    Hey Simon. I love the show and your very detailed questions. I’ve been listening to the zany SPP for a while and they put me on to you, as did Joanna Penn. Great work! Why can I only see up to Archive #29 on this page? Am I missing something? I visited (and joined your newsletter) to get some links from the Victoria Danann episode, which i eventually found by clicking on the ‘Street Teams’ Category link. It was a great episode! (As so many are. I’m grateful for the time you are putting in.)

    • SimonRSP

      Hi Robert, Ah! I can be a little slow updating this page here, I really need to make it a weekly thing. If you go to the homepage (click the button top left, or just go to http://rockingselfpublishing.com) all of the latest episodes are posted there – that’s where they go up every Thursday 🙂

      • robertscanlon

        Aha! That was a bit dumb of me! I tell you what happened – I used your ‘first time splash page’ to sign up for the newsletter, then completely bypassed the home page (I think I went straight to the Download the Report page perhaps?). Might be worth an extra bit of text somewhere to repoint first-timers if needed – it may even have been in the welcome email, but of course I haven’t looked at that yet haha!

        Thanks for the fast reply 😉

        • SimonRSP

          Ah! Yes, I can see how that would have happened, I’m sure many have made the same mistake. I was just thinking about having a “Getting started with RSP” page the other day, so that would be the perfect place for it 🙂

  • Oh no! I can no longer see which links I’ve clicked already! Otherwise the new theme looks great, but consider changing the css for the a:visited on this page 🙂

    • SimonRSP

      Wow, thanks for the comment, I kinda forgot about this page, and now I can see that it is really out of date!

      The site redevelopment is a work in process. Mostly done to make everything much faster. I’ll talk to my WordPress guy about sort out the links :).

      • Awesome! Thanks, Simon.
        I really love your interviews. Learning a lot of stuff, and it’s very inspiring too.

        And I was going to write to you, when I was getting closer to the bottom, if the site hadn’t been updated by then, but now that you know it, I’m pretty sure you’ll get around to fix that, before I reach the end of the list 😉

        • SimonRSP

          I sure hope so, it’ll be a couple of days while I get everything sorted on the site front, but it’s on my list 🙂

          • *poking with a stick* 😀

          • SimonRSP

            *Ahem* so, it is possible, that I might have forgotten this request… I can’t work how to do this myself in the theme customization area, but I just sent an email to my WordPress guy to sort it out, so soon it should be working!

          • The new theme makes it easy to just go to the next post, and I¨m at #62 now, so I’ll probably be up to date, before your WP guy gets on top of it, but try to ask him to do make in an automatic thing. It’s quite possible to extract all posts tagged with one tag to a list. I’m sure he’ll be able to figure that out. And then it’ll just grow as you add new podcasts 🙂

            And I’d much prefer you to do new podcasts, than grinding away in WordPress 😉 You’re doing a wonderful job with this site and the interviews. Thank you so much!

          • SimonRSP

            Haha, I know it! I didn’t do anything to the site for a year because I was just focused on making a good show :).

  • AuthZH

    Where are links 95-134?

    • SimonRSP

      Working on an update. Soon.
