I'm a PODCASTER!

I know it will come as a shock, but this isn't my only blog. I also maintain David Farland's Authors' Advisory Conference Calls blog. There are other members of the team, and we've asked for tech advice from several other techies, but I'm the closest thing we have to in-house "tech support."

I know, I know. Laugh it up. Do you need a Kleenex?

So, anyway, we've wanted to provide the calls as a podcast for a long time, now. Callers have asked for it. All the other cool writing advice sites have podcasting. Wouldn't want to be different, right?

What's wrong with us? I just could not figure out how. I've researched it many a time and ended up confused, with a headache, and really no closer to the goal than I was before. It needed to be free, since we have no budget. It needed to be easy, since, well, let's face it: the internet really got going as I was starting college. My formative years were all pre-internet. I get along okay with most things, but computer genius I am not.

So finally, on my latest foray into the wild world of Let's-See-If-I-Can-Figure-This-Out... I DID IT!!!

Turns out, Blogger now works really well with Feedburner. Even provides a link to Feedburner in the help screen... and Feedburner is easy enough for a non-techie 30-something to use!!

And so, for all of you who have longed to have Authors's Advisory on your ITunes or other podcast players, head on over to the Authors' Advisory site and try it out.

Then, after you've done that, please let me know if it worked for you, if you had any issues... and if you know how to fix those issues.

Thanks to all of you who have given me advice on this perplexing problem. Little by little, my brain finally figured out what you were talking about. Mostly.

  1. Awesome! I listen to podcasts all the time.

    FYI - I was able to subscribe to the feed, download an episode, and listen to the first few minutes. Great job.

  2. Donna - What writing podcasts do you recommend?

    I currently listen to Writing Excuses, Wordplay, Appendix, Grammar Girl, (and now Farland's Author Advisory).
