Parting Ways With Webmaster Radio

After a conference call today with the owners of webmaster radio I decided it was time to part ways. I have had a great time doing the show for the last 2 years as tried to do the best job I could but lately its been a real challenge finding the time.

Really for me to do the show right I need to hire someone to do research and manage the guests. I have a pretty big back log of of great contacts that I want to bring on to the show but just never find the time to reach out or keep in touch with them. Also I used to write all the recaps of the show myself but I have not had time to do that lately.

I might do something eventually…. We will see what the future holds.

I would like to thank Webmaster Radio for the opportunity and wish them well in the future.

    Well time is money. I really wanted to call in and speak with you, but you are right running a radio show is a full time job. I commend you for sticking it out.

    Just do the best for yourself and also for your family. If doing something started to be a big wall on your way you have to thing what to do for your next move.

    That’s too bad…can’t say I’m surprised though. The better shows on WMR are inconsistent to say the least. I guess that’s the problem with trying to get really successful people to commit to a radio show when they’re not getting paid.

    I think you’d be better off on your own anyways…you could probably really clean up with just interviewing friends in the industry, talking shop, and then having radio ads from your blog sponsors.

    Shoe. My company would love to provide you with whatever you need to do the show and compensate you. Email me please.

    Well you put webmasterradio on the map. I am sure the are great full for all the awesome shows you did.

    That does suck, but you gotta priortize. The only other show I listen to on WMR is the Daily Searchacast. I hear Matt Cutts will be on it Thursday.

    Why don’t you do a podcast for yourself? You can try to do it weekly, but you can do it anytime that week so you don’t have to schedule yourself around it and you don’t have to worry about making it a certian length.

    I think it would make the “show” much better just to be in this format.

  9. Dave

    Daily Searchcast is ok, but Danny Sullivan random-ness about different software/programs is kind of overdone. He’ll spend 10 minutes talking about things he doesn’t like about MS outlook.

    I would tune into a new show for sure. Hey we all have the archives don’t we?
    The right set up will appear for you… and you will be ready. Keep press’in on

    While there is already speculation in the comments about the effect this will have on WMR, do you see this as having any effect on you, your site, etc (well, aside from having more time to devote to other ventures)…for example, do you think you will get less traffic or fewer new visitors?

    Your radio show was great. Hopefully, you find another way to get that information out. Maybe a few more videos?

  13. Mike

    Sad to see you go. You definitely had the best show on there. Nothing else comes close. I can understand though as even though it is only a half hour show I am sure you need to do a lot of prep work. Hopefully a company will sponsor you to make it worth your time.

    I can understand why you need to make this decision. I can imagine how busy you are with everything, plus you have a family that’s growing, so you’ll need more of your time for that.

    I only just discovered webmasterradio.fm and was finding all the shows, especially yours really interesting. It is sad that you are discontinuing this however at least we still have this awesome blog :D Lucky for me I have only listened to two episodes of yours (now I have 2 years of archives to catch up on)

    Hopefully you’ll have time to throw more posts up here. I loved the idea of webmaster radio but an hour is more than my attention span usually.

  18. Shoe Fan

    Aw, man! Even though I’m a little behind on my listening, I really loved those shows–especially the early ones like in 2006 (when your sister was your co-host). Really funny shit and highly educational too. I hope you’ll do more podcasts or something in the future. Half comedy and half make money online education.

  19. Sad Shoemoney Fan

    Aw Daddy! No more “bringin’ on the bling” or “show me da money”. Boo hoo. I’ll miss those weirdass commercials too. It is truly a sad day on the internet. Who knows how many hearts you’ve touched over the years?

    they have an archive but his net income show you have to pay a fee to get all the parts

  21. Wes

    You had the best show going on Webmaster Radio. What if you launched your own show and queued up some advertisers? I’m sure it could bring in some great income.

    I would like to thank you for everything you have done and shared on the show and your blog. It has inspired me to bring my business to new levels that I would have never dreamed. Thanks so much!

    They’ll be poorer off without your show. At the end of the day one human being can only do so much and it is obvious that some time management load shedding was required. If this means more blog posts I’m happy for the change.
