For those of you who are waiting for +Stitcher Radio to send you an approval letter for your podcast, I would go to the site and search for your show. Chances are, they approved it.

Yes, the rumors are true. I have decided to take some time off from +Day in Tech History . I have been producing this show on a daily basis since August 10, 2009. Over 2100 episodes in it's almost 6 year run. 

Time for a break.

Question of the Day - Pre-planning the seasons If you go to any department store, you'll see they are heavily promoting back to school. If you create crafts, you know there is a lot of push to start Christmas items. By next month, we'll see fall invade the stores. 

In podcast marketing, you might have to start thinking ahead to future events. When I did +Geekazine  as a episodic podcast, it would be time to start pushing +CES .  I even knew some podcasters who would begin getting their holiday episodes ready at this time. 

What are your strategies to plan for the upcoming months?

We plan episodes in advance that are specific to major industry events in our niche, but nothing "seasonal" in the consumer sense of the term.

Question of the Day - Cable Management Do you have your cords in a nice, neat pile or are they just sitting on a floor? Do you use zip ties and ferrite cores to keep your cords managed and not causing issues with sound?

I have cables not being used in appropriately marked plastic bins and the ones being used are wrapped to the right length with velcro strips... I'm a little OCD :)

For all of you that are using +YouTube in your podcast creation - I have found an awesome tool that helps you manage your YouTube vidoes a lot better. +TubeBuddy is a sweet set of tools that allow for bulk copying of Annotations, Cards, creating thumbnails from YouTube, getting the embed code (without having to dig through the video), and even run contests! 

I do have an affiliate code (http://www.tubebuddy.com/geek) which will get you 20% off your order. The Tag Explorer is worth the price - go through your videos and add more relvant tags people are searching on to bring new life to your shows.

I am very happy with YouTube. It's a great service that not only hosts my videos, but pays me monthly for them! Further, if you really work the channels, you can easily get people to come back and consume more. I spend 5-10 hours a month simp...

This week Luke and Jeff are headed to the Gym to find out some of the best wearable devices out there. Are they waterproof? What do they track? Is Apple Watch a good wearable for the Gym? We'll try to answer all those questions and more.

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.
