Blogcasting—blogging with a twist
It all started when Jeri asked her son-in-law if he would read her blog and give her feedback. He said he didn’t have time to read, but if she recorded it for him, then he would listen. Natalie has also had the opportunity to listen to Jeri read to her grandchildren, and thought “I could listen to this”. She has the perfect voice for audio.
Also—to be honest—not everyone loves to read. Some people, such as Natalie, deal with Dyslexia. Others don’t have the time to sit down and read a blog. A lot of American’s have long commutes—so why not convert your blog to audio? Which led the ladies to this question: why not record all of Jeri’s blog posts to create a blogcast?
Podcasting can help broaden your reach
Creating a podcast—or in this case, a blogcast—is one of the easiest ways to broaden your reach. It’s a great way for the visually impaired to get exposure to your content. Not only can they hear it, but they can hear it in YOUR voice, with your unique tone and inflection. It speaks to your authenticity.
Natalie and Darla think the idea is genius. After all, who doesn’t want to broaden their audience? It should be every blogger’s goal to reach more people with their content. We live in a busy world and whatever can be done to connect with more people should be done.
Alright Wingnuts, it’s time to weigh in: Would you rather read a blog or listen to it?
