I am having trouble getting some of my podcast episodes to play when I click on them in iTunes. If you have similar situations, please comment below. I am trying to find out if it is me, or iTunes.
Remember you can always listen to the podcasts from the Writer Groupie page. I post them on that page to keep them conveniently placed.
***update*** it isn’t me…apparently iTunes did an update to their latest version and it affected podcasts in a sort of bad way. I found that I HAD to subscribe to the podcast in order to get them to play. Not a good thing, but I guess it is what it is. So go forth fair listener! Subscribe !! ****
So why should an author have a podcast? Well, it sure seems like a good idea, I mean, all that traffic to and from where your feed goes out, say, iTunes, or one of the others. But the best reason, in my honest opinion, is that readers can get to know you, the author, a little better. It’s like once they listen to you half a dozen times, or see your mug on a video post, well, they “know” you.
It sure helps when it comes to your work. Wouldn’t you prefer to read a book by someone you have a connection with? I know I would!
