You can. | Nicole Simon's Useful Sounds

You can.

Eric Rice in "Moving Mountains: Engadget and The Used":

I know there will be lots of questions about this. So, here's a few talking points to grok where I stand on things:

1. Listen to the community. They can be smarter than you.
2. You can do podcasts for the love of it.
3. You can do podcasts for the biz of it.
4. Indie, free, or Creative Commons music simply rocks.
5. And so can big famous music.
6. Fear is stupid.
7. Teach people everything you know.
8. You will never please everyone 100%, so don't trip. See #6.

I would add: Be authentic. Be what you want to be. And stand up for that.
My shows aren't necessarily for everyone, either. Shit, I don't even promote voting in all the podcasting directories.
Of course not. Because it is not priority, link love is more important than some Votings.

Don't get me wrong, I know they all cry for votes in the directories, but while they are still learning how voting can be compromised (been there, not done that but sure am evil enough to know some other ways to do it), we make voting the grown up way. ;)
