Do you remember the ad for “Try It, You’ll Like It”? I forget what the ‘it’ was, but I’ve always championed that phrase. Often, simply trying does work. But sometimes it really bombs. Well, I fear I’m in the middle of just such a situation, and I’d love to hear from you as to what you think. You see, given that publicizing books has shifted considerably since I wrote my academic works, I’m discovering that nowadays, you have to be extremely knowledgeable about social media. Well, I’m not. At the suggestion of a fellow retired academic, I decided I should start podcasting. If you’ve ever looked into this you know two things: First, on the surface, it sounds very simple…that is till you start learning about it. Second, even if you buy the simplest recommended equipment it’s not cheap. Well, being me, I bought the equipment. THEN I began reading. Do I really have time to pursue my true love of writing and produce a weekly podcast? All I can say is, ‘hmm’….
Any helpful hints?
