Do Not Use the HashTag if…

Do not to use the #febooary tag if you are NOT responding to the Febooary daily prompt. Use the #audio_blo hashtag instead.

The prompts are meant to challenge the participant to think about the given prompt first. Secondly, to record a daily response to that prompt. This is a challenge for 21 days of the month of February. The prompts are meant to stimulate conversation, to engage participants to discussing their opinions, their life experiences and any thing else that the prompt might trigger them to share. The challenge may also encourage & support the participant to overcome the fear of hearing their own voice, overcoming  the fear of actually recording audio. Read What is Febooary?

Please do not make the prompts anymore complicated than necessary. Have fun with it.

Your listeners can learn more about you. Perhaps this challenge may even provide new friendships, new followers, nee experiences using audio, using apps etc.

When I first participated in this challenge, I wasn’t very involved the AB community. However I finished the challenge with several new friends that I still have to this day!

If you want to record daily audio without using the given prompt please consider using the #audio_blo tag instead. That hashtag is for non daily prompts in addition to the non-mandatory prompts that are provided. Check out Audio_blo

Good Luck in the completion of the Febooary Audio Challenge.

ChirpAloud [Review]

One of the followers of Febooary on Twitter is Chirp Aloud, a free web app. The web app is a very simple voice recording site. There are no bells or whistles with this free site.

There are simple instructions of

  1. Start
  2. Record
  3. Submit

However, I found it difficult to use. Probably because my stuff was not working properly.

I had issues with the statement of “Wait for the File Preview to generate before Submitting your Chirp!” Not once did I see any form of uploading or hourglass or indication of the processing of a file. The only place to type anything is the tag line. A person can type up to 10 tags per audio.

What I did notice about this free web app was…

  • No uploading files
  • No specific record time stated
  • No member profile page. However there is an option to register with the site
  • No smart phone apps available
  • No playback button, so that you can listen to the audio prior to submission

There is no main page to find other members. No way of listening to other audio. It’s just a record page. There is no about page, no help page.

The idea is cool. ChirpAloud is just floating out there in cyberspace. If anyone does successfully complete an audio please let me know. I would like your opinion on it. Another things I noticed that on their Twitter feed there is no mention of anyone using their free web app. I searched for hashtags, but found nothing to connect to this site. Looks like this might be a dead-end site. Chirp Aloud is a product of SeriouslyWeb.com
