Runblogger Podcast #13: Starting a Running Blog (or Podcast)

This is the first in what I hope will be an informative and helpful series of posts on starting a running blog and/or podcast. As a relative newcomer to both (I’ve been doing this blog for just over a year, the podcast for a few months), I’ve been through a lot of the challenges involved in getting a blog or podcast set up and running. Given that these experiences are still relatively new and still fresh in my mind, I thought I’d put together a series of episodes on blogging and podcasting to give you a feel for what the process is like.  My hope is that both new and experienced bloggers and podcasters might find something of use, and I’d encourage you to send me questions if you have them (my e-mail link can be found in the header at the top of this webpage, or you can leave a comment on this post).

In this first installment of the series, I discuss my own entrance into the world of social media and blogging, and give you a few tips on things to think about when setting up your own blog, and suggestions for how to build an audience, both of which are topics that I’ll expand on in more detail in future installments of this series.
