Right now I am showing my frustration of waiting almost 2 hours for a post to come up on Stitcher and this has happened today once again after I posted the BB19 the other day and it never showed and I started to feel discouraged that I am not going very far even though the stats on Stitcher have been better then usual and been getting views from the Stitcher platform but what bothers me the length of it what it takes for the podcast to show up, usually the longest is an hour, an hour and a half which is fine with me but 2 hours or more or for it to not show up. This is not the first time I have had this issue and this time I had to really think about the future of Everything About Reality TV and I know Justin Milner my former Staff member kind of mentioned to me about leaving Stitcher few months back and with great sadness I am announcing in this blog post I am leaving Stitcher after 9 months of being with their amazing platform and it was the toughest decision I have yet to made within the last year well 2nd toughest decision to me letting go my entire team so I can go more on a solo project but sometimes you gotta let go and that is what I did in this instance.
I am not saying I am not happy, I was kind of more frustrated by the situation, however I am humble to be a part of the platform for the length that I have lasted with them. I am not only Humble but proud to be part of the platform and was a great starter for me and my podcast. It does stinks I am leaving when I started to get more traffic on it but I will try and explain it on the next podcast as best as I can. Like the saying goes, one door closes and not being on Stitcher doesn't mean Everything About Reality TV isn't done, because it isn't, the podcast is still on ChrisBOnTheWeb.com, Podcasts.com, TuneIn.com & of course on ITunes. So the podcast is still out there and losing out on a partnership isn't the end of the world, these small setbacks happens and I know I will continue to succeed in the podcast even on my own website, podcasts.com, TuneIn & ITunes. Getting onto ITunes came at the right time to help the podcast out even with the recent departure on one platform, I am on another one. Stitcher was a great start for me and I will never forget this experience and cannot thank Stitcher Staff enough for everything, their love and support throughout the last 9 months. I may be a bit a pain in emails but they know I want nothing but the best for Everything About Reality TV and for it to be successful. In conclusion of tonight's rather late blog post, change sometimes is good and I think this change will be really good for the podcast and if I ever want to return to Stitcher I can in the near future and let em know I would like my feed back I can always request it in the nearby future.
Have a Great Night!
