As I noted in my previous post on PodCasts, Apple was planning to add PodCast support into the iTunes Music Store. Well that day has arrived! And you can now submit your own PodCasts to the Apple iTunes Music Store, where others can find them for play on iTunes or their iPod.
Here is the PodCast section of the Apple iTunes Music Store. And in the middle of the page you will see a graphic “Publish a Podcast” to click on to add your own PodCast feed.
You then just click on the link, submit your feed and… if Apple okays it, your feed will be on the Apple iTunes Music Store and available for iTunes users everywhere!!! Click here to submit your PodCast feed to the iTunes Store now. (for those who want more tech details, here is a PDF file with technical RSS 2.0 specifications from Apple).
I would strongly encourage everyone who has a PodCast/BlawgCast to submit it to the Apple Music store, as this will likely become a major distribution means for PodCasts.
Here are some related links to the Apple Music Store Pod Cast Announcement
- Apple Press Release on PodCasting and the iTunes Music Store
- MacRummors.com – which aggregates the higher quality rumors and confirmed Apple news
- MacSurfer – has all of the headlines from the various Apple news and rumor sites
- CNET on iTunes Music Store PodCasting (and color iPods)
And of course Mac users should join the MacLawyers Yahoo! Group and visit their Web site. And for those who need a break from finding their law firm 360 degree view from space – all of the standard sized iPods now have color screens, so listen in color 🙂
