I get asked all the time what tools I use to podcast. Some of these links are affiliate links and help support the Literary Roadhouse.
If you have a website, you might notice that Literary Roadhouse is fast website. I’ve used a lot of hosting services over the years including total solutions and word press hosts. Traffic Planet has been the best run hosting solution I’ve ever used and the customer service has made my life much easier. If you are looking for a website host, I cannot recommend Traffic Planet enough.
I’ll admit that I came to WordPress kicking and screaming. Previously I used Square Space and loved it, but once I had more than one website it became too expensive. The switch to WordPress ended up being a blessing and showed me just how powerful a self hosted website built on a WordPress can be.
If there is one piece of advice I can give you, it would be this. Do not host your podcast media files on you website. Use a media host. Using a media host provides stability, keeps your website loading times down and gives your listeners a better listening experience. I use Libsyn because they are stable, the feeds are clean, have great statistics and they have excellent customer service.
