Moot the Hoople reunion gig, 2009.

Hello folks.  Today should be a podcast day but I am still having issues on when to record the stupid thing so there will be no crying babies or kids shows in the background.  I am still planning on doing podcasts hoping to attract some more readers/listeners to this site!

I want to take a short poll  cuing off of Ralph’s Monday post.  (check out this picture.  I type in “Ralph’s” and I get Mick Ralphs from Mott the Hoople.  Go figure.)

The poll is two fold and answered in comments.  First, is anyone besides Ralph and Bob listening?  let me know.  Second, what would you like to be hearing from the podcast?  Are there topics you would like to hear about?  I am planning some interviews with interesting bloggers for the near future as well.

Just as an aside, a pop-up window just popped up and showed me possible matches from match.com.  First of all, I have never  even been to match.com so I know it is a random ad, right?  Then how ‘come all of the “possible best matches” on there are GUYS????  I am not sure where they get their demographic information but I am ready to protest….

So that is all for today, at least right now.  Go read something from the archives or head over to Bob’s site at Juicymaters.com, or even Ralphs site at ralphcarlsonblog.com.  If you are really bored, head over to my site at justinsbrainpan.com.  All of us have so much to write about that we have to spread it around.  Like fertilizer.

Anyhow, please answer my questions to the best of your ability, your feedback will be invaluable to the future of the podcast.  You canleave a comment or hit the email form over on the right, or click the email link under any of our names over there.  Thanks in advance.

  1. Podcasts are one of those things that I mean to listen to, but never really get round to. I just don’t have time to sit and pay attention to what I’m hearing at the moment!

    So I can’t really comment.

    • See that is the feedback I need, if you are not getting around to listening, that may be a bigger trend than I previously thought. I tend to put all of my podcasts that I want to listen to in iTunes and then put it onto my mp3 player to listen as I can. some I am caught up on, some I am really late on.

  2. Justin, first the important stuff. You getting guys as the perfect match. If you are on Facebook, go to your profile. Check it out closely and you will find somewhere it says something like “interested in”. The default is men. If you didn’t change it you will get ads based on that profile, even from other sites. Facebook does sell your info. It happened to me.

    As for the podcasts. To be honest I listen to them about half or a little more of the time. If I start (which I do on most) and don’t get interrupted by something like the phone, I finish. If something interrupts I rarely go back.

    One thing that might get them listened to more is something…I have no idea what…to make the post visually appealing so folks will click on that “play” button.

    • thanks for the facebook info, I had neither box checked so I was getting both. Your feedback on podcasts is good, how many people don’t go back to the thing if interrupted. I guess I need to figure out what will make people want to come back after the phone call. I am not sure that visually appealing is necessarily the answer, it must be the content that is desierable. I have several podcasts that I listen to because I like to hear what they have to say, and I will go back after a break. I was trying to do short podcasts that wouldn’t need to be returned to. I must think….

  3. Most of the time when I fire up iTunes I want music, because I’m working on other things. Makes no sense to have people talking at me while I work – I don’t listen, and it’s distracting lol.
