Feed Issues

I realized this morning that the file links in the RSS feed for this show no longer work.  What this means is that people using feed readers to get this show, AND people using iTunes to get this show are no longer able to pull the files down.  This is a huge problem, and I’m 99% sure it’s caused by Feedburner.  Feedburner recently (in between the last show and this one) moved all feeds over to the Google servers, as part of Google’s integration of the business.  I’ve got a note posted to Feedburner, and hopefully will have a solution soon.  Until then, the only way to hear Startup BizCast will be at this website, which just isn’t good enough for the long term.

This issue is fixed … no thanks to Feedburner.   I suspect the problem was caused when they migrated my feed from the Feedburner servers to their new home on the Google servers.  Something kicked in, and I had to find the setting to change.  Mind you, I had changed nothing about this feed before or after the migration … other than the migration itself.  Grrrrr.

Startup BizCast #79 – Twitter for Small Business Owners (Dave Saunders)

After missing a week of the show … I’m back!  This week we have our promised episode on how small business owners can use Twitter.  I’m a member of the micro-blogging site and use it quite a bit, but I decided to bring in a guest who is even more immersed in the Twitterverse.  Dave Saunders from Madison & Main Advertising and New Media will give us some tips on getting started with Twitter!

What’s up?

Just a quick update on the show since we missed an episode last week.  I don’t know how important weekly episodes are to my listeners, but it irks me when I have to cancel a show.  Right now is a very busy time for EndGame PR and its podcast production service, BizPodz Productions and I may have to occasionally put that client work and family obligations in front of this podcast.  Unfortunately that may mean Startup BizCast is coming out a little less frequently or, at the very least less regularly.  This does NOT mean the show is going away … by any stretch of the word.

The good news, now that my pseudo-mea culpa is out of the way, is that we have a new episode coming tomorrow!  Check here, on the RSS feed, or on iTunes tomorrow morning to learn about using Twitter for Small Business!

Errrr … nevermind.

In my last post, I said this week’s episode would be a day late.  Nevermind.  There will be no episode this week.  The issue is a combination of being out of town all weekend, having a good bit of client work to do this week, and having a couple of sick kids.  The former left me a little behind, and the latter two mean there’s not much extra time to produce an episode of Startup BizCast.  I expect things will be back to normal next week, and I still expect to do an episode talking about how to use Twitter for business.

My apologies!

A day late, and hopefully not a dollar short.

FYI for everyone – Startup BizCast will be published a day later than usual this week.  I was out of town all weekend, which threw off my production schedule.  Expect a new episode on THURSDAY instead of Wednesday.  This week’s topic will be “Twitter for Small Business”.

Thanks for listening!
