Blogs and Social Networks Podcasting

Podcasting allows us to publish audio or video on the web, which then allows others to subscribe to our media and to get automatic updates.

Podcasting is really a digital video and/or audio recording(s) that we make available to others online. Let’s focus on computer based podcasting for now.

Sites like Podbean, Audacity, Blog Talk Radio, YouTube, and Utterli a just a few of the popular podcasting themed sites on the net.

Formatting with podcasts is most always in MP3, Sites like iTunes will auto convert WMA files for you which is quite useful in general.

When you upload your videos to Youtube or Blip.tv you get and ebed or source type code to place these web widgets in code form into the HTML format of your blog or web sites.

Beginners tips would be first and foremost to start with shorter length podcasts and practice, leaving time for editing and the small learning curve that will make your podcasts extraordinary 🙂

Podbean and Utterli are two very unique Blogs and Social Networks sites and with sites like Blog Talk Radio, it is a podcasters wonderland on the Internt today. These are hosters for your podcasts: Podbean, Utterli, Blog Talk Radio, and if you have a musicians account on MySpace, uploaded files being stored right on this musician MySpace profile page is also a holder for your music podcasts. Utterli allows users to record and publish audio, video, text, and images directly from users cell phones and offer a snazzy web widget to embed on your personal blog, social network, or web site for instant broadcasts any where 🙂

If you have not gotten your feet wet to date with podcasting, why not try out a Blog Podcasting site like Podbean. Podcast hosting and social subscribing. When you add a subscription to Podbean, there is also a button to simultaneously add it to your iTunes as well! Podbean gives you a list of the hottest tags or keywords right now, the most subscribed to, most listened to, and available podcasts right now.

Let’s go back to iTunes for a moment and check out the podcasts on podcasting! After listening into a few of these you should well be ready to get going with some of your own. There is a podcast on podcasting called Podcasting 411 Inside the Podcasters Studio Show with Rob and then check out Podcasting For Dummies Show with Tee Morris. ITunes is a major podcasters dream, ipods and iphones along with your PC make iTunes rock 🙂 ITunes is free to download and takes just a few seconds depending on your connection speed.

Blog Talk Radio is also free to use like Podbean and Utterli with no downloads required.

ITunes generally podcasters “take” from this site, meaning they download free and purchased podcasts from the iTunes store, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. ITunes also has music, movies, TV shows, applications, and audio books to download to your computer and sync to your ipod or iphone and take with you.

Blog Talk Radio hosts input good content onto the net for others to be able to download and play at their convenience, so there is more of a give and take relationship for users. Blog Talk Radio shows are alo inputted and download from iTunes. Listeners use Blog Talk Radio for information, news, education, how to’s, and entertainment. When the users find a show they enjoy, they can download either from Blog Talk Radio or subscribe to the show through iTunes. When a new show gets broadcast, users and subscribers can be alerted and automatically download the shows. There are multiple options here with the iTunes download.

With Blog Talk Radio they have the option of a free downloadable toolbar creating easy log in accesss, what’s on the air, popular, the best of Blog Talk Radio, and featured shows on right now. Easy acces to your friends and favorites as well.

One of the coolest free audio tools out there is Audacity. A bit on the techy side, but not near the learning curve of programs like Camtasia.

Begin your own adventure into podcasting, we would love to hear or see you on the net.
