Please Spread The Word!
This week, I started the episode off by talking about my good friends Barry and Lynne Morgan, from SimpleGoodLifeNetwork.com. Many of you may recall that I interviewed Barry and Lynne back in episode 208 of Podcast Answer Man.

Barry emailed me a few weeks ago to let me know that he has been diagnosed with an advanced stage of pancreatic cancer and had asked me if I would please pray for himself and Lynne as well during this time. This week, Barry had asked if I would be willing to have a call with him to discuss a few decisions he needed to make and we had that call on Tuesday of this week.

I was so inspired by Barry's courage and faith in the midst of what he is going through and I became very excited to learn about how he plans to share his faith and his journey in a brand new podcast that he and Lynne are launching at http://GodIsBiggerThanCancer.com.

I want to personally ask that everyone go and subscribe to their podcast, give it a five star rating, and leave a review for them in iTunes by CLICKING HERE. I would also like to ask you to follow them on TWITTER and like them on FACEBOOK. And if you know anyone who has been touched by cancer, would you please tell them to check out Barry & Lynne's podcast.

As I am writing this, I know at the first episode is not yet online. However, I know that Barry and Lynne have set aside everything else and will be focusing on three things. Those three things are prayer, seeking wise counsel and searching through information on various treatment options, and sharing everything they learn and their experience in this podcast as means of being a Faith, Hope and Healing resource for those afflicted with the deadliest forms of cancer and their families and loved ones.

Please do help me spread the word!

Posts Per Category Plugin
Did you ever wish you could set the number of posts that are included in the rss feed for each category independently? Up till now, you only had the option of a general setting that controlled the number of posts that are included in the RSS feeds of your site overall.

However, my great friend Pat Flynn from SmartPassiveIncome.com has created a FREE PLUGIN that allows you manually choose how many posts for each category independently.

In this episode, Pat joins me to explain why and how this Posts Per Category Plugin came about. Pat all mentioned the WP Smush.it Plugin and the site web-sniffer.net.

What If You Can't Talk?
Nick called in to ask for advice of what to do if your voice is giving out on you and you have a weekly show that must go on. I shared a few options that came to mind off the top of my head. Do you have some additional thoughts? If so, please leave a comment in the comments section below.

Getting Audio From My Computer Speakers?
Tony called in to ask if there was an easy way to listen to music from his computer speakers on hi iMac outside of manually unplugging the cord from the speaker jack of the iMac each and every time he's not using his mixer and wants to listen to iTunes, Pandora, or when watching a YouTube video.

I shared how I handle this on my own setup. Is there a configuration tool that he can download to force his computer to ignore that the speaker jack has a cable plugged into it? If so, please leave a comment in the comments section below.

What If I Make Mistakes And Lose Listeners?
Cassius Morris, from The Creatures of The Net podcast, called in to share that he's made some mistakes that have cost him some listeners. He's share that he has learned a lot from these mistakes, yet he notices that he's not getting very much feedback.

In the episode, I share some thoughts on what to focus on in a situation like this and some thoughts on how to handle the feedback situation. Do you have some thoughts to add? If so, please leave a comment in the comments section below.

How Can I Change My RSS Feed From One Website To Another?
Marshall called in to ask if there was an easy way to redirect his feed from one website over to the rss feed of another website. In the episode, I share that there is no “easy” way to do this, however, if you do have full control of that feed there is “a” way to do it. I simply recommend that he check out my iTunes Redirect Video Blog Post. I also shared that if he does not have full control over that old rss feed, then he should listen to episode 200 of Podcast Answer Man where I talk about what to do when your feed is held hostage.

Keep An Eye On Wooden Boat Dan – Dan Mattson
In this episode, I include an interview that I did with Dan Mattson from HookedOnWoodenBoats.com. For anyone who argues that it simply isn't possible to launch a successful business around a passion about something as unique as wooden boats, then I suggest that you follow Dan's story over the next five years and watch how he pulls off the impossible.
