I have always enjoyed trying out new things and have been wanting to start a podcast for ages. I experimented last year by recording some of my short stories using a podcast app and then trying to review some books and films. But I originally didn’t give myself enough time and life took over.
Now I am determined to have another go. This time I will slowly but surely establish a basic podcast about my thoughts on entertainment, current affairs and the environment. Hopefully I will engage some listeners and be able to discuss books and TV shows in more detail than on my blog and offer some blogging tips too.
This week I mention a thrilling IMDB TV/ Amazon drama based on the Alex Ryder books. I also talk about a short, but impressive, book called ‘State of the Union.’ My intention is to discuss each subject in a bitesize chunk so you can skip through to one that interests you.
If you are a new blogger then maybe my weekly tips for developing your blog will be handy. I would love for people to add comments to each episode with their own ideas about the things that I review as well as their tips for helping a blog to flourish.
Please check it out and drop a comment to help me get a conversation going. I appreciate anyone taking the time to help me get started. Please also consider following my blog for content about books, entertainment and the environment.
After experimenting with short podcasts last year, I have decided to go for it this year and start to try and build a podcast that compliments this little blog. Having already tried Youtube (which made me feel shy) I am definitely more enthusiastic about recording podcasts.
In line with the blog, I want to keep discussing books and entertainment, with regular reviews and commentary. I also want to keep being real to myself and mentioning things that matter to me. One such topic is climate change which I will drip feed into my podcast episodes when appropriate.
It is hard to establish a new podcast so I would really appreciate if you would consider giving up a minute of your time to boost my first episode. Also feel free to give me some honest feedback in the podcast comments or below this blog post. I want to learn how to make a podcast that is relatable and enjoyable. Feel free to make suggestions.
Although I don’t have much technology, I think I can get across some good messages and share some interesting reviews, starting this week with a brilliant book set in wartime Amsterdam and a TV show about a woman trying to escape from a toxic relationship. I also intend to mention some blogging tips that I have come across as I have developed my blog, hoping that some of you may find them useful.
Last week I mentioned that I wanted to try and establish a little podcast to supplement my blog. Starting with short episodes, I am exploring how to get across some of the content that I want to cover. Hopefully as time goes by I will end up with a format that works comfortably.
In this second episode I review the Dune movie as well as discussing my initial thoughts on the Glasgow Summit. Also I talk about two books that I am currently reading. One is a non-fiction book by Matt Haig and another is a collection of short stories by Joanne Harris.
Please check out my podcast, even if just for a minute and help me get it off the ground. It is nerve-wracking putting your thoughts on tape but I am very excited to do it.
