WordPress.com is not a secret.
Podcasting is not a secret.
It almost seems as though podcasting on WordPress.com is a secret.

Welcome to Episode 1 of:
The How To Podcast on WordPress.com Podcast

  1. My name is Mike Murphy and this is the podcast about the step by step guide to setting up a podcast and website on WordPress.com that I recently published on the Amazon Kindle Store.
  2. The secret is out about just how affordable, reliable and flexible podcast hosting really is on WordPress.com.
  3. This podcast is the audio companion to the eBook and will provide an overview and behind the scenes view of the guide and tutorial.
  4. This podcast will walk you through the guide to make it easier to follow and will also include tips and tricks and tidbits that will either help you in podcasting or pull from the material that did not make the final draft.
  5. This podcast was launched by following the steps in the tutorial and can be found in all of the major podcast directories and be sure to subscribe to it on your favorite pod-catcher to get automatic updates of new episodes.

The podcast and all show notes can be found on the WordPress.com website howtopodcastonwordpress.com which was also created following the guide.

The Book: How To Podcast on WordPresss.com

This eBook is a start-to-finish comprehensive guide and tutorial on how to setup and launch a podcast and website using WordPress.com.

I wrote this guide to raise awareness of WordPresss.com as an affordable and reliable podcasting and website hosting option for both new and experienced podcasters and to walk you step-by-step through the process of setting up a podcast and website on WordPress.com. It’s the missing tutorial.

The organization of the guide is simple:

You how to submit your podcast to other podcast directories besides Apple iTunes.

The Guide is available now on Amazon and it would mean the world to me if you purchased a digital copy and spread the word. I would also love your comments and feedback so you can email me at mike@mikemurphy.co with questions or comments or to just say hey.
