Would you rather talk than write?

When I talk to people about writing blog posts, or articles, or email newsletters, one of the things I hear back a LOT is that they don’t like to write, don’t think they can write well, don’t have time to write.

Hate to write?Usually, these folks are tremendously well spoken. They have powerful stories that need to get out, and they’re good at TELLING their stories – they’re just not comfortable WRITING their stories.

So I usually recommend that they TALK their blog posts, their articles, their stories, and then get the audios transcribed.

I just watched a video interview of someone whose blog I follow. The neat thing was the transcription of the interview that appeared right below the video — and the link to SpeechPad, the service that did the transcription.

I’ve never used them, but the transcription I read was very very close to the video I watched (which was here).

So if you’re looking for a transcription service, or you’ve been putting off posting to your blog or writing that article, check them out!


  1. I’m just about to write my first blog post, as a guest for someone else’s blog. I’m going to give it the ol’ college try to write it first. But now I know where to go if I want to get it transcribed, thanks for this post!
