04/30/2007 More Reviews that Glow
Here is another great instructional FeedForAll review:

Once the MP3 file is ready, you will need to create or edit your RSS feed. Although you can create RSS feeds by hand (an excellent tutorial can be found at rss-specifications.com) there are several tools to automate this task. The most popular software for creating feeds currently is FeedForAll and can be found at feedforall.com.

04/30/2007 Podcasters are Embracing FeedForAll for iTunes Tags
Another great mention:

I have got an excellent tool to help you both manage and promote your podcast called FeedForAll. With FeedForAll you can create, edit and publish RSS feeds. They’ve got both PC and Mac versions and it will even create RSS feeds that are compatible with iTunes. Now, this is software that you actually buy. You download it and you can try a demo for like 30 days I think.

04/23/2007 RSSFilter
A new PHP script has been added to the RSS Scripts Direcory. The new script RSSFilter allows users to filter the contents of an RSS feed the filtered contents are outputted to a new feed. RSSFilter can be used in conjunction with RSSmesh to filter and merge multiple RSS feeds as well.

04/23/2007 Small Business Computing and RSS
Small Business Computing put together a great review on how to use FeedForAll.

FeedforAll is a wizard-driven solution can walk you through creating a standard RSS feed, a standard podcast, or an iTunes podcast.

The most technical information you will need to get started: your Web site server address and FTP server type. If you have your own in-house server hosting your Web site, you can get that information easily from your Web software (or better, from your IT guy). But more than likely, you are using an outside service provider to host your site, so you’ll need to get that info from them.

Before you panic, or spend time on hold waiting for tech support, drill down into the Web-hosting details area in your account-management screen, and you should be able to find the server address assigned to your site. Just be aware that some low-cost hosting subscriptions don’t provide FTP support (which you need to upload your feed), so you may need to upgrade your hosting account.

In FeedforAll, the first step in the RSS creation wizard is to give your feed a title. If there is (or will be) a Web page that will also contain the information provided in the RSS feed, use the same name. Then, you’ll be asked to fill in a description. This is a short summary that aptly describes the contents of the feed. You’ll also enter the link to the feed; that is, the Web page URL from which the RSS feed originates.

04/17/2007 Where to Locate Podsafe Music
Nothing really polishes a podcast more than background music or theme music. In the music world, these music segments are referred to as intros and extros. While many enjoy streaming Internet Audio and recording songs they like over the Internet, these songs cannot legally be used in a podcast.

PodSafe Music
Podsafe music refers to music specifically for podcasters. The music is licensed in such a way that podcasters can purchase a license to include the music in a podcast without incurring additional fees or expenses. In order to use traditional music that is heard on the radio in a podcast, podcasters may have to pay royalties for each time the song is played. Some music files licensed under public domain or creative commons are exempt from royalties and these songs are available for use in a podcast, but generally when searching for music to include in a podcast it is probably best to stick with music that is specifically designated as "podsafe".

03/20/2007 Monetizing Podcasts
Podcasts started out as fun ways for ambitious garage DJs, independent musicians and talk show hosts, who had not ventured into radio broadcasting as a way to show their stuff and make a name for themselves. What started as a hobby for many, has turned into a lucrative profession for some.

Not surprisingly, podcasters, just like radio stations, have looked for ways to profit from their on-air dialogue.
