I am just getting started on my first podcast, but I am already excited beyond my own expectations to keep expanding and growing. I aspire for more productions, and to use my own experience to help aspiring podcasters. All of that does involve spending money on advertising to put myself out there, buying and maintaining domains and websites, software licensing, registrations for necessary services, and paying other industry professionals for their time working on my projects. Every little bit helps, and can mean being able to pay for a Facebook or Google ad that might net me another handful of listeners or a prospective client. Your support is everything.
