At Complete Developer Podcast we use several HTML templates for our emails and show notes. I developed these templates so whomever is writing the show notes or emails will be able to maintain the same format.
The Wednesday and Friday emails have inline CSS since they are for MailChimp. The CSS for the Show Notes is shown below the HTML templates.
Each week we send out the outline for the upcoming episode to our subscribers. The following is the HTML template used by Complete Developer Podcast for this email.
Our process of writing show notes has evolved as we’ve grown as podcast hosts and learned to do a better job. I have to give a shout out to The Podcast Dude as many of the improvements I’ve made to our process and writing have come from his show and The Seanwes Podcast.
On Fridays our subscribers receive an email with more detailed notes developed from the published show notes and a preview of any blog posts coming from the material. We also include extra links that were not used in the show but are secondary references. This is the HTML template I developed for writing these emails.
Our WordPress site has a lot of custom css. The below code is the CSS I developed specifically for show notes and blog posts on the website.
