Click To Client Now Podcasting!

As many of you have already noticed, there is a little box that says “listen now” under all blog posts.

This is thanks to a great free wordpress plugin developed by Odiogo. It takes less than 5 minutes to setup, and will turn all your posts into podcasts.

Go see the Click To Client Podcast page to get a feel for what it looks like.

I think this is a tremendous service because it gives you (the readers!) just one more way of enjoying the content here. What I don’t like about it is the “robotic” voice. (For those readers who were surprised and disappointed by the voice, I apologize!). Odiogo is currently working at adding REAL male and female voices that I am sure will be more pleasant sounding.

But, until then, it’s still a great time saving tool!

UPDATE. 12. 25. 2008 - While some of you guys found this to be a fun tool, others just did NOT like the artificial/robotic nature of the podcast. And since the community rules-you guys win. The plugin has been removed until they bring in some human voices. Merry Christmas!

    Dear Shama:
    What a great tip and “resourceful,” great-looking blog.

    This is something I’m going to check out right now.

    Best wishes

    Great looking blog – love it. Robotic voice – a bit creepy. And, why use it on short blog posts? I read the post much faster than listening to it. I guess the reason would be that I could download it. But, I read the post faster than I could have downloaded…

    Anyway, thanks for sharing a resource. It’s always good to hear of new tools out there we can use to be more productive.

    Matt and Roger – Enjoy! = )

    Lee Ann-

    Thank you so much. Yes, I know the robotic voice is a bit creepy, and I personally also read faster than I can listen. The reason I have it is to just give ONE more option to my readers.

    Some will prefer to read-like you and me! Others, won’t mind the robotic voice as long as they can listen rather than read.

    It’s just about more options! = )
