In response to customer demand(!), I’m currently experimenting with embedding audio files for the most recent blogs, so you get a double-whammy blog-stroke-podcast all in one hit.
These ‘podcasts’ are currently being voiced by the author using the limited audio-technology inherent in a desk-top computer, so the sound-quality is no better than the short-order professionalism with which they’re created.
You may also find these audio-clips in random locations within each blog, as I learn how to embed them into a consistent location on each page.
There are other plans afoot as well – nothing too drastic, but perhaps a refresh on the visual layout; more efficient links to social media and a few other tweaks, learnt as I go along. Perhaps when it’s all looking (and sounding) better, I might appeal to you to ‘share’ and ‘follow’ – as that seems the way to build readership and elbow my way into the upper echelons of successful blogdom.
And when time permits, if there’s positive feedback to the audio-clips, I’ll try to enlist the services of Stephen Fry, Jeremy Irons or Hugh Dennis to read for you (although that may be preceded by a quietly desperate Crowdfunding request in order to meet their fees.)
If all else fails, you’ll just get me – although I may invest in a better microphone. Oh, and I’ll also try to remember to turn my phone to silent whilst “on air”.
Thanks for listening!
