In December 2019 I accidentally started a thang on Twitter called #PodRevMo, which started out as a personal challenge to write 1 podcast review every day that month. As a Podcaster I wanted to stop complaining that my podcast wasn't getting enough feedback, when I was not giving feedback to the many podcasts Creators that I myself listened to loyally. If I don't give feedback how can I expect others to?!?!
The accidental event picked up steam and 19 other podcast lovers joined in during December for this month long challenge. To keep the #podlove experience going, we've decided to have 1 day every month where we remind ourselves to review a podcast, this is now #PodRevDay and is on the 8th of every month.
It's so simple to participate: just review a podcast somewhere THEN post it on Twitter with #PodRevDay. You can write the review anywhere but I suggest Podchaser because there aren't country or device limitations, so more people can see the review.
In other words:
All it takes to participate in #PodRevDay is 1 podcast review on the 8th but don't let that stop you if you want to write more on that day or any other day. Ultimately, #PodRevDay can be a place for listeners to find new podcasts so the more the merrier. Many others participating in #PodRevDay and I will be retweeting #PodRevDay posts on the 8th to reach the most people on this day.
Some folks have asked how to view the feed without being on Twitter, so I have added a Twitter stream from my Twitter account for now. If anyone knows how to embed a hashtag, I would greatly appreciate the code for this. Stack Overflow searches stated that this was no longer possible, yikes.
I hope to expand to other social media platforms going forward but just moved to even keeping this going at all has been a challenge, lol. No matter if you join us for this or not, please spread the podlove by telling other Podcasters how much you like their shows. Thanks.
