Audio Blogger to shut down Service 11/1/06

Here is the email I got from them:

As of November 1, 2006, Audioblogger will no longer accept phone
calls. MP3s made with the service will continue to be hosted and
served but you will no longer be able to use Audioblogger to post
new audio.

Audioblogger is an independent product, run by Odeo, Inc., a small
startup company in San Francisco, CA. We are not affiliated with
Google or Blogger except that we operate and provide the
Audioblogger service.

Given our limited resources, we have to make tough decisions
about what projects to focus on. And we've come to the difficult
decision that Audioblogger demands too many resources, time, and
money for us to continue its operation.

However, there are several other services that offer similar
functionality. Odeo is not affiliated with any of these services,
we only suggest them only in hopes that one or the other will be
a good alternative for you. is a free service for recording by phone has a seven day free trial and lots of features is another free service for phone recording

All of the phone posting services listed above are compatible
with Odeo in that they produce podcast feeds, which can be
imported to Odeo. Any audio file at Odeo can be posted on a blog
by copying and pasting some embed code.

Odeo would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has
tried Audioblogger. If you are interested in keeping up with our
other blog-friendly projects, please have a look at
and our customizable audio players.

The Odeo Team

If any of you use mobiles to post audio to your blog, please let me know what you use. Not that I do a lot of Audio blogging, I would just like the ability to do so when I feel like it. This way I can check them out and get the pros and cons from you all.

i have posted audio to my blog with my Nokia 6103 using AudioBlogger many times. i am going to miss the ease of that system. I have not figured out how to use Gabcast yet. in fact, i should make as many audioblogs as i can before the first!
