Blogtalkradio has a large presence on the Internet with an Alexa rating of 3,174 in the world and 784 in the US. Maybe you've heard of the site, or have listened to some radio shows there. I found Blogtalkradio a few years ago listening to OmegamanRadio. I generally listen to Voice of Evangelism, Omegamanradio, and The Hagmann and Hagmann Report from Blogtalkradio these days. I have been encouraged and feed spiritually very much so by these ministries, especially Voice of Evangelism with David Lankford.
As for myself I started broadcasting my own show July 2, 2012. As of now I have 13 episodes in all on my show called Lowdown. I have only a free account, so my broadcasts are 30 minutes long. That is the longest I could likely go anyway, so it works out just about right. I have been sporadic in my broadcasting, mostly doing it in spurts here and there these last couple years. The last show I've done is last Monday May 12th.

My review of the site has to note that the site itself takes a lot of effort for my computer to navigate and load. Also, the ads have gotten more invasive and now run before the shows when playing them from my page. I'm sure this is only on the free accounts, so I feel pressured to pay. That's not likely going to happen anytime soon if ever. I just like to have a weekly show for a half an hour. Although the ads are invasive, free is still a good deal.
The Lowdown show talks about Jesus centered subjects and about the efforts I'm undertaking on-line trying to become a successful on-line blogger and writer. The show will not have hype or gimmicks, and if I ever do put music on, it'll be Carroll Roberson most likely or myself. Mostly though if you listen to my shows you'll hear encouragement and information that may be helpful in your walk with the Lord Jesus Christ and as a writer on-line.

As of now after 13 episodes, I've gained 135 listens and have one follower besides myself. I would have two, but I haven't gotten my wife to sign up for Blogtalk yet. This is a good start though, as before this last show I had no social sites and hardly any presence on-line at all. So, now with a growing platform the show should gain some ground and some listens. I will make sure that what I'm broadcasting is as quality as I can muster with the resources and knowledge I have.
I will be broadcasting this coming Monday at 8pm Pacific time. The show topic will be Don't GiveUp, There's A Way With Jesus. If you are so inclined to listen and join me, then there is a Blogtalkradio button at the top of both of my blogs as well as a Blogtalkradio widget to my shows on the bottom of my blogs. God bless.
Here my last show on May 12th:
