It’s important that if you podcast on a regular basis to do some preplanning work and map out the topics that you want to discuss over the course of your podcast. This really helps you in terms of knowing what’s coming so that you don’t have to do so much work on the fly. It also helps for your listeners because they have some expectation and anticipation of what’s ahead.
I like to map out a series of subjects I can blog about over the course of the next few weeks or months. It helps keep me organized and energized. There’s nothing worse than sitting down in front of the keyboard with nothing to say. Do yourself a favor and get organized first. For example, here’s a quick mindmap I just put together that I’m going to use over the next 10 blog posts on mobile advertising. It took me about 5 minutes to create this in MindNode and now I have a plan.
