Why Listen to a Blogging Podcast?
Maybe you’re not so convinced about this whole blogging podcast thing. Why should you listen to blogging podcasts? There are many reasons!
First, blogging podcasts help you keep abreast of current trends in the industry. This is more important than ever today, especially as Google and social media platforms continue updating their algorithms.
Listening to blogging podcasts also teaches you advanced blogging techniques and skills, helping you understand not only your own blog, but also your competition and how you can set yourself apart from others.
Blogging podcasts are also well connected with each other, making them a great way to connect with likeminded bloggers and online marketers who also work in your space.
Finally, one of the biggest reasons? Inspiration. Blogging requires consistency, even when the going gets tough and your to-do list isn’t new and sparkly like it was before. Listening to blogging podcasts can inspire and motivate you to keep going!
Quick Tips for Listening to a Blogging Podcast
Listen, I know you’re busy. There’s not a blogger alive who doesn’t have a full schedule! So if blogging podcasts are so important, then how do you find time to listen to them?
First, consider creating a routine or incorporating podcasts into your existing routines. One of the reasons why podcasts have become so popular is that you can listen to them while you work on other things and make the most of every moment.
Also, make sure you subscribe to podcasts using your favorite mobile app. The easier it is to access your blogging podcasts, the more likely it will be that you will actually listen to them regularly, especially when you get notified of new episodes.
Don’t do this alone! If you have a blogging buddy or business partner, you can also listen to episodes and discuss them together.
However you choose to listen to blogging podcasts, remember to focus on what works best for YOU. Some of the blogging podcasts on this list won’t really apply to your blog or interests. That’s okay. Don’t try to listen to everything at once; just pick and choose.
