WordPress Podcasting Roundup for March 16, 2008

Both WordPress Weekly and the WordPress Podcast have pushed out new episodes this week, with each talking about very different things in the WordPress community.

WordPress Weekly put out their tenth episode, with talks of the WordPress 2.5 administration panel included colour sets, gravatars being added to the WordPress support forum, and some other great news worth checking out.

Over on the WordPress Podcast, episode 38, Charles and Jonathan talk about the continuing delay of WordPress 2.5, WordPress’ entry into the Google Summer of Code, followed up with some plugins and some answers to some questions.

Podcast Roundup for March 7th, 2008

So our two WordPress related shows have released another episode with the WordPress Podcast pushing out episode 37 and the WordPress Weekly Podcast on episode 9.

A fair bit of the WordPress podcast was devoted to what is going on with Charles and Jonathan as well as WordPress 2.5, which hasn’t come out yet. This week thought they do cover some plugins and answer some e-mails. The episode runs in at 42 minutes.

Over on WordPress Weekly, there was a lot more WordPress related news covered from BuddyPress being taken in by Automattic, to eBay using WordPress to power their blog. With a panel of five people, they have many different opinions on their topics, and it was an interesting episode as Patricia Mayo joined them in adding a female slant to what is usually a very male heavy show.

Definitely check out both shows if you are interested in WordPress.

Podcast Roundup for March 2nd, 2008

As things continue to progress, and we get closer to the next major release of WordPress, the podcasting scene continues to grow, and increase in pace. With two weekly shows about WordPress, I feel like we are getting all of our news, but now Performancing, a sister blog to Blogging Pro is getting their podcasting groove on talking about blogging in a more general sense. Called Perfcast, their first episode has them talking about building a powerful blog.

WordPress Weekly continues with their weekly episodes, pushing the show to Saturday instead of their usual Friday night recording time. This meant that I wasn’t able to participate, but the show turned out great anyways. If you want to learn more about WordPress Mu, Episode 8 is the one you want to listen to.

The WordPress Podcast also has a new episode up with Charles and Jonathan Bailey chatting a little about the lack of new news and plugins for them to discuss before talking about plagiarism and theft of copyrighted material. They slipped a little from their weekly recording schedule, but hopefully they can stay on track going forward.

WordPress Weekly: Episode 6

If you enjoyed listening to me in the WordPress Podcast with Charles, then you might be interested to hear me in WordPress Weekly, a fan created podcast run by Jeffro of Jeffro2pt0. I was recently in episode six, which discusses many interesting things relating to WordPress and the WordPress community.

This week on Episode 6, we finally see WordPress 2.5 feature froze which is a standard practice for all versions of WordPress. A live WP 2.5 demo site has been made available to the public in case you want to see what you have to look forward to, intros summarized stats for the stat junkies, Yahoo interviews Matt Mullenweg of and discusses a variety of topics. Movable Type does WordPress in a weird sort of way. Your WordPress Weekly Digest update and some tips on making sure that your WordPress plugin using Jquery does not conflict with other plugins using Jquery. Last but not least, some WordPress beginners lingo.

Definitely a must listen to podcast if you are interested in WordPress. Episode six runs the gamut with both beginner and advanced material. Some that was even over my head, though that’s not too hard to do.

The FourFourNiner Podcast: Pilot Episode

Chris Garrett, a well known designer and friend of mine has gone ahead and tapped me to join him on his podcast, named the FourFourNiner, where we answer questions relating to blog design, search engine optimization, blogging professionally, WordPress and pretty much anything else related to our expertise that we are asked.

The first episode covers moving from to, as well as securing a blogging related job, CSS books and tutorial sites we enjoy, and a few other things.

I hope you will check it out, and if you have any questions, pop on over to the 449 blog, and leave your questions in the comments area. The first episode is around thirty minutes long, and will probably continue around that length as a weekly release. A huge thanks to Chris for having me on, and I hope to continue joining him as co-host as the show evolves and grows.

Blog Herald Podcast is Back

I didn’t see the episode released on July 5th, but the recent episode, released on August 19th found its way in front of me, and low and behold, Matt Craven is the host of the show. You all might remember Matt as the original publisher of the Blog Herald. I am very excited to see him back online. I have to admit to thinking that the editors at the Blog Herald had made a mistake in their author system before listening to the podcast.

Check out the Blog Herald Podcast.

Podcasting to Generate $400 Mil. in Ads by 2011

Well, if you haven’t started podcasting for fears that you will be unable to monetize all your hard work, you might want to reconsider as an article appearing pretty much everywhere has said that podcasting will generate around $400 million in advertising revenue by 2011. To put that in perspective, that is only four years from now, and so not the far distant future that 2011 feels like in my brain.

That’s according to a report to be released by eMarketer this week, which finds that spending on podcasting advertising will quintuple over the next five years, from a paltry $80 million base in 2006 to a $400 million market in 2011. (Granted, this is still on the small side, considering the $20 billion interactive ad market expected this year.)

eMarketer analyst James Belcher is betting that a familiar Web power player will spark much of that growth: Google.

Belcher expects that by 2008, the 800-pound algorithm gorilla will develop a version of AdSense that can be easily adapted to podcasts, theoretically allowing any Joe Schmoe podcaster to implement advertising. “That should help grow the market,” he said.

Who is up for starting a podcast/podcast network worth a million dollars a year in advertising? I know I would be.
