Damien Boath1,397This week we revisit an oldie but a goodie: USA Vs Aussie slang! Way back in Episode 11 we played a game to guess what the slang terms meant and we've decided to have another round of it. We're also going to look at why we shorten words (diminutive) and how some "short" words are just as long as the word we are trying to shorten. To help us get our head around it we have @101833715717140625047 along for the ride to explain it for us and to see how well she can guess some of my Australianisms...... All this and more on The Newbie Writers' Podcast!The Newbie Writers' Podcast #132 - Diminutive Slang With Grammar Girl!2014-05-10 01:00:002  
ePublish Unum - Education for Authors154,497Welcome to the Books & Beer Hangout! This is a weekly video chat on topic related to something in or around the world of digital publishing … and we drink beer! It isn't enough to publish one book and let it sit around gathering dust. Many popular indie authors will tell you that doing something new generates buzz that impacts all of their older work to date. So how do you keep people talking and engaged in this constantly changing online world? +Mignon Fogarty, author of the enormously popular _Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips_ books and podcast join us to discuss the new things she's doing to keep her readers engaged, including some she was seriously advised to avoid. Join us for some solid tips on how to make yourself an indie author in more than just name. We’ll chat with our guest for 15 minutes and then up the show to everyone in our Google+ Circles in the "Hangover". You can ask your questions directly, and by all means bring your own beer! All you need is a webcam, a microphone, and speakers (or a headset). Follow us on Google+ at https://plus.google.com/u/0/105236277208554710444/posts and go to our page during this time to watch or join in!

So, podcasting on YouTube. I've looked through old posts, but haven't found a comprehensive thread with a lot of people weighing on on whether it's worth the time. Do you put your audio podcasts on YouTube? If so, what kind of visuals do you add? Do you feel like it's worth your time? Have you done it and then given up for some reason? What are the best practices? Thanks!

I hate it when I run out of new podcasts to listen to on the weekend, but this weekend, you don't have to because I have a new show you can try: Open Room Media. In episode one, we tell the story of a woman who started a magazine in 2009--with her life savings--when the economy was in the tank and everyone said print was dead. We've been getting great feedback! Check it out!
