My First Podcast Interview and Other News

A couple of days ago I was interviewed by Trent Dyrsmid for his Podcast.  This was my very first Podcast interview, and I think it went pretty well!  Trent and I are both passionate about building niche websites, so we dove right in and covered lots of in depth details that I’m sure many of you will be interested in hearing.  I basically cover how to built niche websites from start to finish.

So, if you are interested in checking out my interview on Trent’s podcast – you can check it out right here!

Also, if anyone out there is doing a podcast or is looking for a guest post or something, I am open to doing more!  I enjoyed the podcast and I figure it doesn’t hurt to get my name out there a little bit.  Of course, my time is limited and I can’t do everything, but I’m more than happy to discuss options with anyone interested.

My Races

In other news, I recently finished a 50-mile relay race called Rainier to Ruston.  In fact, it was last Saturday – June 4th.  With a team of six, we covered 50 miles total (I ran about 10.5 miles total I think).  Each of us ran 2 legs of the race.  It was a blast!  The race went from the base of Mt. Rainier to a town called Ruston on the Puget Sound in Washington.  Anyway, I was fortunate enough to get to run the 2nd leg of the race which ended up being a secluded trail through the woods.  It was beautiful!  However, it was EXTREMELY wet and muddy!  I had to run through several mud holes and streams of water.  So, I ended up spending more time worrying about dodging mud and water puddles and creeks than I did about running a great pace (but so did everyone else on that trail).  Anyway, out team ended up in 4th place (out of 44 I think) in the 6 person relay groups.  Here are a couple of pictures:

Getting ready to tag the next runner.  Just came out of the trail:

Anyway, my next running event is the Seattle Rock ‘n Roll Marathon on June 25th!  Anyone else in the Seattle area want to join me?!  I am running it with a few other friends and family – some doing the full and some doing the half marathon.  This will be my second full marathon and I am hoping my last (if I can keep myself from signing up for anymore).  The long hours of training are just not enjoyable anymore! Although I am hoping to stay in shape so I can do some Triathlons this summer as well.  I guess we’ll see what happens.  I think mixing up the training with other sports besides running will help me stay more excited about working out.

That’s about it for today.  I just wanted to let you know of the podcast interview and share a bit about my latest run. Later!

    Well done Hos! You’re a natural. It’s easy to see that you’ve internalized all of this niche website info. It’s like talking about the weather for you. I’m sure people will be hitting you up for more webcasts.

      Thanks Shooter!

    How about an ultra-marathon next?

    • Spencer


      Nope, not for me! My brother has done several ultras, but I’m not interested 🙂

    Left a message on Trent’s site. Good job the podcast definitely converted since I came to read your Adsense article. The thing you omitted to mention in the interview was your assumption around click-through rates. One question for you: when do you put Adsense on your site – day 1 or do you wait for traffic to build to >50 uniques a day since early amounts will be very low.


    • Spencer


      Norm – thanks for making it over to my site! I have both put adsense on my sites right away and have waited a few weeks, and it doesn’t matter either way. I typically wait a couple of weeks right now simply because of the process I follow and by the time I get around to adding adsense, its just been a couple of weeks. But either way is fine.

    I know that when I was body building I incorporated a lot of running as well. And your absolutely right! Doing other activities makes training a breeze. For me it was motocross. Dating was also a bit of a sport back then as well. Either way, dangle that carrot in front of you and training sessions wont be as much of a drag 🙂
