Write it Down - This is perhaps the easiest way to tell your story. Write down your story, or copy and paste it in below. Please attach a photo if you have, either of yourself or one that pertains to the story.
Record the Story on your Phone or Computer - Find a nice quiet space to make your recording. A great choice is a room that has carpeting and other sound absorbing materials in it. Also, please be sure there’s no AC or other distracting sounds running in the background. If using your phone, set it to Airplane Mode, so incoming calls and notifications don’t disrupt your recording.
Make your audio recording with whatever device or app that’s best for you. Here are a few ways to get it done: If you have an iPhone, you can use the Voice Memo app which is pre-installed on your phone. If it’s an Android, look for either the Recorder, Sound Recorder or Voice Recorder app on your phone. If using a MacBook, you can use the QuickTime Player and choose New Audio Recording under File or Garage Band. For Windows, use Voice Recorder. If using your phone, try speaking from about 3-4 inches away, then try 6-7 inches, and decide which one sounds best. For the computer, test a couple of different volume levels. Now smile, have fun, and Tell Your Story! Consider doing two takes, and send in the best one. Attach your MP3 or M4A audio file here on the Submit your Story page.
