Want to hear a true Southern Voice?

I went to a workshop last October in which the leaders stressed creating ADA compliant blogs. I started at 11:00 this morning and here is the final result. The picture is a little too much, but podOmatic has only one widget. My goal is the small Odeo widget at the bottom of posts. I would love any help or tips y'all might want to send my way.

Wonder if you can edit my drawl out?!?

maggie moran said...

Why, Jo, Thanks! Now, no need to be a stranger anymore. I have your blog address! :D
So, you could understand me?!? ;D

Emma said...

You have a beautiful reading voice, you should do BOOKS ON TAPE!!

maggie moran said...

Why, Emma, thank yew! Maybe, I'll get discovered and be asked to read southern books in Hollywood. ;) Awraight, someone squeeze my head back to size. lol

Sam Sattler said...

What drawl, Maggie? You sound like everyone I know. Don't tell me that we have accents; I always thought it was those other guys who had an accent. :-)

Brittanie said...

I agree with the books on tape comment. You have a great voice. Sounds like home. :)

Oh, Sam! I was in Minnesota a couple of weeks ago when I noticed a group at the next table looking at me. How rude right! Well the male in the group said something and I heard the female across from him say, "Well, we are in America." I then used my librarian's voice and could watch them lean closer to hear, ah, but I'm a professional. ;D

Oh, and I have been told I sound more Texan than Tennessean. :)

Ah, thanks Brittanie. I like where you live. ;D

I speak Southern Maggie with a South Carolina accent...:-)

If you don't comply, what happens?

Will they take away your computer?

Are these rules posted anywhere?

Amanda said...

Maggie, I nominated you for an excellence award. Go to my blog for details! By the way, thank you for always making my day with your posts.

Don't go losing that drawl, I may have to listen again, on occasion, when I get homesick! BTW, I read Confederates in the Attic years before I began my blog in 2004, so no online reviews :(

Sharon said...

What drawl??

Mary (Bookfan) said...

Maggie, I loved hearing your voice! Keep reading to us, pleeeeeez! :~)

maggie moran said...

I bet your voice is a little lower though, Paul. ;)

Well, no WW100. The professor was aiming her soapbox at us librarian bloggers. Colleges/Universities are supposed to have ADA compliant websites, and I believe she felt institutional supported blogs should fall suit. It's an idea I'm willing to pursue; although, I'm unsure how a sight challenged person would stumble upon this blog. Maybe down the road...

Ah, Amanda. Thank yew! I should be giving you an award for taking a chance on printing my garble. :)

That's nice of you to write, Sage. While reading CitA, I was struck by the lack of change in social thoughts from 1998 to 2008. What happened to our strives for togetherness?

Ah, Sharon, you tease! ;D

maggie moran said...

Mary, you make me laugh! Silly gurl! ;D

Stella said...

Maggie - Listening to your podcast is like listening to my sisters-in-law in Tennessee. Love that accent!

maggie moran said...

Ah, I hope you at least like your sister-in-law, too. ;) Thank yew, Stella.

Diane said...

Love the podcast! You have a lovely reading voice!

maggie moran said...

Ah, thanks Diane. :)

Maggie,
Did you use Audacity to record your podcast? I'm beginning my next Adult Tech Team assignment, which is to explore podcasting. I've installed Audacity, and I'm considering using podbean.com for storing my podcasts. They also have a smaller/less "in-your-face" widget to put on your blog. Click on the link "Heather" on my blog and take a listen to the podcast Heather created of an interview she did with her uncle. You'll see the widget on her blog. I also like the fact that you stay at the blog to hear it rather than going out to the podcast site (for what that's worth). In the meantime, I'm bleary-eyed from sitting in front of the computer yesterday trying to figure out how to save/whatever the recording I did so that I can then post it. I'm sure it'll come to me eventually and I'll say "duh!" Any tips you could pass along to me regarding the whole process would be appreciated.

I loved it!! And the best thing was your voice!

maggie moran said...

Ah, thanks Nan! :)

Okay...I'm so slow on the draw here. Now I see that you've got lots of podcasts on your blog, and are doing some lovely reviews. It's wonderful to hear your voice! Don't you dare try to edit out your drawl, even if you could!
