Funtime - Re-Quote Sorry +Wayne Henderson , but I'm stealing this idea from you. Take a quote, add #Podcast  (or it's variant) from it. For example: 

"It's one small #Podcast  for man, one giant leap for Podcastkind".

Question of the Day - Contests Do you give anything away on your podcast? How do you do it? I usually run Rafflecopter for extra follows and tweets. Do you have a trick to get more subscribers for longevity?

I have done some quizzes and have given away some vinyl records and podcast keyrings. This is for my music podcast.

Question of the Day - Before or After Work Do you do your podcast before you go to your regular job, or after? Do you do it on weekends? Better yet, have you ever tried switching the schedule up to do it before or after work?

Back when I was a full-time employee, I would record both The Audacity to Podcast and my comedy show on the same night after work. That got to be too rough, so I switched to a biweekly schedule and alternated the show each week.

Question of the Day - RELOAD Over the weekend I got a new desktop and had to reload software. I ran into some interesting problems - one being a couple of my audio templates wouldn't open.

Are you ready if you have to move your podcast stuff over to a new computer? Do you have all your .vst and template files ready and backed up somewhere? Serial numbers?

Here's something to keep in mind. If I agree to be on your podcast and say "Whenever you want to do it", don't throw it back to me to "pick a time and day" to record, ultimately putting the scheduling on my lap. Take charge! Give me 3 times and days and if those don't work, we talk. If you just tell me to pick one, I'll pretty much move on.

+Jeffrey Powers that's completely different. If a guest says that to me (that would be a first), I would then reply with an invitation with a specific date and time.

Question of the Day - Social Networks Tips and Tricks to promote Is there something you do to gain social network engagement? Do you sculpt tweets where it will re-tweet and grow your followers? Do you create events in Google+? Do you go up on another social network (like Reddit) to promote? 

I would love to hear some tips and tricks to promote your show that even I could use.

If you haven't looked over this PEW research sheet: There are a lot of takeaways - such as getting the demographic market of 13-33. I still had someone ask me what a podcast is a couple weeks ago, so education is still important here.

13 to 33?! What could possibly appeal to both ends of that spectrum? Whatever it is I don't want any part of it. The dumbing down of most entertainment (if that's what we're doing) and the pandering to children that's taken hold in the past couple of decades is shocking. I have nothing to say to a 13 year old, and they wouldn't listen to me even if I did. Which is as it should be.

I do wonder sometimes though, if young kids ever download my podcast just because it's flagged as "explicit" in iTunes. I mean, if I was a kid those would be the ones I'd go for. ;)

It's fun to track your body and make sure you are healthy, but what happens if the wearable is the thing that's hurting you? This week, Luke and Jeff will talk about the Fitbit rash of 2014, and how wearables might hurt you more than help. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Wearable Today. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

One of my favorite spots to get work done. Great food (Sonoma Chicken Sandwich is one of my favs), many choices of coffee and tea. Yola's is also active in Social Media Breakfast, so it's a destination to meet with clients and interact. WiFi is free and a little more secure than the others around Madison. Staff is friendly and will help you if you need it. Walk up and say hi to Lance and Lisa.

Awesome pizza, and many good extras! If you want a specialty pizza like the Margarita, Chicken Alfredo, etc. They are the place to go. If you order online, the system is a little buggy. I had to restart my pizza order a couple times. There was no way to delete the order otherwise.

Just was over there. Awesome store, fresh look. If you go to the mall for Apple help, you might be sitting for a while because it's always busy. But by coming over here, you are able to surpass the crowd and get one-on-one support.

I enjoy AJ Bombers burgers whenever I can. They have some great twists on the craft of making a hamburger, and their other sandwiches are pretty tasty, too. Need some peanuts? Their bombers can get you a bowlfull in a jiffy. And they're a lot of fun to watch.
