Using Audio Boo

I signed up for an account with Audioboo a couple of years ago, I did a couple of boos and then forgot all about using it. This would have been because I was heavily into podcasting and very busy with creating 30 to 60 minute audio podcasts for Mac 20 questions and the Answer 20 Questions websites. A couple of days ago I got back into the idea of using Audioboo due to making a connection with a journalist called Christian Payne – Documentally. I heard him being interviewed on the Guardian Tech Weekly Podcast talking about the technology that he keeps in his bag to be able to do his live blogging. In terms of the software that he was using, Audioboo was one of his favourites.

What is so good about Audioboo?

If you are using a free account you can create Audioboos of up to 5 minutes in length and for audio live blogging that is just about enough. What is good about it is the fact that you can also add a photograph and have the GPS coordinates included in the data for your Audioboo. It would be quite nice if there was also the possibility to add very short videos in the same way that Twitter have introduced the application called Vine. In any case, when I create an Audioboo and post it, it also creates a tweet on Twitter. Not only that, but it also sends a new post to a blogging website. This particular blog post on NoStylus was created automatically by the Audioboo. This is all well and good but it is necessary to go into the blog site afterwards and actually create some text to go with the audio.

Great to be using Audioboo again

So I have started this series of Audioboo podcasts and the thing that I will be working on is based upon a character in the book of “Game of Thrones” who, each day in the story, had to report back at the Temple, three new things that she had learned each day. I have decided that would be very good to use as the basis for this use of Audioboo. I plan to create one of these each day. I will create the script for it, or at least jot down a few ideas and then most times record the audio while I am walking the dog during the afternoon. She has to be walked everyday and creating while walking is an efficient use of my time.
