    Since podcasting is booming. A copy of a Copyblogger newsletter:

    - 17% of Americans have listened to a podcast in the last month (that’s 36 million people just in the U.S.A.) — a number that keeps growing.

    - 10% of Americans have listened to a podcast in the last week — and of this group, the average person listens to six podcast episodes per week.

    - Podcast consumers in the U.S. are much more affluent, educated, and likely to engage with brands via social media than the general population.

      You have the option to embed a YouTube video that is audio with a still image or you can link to an MP3 file. You could also link to a site like SoundCloud.

        Thanks for the options, Matthew. I didn't realize that SoundCloud was an option as well. I'll keep it in mind.

    I think it's a good suggestion - it all depends on whether this platform has the right technical specification to support audio files (sorry, I am not technical!).

    The only downside of producing podcasts is the time investment: editing a podcast takes several hours, while writing an article tends to take less time.

    Shall we ask Kim Kardashian to send a tweet to HubPages' CEO? She managed to get a reply from twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey with her suggestion of adding an editing feature to sent tweets smile

      That might be a good idea, Paola! If you ask Kim Kardashian, I'll ask Queen Maxima smile
