I am a new blogger, and working on building my audience. My Blog centers around paranormal investigations. Just for fun, I filmed a commercial for my blog. I am just going to keep plugging away. I need to find out how to do a podcast, so that is what I am researching now. If you have any tips on doing a podcast, that would be great. For everyone viewing the post, check out my commercial. It was done for fun and my phone was my camera!

I have found some errors while accessing my Typepad account. I don't see the same problem with other Typepad blogs. Is it the issue only with me? Can anyone please help resolving this issue.
