We want to debunk the thought that podcasting is easy! Podcasting is hard work and it’s a medium that is still evolving! There is more than pressing “record” and talking. It takes time, effort, money, and work for it to become successful. It’s tedious to even do one episode. We have to consider scheduling, research, recording, production, social media, and so forth. It takes many hours to prepare and edit. Sometimes the “recording” part is the quickest portion. There is art behind a podcast. As listeners, we may forget or not even know the work that goes behind doors. Finally, podcasting is an engaging and fast-growing medium. Since it’s still growing and evolving, we have to adapt, learn, and grow as well. That is challenging, but I am sure any podcaster will agree that it’s worth it. Read more>>

It’s not their fault either – marketing practices used seem to be very tricky with their packaging and how they market to their customers.

This loop-hole – is the word “fragrance” itself. Read more>>
