Eating the Elephant Midweek Open Trackbacks

Posted by Adam Graham on June 19, 2007

I just got “Promoting Your Podcast” by Jason Van Orden in the mail and after reading the first chapter, I’m overwhelmed that there are several more in the book, because I realize I’ve got a lot of work to do on my podcasts, with five seperate ones that need promoted.

So how am I going to do it? It’s like the old joke, “How do you eat an elephant?” Answer: One bite at a time. So, I’ll take Chapter 1’s tips and implement them on my podcasts and then I’ll move onto Chapter 2’s, Chapter 3’s and so on. And within a few months, I’ll have that elephant eaten. Yum.

Now, onto today’s trackback party. Here are the rules.

1) Post about anything that’s in good taste. No porn, no spam, no profanity.
2) Send me a trackback of any tasteful post you want and as soon as I check my blog, I’ll update this post with your link provided you link back to this thread. If your software won’t allow you to send trackbacks, just use the Wizbang Standalone Pinger.
3) Deadline is Wednesday at 11:00 PM MT. Further trackbacks won’t be posted after that time.

For your convenience here’s today’s link. If you’re a registered user, the, trackback should appear below. If not, here’s the process:

Enter the characters as shown in the box and something like this should appear

This is a Trackback URL that’s good one time only so that we can seperate humans from spammer bots.

Below are other great parties:

Can a child be barred, on the basis of his race, from attending a particular public school?
Don’t be so quick to answer that. NRO has The Pending School Cases   and Segregating the Leaders from the Followers, which brings Brown v. Board of Education back to the front burner.Â

At issue before the Court is a pair of cases from Se…

Pro golf and Motherhood
The best playing mother on tour by a mile is Hall of Famer Juli Inkster. Karin Koch, a mother to 2, was part of an online poll- Who is the sexiest female golfer?

Michelle Wie withdraws from John Deere Classic
I agree with Golf World’s Ron Sirak, who says this was the first common sense move by the Wie camp in some time. So far as Michelle playing the LPGA, I’d think it would be wiser for her to take an extended rest to allow her wrists to heal properly.

The Washington Examiner has a fascinating article on how politicians get rich on their “public service:”

Trotter, Pacer, what’s the difference?
I’ve never been in a sulky for a race, but I was around horses often enough when age 10 or 11 to see the obvious difference. Was the driver inebriated or daydreaming?

End of the line
I’ve been on a cruise just once in my life. The wife likes those things, but to me the Caribbean is just more of Florida to me. Sunshine and Palm trees. Alaska may be interesting. A floating hotel beats the scrap yard. Maybe there are enough Middle E…

Some news from Germany. Don’t you just love turnabout?
