Just One More Book! is one year old today

Sunday, July 15, 2007.

Just One More Book recording setupJust One More Book was launched one year ago today with the release of our first podcast episode; a review of the children’s picture book, Bill In A China Shop. It was a different world for JOMB. Our audio quality was terrible and we hadn’t found our rhythm. We watched our statistics and hoped for more than thirty listeners per show.

As the year progressed, we invested in some new equipment, changed our review style, interviewed a lot of amazing people, gave away several autographed books, corresponded with people who are equally passionate about great children’s books and watched our listener base grow to an average of 6,000 downloads a week. Later this week we will release our 200th episode.

Thank you for being a part of the Just One More Book community and for helping to make this an incredibly fun first year!

Don’t forget that we will be giving away an autographed copy of Lois Ehlert’s Eating the Alphabet during the first week of September. To qualify, send a review of one of your favourite children’s book (five-minutes or less) as an MP3 file (or text review) in email to justonemorebook@gmail.com, phone it in to our listener feedback line (+1-206-350-6487) or leave a two-minute MyChingo by August 31, 2007.

Hi,

What a great podcast series. So great that you record it out in public. That’s really a great idea. Congratulations on being a year old.

I know my blog isn’t suited for review on your site, but I thought you might
enjoy it.

It’s fairly new. I’ve challenged myself to writing 50 short children’s stories in a year. I’m about half way there. I’ve got till February.

Thanks again for your podcast reviews.
