Every now and then something comes along that is actually worth showing a bit of pride in. It’s just bragging, nothing but ego stroking, but I want this recorded for posterity. I want to share it. I’m, well, proud.
If you look closely you might see a familiar podcast in the New & Noteworthy section right there on iTunes’ podcasting front page. That’s right, the tech show I do on a weekly basis with Richard, Andrew and guests made it to the front page. With some interesting results:
Tech it or Leave It reached number 4 in the technology podcast charts!
Actually if I’m honest this is a bit chicken and the egg. Did we hit number 4 because we were new and noteworthy? Or did we become noteworthy because we reached number 4?
Wait a minute…
Who cares? The fact is both¬†accomplishments¬†are incredible for a podcast which launched with almost no marketing, no pre-launch press and was advertised no more or less than any Simply Syndicated show. Quite how we hit the zeitgeist I don’t know. I do know¬†subsequent¬†episodes haven’t quite managed the same trick. I don’t let that diminish what we accomplished, though. As I said to Andrew and Rich before and or during the show last night… “this is just us talking”. When having a chat once a week with your friends leads to results like this, well, I’m not going to complain.
