You want to know why there is a battle of the Sexes?

Listen to how +Elsie Escobar and +Jessica Kupferman prepare for a conference on the latest episode of She Podcast. Then listen to how +Daniel J. Lewis prepares on the latest episode of The Audacity to Podcast.

It would be funny to mashup the two episodes.

I'm sooo glad I'm a guy. What you ladies have to think about would make me "Swangry"

Two very good episodes from different perspectives.

Well I'm digging in and updating. I still had my feed with Feedburner because I'm thinking if it's not broke don't mess with it.  The scary part is if I break something I will have no idea how to fix it.

1. I just redirected my feed to blubrry and deleted Feedburner
2. I'm revisiting SEO for Podcasters and implementing some iTunes SEO that I couldn't do with Feedburner.
3. Learning the best way to upload my audio to Libsyn and control what information goes to iTunes and the other Podcast Directories.

Back when I passed my elevator mechanic's test in 1994 I said that my companies training program for new mechanics was a map, keys to a company van, and 20 broken elevators.  

They threw you into the deep end of the pool and it was swim or die.

Sure I made mistakes.  

Once I hooked up a 100 hp ac motor wrong and when I turned the power back on it shorted and blew a transformer right off a utility pole. Darkened a couple of city blocks. Yea I had a big white spot in my line of vision for a few hours and ringing in my ears. But I sure did learn not to do that again.

So moving a podcast feed in comparison shouldn't be too scary. 

Not that I want to have troubles, but I always learned more when I was in trouble.
 
If things go wrong I'll be back here whining like a child.

Keep us posted, John.  I've been thinking of making the move away from Feedburner as well.

I have the artistic ability of a stubbed toe, but there are so many graphic design apps now that just about anyone, even a tin eyed guy like me can come up with a design.

I bought an iPhone app called Typorama and in about an hour I came up with this.

It's not a masterpiece, but it's a start.  And it cost me $1.99.  "Back in the day" I would have peeled off 3 C notes to have this, or something like this done.
