Happy New Year

Hi!…random blog-reader or person I know!

I’m a bit lax about posting stuff on my blog, since I’ll usually share stuff on Twitter and let those updates feed over to my Facebook status updates. I usually save the bigger topics and things for the blog, but because it takes more time to update I’m usually pretty lazy about it.

Anyway, I’m going to try to update at least once a week this year and see how that goes. Short or long updates, whatever, but I just want to put something here, so whether it’s links to some of my photos or other projects, or just commenting about stupid shit I’ve been noticing lately, it’ll go here at some point.

So. What’s been happening with me.

I suppose the main thing I’ve been wanting to tout on here is the podcast I do with a friend at work. It’s called Digital Porridge and we’ve just done our 11th episode and it’s gone up today.

If you’re not familiar with podcasts, basically they’re like radio shows that you can download and listen to on your phone, MP3 player, computer, etc. Our is just over half an hour long and we try to do one each week. Mostly it’s myself and my friend Mat telling stories, comparing cultures (he’s British) and goofing off, and hopefully entertaining whoever listens.

The link to the main web page/blog is here, and we’re even officially on iTunes, and if you have an RSS reader like Google Reader you can use this RSS link to subscribe.

We’ve been getting some nice feedback, even from people who I don’t know personally – I think the next step is to really push our listeners to get their friends to subscribe. We have nearly 30 subscribers via Feedburner RSS links, and who knows how many on iTunes because they don’t provide any info at all, but I’d say it’s less than 15-20. Because we’re pretty small fry in the podcast universe I’ve been trying to get all of the people I know with iTunes to subscribe, even if they don’t listen, and give us a rating (maybe listen to a show or two if you feel weird about rating us without giving us a try). This requires almost no effort on anyone’s part to subscribe, and a good rating gives us a nice bump and with enough good ratings we might get featured on a blog or even on iTunes. So please subscribe to us in iTunes!
