The Feed Re-cap 2014

The Feed The Official Libsyn Podcast

What a year!

This is our first full year of podcasting consistently since we started producing The Feed.

Our anniversary is in the summer, so we’ve been at this for a year and a half now but 2014 was our first year of podcasting.

Here’s what I’ve learned:

  • Make a schedule that you can sustain – there are so many suggestions of podcasting best practices, and the only ones that work are the one that work for YOU. I knew that doing anything consistently for more than twice a month was not gonna work. The Feed goes live every 2 weeks. That kind of schedule gives me a strong vantage point – I can be consistent.
  • Templates rock – from the get go, I created templates for each episode so that I could make things easier for myself. I knew from experience that starting shownotes from scratch or creating a new project in Garageband from scratch is a pain and feeds inertia. I have Byword and Garageband templates that make getting started so much easier.
  • Give yourself space to get the job done – Do I have a ‘record the episode and it’s published faster than the speed of light’ type of workflow? Nope. My life doesn’t lend itself to more than 1 hour of sustained production work. Rob and I record then I have 1–3 days to get the podcast episode out. That gives me plenty of time to GET the episode out and also provides a buffer just in case life gets in the way 😉
  • You gotta love it! – The work is soooooooo much easier when you love to podcast about what you’re podcasting about. I love working on The Feed. I love creating community. I love researching podcasting. I love talking about podcasting. I love podcasting, period, so doing this podcast is all bonus!!!.

Those are my words of wisdom!
