I’d been wanting to add audio clips to our website from our series of “Hatfield Stories” interviews for a long time, but didn’t know how to do it. And I was pretty sure we had to upgrade to a paid premium account (on Weebly.com, our free website hosting service) to allow audio files to play. Thanks to my husband, who is always trolling for free applications, I found SoundCloud, an audio hosting site. It’s like YouTube for audio-only.
After signing up for an account (did I mention it was free?), I uploaded my mp3 audio clips and an image (optional), wrote a few lines of intro text, and now we’ve got streaming audio for free. Check it out by clicking HERE.
The wonders of the Internet. Don’t believe those people who say technology is getting in the way of people connecting with people. You can let it do that, or you can use it to bring people together who would never have the chance to meet. You’ll meet some great Hatfield folks by listening to the clips in the link above. Enjoy!
