So, podcast episode-wise, I simply started reading my posts.
But that ended up being pretty boring. (Plus, I edit and change my posts all the time. So I don’t like locking down a single version of them in the way recording them must.) So then I was thinking that not that many people asked for my blog to be audible.
So then I thought I’d drop the podcast. Except that now I’ve learned how to do them. I’ve got the awesome Yeti Bluc mic, the GarageBand ’11: I’m … podcast-ready, baby. (Not that it’s a phenomenal technical challenge, or anything. But for me turning on a lamp without breaking something or electrocuting myself to death is a major accomplishment.)
So I floated this new idea on my FB page, and thought I’d now ask it here:
I was thinking that once a week—on Fridays—I’d put up a new episode of my podcast. But instead of reading posts, I’d talk about all the stuff I wanted to write about that week—or just want to talk about generally—but for whatever reason wasn’t able to get around to. I could talk about a big post I might have done that week, and about its comments and all that; I could talk about some of the interesting ideas and letters I’d gotten in that week; I could read and answer a letter I hadn’t been able to get to—just hodge-podgey stuff like that. And later (when I know how) I could interview people.
All that sort of stuff would be really nice for me. It’d be a lot of fun.
Does it sound like anything you’d listen to?
If so, lemme know, and I’ll move ahead with it. I’ll just delete the episodes I’ve thus far put on my podcast, and … start the new one this Friday!
Fun, right? Thanks for help/input. I’m excited! But also just now in a Starbucks. So, you know. I’m stifling my giggling. Because, you know. People are eating.
Thanks again for your input/help/love/goodwill/eyeballs.
