Frustration

Dear Readers,

This morning I wanted to share my favorite wake-up song with you. It's a perfect mix of pump-up and inspiration and always sets the stage for a wonderful day.

But I was thwarted. By my very own blog. Oh, the betrayal! Apparently there's no easy way to post mp3 files to Blogger. WTFuck, Blogger? Why do you stymie me so???

If one of you has a suggestion for embedding mp3 files in blogs, please let me know. There has to be a way to do this, right? I searched Google briefly to figure this out, but all I found was a bunch of mumbo-jumbo about HTML and URLs and Flash - all things I could figure out if I had an hour to puzzle through them. But I don't.

All tips and tricks for the layman (and we're talking real lay here), should be left in the comment section below.

Please? Thanks,
Tianasaurus

Looks to be a 3rd Party Only option...

Embedding music/audio from third-party sites
If you'd like to embed a playlist or functionality from a third-party music service such as Last.fm or Imeem, Blogger's layouts feature makes it easy.

Visit your Template | Page Elements tab.
Create a new widget by clicking "Add a Page Element."
Choose the "HTML/Javascript" widget.
Enter the HTML code provided by your third-party music service into the content window and click "Save Changes."
If you can't find the necessary code, you may have to contact your third-party music service. Feel free to position the page element wherever you'd like.

There are plenty of services to share and embed music available on the web. Here's a list of a few to get you started. Please keep in mind that these services aren't affiliated with Blogger, but we've heard good things about them.

Last.fm
Seeqpod
Imeem
IODA Promonet
Hypster
Streampad
Splashcast
Project Playlist
FineTune

Thanks for the suggestion; I'll give it a try. I think part of the problem (the main part) is me. My eyes glazed over at 'third party sites'...
