Free Hosting for Online Radio

I have thought about making my own radio station on the internet for awhile now, but I have been kind of lazy about actually doing it. But no more, I need to get started and actually make sure this happens, because it is something I would really like to do. I think that it would be a great opportunity for me to be creative, and I don’t express my creativity often enough. I have been checking out Shoutcast hosting and I think that I am going to make my radio station on Shoutcast, because that seems like a pretty good service, and besides, there are thousands of other radio stations here. So that means that there is a definite user base for this site and there is a good chance that it will be heard by some people.

Of course, I am not going to just make the radio station and hope someone stumbles onto it. Instead, I am going to try to spread the word myself a bit, and send links to it to some of my friends. I am not going to go overboard promoting it, because I do not want to use up too much of my time promoting it. I would like to spend a lot more time on the actual development of the radio station, as opposed to spending so much time promoting it.

But at the same time, I need to find a healthy balance and promote it some, at least in the beginning, to make sure people know about it. After all, it would make me pretty bummed out if I put all this time and effort into making a radio station and did not have anybody listen to it. I don’t think that will happen, but I need to make sure it doesn’t.
