Harriette Cole: Podcaster annoyed by “offer”

DEAR HARRIETTE: A blog contacted me per an event to have my podcast hosted on a website. we was meddlesome during first, though afterwards was told that we would have to compensate for this “web space.” we asked how most web trade a blog gets, and a answer was about a entertain of my listeners. The blog should be profitable ME for this opportunity. How do we spin it down? Should we discuss how most a blog sole me short? — Bigger Than You, Dallas

DEAR BIGGER THAN YOU: Without carrying an attitude, we should have a impersonal review with this company. Let your hit know that we might be meddlesome in housing your podcast on a site — non-exclusively — though that we opposite with a artistic event for them. Point out your web traffic, observant that it is bigger than a blog’s. Suggest that we put your podcast on a site, and that a dual of we separate whatever increase come from promotion or other promotions. Insist that we are bringing combined value to a blog. As such, we consider it is usually satisfactory that we both advantage from a common experience.

If a blog stays uninterested, do not partner with it. You might wish to demeanour for other opportunities to place your podcast, possibly as a partnership or with a association that has significantly some-more trade than yours. If we are going to pay, a investment needs to be value it. Otherwise, pass.

DEAR HARRIETTE: we applaud Hanukkah in a Christmas-dominated city. Much to my children’s dismay, we respond to people who contend “Happy holidays” or “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Hanukkah!” we feel like it is so common to concentration usually on Christmas, and my holiday should get some recognition, too. My children contend we seem like a Grinch and should be happy when people wish blessings to me, regardless of eremite connotations. Who is right here?

I don’t consider I’m doing anything wrong by revelation people what holiday we celebrate. — Merry Menorahs, Queens, New York

DEAR MERRY MENORAHS: Your emanate is one that people share opposite religions. we know some Christians who do not wish to contend a general “Happy holidays” since they wish to respect Christmas specifically. You have each right to select to applaud your possess holiday tradition. You can do that but denying others their holiday joy. One approach is to repeat their greeting, acknowledging where their devotion lies, followed by “Happy Hanukkah!”
