Adding Media to Your Site

I thought I was clever when I added a photo slide to my speaking site by using slide.com (http://www.sharynabbott.com/gallery.html). Then I learned how to put a Capture Box on my site (look at ezine.html) and I was truly excited. Then if you remember I discovered how to embed video on my site by loading the Flip Videos to MySpace.

And I know you all have a Twitter.com account, right? Well if not, please do, but, if you do, are you loading your Tweets to your Blog and website? The reason you want to do this is it will make the search engines see that there is new content loaded onto your blog and site on a regular basis. It drastically improves your rankings. So t hen I thought after all of that, “wow, I’ve really got it nailed”.

But it never ends, does it?

I had been trying to find an audio converter program I could purchase rather than paying a monthly fee and have the audios stored on someone’s site that might not be around in five years. Finally, I discovered ImpactWebAudio and it only costs $37 and is a one-time fee. It’s very easy to use, has six recording buttons to choose from and a full color spectrum for choice of colors so you can match your website scheme. (Example: BeYourOwnBossGuide about half-way down the page.)

You can use your computer to record small segments of audio and load them to your site and blog. You can also use the Sony IC Recorder ICD-SX57 which you can upload to your computer and use audacity.com (no charge) to create mp3 files to generate audios to let your followers know what you’re message is.

Have fun with it and remember, it’s one thing at a time, and I’ll try to stay one step a head of the technology for you!
