Listen To Blogs


"Listen to your favorite blogs, or turn any blog into a podcast using your own voice"


Have a million unread feed items in your reader? Tired of reading long texts in front of your macbook? At listentoblogs.com you find crowd-sourced podcasts of your favorite blogs. Recorded by bloggers, blog-fans and you. Here you can upload recordings of blog posts which people then can subscribe to with iTunes or their mobile phones. We accept many different audio formats and have no limits in filesizes. Make your blog available as a podcast asap!

The team was carefully orchestrated from the beginning and our roles were very clear. Henrik did backend and data, David templating and design and Eric jQuery, interaction design and overall über web knowledge. We focused 100% on code and worked only with open platforms like AppEngine, SoundCloud, & Twingly. This is what made it possible to build the service in 24 hours.

Our potential users are mainly people that read blogs but there is also an accessibility point of view. This could be huge for visually impaired users, enabling them to follow great blogs.

Since audio-ads seems to winning some ground with startups like Spotify & Pandora it could be a possible monetization option for us as well. But for now, let's just try to record a lof of blogs!

  1. Oh, this is so beautiful! I love crowdsourcing, just get it to function well in all browsers and podcast / blog tools and readers, and write some nice tutorials and a world of visually impaired people (and people who don't want to read all the time) are likely to be infinitely grateful. Wow!

    I'm so telling my visually impaired friend about this...
