Ileane Smith's curator insight, December 23, 2014 10:05 AM

I'm sharing this one because I love any article that encourages people to start a podcast. BUT be cautious of any ULTIMATE podcasting guide that written by someone who doesn't have their own podcast. 

For example, take a look at the excellent comment from my friend and fellow podcaster Bryan Goodwin:


Would like to add a couple of points to this article which has some great points.
Website, your podcast needs a website. This should be the home base for your podcast and its show notes. If you have a site that uses a CMS like WordPress then you will not have to worry about using something like FeedforAll because WordPress automatically creates that RSS feed. And if you add the Powerpress plugin then you don’t even have to worry about a podcast specific RSS feed. That too is automatic.
Also having your own podcast website and not relying on something like podbean that way if they close their doors you will not have to worry about losing your audience.
Keep up spreading the word about podcasting!
