The Holidays are Here! Here’s How to Prepare



The holiday season is in full swing and that means days off from work, and yes that includes the folks at Apple and iTunes. While you might be hoping to use some of your days off to get your podcast up and running or work on some changes, keep in mind there might be a delay on their end.

Take a look at their schedule (provided by iTunes) and plan accordingly:

And since we’re on the topic, please keep in mind that while Blubrry is a large podcasting community, there are only 12 of us that work for Blubrry. We’ll be looking at emails and checking in as often as possible, but we hope you will be patient if there are delays in response. Check out our schedule below:

Half days – cannot guarantee we will get back to you that day

Friday, Dec. 23

Friday, Dec. 30

Out of office days – probably won’t hear back on these days

Monday, Dec. 26

Tuesday, Jan. 2

People love to listen to multiple episodes during the holidays since they’ve got some extra time around the house or on a long drive. From Christmas to the middle of January is the No. 1 on-boarding time for new listeners as well, so the end of December is not the time to put your show on break. Prepare now so you don’t have to worry about trying posting a show right before your day off. Enjoy the holiday season and happy podcasting!
