So...um...I made a podfic  
I decided to try out podficcing, and I thought the best way to do it would be to try recording one of the snippets I've written, as snippets are very short and I don't risk butchering someone else's work. ;)

Unlike when I speak naturally, my voice seems to go gravelly almost immediately when I start reading aloud. I tried my best to keep my voice smooth, but it gets rough in a few places. Oh well.

Hi! I'm pleased you're interested in listening!

I'm not up on the main file sharing sites anymore. I have a dropbox that I think I can still access, if you have an account with them. Or I could probably figure out how to email the file if you want to PM me. Or I suppose, I could sign up with another site, if there's one you're more comfortable with. Let me know what works for you, and I'll try to get the podfic to you. :)

Yes, I can access dropbox and dl from there.

So many changes in file sharing sites and so much scattering of fandom across multiple social media platforms -- I am finding it hard to "keep up" and so happy when I can manage to stay connected or manage to reconnect. (And speaking of my not keeping up: you might not even remember, but I have a copy of a years-ago WIP fanmix of yours -- fours years ago this month, in fact -- that you and I had discussed my adding on to it, and that's another thing where I haven't kept up.)

Here is the new link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6pco1er9iqpa86b/Absence.mp3?dl=0

So hopefully, that works. I opened an account some time back, but never used it!

I have trouble keeping up too, sometimes. I remembered someone had the fanmix WIP, but I couldn't remember who! Haha. Four years, wow. I think I only had the songs I wanted saved in an iTunes playlsit, at least at recently, but I don't even have that anymore. I've thought about it from time to time. My iTunes updated a couple of months back and I don't know what I did (or if it was just technology being wonky), but it wiped out everything I had stored in there. I mean, I still had all of my files on my computer, but I had to load them back into iTunes, so that playlist is gone.

Anyway, that's my first podfic, my only completed, posted one too. I found that as soon as I started reading, my voice would go all gravely, so I was trying to fight that. Also, I remembered hearing that many people read too quickly, so I read really slowly, probably too slowly! But I'll quit rambling about its shortcomings. I hope you enjoy it anyway!

Yays! I'll dl that after I get home from work tonight! I've dl'ed various dSC6D stuff from dropbox, but I still haven't tried UPloading anything to it -- yet another way I'm behind the techy trends. And more about being behind: I bought a very fine snowball microphone and I upgraded my headphones three years ago specifically for podfic purposes and I still haven't done my first podfic (well, I've participated in a group podfic at a fancon, but I haven't done even one at home on my own).

Bummer about your iTunes playlist disappearance. I had a similar thing happen -- I somehow lost access to my YouTube list for a dS fanmix. Oh technology -- *sigh*.
