Podcasting can be a drag

October 30, 2008

I committed to do a daily podcast “just so I could get better at it.”  So far I feel pretty confident that my skills are improving.  I’ve produced a couple of “buffer” episodes that I have in the can just in case I’m unable to produce new content on a particular day.

Currently, I’m up to episode 15, and I’ve decided to abandon one of the underlying products that make my podcast go:  podcastblaster.  I didn’t know XML when I started this project, so I signed up for the first tool that I could find that would let me publish podcast feeds for free.  Had I done my research, I would have found that blogs make FAR superior podcast feed generation tools (plus they’re BLOGS)!

So, I’ve spent much of this evening transferring all of the entries from my podcast feed into blog entries on the blog I’ve set up to host my daily podcast.  I hope I don’t lose many subscribers when I make them resubscribe using the new feed…
