Another week, another blogging service integrated to the Sharing option on SoundCloud. This week’s guest: Blogger.com. Here’s your step-by-step guide to show you how easy it is to share your favorite tracks, sets and group sets to your blog hosted on Blogger.com. Let’s start by looking at the Share options where you’ll see the Blogger logo:
Now when you click it, we’ll ask you to authorize SoundCloud to connect with your Blogger account (you can always change the authorization settings in your Blogger/Google account):
By clicking Go to Authorization, you’ll be redirected to the Google page (shown below) where you simply click Grant access. Once the access was granted, we will take you back to the page on SoundCloud to continue with your post.
In the window pictured below, you’ll be able to edit your post title, add tags and write more about the track/set/group you wish to post. You can also save the post as a draft if you don’t want it to get posted immediately.
Click Post and - Ta-da - you just blogged a SoundCloud track:
Sharing SoundCloud tracks on Soup.io
WhaSoup.io, people? Last week during Music Hack Day in London we had the chance to meet Christopher from micro-blogging platform Soup.io and quickly decided it would be a great idea to make it easy for users to share their SoundCloud tracks on Soup.io. Less than a week later and we’re all set!
If you have a (micro)blog over at Soup.io, you can now easily import publicly shared tracks from SoundCloud. Just head to your account, add any SoundCloud username to the list and it will automatically import the public tracks to your blog.
This is how your Soup.io blog looks after importing the tracks. Whenever you upload a public track to SoundCloud it will automatically be added. Pretty cool!
Also, much like the Posterous integration, whenever you’re on a SoundCloud track page (or any other page with SoundCloud tracks embedded for that matter) you can use the Soup.io bookmarklet to post a track with just one click:
Hats off to Christopher and the Soup.io team for getting this great new feature live so quickly. Try it out.
