Created & Updated My Personal Audio Blog

27 09 2009

Hello All,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend on this sunny Sunday afternoon we are having over here on the  east coast.

I’ll keep it short for today as to I want to get back outside and enjoy whats left of this beautiful day we’re having.

… So, just a quick update for now:

Over  the  past  few months, I’ve been testing several different blog platforms in an attempt to  find the most feature-rich, and user-friendly options available.   In doing so I’ve  ended up with several blog sites.  In an effort not to have  the  exact same content on each of  them,  I recently changed and updated one of them to an AUDIO ONLY blog site.

You can check it out and bookmark  it at: http://AudioBlog.BenjaminKee.com.

Take a listen and let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.

Also, please take the quick survey that I created on the right-hand column of the audio blog and tell me the topics that you would like to hear more about and I’ll do just that …. Create more audio posts discussing exactly what YOU want to learn on.

I hope you find it useful and informative.

Until next time,

Ben

PS.  Now get outside and have some fun! 😉

You know how you find that incredible Twitter app, use it a couple of times and then can’t remember where it was? Me too.
