Random Bits

Episode 8 – 8/20/2007

Guest: Chris Garrett, Blogger ChrisG.com

Background: Developer, Entrepreneur, and Blogger

Total Time: 24 minutes

This is part 2 of my talk with Chris Garrett. I strongly recommend you listen to part 1 if you haven’t done so yet! In part 1 we ended by discussing that if you build it, they will not come and made the exception for your big celebrity blog. Your average blogger, like a small plumbing company, will need to work hard at achieving an audience!

As an aside, please forgive me for not creating an intro for this episode. My microphone decided to quit working πŸ™

Podcast Highlights

Hi,

I got the following error msg when trying to download from the dl page:

Warning: readfile() [function.readfile]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /home/.shiloh/mangeletti/search-this.com/downloads.php on line 46

Warning: readfile(http://www.randombitspodcast.com/RandomBits-ChrisGarrett-Part2.mp3) [function.readfile]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /home/.shiloh/mangeletti/search-this.com/downloads.php on line 46

Would be great if you could check this!

@FrankB: let me look into it for you. What Browser are you using? Oh and thanks for saying something and not just taking off…

@Golgotha: Always glad to report errors and I really want to hear part2 πŸ˜‰

I use Opera 9.22 and have so far downloaded without any probs with Opera 9.2x.

The error message btw comes up for all podcasts not only this one.

Thanks for helping!

Thanks,
Mark

Enjoyed the podcast guys.

I’ve not yet seen a plumber blogging as yet. Any plumber that is any good has a client list so long they can’t service them all.

I’m glad you liked it Jack. The reason I chose the plumbing company was to show that even a company that you would never expect to have a blog could be successful with it!

Very cool Podcast!

Plumbers should own blogs. A daily “ask the plumber” would be great for business.
