058 Your Questions Answered and How to be Productive in This New Year

By Leslie Samuel

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today's episode is an exciting one – At least for me.

Listen to This Episode

In fact, I had so much to say in this episode that I did it in 3 Parts:

Part 1: Answers to your questions

QuestionsAt the beginning of the episode, I respond to 3 questions. . .

The first was called in by John from He asked me how I manage multiple WordPress sites. I run this blog and my Biology blog, and it can be quite complicated trying to manage it all. Fortunately, I've learnt a thing or two about making it work, and I share 3 tips with John.

The second was from an anonymous caller. She wanted to know what I thought about services like Blog Talk Radio and Talkshoe for doing a podcast. I gave her three reasons why I recommend to avoid those services like the plague, lol.

The last was from Rochelle Hanson from Simply Natural Ideas. She also wanted to know about podcasting. She's interested in starting a podcast but wanted to know how to overcome technical hurdles. I give her 3 tips.

Part 2: The Announcements

This year is off to an exciting start, and there are exciting things happening here at Learning With Leslie. These things are so exciting that I'm not even going to mention what they are here in the show notes. You'll have to listen, so that you can hear the excitement in my voice and feel it yourself.

Part 3: How to be Productive in 2012

I've made a decision that my word for 2012 will be “productivity” and I want you to join me in this quest. In order to help you along in that journey, I give some tips to help us all be more productive.

What do I mean by productivity?

Having something to show for the work you put in. If you're working constantly, and not seeing a result, you're doing something wrong.

This is the year where we move beyond being stagnant, and start to make things happen.

In part 3, I talk about what this all means for me, and what it should mean for you.

My Questions for this episode:

  • Are you willing to join me in this quest for productivity?
  • What does productivity mean for you?

  1. LOL! The anonymous question was me. The beep happened and I freaked out, got scared and forget to leave my name and the url of the website I was talking about. I’ve been trying to revive a health blog I started a long time ago –

    Thanks for answering my question. I signed up to be a Learning With Leslie Insider the other day and the podcasting course you have there has answered my questions about podcasting. I was considering Blogtalk Radio because I didn’t understand the technical side of podcasting, but I guess it isn’t as difficult as I thought it was.

    1. @Lovelyn Ohhhhh, that was Youuuuu. Cool beans!

      Well, glad to know that you are enjoying the content. Glad I was able to answer your question, and just glad all around, lol.

      All the best with your podcast 🙂

  2. Are you willing to join me in this quest for productivity?

    Hey, sure I will join you! You are that productive and just an inspiration! Like Lovelyn I already joined you and became a Learning With Leslie Insider.

    What does productivity mean for you?

    I am planning to get my blog online soon – finally. And for me content & link building comes first.

    1. Woohooo! Glad to have you along on this quest for productivity!

      Glad to hear you’re getting the blog up. Just put it up there and lets grow together. 2012, here we come 😀
