The Voice Library Review & Giveaway

Have you heard of The Voice Library? (http://www.thevoicelibrary.net)  If not, here's a short description:

The Voice Library is a service that allows you to capture, store and share the voices and stories that mean the most to you. Over time, these stories and clips create the collected soundtrack of your family’s life.

Record or listen to audio clips over the phone or using your computer microphone and speakers. You can also upload audio clips you may already be storing elsewhere. The people you share your clips with can listen either on the phone or by computer. Recordings stored in The Voice Library are secure and available 24/7/365.

Cool, right?  When I was first contacted I wasn't sure I would use it but once I got thinking I realized I would. How great to be able to read my nieces & nephews in NH stories or to have my friend Megan record a particularly funny story on here so I can hear it.  It would also be great to verbally record memories and thoughts. I'd love to record a message for The Man to listen to when he surfaces or have him record me some to listen to while he's gone. There are tons of uses for this!

The Voice Library thoughtfully provided me with a $50 gift card to try them out. I set up an account which was super easy and quick.  Now I just have to get a few books to read to the kiddos and I'll be all set!  And once Megan returns from camp I want her to record the story of how she was supposed to get 17 campers from the airport but ended up with 20...

If this sounds like something you'd like to try I have some good news for you!  I have THREE $50 gift certificates to give away to my readers!  What does this give you, you ask?  It gives you 300 minutes (5 hours) of recording time, plus 5 years of storage.  What a great deal!  It could be yours from free.  I can't wait to share this with you so there are lots of easy ways for you to enter.
