Podcast listing solved and I curse syntax

I wasn’t able to get a response with regards to my messing up the listing of The Casual Hike at podcastindex.org. I ended up changing the file name to my RSS feed and adding the podcast back to the index. That solved my problem and I even kept the...

Back in the podcast saddle

I guess I’m podcasting again. This time I’m a little more independent because I want to see how Sovereign Feeds work and I feel more comfortable with an XML file for my feed rather than one that is autogenerated at a directory. It’s definitely not as easy as PowerPress...

Submitted The Casual Hike to podcastindex.org

I just submitted my hiking podcast to the Podcast Index at podcastindex.org. Adding a podcast to the index is simple and straight forward. Click on the “Add” link near the top right, enter the URL of the feed, click on the captcha, then click on “Add”. And that’s it!...

Intro music and RSS generator

I picked some intro music for the hiking podcast and I’m still considering options for generating the podcast RSS feed. Here is the music for the hiking podcast. It’s a mellow and a little bluesy. I think it’s the perfect vibe. There are a few ways to generate the...

Dicking around with WordPress for the hiking podcast site

Registered 4 domain names for my hiking podcast

Yesterday I posted about how I was stuck because I couldn’t think of a domain name or come up with art for the new podcast. Out of the potential domain names I listed yesterday here are the ones I registered. Intermittent Hiker – intermittenthiker.com The Casual Hike – thecasualhike.com...

Hiking Podcast: Stuck on name and art

To start a podcast you don’t need artwork. It’s good if you have something in mind or have something ready but it’s not really necessary to start. A name is. The name is where everything else flows. You don’t have to, but you should, have dedicated domain name for...

I’m going to start another new podcast

I’ve been so unsuccessful at my other two podcasts, this one excluded, that I feel I need to start another one. This one will be based around hiking. Since I moved to Georgia I go hiking with my dog Godfrey once or twice a month. I have a Zoom...
