There is a limit of three poems per reader per month in this collection, so I've included your three first submission, and will forward the rest to next month's collection, but let me know if you'd like another one to be forwarded so as not to split Snow's two poems. ?

"I wandered lonely as a cloud" by William Wordsworth

Recording length: 00:01:23
MP3 link: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc205_wanderedlonelyasacloud_sb_128kb.mp3

This is my first recording for LibriVox! My name is Sasha Beloglazova and I will appreciate any kind of feedback.
Thank you!!
Hello Meetali and Sasha! Welcome to the Poetry Collection! It's wonderful to have new and such lovely and fresh voices included in this collection!

Meetali, I have one PL note for you, regarding the intro. Because it's poetry we are using the short intro disclaimer. Would you be available to change that in your recording, mostly for consistency with the other poems. Your outro is fine :thumbs:

Sasha, congratulations on your first Librivox recording! Since it's your first, it's like a test recording to check your recording setup. I get some of the tech specs wrong. The bit rate should be 128kbps (constant) and in mono. Let me know what recording software you are using. If it's Audacity, I can give you specific advice how to fix that!
In the meantime, here's you Reader Page https://librivox.org/reader/14496 and you can also access it from your link-name in the Magic Window. It lists all projects you read for, so it might look a bit empty now, but I hope you enjoy recording and you'll gradually fill it! It can also help you keep track of your sections in ongoing project under the "Reader Section details" link.

Rapunzelina,

Sorry I missed the note about the three poem limit (the one you put in bold). :roll: What you did is just fine, just add the last one to next group.

Thanks for all your hard work,

Wayne

Hi Alex! Welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry Collection, too! You got the next reader number #14501 :mrgreen:
So this is your Reader page in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/reader/14501 which you can also access from your name-link in the Magic Window.
I've put A. B. Morgan as your catalogue name, because that is what I heard in the recording, but let me know if you'd like something else.
The Reader Page lists all projects you read for, and can also help you keep track of recordings in ongoing projects under the "Reader section details" link.
Thank you for your recording! It is a very touching poem. Tech specs, etc, all good, or what we say PL OK! Congrats on your first recording! :clap:

Thank you, Meetali! :thumbs: All good now. And I hope you are well too! :9:
Just for future reference, if you ever need to edit and re-upload a recording, you can use the same file-name. I have changed the filename now, so you don't need to do anything more with it. Thanks!
