This is a very quick decision. I’ve made a video for today, but while I was out walking my dog, it struck me – I think I’ll be better at making a podcast about this, than Youtube videos. I don’t really feel that comfortable in front of the camera, but I do feel ok with hearing my own voice.
When I came up with the idea of blogging – and more importantly, creating visual content (Youtube) on the topic of recovering from narcissistic abuse from a parent, I chose between Youtube and podcast. As you know, Youtube won – at that time. I’ve been wanting to try Youtube for a very long time, and this was the time to do it.
But let’s face it. I don’t feel too comfortable in front of the camera (my phone). I don’t think I’m that exciting to look at while I’m talking.
So – here I am, thinking that I’ll stop doing Youtube, and start making a podcast instead. I’ll publish it here, on the blog – and perhaps on other platforms as well, if I can figure out how. Preferably without having to pay for it. I have another new hobby that’s going to cost me a lot of money, and I don’t need yet another one that’ll cost money. 😀
I think a podcast will suit me better. I’ll feel safer that way. Not because I feel like I am exposing myself overly, but because I think it may be nicer to listen to only my voice. I don’t know, it’s one of those “listening to the radio in the middle of a rainy night” sort of things.
What do you think about it? What would you prefer?
Not that it matters. 😀 I’ve already made my decision. But I still like to hear what you think. I know it takes time before anything happens when you start up, regardless of what it is. I’ve only been at this for three months, so that’s not it.
I just think I’ll feel better making a podcast. That’s all.
So – this week will be a jump, obviously. A paus. A moment for me to reset my way of thinking about this, find what I need to create a podcast instead. I’ll get back to blogging more regularily, not only writing follow-up posts on the Youtube videos. I’ll let the Youtube channel stay, though, since I think it’s important.
My guess is I’ll be needing one or two weeks to get the podcast up and running. I need to find some things before I can get it up and running – and obviously, also record at least the first episode.
Wish me luck – and I hope you enjoy this podcast! 🙂
With love. ♥
