Scheduling Things In: Forgetting about Podcasts

So, I have only been a panel member on one of the five episodes of WordPress Weekly, a podcast being run by Jeffro of Jeffro2pt0. I have had every intention of being on more of them, but what ends up happening is on Friday night, I am busy doing other things, wrapping up my week, and I totally forget about calling in to the podcast.

The amusing part is that I usually remember about two hours too late.

This really brings home the issue I have with scheduling. From week to week my roles, responsibilities and hours change. I am pretty much always tied to a computer though. You would think that I would have an application set up to remind me of such upcoming events, but even if I did, I don’t think I am diligent or organized to constantly keep it up to date.

What’s a blogger like me to do? Maybe I should just get Jeffro to change the recording time to suit my needs? (Joking of course) What do you think?

Oh, and check out Episode 3 if you want to hear me giving out my opinion on a variety of WordPress related things.

    Hey David. First off, your appearance on Episode 3 has made it the most popular/downloaded show thus far. People have told me that they really enjoyed hearing you on the show and you were good with keeping the conversation flowing.

    I don’t schedule anything myself and because of my hours at work, I miss a lot of things I’d like to participate in. Thats why I’ve requested to go back to the day shift instead of the night shift so I can participate in more shows and blog during the hours when everyone else blogs.

    No biggy though for not calling into the show. You have an open invitation to join us if you can remember 2 hours prior and not after the show 🙂

    Open iCal, set up a reminder to send you an email that morning (as a refresher) and then a message warning an hour before and one fifteen minutes beforehand.

    iCal saved my life.
