Podcasts are great, but so are blogs!

2005-12-17 :: thoughtpress@gmail.com (Andy Otto)

Well it seems for sure that I have lost time to podcast for the time being. What a wonderful medium. I hope you enjoyed the Thought Press Podcast and found it enlightening and informative. Hopefully it will come back at some point.

In the meanwhile...
Please enjoy the brand new Thought Press blog. It will be full of insights and analyses of news, the internet, and possibly things Macintosh. And, while podcasts can be convenient to listen to in the car, put our new RSS feed into your news agreggator or into Gmail Web Clips so you can always have exciting information at a glance. So, head to thoughtpress.wordpress.com and see new information in a sleek clean look.

On this podcast: Pakistan has world focus now as they try and clean up from a devastating earthquake that killed tens of thousands.

We focus on a special topic today: Self-publishing. It's a route that provides more control and is less expensive, but many authors avoid it due to little knowledge or experience in the area. This is where Publish and be damned, enters. It makes it so simple and easy to publish your book that anyone can do it for much less than what traditional publishers charge. And, they do a lot of the leg work for you.
