How to add audio to your Facebook Page (video tutorial)


Facebook has stopped allowing you to stream your SoundCloud music. But you can still stream a SoundCloud player on Twitter!

1. Upload your file to SoundCloud.

2. Make sure the sharing is set to “public.”.

3. Copy the link and paste it in the”status” area as a tweet on Twitter.

4. Optional: add a description in the text field above the link and a short link back to your site.

5. Click “Post” to publish.

Your audio will now stream live on Twitter!

What is WordPress (self-hosted version)?

What is WordPress (self-hosted version)? The WordPress self-hosted software (not WordPress.com or WordPress MU) I am referring to is FREE, open-source software that…

  • is constantly evolving by an international community of developers (not Microsoft or Adobe)
  • is the #1 blogging software available (and is also used for websites)
  • anyone can download and install on their own web hosting (I use SiteGround)
  • is easy to learn how to use (FAR easier to use than Dreamweaver!)
  • is highly customizable with WordPress plugins and themes (learn which ones to use!)
  • must be kept up-to-date and be backed up regularly (the not-so-fun, but still easy part)
  • can be used for e-commerce, embedding audio and video and as a CMS (content mangagement system) in addition to blogging (you can make money easily)

You can help people find you on the internet by managing your Google profile.  It’s kind of fun, actually – you can add photos from a photo sharing service you use, add your Google voice phone number (or any phone number), your website/s, your superpowers and details about where you grew up and where you have lived.  With this tool you can also make sure people have the information (as little or as much) about you that you want them to have.

It is important to make the distinction between the free version available at WordPress.com and the self-hosted version available through WordPress.org (and through your web host). The free version available at WordPress.com is limited in functionality, however it is a great to place to get started learning it.
