Now in my tenth year of being a podcaster, it is by no means surprising that one of the topics I’m asked about over and over again is how to start podcasting. I always recommend starting off with the minimum essentials and then slowly building up your gear as you go along. In other words, don’t make a huge investment in hardware and software initially. You can always upgrade and enhance your set up as you go along. This way, if you find it is something that isn’t for you or perhaps you simply don’t have the time you thought you would had when you first decided on doing it, you can stop without having invested too much money into it.
I was very excited to learn that BlogWorld and New Media Expo are doing their first east coast event this May when they announced it a few weeks ago. Previous Blogworld & New Media Expo events took place in Las Vegas, NV. For once I will now be able to attend a expo without having to fly there (I don't mind the actual flying, it is everything else that is part of the commercial airline experience I could do without).
Although the dates are quickly approaching, you can still save 15% off your Thursday, weekend, or full access passes for this year's Blogworld and New Media Expo (2010) using the special link below.
Although written for last year's expo, the reasons are still valid for this year, check out "5 Reasons To Go Blogworld & New Media Expo…".

Next month is the Blogworld & New Media Expo 2009. October 15 - 17, 2009 is the first expo/confonrence after Blogworld merged with the New Media Expo. It is a trade show for anyone involved with new media. Be it podcasting, blogging, social media, vblogging, etc. there is something for you at the Blogworld & New Media Expo.
I attended last year for the New Media Expo 2008 in Las Vegas, NV and found it enlightening to be around like-minded individuals working in new media.
