Introducing the y-intercept podcast

I decided to restart this blog.

As part of the relaunch, I wanted to include a multimedia feature. After researching Youtube I decided to go with a podcast.

I chose to go with the paid option at Podbean charges $9 a month for "unlimited service." This is actually a fair price. This is the price I would have to pay to self-host a podcast.

My first podcast was about the decision to launch a podcast and why I decided to go with a paid hosted option rather than a free option on a social media.

The reason I did this is because I believe that content creators should created their content as a paid business.

So, I paid a hundred and eight dollars to host the account for a year. To justify renewing the account next year, my podcast needs to generate at least $250.00 in the next twelve months.

Unfortunately, the only way to fund things on the web is with advertising. I sell advertising on at a rate of $25 for 100,000 impressions. $.25 per 1000 ads is based on what I get from Adsense and Affiliate Marketing for the same slot. My hope is to sell ten ad slots which would raise the $250.00 I need for my hosting fees. (note, generating a million page views is quite difficult.

Without further ado, here is the first podcast. I hope to improve the quality of the production.
