I vow never to have a “links of the day” post. Why? When I do read such links, I am frequently rewarded. However, I rarely click on such posts, because generally the title of the post is “Today’s links” maybe with the date– no info about what’s in the links.
The same is true of Podcasts. I subscribe to Chris Lydon’s Open Source, for example, but for a long time I rarely listened. Why? Because the episode descriptions that popped up in myPodder were generic show boilerplate, nothing about the show or the guests in that particular download (thankfully, that has changed).
I try to remember this as I label blog and podcasts– give a quick snapshot of what’s inside, or prepare to be passed over (by me, anyway).
