It appears that iTunes New and Noteworthy is fixed again. Now, maybe it was never broken, but it seemed awfully strange that the mustache show and the Disney origins show never moved from #1 and #2 for several days. But I feel much better now seeing those shows move down the list. And, coincidentally enough, The Overwhelmed Brain podcast is back in New and Noteworthy again! Go figure.

I got interviewed on another podcast recently, and the episode I was in just got released today. Wow, I was kind of boring! I realize I have a lot to work on being a speaker. I don’t know why I was all over the place with some of my answers. I hope it doesn’t bring their show down a notch. Oh well, I realize that I have to put myself out there, be vulnerable, so I can expose what I need to improve in myself. Well, I’m certainly exposed now! ; )

I’m booking quite a few guests this week for my two special shows coming up. It’s a big undertaking, and I barely have enough time as it is for a once a week show, but I’m going to make it work – jump in head first. I’m getting used to using the ScheduleOnce system for my online scheduling (not an affiliate link, I just think they’re cool). And it seems to be working out really well for both me and my guests. I especially like how it updates Google Calendar for me too, since I use that all the time.

This will be an interesting couple of weeks… the last two weeks of work, with next week being the busiest yet. But after Christmas, I go from JOB to TOB (ha ha! My wife came up with that. Clever.). That’s when the real work begins. I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like doing this full time. I have a to-do list a mile long! Should be fun and productive.

Anyway, I am back in the ranks again. Here are the current iTunes New and Noteworthy rankings:

  • All of New and Noteworthy: #30 (#63 yesterday)
  • Health New and Noteworthy: #2 (#8 yesterday)
  • Business New and Noteworthy: #2 (#14 yesterday)
  • Education New and Noteworthy: #2 (#9 yesterday)

Feels good… while it lasts! Wait a moment, 15 seconds are up!
It’s nice to release a new episode. It always seems to lend a hand in the rankings. 2, 2, 2! Love it.

Here are the most recent download stats from libsyn:

  • Dec 3: 424 downloads
  • Dec 4: 489 downloads
  • Dec 5: 300 downloads
  • Dec 6: 271 downloads
  • Dec 7: 286 downloads
  • Dec 8: 586 downloads
  • Dec 9: 694 downloads (day not over yet)

Total downloads to date:  8905 (was 8477 on Dec. 8th)

It’s too bad I can’t stay in New and Noteworthy forever! With this trend, I could potentially reach 1000+ downloads a day in the next week or two. I’m actually looking forward to dropping off. It will be a true test of my persistence, determination, and motivation to make it work.

N & N can put a facade on reality. So many new people are finding the show, and they could all be 1-time listeners. When I drop off though, only people searching for my specific content, or me in particular, will find the show. It will force me to become a more advanced marketer/promoter.

I can only ride this wave for so long before it fizzles out. So soon, I will need to create my own wave.
