Audio, Step-By-Step to Your Blog


In order to upload audio to a WordPress blog you need to do a few things.

 

Step One: Upload the audio from whatever device you used into your computer. Make sure you know where your audio files have been sent.

 

Step Two: Convert the audio file to an mp3 file. To do this, you may use Switch. Switch is a free program that can be downloaded here.

 

Step Three: Edit your audio in audacity, which can be downloaded for free here. Once you audio is ready for the public, save it, and remember where you put it.

 

Step Four: Ourmedia.com is a website that allows people to upload there own media and publish it. Once you create a username and password, you need to click on the upload tab at the top of the page. Also, to be able to complete the next step, you need to create a membership here. Once you have created a membership, you may proceed to the next step.

 

Step Five: Download and create and account with spinXpress here. Once the download is complete, open spinXpress and click on Publish in the left-hand column. This will set you up with step-by-step instructions to get your audio hosted by ourmedia.com.

 

Step Six: When the Ourmedia Publisher window is finished uploading your audio, it will prompt you to click Next. Once you click Next, another screen opens that contains two URL’s, both of which your audio can be reached on the internet. However, the first link that starts with http://www.ourmedia… is more confusing than the second link, which starts with http://www.archive…. Select the second link for easier access to the audio.

 

Step Seven: Locate the audio box on the website that spinXpress has relocated you to. Press the triangle to hear your audio. It should play!

Step Eight: Write your blog as you would normally, and when it comes to linking someone to your audio, highlight the word that will lead people to your audio, insert the URL link that contains your audio box and voila audio link to your blog!

It may seem difficult, but if I can do it, anyone can!
