Speak your blog posts and to-do lists

By John Jantsch

mosioI’ve written about a free service called jott.com before because I use it to capture ideas when I’m driving or reading the Sunday paper in bed. I just hit a phone number and speak my message and then I get the message transcribed and delivered to my email – or, and this is really helpful, to my virtual assistant or anyone else I have set-up, including groups of people.

It automatically creates a link to the audio file though so people can hear the message in your voice too.
