Audioblogger has been Cancelled
Odeo has announced that it will no longer support Audioblogger for Blogger users, and phone calls made to it will no longer work. MP3s that are already made with the service will continue to be hosted and served but you will no longer be able to use Audioblogger to post new audio messages. This is their notice:
Audioblogger is an independent product, run by Odeo, Inc., a small startup company in San Francisco, CA. We are not affiliated with Google or Blogger except that we operate and provide the Audioblogger service.
Given our limited resources, we have to make tough decisions about what projects to focus on. And we’ve come to the difficult decision that Audioblogger demands too many resources, time, and money for us to continue its operation.
However, there are several other services that offer similar functionality. Odeo is not affiliated with any of these services, we only suggest them only in hopes that one or the other will be
a good alternative for you.
Gabcast.com is a free service for recording by phone. Hipcast.com has a seven day free trial and lots of features Gcast.com is another free service for phone recording.
All of the phone posting services listed above are compatible with Odeo in that they produce podcast feeds, which can be imported to Odeo. Any audio file at Odeo can be posted on a blog
by copying and pasting some embed code.
Odeo would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has tried Audioblogger. If you are interested in keeping up with our other blog-friendly projects, please have a look at Twitter.com
and our customizable audio players.

I guess that strikes another nail in Blogger’s coffin for its perceived advantages over Wordpress.
