Too drunk to type? Why not make a phone post?

Phone posts annoyingly allow users to add a sound recorded message to their blog entries. In most cases, these posts are worse than their regular attention whore posts, but provide the perfect opportunity for others to transcribe them for the lulz. The user calls a special phone number and enters their PIN, allowing them to leave a recorded message which is then posted to their journal. This feature is popular on LiveJournal but some other blogging services have it as well.

In the case of LiveJournal, the sound clip is exported to ogg vorbis format, mp3 or GSM-encoded WAV.

Today, phone posts are considered old media with the advent of vlogging on YouTube and LiveVideo.
