On Thursday we resume Blogging and Beyond and we’re moving to BlogTalkRadio. Last week I did a test show to see how the host module works and get some of my questions answered. Except for the fact that I put myself on mute for the first few minutes, everything went very well. Glad I got that glitch out of the way with a test run!
I’m impressed by the BlogTalkRadio system and it’s especially good for those of us who like to be in control of our technology! The user interface is pretty simple to figure out and use during the show. I also like the page that is set up for our show. You’ll be able to listen to the shows live, or listen to archived show, see what’s coming next, and subscribe via iTunes, Bloglines, MyYahoo, Google and AOL. It’s all automated. I didn’t have to do a thing to get that set up.
There’s a great feature that lets you subscribe to be notified by email 5 minutes before the show starts! You never have to miss a show again. Stay tuned as we ramp up to relaunch on April 19 with Internet Strategist Lena West.
