When you decide that you want to create your own podcast there are a number of steps that need to be followed. First, I would say that you need to be committed and stick with it. I would say on average that you should post a new podcast around once a week. Before you actually record yourself it is good to have a general idea and plan on what it is you are talking about. Before you turn on the mic you should´nt have a word for word script but you should have an outline on what you´re going to say. You should decide the topic and format and how long you generally want it to be. This will give you a focus that will help you to gain more listeners. Then you need to create the podcast. Nowadays there are many different audio programs you can use that allow you to record your voice and edit it with just your computer. One of the best programs to use is Audacity. Afterwards, you have to decide which way you want to upload it to the internet so that people can subscribe to it and download it. There are many services such as Soundcloud and blip.tv that allow you to upload mp3 files and share it with others. It is important to come up with a name for your podcast that catches the attention of people. Also, when uploading your podcast make sure to create an ID3 tag, which can be done in Audacity, so that you can put the information of your podcast there. The final step is for you to do some self-promotion of your podcast through any and all channels you can. Whether it´s your Twitter, Facebook, website forums, it is important that you draw attention and get people noticing your work. Once you follow all of these steps you will become a podcast-making expert.
