End of the week notes
Well it's been a busy week work wise and Angry Beanie wise, over all I'm pretty happy with how things are going.
I'm currently working on making some changes to the Angry Beanie site. I've already added the three latest episodes as blocks on the front page featuring HTML5 players, but I'm also looking at rebuilding the Show and Episode pages. I'm just not happy with the layouts, too busy and not exactly attractive to look at.
Aside from actually putting together the content, I have two focii for Angry Beanie. Getting more people to listen and putting together a fund raising plan that will allow me to expand what AB can do.
On the getting more people to listen side of things, I've been playing around with how I promote each episode on twitter. I've noticed that if I include a direct link to the audio file I get a lot more downloads than if I just link to the show page. Some of those downloads seem to be bots, but a lot seem to be legitimate listeners.
On the other hand, and this has to be me doing it wrong, Facebook and Google+ just don't seem to be doing it for me. I have 23 likers for the Angry Beanie facebook page and 29 circlers of the Angry Beanie google+ page (along with 81 +1's) but I'm not really getting any interaction. I tend to suck as a community building guy I guess :)
That's it for the moment, never fear, there will be more political and technical posts coming. It's not just going to be all Angry Beanie all the time :)
