Venture Voice – interviews with entrepreneurs

Entertaining Entrepreneurship

Media Devolution or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Blog

Share the word

We’ve come a long way since we first started this podcast nine months ago.

When I used to go to tech conferences and tell people I had just launched a podcast, the response was usually something along the lines of “Podcast, very cool. How long have you been blogging?”

After hearing I’d never had a blog and still don’t (unless you count the text portion of our podcast a blog, which I don’t unless it will get us more press), I’d usually get a strange stare. “No blog, are you really Web 2.0? Isn’t a blog a prerequisite for a podcast anyhow?”

I didn’t care though. In my mind podcasting was always a cooler – or at least richer – form of media than a blog anyhow.

So why would we stoop to launching a blog on Venture Voice? Simply because entrepreneurs are doing too many cool things! We want to tell you about them pronto.

Past guests have had some major accomplishments since they’ve appeared on our show. We’ve also noticed a lot of trends in the startup economy that we’d like to point out quickly to our audience. However, we adhere to a very strict format and only release podcast shows when we’ve got an in-depth interview or a story to share.

I also like to write.

So now we’ve got a blog component to keep you up-to-date on all things entrepreneurship, particularly as they relate to what’s been said on our podcast. As always, we’ll do our best to keep our opinions to ourselves in favor of illuminating the world of new ventures and provoking discussion.

A couple of housekeeping matters: We’ve relegated the blog to a separate portion of our website, but we’re combining the RSS feed. You can now find all of the events we’re involved with or attending on our new events page. We’ve also added a navigation bar that makes it easy to browse our podcast library, read what the press has to say about us or contact us.

Enjoy the blog.
