So, this isn't really the best way to get exposure to your podcast.

Your text isn't very descriptive, the linked text is always the same "RaZin_do_'bo Entertainment" (which does nothing to tell us what to expect from the link, or that it's even a podcast) and you've posted 4-5 of these kinds of threads in to the travel stories section over the past few days.

This kind of activity is considered spam in most online communities. I know this is not your intention, but I still have to issue you at least one warning point for being so excessive.

You'd get a lot farther by taking the time to write the who, what, where and why of that episode (without giving everything away) and including a direct link to the content you want to share (not embedding the link into text). Also, please make it clear what users should expect when clicking the link.

I will, and I understand what you're saying and actually thought of that as I was sharing but for some reason didn't find it much a big deal. But I'll be more reflective on how I post thing's. Nothing more to post atm, these were just most recent from other platforms, appreciate the warning ⚠ I'll make sure I'm more careful with all the 'W's' with future posts, thanks.

No worries, I actually forgot to issue you the warning, so I'll just let it go. If you want some help on effective ways to share your content just let me know.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
