Web Secret #90: Odiogo

There are only a handful of blogs I read faithfully, and one of them is the Online Therapy Institute Blog. As I was reading their most recent post, I noticed a button listen now. I pressed it and in a matter of seconds I was listening to a voice reading the post. I also had the option to download this instant podcast to my iPod or MP3 player.

Remember my delay of gratification issue? I HAD TO HAVE THAT FEATURE ON MY BLOG IMMEDIATELY!

So I dropped everything, and clicked on Odiogo - voice your content. Odiogo claims to "transforms blog posts into high fidelity, near human quality audio files ready to download and play anywhere, anytime, on any device."

And you know what? They deliver!

I entered my blog URL, an e-mail address, I followed a few instructions, clicked a few buttons and soon.....I had the listen now feature on MY blog!

Better yet, I even got a cool button that said "Subscribe To My Podcast", which allows my followers to subscribe to an audio feed of my posts.

My odiogo home page also enables my fans to stream my content, download individual podcasts from a list of my web secrets, and more...

A great blog feature, that's easy to install, is useful to my followers, and it works?

Pinch me - I must be dreaming.
