    What a wonderful, fun podcast! And now that I know that catrose is merely an outrageously precocious 14-year-old, that’s the last time I let HER push me around!!

  2. Benjamin Gittins says:

    Hey. Each person should be evaluate based on the merit of what they say, not based on their age of the person saying it!!! :-) No merely about it, Catrose has horse-power up-stairs and a good heart!!

    Today I got round to listen to this most interesting Podcast. Having been a small part of the Librivoc community for almost 5 years now I hope that Librivox will continue to grow and give a lot of satisfaction both to readers and listeners – and all who take part, for many, many years to come.

  4. Charlotte Duckett says:

    Aww! Thanks you guys! (Sorry, I just don’t the guy who’s probably being paid by Apple to advertise here get the last word on this topic!) :-D Love you all- Cat

  5. What you published was actually very reasonable.

    However, what about this? what if you added a little information?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a post title to possibly get a person’s attention?
    I mean LibriVox » Blog Archive » LibriVox Community Podcast #131 is kinda boring.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article titles to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    Thank you for your approval of the information we publish in our blog, and for your suggestion, Mihran. However, we get as much attention as we want from our blog titles. Those in the community know what they’re getting when they see “LibriVox Community Podcast #131.” :)
