I started this blog nearly a year ago with the intent of getting things moving then.
Clearly it didn't happen.
I let things get in my way a lot, like the fact that I only have one microphone to do this with.
This may not sound like a big problem, but to me, sound quality is important. Even with my favorite podcasts, if the sound quality is off, I have a harder time getting into it. It feels like there is just too much interference between the podcaster and me the listener.
I d't want this to be the case with my podcast.
But then I realized, for the most part, this poor quality was for one of two reasons. 1.) they were just starting out and have NO idea what they were doing OR 2.) something went wrong, but because they know their listeners would be disappointed if they didn't put it out there just because something got mucked up a bit, they do it anyway with a disclaimer at the beginning.
I always still listen. So I guess it doesn't get to me as much as I thought... and I need to cut myself some slack because I have NO idea what I am doing, and that should be part of the journey. It may be an adventure I begin on my own (with a guest of course - I am definitely not comfortable with sitting and talking to a microphone just me...)
Soon, I will make this podcast happen. Not sure how soon, but please know, this blog is abandoned no more.
If you want to read more about why I am finally getting the ball rolling here and maybe a hint at what the first episode will be about, please check out my post HERE.
