There are lots of things on the internet to shout about, so if you are the kind of person who likes to make a noise, get yourself along to Internetshout.com. This is a chat site where you make make as much of a hullabaloo as you like.
Users are encouraged to have an open conversation on any subject they care to post about on the site.
The difference is that voice, rather than text, is used as the medium of communication. It can be either recorded through the website or uploaded from your hard drive as an MP3.
So you will need a microphone to record your comments yourself, but this will have to be done in an MP3 format.
But if you do not mind running the site's little application, the in-built record feature is perfectly easy to use.
You can even preview your recording and start over again before you make the post live.
There are categories listed on the left, and you can post your own topic or reply to someone else.
It is great fun listening to the conversations that are building up, but beware that not all the conversations may be to your taste.
TRANSMISSIONS FROM BEYOND (http://transmissionsfrombeyond.com)
In the festive spirit, you can find some fancy baubles to adorn your blog with at blogthings.com.
You can also find on the site a vast collection of quizzes and curiosities to add to your online soapbox.
Have a little fun by doing a quiz to tell you what your nose says about your personality, or perhaps try a seasonal quiz to find out what kind of Halloween or Christmas treat you are.
Just pick the quiz you like, answer a few simple questions and you will be returned an answer which you can post with the MySpace or Facebook links. Or post the results on any website or blog you like.
The post will also invite visitors to your own site to take the test themselves.
