Google’s Participation In The Podcast Medium

Google has finally followed suit this year, and joined Apple in the podcast directory world. Why not? After all it's even more data collection for their servers. This may even have amazing impacts on shows that didn't have a way to expand and rise on the iTunes platform like the pro's. Perhaps we will see new shows finally catch a break, or maybe it will just be another Android app in the Google Play store. Even though it's been months now, we [...]

Meet My Dad, Guy W. Mulholland

Before we jump into it, I want to say upfront that this is certainly the abbreviated version for the blog. I intend to detail as much information as possible until I can't think of anymore memories to add. I am initially publishing this 3 years after his death on the day. I plan to detail the beginning until the split in a future update. Let's start from my most vivid memories. From the Split at 8 in 1986 I come [...]

Convincing Friends & Family Your Passion Is Greater Than Money

I can answer this with a couple of personal stories that are relatable. Someone asked this a few months back on Quora and I wanted to expand on it more and have some fun going through some of the best times in my life. I am a lucky dude by all accounts, but I am surrounded by people who love structure, money, or have no clue on what they would do with freedom to do what they like. It's mind boggling to me, [...]

Should You Create A Podcast Jingle, Or Just Buy One

Before we jump right into the in's and out's of adding some cool royalty-free music to your intros, I want to point out that there are many ways to edit and improve your episodes. You can start by having good equipment, working on tighter scripts, or even polishing the audio levels in Audacity. This piece of a podcast or even a video makes a difference, but not an overwhelming piece of the puzzle. This topic is geared towards the end process and [...]

How To Build An eCommerce Website For Free

I have been building eCommerce sites for years and it couldn't be any easier for someone who doesn't code (like me). There are many free scripts out there that are open source and we will dive into them shortly. I want to outline everything you need to build a path from start to finish without spending a ton of money. There is a new world in shopping online today and you can be a part of that if you want to build [...]

Self-Hosted Email Software: Sendy Review

I have been desperately trying to find a solution to building an email list that didn't cost a fortune to send an email to my readers. I have tried using MailChimp which is fine, but expensive if you grow out of the free tier which is always the goal. I have not used any of the other big named ones so there is always a measure that I might miss. Note: I am not being paid, asked, or compensated by [...]

Great WordPress Themes That Are Worth Buying

I have seen this question a lot across different social media communities for podcasting and the answer is usually the same. Frankly, the days of "themed" Wordpress themes are on their way out. This is because more theme developers are putting more flexibility into their products than ever before. Generally, this might not exist for a free theme, but I don't use free themes any more. I will not be covering free themes in this because I am not actively using [...]

My SEO In the Past & My SEO Approach Now

I think this conversation can be beneficial for many people, and for others, a walk down memory lane. Time and knowledge has been collected through the years by large companies and absolutely changed how we rank in organic search each day. There are hundreds of companies collecting our information for the purpose of targeting us to buy something based on out profile. I particularly hate these companies and they know this which is why they don't promote themselves publicly. With [...]

Is Squarespace Right for Podcasts?

We hear about them everywhere we seek entertainment from. It seems that every YouTube channel or podcast show is sponsored by Squarespace or Audible. Why is this? I used to scratch my head in trying to understand why this is and I quickly realized that this is not what it seems. My gut says that they probably open the gates for everyone to join their affiliate program and pay for only the leads that each affiliate sends their way. Simply [...]

Where To Find Blog Writers To Hire For Content Creation

There are plenty of people around the world that know content is the foundation of their online presence. Without it we are nothing online. If nothing else, it truly separates companies that focus on pushing sales copy and wait for sales from those that publish quality content. People want to read and share great information in all mediums, and it helps to build a relationship between you and them. If you just happened to stumble onto this post, you may [...]

Having To Choose Between Your Significant Other Or Your Job

This is a switch from some of the other topics I have covered, but still a great question from someone that clearly has a decision to make. Sometimes this happens and I know I have been here before as well. Relationships are hard and so is putting food on the table. I was listening to Joe Rogan's (JRE) podcast and there was a line that I appreciated in many ways. It was said as "100 years ago we didn't have [...]

Postmatic Deserves a Spotlight & a Full Review

To start things out I need to clear up a couple things that might be confusing upfront. This post is about Postmatic Basic, the free version of their plugin that you can reply by email to comments. They also have Postmatic that is a subscription service that I am not covering in this review because I feel that the majority of people wanting to know more will be Basic users until they bring in the revenue to justify the cost.

95% of the Internet Could Disappear Tomorrow & Would Be Fine

I have said this many times to people in the office or behind my keyboard like a true warrior. The Cosmos series with Neil DeGrasse-Tyson covers the 5 extinctions in Season 1, Episode 2 (S01E02) which is dark and a reminder that it could be gone in a moment. I firmly believe that if the 6th one was the internet and wiped away 95% of the websites, we wouldn't notice very much. This only matters if the top 100 websites [...]

Postmatic Basic & Subscription for WordPress Comments!

It's time to run through the plugin that changed the conversation...literally. This one was saved for last because it was the most important of all of the other offerings from Postmatic. Postmatic is the single most important thing that has changed the entire way we see comments from just a quick "hit & run" to how Google engineered Google+ and Gmail for fast and easy communication. This is the only plugin that I know allows you to subscribe to the [...]

Retirement & Traveling Asia For the Near Future

If you have been reading a bit then you probably already know that we (my family & I) are preparing for a big move. I don't know where to yet, but I am retiring from the U.S. Air Force in a few months and we are going to the Philippines for a bit to do all of my VA paperwork. Making sure the healthcare is in order has to be priority one. It's a large move because of what the [...]
