Well I’ve decided, after years of staying out of the audio or video streaming world that it’s time to jump back in. For those who know me, you know that I have a lot of energy and sometimes that energy just doesn’t translate as well with writing alone. At the same time, my life is incredibly busy and as I learned years ago, video takes a lot more time to put together than audio.
So I have decided to try (note the emphasis on try) to do a short and sweet weekly podcast with a recap of the top Domaining news from the previous week. Since I read Domaining.com every day and really enjoy following along with everything that’s going on in the domain name world I thought a nice concise recap would be something people might like. Also since I spend just about every waking minute running a SaaS startup I wanted to do more to give back to the Domaining world and thought this would be a fun way to do it.
I said in the beginning of the episode that I’d try to keep it to 5 – 10 minutes but I went over by about a minute on my first episode so let’s just say these episodes are likely going to be 10 – 15 minutes. Hopefully this is a short enough format that you can easily catch-up on the latest Domaining news on your way to work on Monday.
Also, three quick things to point out about this podcast before you scroll down and hit play:
- I am keeping the podcast sponsor-free – what you hear on the podcast is me reporting the news, good, bad, and ugly
- No interviews – I’m going to stick to covering the news, if you want interviews both the DNW Podcast and DomainSherpa are the best place to go, seriously – they rock!
- Focus on other blogs – I don’t want this to be wildly self-promotional so want to highlight other blogs breaking news
Okay, ready to dive in and get started? Here’s the first episode of This Week In Domaining:
