As a blogger, it is important to keep up with changes in social media trends and blogging in general. There are some great podcasts available online which can help you stay tuned with updates on content strategy. My favorite social media podcasts vary in scope, but I like to listen to discussions which help me increase my presence online (with tools like Twitter and Facebook). I listen to five different ones on a regular basis. If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can listen to podcasts from almost anywhere! I usually tune in on my way to work or on my morning jog. Start subscribing to even one or two of these, and you may be able to better understand the needs of your readers and how to attract more traffic to your blog. My favorite five podcasts are listed and described below.
