Adventures in podcasting: got my first haters

Before I started the podcast, I was almost paralyzed by the fear that I’d get haters tearing apart my work.
Then I get comments like this on one of my ads and I feel my old troll self coming back out of her cave and enjoying interactions like this a tiny bit too much.

Will angry old dudes be able to walk away without trying to “win”? Stay tuned to find out, when we return with “As the Podcast Grows”.
Good news is I’m setting my advertising trolls rules of engagement early. I’ll be nice to them/give them the benefit of the doubt precisely once. After that they get their bullshit deleted and blocked.
I had some bozo earlier try to toss a link to his podcast onto my paid ad, with a snide remark about “if you want to ‘stumble on’ a podcast that actually helps people”. I left him a nice note but did call him on that comment. He did that “I’m not responsible for your interpretation” BS so I decided I’m not responsible for advertising his fucking podcast and deleted the whole thread 😂

I don’t particularly care if FB frowns on deleting comments. My house, my rules! 😁


If you’re an aspiring freelancer who’s working up the courage to leave the day job… good news! I’m sharing all the things I WISH I’d known before making the leap so that hopefully your journey goes a little more smoothly than mine.
