blogcastingHow To Podcast Using Just Blogger.com
Create a new blog or use an existing one. Use this code in your blog's Template, this should be the ONLY code in the Template, if there is anything else things might go bad for you on some podcasting apps. To reiterate, clear EVERYTHING ELSE out of your template and place this in there. This will turn the output of your blog into a straight up podcast ready bit of RSS. If you love how your blog looks now you may want to start a new blog just for the podcast, blogger.com being the never ending supply of blogspaces.
<rss version="2.0" dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">
<blogitemurl><enclosure url="<$BlogItemUrl$>" length="666"
1) In the Settings/Publishing section give the blog filename a .xml extension. For example nameofyourpodcast.xml When you need to give people or podcasting apps the url for the podcast feed you give them http://nameofyourblog.blogspot.com/nameofyourpodcast.xml
2) On the Settings/Site Feed sectoin ensure "Publish Site Feed" is set to OFF. You heard right, we do not want this to go thru the Feed process becuase the code we put in the Template is doing that already.
3)In the Settings/Formatting section of your blogs setup make sure the TITLE and LINK options are turned on.
Now you are ready to start making some podcasting magic. When you make a new blog entry...
The header will include some values that come right out of your blogs Basic settings.

Another feedback mentioned that the lastBuildDate tag is empty. Well yes it is. Lets see what blogger templare variable we can stuff in there.
