OK, the way I put the tune up was pretty straightforward.
First, I opened a free account at Box.net to hold the file. I’m not currently planning to upload a whole lot of files, but if I suddenly found I wanted to host a regular podcast or something (yeah right, because I’m just so bored around here right now, I could totally add writing, recording, publishing and promoting a regular podcast to the list…) their monthly charges for upgraded services seemed pretty reasonable to me.
Then I uploaded the music file. Super easy. Once I figured out how to get it into the computer. Ahem. Yes. Let us draw the veil of decency over that spasm of technology-impairedness, shall we?
Then, I turned on the ‘embed links’ function in Blogger; you could also simply provide the URL in a blog post using the a href= command we know and love so well. I wanted to use the title link, though, because it comes through in the RSS feed as an ‘enclosure’ – so if you only read through the reader, you can still get to it by clicking on the little ‘enclosure’ thing there.
And that was that! Super easy!
