The Overwhelmed Brain Podcast Journey – Post 29

Today is December 29th, 2013, 41 days after the launch of my podcast.

Whew, the 5-Day Holiday Blues Special is now done, and adding those shows definitely brought the download numbers up. In fact, earlier today, I was once again #1 in three categories in iTunes, however, I have since fallen.

So let’s get right to it…

The current iTunes New and Noteworthy rankings:

  • All of New and Noteworthy: #35 (#25 yesterday)
  • Health New and Noteworthy: #3 (#1 yesterday)
  • Business New and Noteworthy: #8 (#1 yesterday)
  • Education New and Noteworthy: #4 (#1 yesterday)

Here are the latest download numbers from libsyn:

  • Dec 23: 1156 downloads (1 day after new release)
  • Dec 24: 1137 downloads (2 days after new release)
  • Dec 25: 1334 downloads (New release today)
  • Dec 26: 1759 downloads (New release today)
  • Dec 27: 1946 downloads (New release today)
  • Dec 28: 1768 downloads (New release today)
  • Dec 29: 1480 downloads (New release today)

Total downloads to date:  30,451  (was 28,868 two days ago)

Another milestone, 30,000 downloads! My friend Trevor was right – I did reach 30,000 downloads within 12 days (Dec 21st, I predicted in 12 days I’d likely hit 30k). Alright, happy that I’m wrong.

Not much else to report today. The first two holiday blues specials brought in about 1000+ each, the third brought in just under a 1000 and the other two are about 750 and 850. So, they’ll probably climb a bit more. We’ll see what they end up at, and if they continue bringing in any download numbers after the holidays are over.

Otherwise, taking some much needed time off this week. I’ll check in a couple or more times here though.

Stay tuned…

    Congrats on 30k! Wow! Though you fell in the new and noteworthy rankings, you haven’t fallen far. Plus, I suspect the rankings would be different if you checked an hour earlier or later. I just looked and see that you’re #27, #1, #1, and #1 at 10:48am. Very fluid it seems.

    Though there are some download/subscriber benefits to the holidays, I suspect some people aren’t downloading as much too. I think your choice to produce extra content during the holidays was quite smart. Enjoy the lighter schedule this week!

    • Thank you! 30K was so yesterday… got some new numbers I’ll be posting tonight! ha ha! I’m so over worrying about where I rank in iTunes N & N, as it seems to fluctuate by so much. It’s a tease! Though, when I’m #1 in 3 categories? That always gets my attention.

      My DL numbers went up over the holidays. And likely, so did my subscriber count. Pretty cool! I’ll be posting the numbers for the holiday shows tonight too.

      Thanks again!
