I made and audiobook out of Chris Brogan's Free eBook on Personal Branding too

Rob Blatt took Chris Brogan's free eBook on personal branding and made it into an audiobook.

I wanted to try the same for a couple of paragraphs of his eBook too.

Here's how I recorded the audio and posted it online:
1. Record audio with QuickTime Pro
2. Edit together with QuickTime Pro
3. Export as AIFF
4. Open with Final Cut Pro
5. Additional editing, add music bed
6. Export as AIFF
7. Open in iTunes
8. Convert to mp3
9. Upload to

It's probably more accurate to call it an audioparagraph. ;-)

You can listen to my audioparagraph version of the first section of Personal Branding for the Business Professional on That's where I hosted it.

Chris Brogan say, "I love it! This is great."

I'm also testing alternative embeddable flash players after reading, How to Embed MP3 Audio Files In Web Pages With Google or Yahoo! Flash Player.




I just found the code to put the player bloglines uses on the page.

    Adding an audiobook option to an ebook allows you to penetrate not only into someone's downloads folder, but potentially their personal media player or audio player application on their computer.

    It's a nice way to get your name out if you're accepting recording work too!

  2. Hi Rob,

    I was inspired by your audiobook to make this.

    NIce job.

    Since when did allow audio uploads? Always? Or do you have special access?

  4. Blip has always allowed audio uploads. :-)
