Apparently, it’s taken at least a week for the server issues to work out here, or at least they happened between now and last week.
Last week, our friends at Up Close And On Fire With Spitfire And Kickazz, the independently produced podcast we were hosting and distributing, decided to utilize Spreaker to distribute their podcast. We are more than fine with that – because we are looking to utilize the same platform at Spreaker to distribute our own programming ourselves, leaving this server as a place to disseminate news and promote our podcast.
Thanks for understanding. We prematurely debuted the network itself to help out our friends Spitfire And Kickazz, so now during this hopefully short downtime, we will resume pre-production on our own programming. We have a lot of ideas planned for the TGML Podcast Network, and we look forward to implementing them in 2017!
The server company we are contracted with has been having some weird issues this weekend – issues that we shouldn’t be having. The issue is that posts are not showing up automatically once they are made, which is not good for any website.
We are going to continue to monitor this situation throughout the day (which we shouldn’t have to, quite honestly) and let that determine whether we remain with our current hosting company past this week. I am seriously looking at allowing a service like Tumblr handle the text posts for us while having a dedicated podcast host distribute the program episodes if it comes to that.
We’ll keep you posted.
Episode 5 of Up Front And On Fire with Spitfire And Kickazz has been delayed due to technical issues that both the show’s producer and ourselves were aware of when we uploaded the show yesterday afternoon (Friday the 20th… as if that day wasn’t…).
All parties involved are looking into the matter and we hope to get back up to speed soon. Thank you for bearing with us.
The Groove Music Life Podcast Network has been in the planning/embryonic stage for some time. Recently, we were asked by friends of ours where they could find a podcast service for their program. When we mentioned that once could easily host their podcast via their own website, rather than deal with the likes of Podomatic or Mixcloud (nothing against any of those services, by the way), they asked us if we would host their podcast. We had been looking to launch the TGML Podcast Network for sometime, and this opportunity gave us the excuse to do so! Stay tuned!
