Is Your Blog or Podcast Ready for Mainstream America?

USA Today is about to get behind blogs/podcasts in a big way. Blogger & Podcaster magazine will be launching a guide (think TV Guide for blogs and podcasts) in partnership with USA Today which generates 10,400,000 unique visitors at In addition, the Blogger & Podcaster Guide will be published in the print version of USA Today, reaching an additional 5,200,000 readers.

I believe this is an awesome opportunity to get your blog/podcast out to mainstream America. In any case, you can try it out free for a month and let your results be the judge of value.
