ProBlogger Darren Rowse explains how to produce them … Though videocasting is hot, audiocasting is not. Alex Iskold poses the thoughtful question, will podcasting survive? … Here’s an interesting article by Andy Merrett from the Blog Herald reporting that 80% of Americans know what a blog is, and 50% of us visit blogs regularly. I was surprised at how high those percentages are, since blogs have only gone “mainstream” in the last couple years.

Thank you, Laura Milligan at Bootstrapper for pulling together 100 Resources for the Black Entrepreneur. Laura’s resources cover anything you’ll need for sales, marketing, inspiration, and managing your business … And finally, thanks to Lillie Ammann for compiling her list of blogs by and for writers. I’m proud to be on this list, because I’ve checked out all Lillie’s other choices, and I’m in some mighty fine company.
