Blubrry Media Hosting allows you to streamline media publishing directly from within your WordPress blog. The service works by linking your hosting service to your blog. Once you link your service to your blog, all you have to do is write your blog post for your episodes, and under the ‘Podcast Episode’ box select the Blubrry folder icon . A “Select Media” screen will appear, allowing you to choose media you’ve previously uploaded to Blubrry hosting as well as upload new media to your Blubrry hosting account.
Linking your Blubrry account to your WordPress site
Go to the PowerPress settings page and select the button “Click here to link Blubrry account”. In the prompt, enter your Blubrry login email address and password then click “Save”. If you are prompted to select a program, select the program you wish to use for this website then click “Save”. Your WordPress site is now linked to your Blubrry podcast hosting account.
Create a Post, Upload and Publish
Publishing episodes is as easy as writing a blog post, just upload your episode between the process of drafting your show notes and publishing your blog post.
Important: Uploaded media to Blubrry hosting is held in a private, unpublished state until you associate your media file to a blog post that is “published”. This feature allows you to keep future episodes unavailable until you go into your blog and publish them. It also provides more control for when files are used against your 30 days media hosting storage space.
