This spring, we were excited to announce that Agent Genius was a “Featured Publisher” on Pimp My News, the free online service that allows users to *hear* blog articles dictated and upload them to various media players (perfect for your inner treadmill user slash efficiency expert)!

The BIG news at Pimp My News today is that now, over 30 blogs are now featured in the “Business>Real Estate” category!

Now, everyone can listen to all these great RE blogs on Macs/PCs, iPhones, iPods, or any MP3 player everywhere (in the car, gym, train, home/office, etc). Also, anyone can grab a PimpMyNews Badge to let people listen right from their site.

John Atkinson, founder of Pimp My News is an avid reader of AG and wants to know who *you* think should be added to the list of “Featured Publishers”?

Lani is the COO and News Director at The American Genius, has co-authored a book, co-founded BASHH, Austin Digital Jobs, Remote Digital Jobs, and is a seasoned business writer and editorialist with a penchant for the irreverent.

    Are you serious?!

    I had this idea the first day I started adding feeds into Google Reader. Is there any copyright protection for: “Hey… I thought of that first!”?

    Didn’t think so 🙁

    That voice on still has a very automaticky quality about it…

    I thought it would be hard to make your “get out of your feed reader” and “copyright” paragraphs unfunny .. but Chad somehow was able to do it.

    Pretty cool idea – wish something like this was available when my Father was alive as he had Macular Degeneration and he loved to read newspapers. Great idea John. 🙂

    We’ve received a lot of new requests to add other great RE blogs & we’ll be adding them soon(yours too Jay!) If you know of others to add, shoot us an email at

    Glenn – we’ve found that a lot of visually impaired folks really enjoy it (a close family member of mine also had MD)

    We’re lovin’ the feedback!

    Lani, very cool site! I just joined PimpMyNews and AgentGenius has a new subscriber. I also submitted to have our main blog feed there too. This is great way for quick reviews while you work AND some good self promotion!
