For quick takes, I use a Tascam DR-05 portable digital recorder. It has stereo mics, and is really easy to use. Sound quality is easily adequate for Internet purposes. It attaches to a PC via USB cable, and then serves as an external storage device, from which you can copy the sound files (mp3 format) to your hard disc, and thence into the Internet.

When I've uploaded a sound file to my PC, I usually edit it in Audacity (freeware) to remove false starts and long silences at the finish. If necessary, I can equalise it in Audacity, or even edit out minor mistakes.

The Tascam is also useful for "listening" to yourself practising!👍
