How to Rate and Review the Aussie Bloggers Podcast in iTunes
If you love our show and haven’t already subscribed to it via iTunes, now’s the perfect opportunity to begin. And it’s so easy!!
The beauty of using iTunes (and the Podcast app for iOS) is that when you subscribe, you’ll get a brand new Aussie Bloggers Podcast episode every Friday. You will be able to store it and listen to it over the weekend, or the following week at a time that suits you. It’s automatic! No searching, no checking – it will automatically download for when you are ready to listen.
Our podcasts are free, as our big mission is to support Australian Bloggers and help new bloggers with tips and tricks to fast track their own journey into blogging. So by subscribing to us, it also means you are supporting us. And as we strive to bring together a community of bloggers, that means a lot. Not only to us, but also those other bloggers we are aiming to help.
So subscribe and then tell everyone all about us. Share us as a resource on social media, around the table and with your other blogging friends!
Another great way to support us, (in addition to subscribing and sharing) is to write a review on iTunes. These reviews are seen by other people and may help them decide whether or not to download and listen or even subscribe.
If you’ve never left a review on iTunes before, let us help you!

Now to Rate and Review!
Click on the Ratings and Reviews tab which is sitting to the right of the Aussie Bloggers Podcast logo. This will show all of the current ratings and reviews that our fans have so generously left, and provide you with an opportunity to do the same.
Above these reviews you’ll see a series of stars where you can rate the show from 1 to 5 stars. Remember, 5 stars is the highest rating you can give.
Next, click on the Write A Review button. This will bring up a brief pop-up window in which you can type a title and text of your review. If you haven’t already chosen a star rating, do this here.
Write in what you want to say about the show and click on Submit. And that’s it! Apple will review the comment for appropriateness, and then publish it. It’s okay if you don’t see your review immediately, as it can take some time for Apple to review it.
