Listen to Your Favorite Blogs at Home or on the Go

Posted on 8.27.2008

The blogoshpere is enormous and that means you don't always have time to read everything you would like. PimpMyNews is solving this problem by providing audio readouts of your favorite blogs that you can listen to on your PC, iPhone, iPod or any other MP3 player.

Sign up for an account and you will be presented with a list of FastPaks - categories pre-loaded with blogs in popular themes like sports, tech, entertainment and so on. Or, start browsing blogs by category and sub-category. There are hundreds to choose from, so you should find something you like, but you are limited to 10 feeds.

Logging in to your account will then display all your feeds and you can start listening. However, you do need to click each post to hear it - you can't just stream one post after another, which kind of ruins the idea. Therefore, it seems that getting the feeds as podcasts is the best use of the service. The voice is the typical, odd, robotic sound but it's more than bearable - there are pauses for commas and even appropriate inflection on some words.

Finally, on the site you can alert the service of mispronounced words and suggest blogs for inclusion.
