Fashionability: Changes Are Afoot

Greetings Everyone!

Welcome back to Fashionability, there are going to be some changes ahead over the next few months.

Fashionability is moving to a brand new home! After such an amazing response on audioboom we thought it was about high time we expand on Fashionability and embark on a new stage of our adventure.

The new domains have already been secured, the blog content is being relocated, and the audio media will soon be transferred over to our own RSS feed. While we have enjoyed using the AudioBoom platform, and appreciate all they have done to provide us with a simple way to reach our audience, they have also made some changes to their platform and terms of service that are in conflict with our goals. Please watch this space for more announcements as to our timetable, where you can find the new home of the podcast, and how you can listen without missing an episode. At some point, we will be requesting that you unsubscribe from the AudioBoom channel feed, and resubscribe to our new feed. We may still post to AudioBoom our monthly updates and other information, if we can do this without too much complication. But, we will keep you posted on our progress and we cannot wait to show you what we will be doing.

We are also working on getting a team of transcribers to help us to make the episodes into transcriptions for our hard of hearing listeners, so if you are or your know anyone who might be interested please contact either myself or Laura on fashionabilitychannel@gmail.com.

But, for now you can still follow us via the links below…
