Last week I received a question, via Twitter from Rob Ackerman, about how I’m adding audio recordings to the new sound blog I created this month, “Sounds of my World.” To answer this question, I recorded a twelve minute screencast showing these steps on my MacBook Pro laptop. Before sharing the tools I’m using to do this, I’ll point out (as I do in the screencast) a MUCH easier approach: Use email and a free Posterous.com website. That’s the method used by Australian educator Jess McCulloch on her sound blog, “Life Sounds Like This.”
The tools I’m using for this process (and describe in the screencast) include a WordPress blog, the free “Blubrry PowerPress Podcasting plugin” for WordPress, the free iTalk Recorder app for iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch, the PixelPipe iOS app uploading to Flickr, and free Switch software for audio conversions. Note the PixelPipe app was removed from the iTunes Store by Apple in 2010. Other apps and methods (described the in screencast) can be used to take a photo off an iPhone and share them as part of a blog post. Here’s the screencast!
