In my last post, I told you that I’ll skip the Youtube channel because I don’t feel comfortable enough with it. Instead, I’ll start up a podcast. In this post, I’ll just vent some thoughts on that – and please, do feel free to leave comments for me to consider (easiest on Facebook, wherever I post this). Thank you in advance.
So, I think this podcast will not come out weekly. Not even every other week, but rather once a month. And I think I’ll make longer episodes – somewhere between 30 – 60 minutes each. That gives me more time to talk through whatever topic I want to discuss on that given day. And with episodes once a month instead of weekly, I’ll have more time to plan and do it well.
I also think I’ll change the angle a bit, when it comes to topics. For example, I think perhaps that one of the episodes will be on religion versus spirituality, why I am spiritual rather than religious, et cetera. I’ll have to think more on that one, though, to find subjects and angles that might be interesting to more people than myself. 😀
I think – and hope, that this will be better than I feel the Youtube channel would have been in the long run. While it’s absolutely possible to listen to a Youtube video rather than watching it, listening to a podcast feels more relaxing. I admit to listen to extremely few, if any, myself, but I know that people listen to them while cleaning, walking/running, so I’m thinking that might be a good thing. Giving the opportunity to listen to the podcast when you’re doing something else.
The first episode of this podcast may take a month or so before I’ve figured out everything. I need to find some good free audio to use. I need to remind myself on how to use the software to create audio files. I need to make an intro and an outro. I need to decide on a topic, and take notes on what to talk about – much like with the videos, but if these episodes are to be longer, I need to make sure I have something to talk about for all that time. 😀
I actually feel quite good about this. I have no idea how it will turn out. Hopefully well enough for people to listen to it. If you have any suggestions on what I could or should talk about – let me know. By now, I hope you have a good enough idea of who I am, what I think is interesting and important, to suggest something that could work for all of us.
How very interesting. As I think about this, writing about it, my feeling about what it should be is taking shape. It may be a surprise to all of us – who knows. But the idea of being a voice in the middle of the night appeals to me. I’m going to really have to think about this. It may turn out completely different than my original idea when I was deciding between Youtube and podcast several months ago.
And actually, the more I do think about it, the better I feel. I’m aware that I keep repeating myself right now, but it’ll be very, very interesting to see how this turns out.
So while I spend some time thinking about this, planning, researching tools and so on – please be patient with me. I really do believe this is important, and I do think I can contribute. Sure, my journey looks different from yours – we’re not the same. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have shared experiences, or that we can’t learn from each other.
Oh, and like I said in my previous post – I’ll go back to blogging more regularily, and not only do follow-up posts to the Youtube videos.
Until later, peeps!
With love. ♥
