Blabbing About Podcasting: Getting Your Message To The Masses

Back a few months ago, I was talking to Sara Broers who manages our North Iowa Social Media Breakfast Club about how we were going to  round out the year.  What sort of program would we do two days before Christmas in two feet of snow and expect people to show up?  We didn’t expect people to drive in inclement weather, but we wanted to remain consistent as far as our monthly programming went.  I told her I would think of something.

In September I was at the “Social Media Rockstar Event” in Minnesota and I heard Janet Johnson give a presentation on “Blab” and how she uses it for podcasting and my wheels started to spin.  At the same time, Jason Falls had just launched a podcast called “100 Proof: The Badass Radio Show.”  In the meantime I also knew that since there were three open seats on my “Blab” that I could have one more guest and I’d been a fan of Bridget Willard and her “You Too Can Be A Guru” YouTube channel.

I talked to Janet and she said she’d be glad to appear, while Jason said, “Hell, yeah!!” and Bridget said, “That’s 6:45am here in California!! But, I’ll be happy to be on the Blab.”   Naturally, I had talked to Jason and Janet back in September and so after a friendly reminder was sent out, I  officially got them on board for the December 23rd event.

I wanted to feature three different styles of podcast.  Throw a stick and you can come up with MANY topics that everyone is an “expert” at, so I wanted to feature Jason, not because of his digital marketing experience, but for his work in radio and having fun with the podcast.  I wanted to feature Janet, because her co-host of her podcast is in another state and Bridget because hers is a regularly scheduled Blab.

I’m happy to report that the event went off without a hitch and there were a lot of viewers and a lot of interest in the room.  As you can see, many of the people in the crowd (23 men and 7 women) were live tweeting and posting on social media about what the presenters were talking about.   I thought it was probably more important to show the audience, since I was going to turn it over to questions at the end of the event.

By the way, during the show, it was raining and the temperature was 35 degrees.

Here are some of the links to the speakers’ websites and Twitter info!

The Computer Guy on Podnutz!

About once a year I get a request from the gang at Podnutz to do a live show that will be recorded and saved for later.  Many times it’s just a podcast and this time it was a live video show.  I have been with others before on the show and I’ve been interviewed one on one.  Jeff does a fine job with the show and it is (very) professional in my opinion!  I’m always glad to help him out with content and sometimes we stay on topic and sometimes we drift a bit, but Jeff always brings us back.  Thanks to the other guys as well for rounding out the program!

It’s always a pleasure!

Tutorial – Removing Facebook Apps

“It seemed like a good idea at the time!”  That’s what most people thought when they downloaded “The Most Popular Words Used In Your Profile” app this past week.  Over the past several days, it was revealed that the app really wasn’t that keen on keeping your information secure, so The Computer Guy to the rescue and has made a video on what to do in removing the apps that you no longer use or that may be harmful to your ONLINE health.

Enjoy and be careful, even when you set apps to “Only Me” they can still collect your private information!

Pat’s On Periscope – Show 20

Well, I finally had to block a few people who were always being rude and inconsiderate to my “scopes.”  When I do these, I like to give 100% to the video because I know I am going to repurpose it into several areas.  I guess I wasn’t clear enough when I was doing the video and some guy kept pointing out I only had 4 viewers.

Nevertheless, I got through the video and discussed a serious matter, the terrorist attack in France and the scams and hoaxes that have already hit email boxes around the world.  Please, check out all solicitations for money in regards  to the attacks.  There are people out there just waiting to scam you out of cash.

I also talked a bit about Black Friday and I do have The Computer Guy gift cards for sale.  They are $10 each and you can buy as many as you need for that loved one who may need some extra help this holiday season!

Pat’s On Periscope – Show 19

This week I review the recent Midwest Social Media Summit held in Mason City on 10/24/15.  I gave it a solid 9 out of 10 for their first time out of the gate!!  A lot was presented and people raved about the day as a whole!  Sadly, I think my volume was a bit weak on this video, so you’ll have to turn it up a bit!
