporting of some sort? Thanks!

It's called podcasting, and there are thousands of them.

I'm not talking about podcasting; more of a random reportage genere.

I dunno, but just thought if not it would be possible to do use a video blog and have blank visual.

This is a bit where radio folks are moving. Check them out; they're working on a new project.

AudioBoo might do what you want: it's a platform for recording audio and posting it to Twitter, blogs, etc. It can also be integrated into WordPress pretty easily.

You can set up a tumbler blog so that you can call in and leave voicemails on it.

Or you can post directly to Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook from the Soundcloud iPhone/Android app. There's probably a way to automatically generate posts in other CMSs based on your Soundcloud uploads, but I can't work one out at this very moment.

Several of the running podcasters do it. They'll record quick soundbites while out on a run or just after a race and then share them to a blog or Facebook.
