Podcast Oops

I admit it, I screwed up. Sorry guys, there will be no podcast this weekend.

This one is entirely my bad. Something came up in my schedule, and I kind of have to drop everything and deal with it. It’s nothing bad, I’ll just be out of town for a few days. As such, I won’t have the chance to get all three of the guys I was going to interview together, and I couldn’t find anybody to throw together a last-minute thing.

This is really disappointing for me because I’m just getting started, and getting four episodes done in a row (ie, one month) would have been a nice achievement (not to mention I’ve gotten a lot of new subscribers this week, and I hate to disappoint). I’ll try not to let this happen in the future.

A quick tip

I don’t want this to be a useless post, so I’ll leave you guys with a quick tip (in case you ever want to do a podcast of your own). For starters, I just submitted my podcast to iTunes last night (you guys can stop bugging me now), but I noticed that podPress wasn’t feeding the correct values to the RSS feed. As such, it wasn’t getting my name and description correct in the iTunes summary. So, instead of using the feed that podPress creates specifically for iTunes, I decided to just use my Feedburner feed. I quickly found out that Feedburner anticipated that its users would be publishing to iTunes, so they included an easy way to edit your feed details.

If you’re logged in to Feedburner, select your podcast feed and click on the ‘Optimize’ tab at the top. Click on ‘Smartcast’ in the sidebar, and you’ll see all of the values that your feed passes to iTunes, all laid out in an easy-to-edit fashion. Easy, right? Mess with all of that until you have a nice, pretty iTunes summary.

To fill the void

My guests and I were going to talk about how to go from $0 to $1,000 in your first month of making money online. If you’re really curious about the many ways to do that, and you can’t wait until (hopefully) next week, I’d suggest reading through the Wickedfire Newbie Board. Tons of good information there.
