Back in August, I made the decision to return to blogging. I never expected to have the Fall season that I’ve been having and, so, voiceover has gotten in the way. But that’s no excuse! There are so many wonderful VO blogs out there (my two favorite are my friends and colleagues’ Bob Souer’s blog and Dave Courvoisier’s blog) that, in addition to being busy, I just couldn’t see myself adding anything to the mix that wasn’t already there.
So, until I can move Anthony Mendez dot com away from internet marketing and back to being just me, I decided to look for the laziest of Lazy ways to blog. I found posterous. Their claim was that I didn’t even have to sign up! All I had to do, was send an email to a specific email address, and they would post whatever I wrote in my email (the subject line as the headline and the body as the content.) To add to the laziness, if you sent them media (mp3, video, images, etc.) they will post those as well along with – if audio or video – the embedded player! I had to try it! And so I did.
Now, I can just take a picture on my Blackberry, attach it to an email, send it off to Posterous and BOOM! Instant blog post! Now, truth be told, there are certain advantages to signing up, but you don’t have to as long as you’re writing from the same email address.
I hope I have introduced you to yet another Lazy tool. With that said, the sad news is that The Lazy Voice-Over will end along with 2009. My intention is to create my official blog on AnthonyMendez.com
Enjoy the Holidays!
