Voice Blogging – The Next Logical Step in Blogging

Blogging is undoubtedly the best way to reach out to your audience and create an impact. However, most bloggers detest the enormous amounts of typing that is necessary to maintain a blog. A simple solution to this problem is voice blogging, which means that now you can record and post your blogs onto your blog sites in your own voice, without really having to type. All you require is a voice enabled feature on your computer along with speakers and you are ready to voice blog. More often than not, people are excellent speakers and it is easy for them to share their thoughts orally than in writing and voice blogging is an excellent tool for such people.

There are two basic ways in which you can create voice blogs. Firstly, you record your message onto your computer and then post it onto your blog site. Alternatively, there are several social networking sites, where you call their allotted number to leave your blog message, which is then posted automatically onto your blog.

Voice blogging has its pros and cons, both of which have to be weighed before using this medium for reaching out to your clients. Primarily, this concept is truly easy and anyone who wants to blog can do so easily, even when on the move as all you have to do is call, record and post. Searching voice blogs is easy as they use the voice XML, however, ensure that you mention the exact term that denotes your blog as this makes searching easier.

One of the major disadvantages of this medium is the extensive nature of the content. In other words, there is so much content available on the internet that the probability of search engines finding your content and ranking it high is really difficult. In addition, there is no check on the content that is being uploaded, which increases chances of irrelevancy of content.

Moreover, while recording and posting your blogs cost no money, it could be expensive to call a number to post your blog, especially if you have to call long distance. Lastly, the constant advances in technology ensure that video blogging will soon overtake voice blogging, making the latter redundant in the future.

Irrespective of whether or not this concept picks up momentum and really succeeds, it is important to note that, as of today, this is a great tool to interact with your audience, which you can use even when on the move.

    Voice blogging is a great way to get your ideas out there without the hassle of having to type. But it also has some draw backs to it that you didn’t mention. I am a veteran of http://snapvine.com one of the very first voice blogging sites developed. When you are in a social community where everyone uses voices, you encounter alot of problems among the people. Voice is a very powerful tool when it comes to a social network and you will have problems arise with people having a difference of opinions and arguements break out. People will rally clicks together to gang up on the ones they want to get rid of. That was just the tip of the iceberg on Snapvine. I am almost positive that’s why WhitePages.com decided to do away with the site because of all the drama that came from within the clicks that had formed. If you do decide to create a voice blogging site, keep this in mind and have a site moderator online at all times so things like that won’t take place.
