As well as siding with Dave Taylor on the ‘podcasting is a fad’ argument, and therefore agin my ‘middle path’ approach, Paul feels I’ve let Blogarama off far too lightly on their lack of adequate backup.
Well, much as I respect Paul, and Dave, I’ve also heard persuasive arguments from other seasoned online business travellers, such as Andy Wibbels who runs a great Podcasting Bootcamp, on potential business benefits from podcasting. So I’m not prepared to close the door on it. Nor do I intend to risk having to say, down the track, ‘Gee, if only I’d… I coulda ….’ I’m keeping an open mind.
And as for my being soft on Blogarama, well, I don’t have shares and I have other things I want to focus on. Besides, as I mentioned in my previous post on this, I don’t have a perfect record in the backup stakes either. But Paul is right, businesses need to take backup very seriously.
