Elly Parker will be doing a talk at BarCampIreland entitled “Getting Granny Podcasting (or Encouraging Web Usage in Non-Technical People)”. How hard is podcasting to do and to sustain? With so many Irish bloggers going on hiatus or just finishing up completely, will we see the same with podcasts?
It’s a fun thing to do for a while. But it’s really hard to sustain. It requires setting things up, getting a show together, and then editing the audio, making sure the sound is right, and then uploading the file to a hosting service, and then publicizing it.
Hopefully there’ll be a good discussion on the day at BarCamp about podcasting with some tips and tricks and advice on how to stick with it. There seems to be a good few podcasters coming down to Cork so come along and play devil’s advocate. I bet John Handelaar will be there. Here’s a list of 5 mistakes to avoid with corporate podcasting.
