Will you take the FeBOOary challenge?
Audioboo fan Jonathan Sawyer tweeted us to tell us about his plans to make February into #FeBOOary, and record a new Audioboo each day for a month. We love the idea of regular boo-ing so we asked who else in the Audioboo family might be up for the challenge of matching Jonathan with daily Audioboos of their own. You’re an energetic bunch so plenty of people said they’d give it a go.
Here’s Jonathan explaining the concept in his own words:
I guess we should share some tips and tricks to make it a cracking FeBOOary, so how about these:
First – feel free to drop us a line in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter to let us know you’re going to be part of the #FeBOOary gang (and remember to use the hashtag!).
Secondly – be sure to use the #FeBOOary tag on all your Audioboos that you’re submitting for the project.
Thirdly – remember to add your location to the Audioboo, either by enabling geolocation on your smartphone (in the settings menu), or adding your position on the map when uploading via the web. That way we will be able to make a nice map of your boos, a bit like the Southwark soundmap.
Fourthly – listen to other boos tagged #FeBOOary and encourage each other with comments and ideas
All sounds marvellous, but what are we all going to boo about for a month? Well let’s open up the floor to suggestions for daily topics or ideas to get the cogs whirring. It would be lovely to get a variety of opinions on each day’s subject. Here are a few to start you off – and I’m sure Jonathan will be happy to share some of his ideas too. You don’t have to stick to them, but sometimes it helps to have a plan – no?
FeBOOary Week One Topic Ideas
FeBOOary 1st – How about an introduction, where are you from? Why have you decided to take part in FeBOOary?
Feb 2nd – Tell us a story about what you wanted to be when you grew up – and did you manage it?
Feb 3rd – Think of a time when someone did something kind for you (big or small) and tell that story
Feb 4th – Send us an audio postcard from wherever you are, talk us through what you can see and what’s going on
Feb 5th – Talk about something that interests you, can you teach us something new?
Feb 6th – Which New Year’s resolutions have you already broken – or have you kept them all
Feb 7th – Interview someone – you pick the questions!
So that’s one week dealt with, but you can shape the next week. What shall we add to the list? Let me know and I’ll share it with everyone else and soon we’ll be well on our way to a jam-packed month of interesting content.
