So, podcasting on YouTube. I've looked through old posts, but haven't found a comprehensive thread with a lot of people weighing on on whether it's worth the time. Do you put your audio podcasts on YouTube? If so, what kind of visuals do you add? Do you feel like it's worth your time? Have you done it and then given up for some reason? What are the best practices? Thanks!

+J. T. Latshaw E-mail is the slowest way to reach me with a grammar question. You're most likely to get an answer through the Grammar Girl Facebook page (http://facebook.com/grammargirl) because I'm not the only one answering questions there.

I discovered a way to post audio in Facebook's Instant Articles, and I'm curious whether other people intend to try it (or have seen it).
We’re looking into putting a few of our articles into Facebook Instant Articles as a test, so I was looking at the docum…

Introduction
I'm Grammar Girl and so much more.
Bragging rights
Founder of the Quick and Dirty Tips network, creator and host of the Grammar Girl podcast. Since they call this section "bragging rights," I'll mention that I was once a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show, my first book was a New York Times bestseller, and my audiobook was nominated for an Audie award. My book "Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students" was named to the International Reading Association’s 2012 Teachers’ Choice book list.
