Perfcast Episode 19 – Sunny Side Up

While last weeks show contained a number of depressing news items, this weeks show provided the upshot. Venture Capitalists are still investing in companies with hefty amounts, a hosted blog service disappears, what happens to companies when they don’t pay for their advertising campaign, growing your blog on minimal time, and a model who sells Google are all topics of discussion this week. We also answered a listener email and announced that David and I will be starting a series on the show where we cover the various aspects of Starting, Maintaining, and Exiting a blog. We’ll start from square one and go through the rungs in detail.

Next week is the first episode in this series called ‘The Blog Prelaunch‘. Things you should do or think about before you decide to create a blog.

You’d be writing about 5 – 10 posts per week, a mix of short news posts, reviews and occasional round-ups.
