How to Turn Your Blog Into Audio

In some surveys, it is said that some visitors do not like to read articles published on blog sites instead, they like to listen them through MP3 or an Audio. Not long ago, I found the site that will help bloggers to turn their blogs into Audio. And this is free to sign up.

Before signing up, a blogger will see to it that all articles he published on his blog site are written in English language and he should confirm that he is the legal owner of the blog site. After that he can now proceed to register by telling Odiogo a bit about himself and his blog site by filling out the form with his approval that he is allowing the site to convert his blog site contents to MP3 or to Audio and then submit.

There are only two requirements needed to register with the site – they are:

  • The URL of his blog site
  • His email address

Then next, he has to wait at least one minute and he will receive a reply with instructions that he can now add the Odiogo Widget to his blog site. After he added the Odiogo Widget to his blog site – he can now start to play the audios of some of his articles published on his blog site like what I have done for My Star Articles blog site. Each article has its own Audio.

According to Odiogo history: The idea behind Odiogo came to Patrice its CTO when he was stuck in a New York underground and said to himself, “All this time wasted on the tube… If I only could use that time to read the hundred of news pages waiting for me on my PC…“. Odiogo makes Patrice’s wish come true. Odiogo’s mission is to provide innovative ways to distribute web content for consumption on the go, anytime, anywhere and on any device.
