Today, Voices has reached a whole new level! I could be mistaken (and please correct me if I am) but I believe that Mason is the first Voices blogger to offer podcasts of his blog posts, which is very exciting. Well done Mason.
If you’re not familiar with this term, a podcast is essentially a digital media file which is downloaded via the internet for playback on an MP3 player or computer, but if you’d like a more detailed explanation check out Wikipedia.
Creating podcasts of your blog posts is a great way to increase the exposure of your blog and build your traffic. But don’t take my word for it! Check out this article on The Real Estate Tomato, which not only explains how podcasting can build your profile, but lists some very useful (and free) services. Using these services, you can create podcasts with minimal effort and if, like me, you can’t stand hearing a recording of their own voice, you’ll be happy, as they utilise a unique text to speech programme to convert your blog posts into podcasts!
These services might not work for you (see the comments on the article) or you may prefer to do your own thing, but either way, just have a read and check out the sites to see if podcasting is something you might like to introduce on your blog.
