When I started doing my little solo podcast it was easy, I had a few topics to discuss and could just talk unscripted. However this became difficult after a few weeks and has since been put on hold.
Being motivated to continue on your own is harder that it sounds, well it was for me. Without someone to bounce ideas off it became difficult to both come up with topics and the motivation to go the extra mile (working late into the night after a day of work and family life).
This is also true for having someone to push you and have a schedule not to let them down.
So I don’t discourage a solo podcast but it didn’t work for me, I like to talk to others and have a good time.
On that note if anyone wants a guest or start a tech, Marvel or Star Wars podcast let me know 😀
Managed to get a podcast done (applause please…) now we have one feed again. I did a ‘What’s on my iPhone’ episode to get ready for inviting others on.
IOS ONLY PODCAST FEED: Here’s the link to my podcast feeds
Here are my home screens to go along with the episode.
It’s taken a good few weeks but I’m finally free of the iOS Only Anchor feed. If you search in iTunes or Overcast I’m seeing only my Libsyn feed so all’s good.
I’m currently on a little hiatus whilst this was being planned out but planning my next 5 or so episodes out so I’ll be back up and running by the end of the month.
2019 has already started with too many inputs, technology moves so fast and having a focus on Apple even more so – keeping up is tough so I’ve kind of declared podcast bankruptcy. I follow a lot of blogs (these days more independent writers) and I’m enjoying actually reading them rather than being constantly plugged into a podcast.
I’m not naming any names but some podcast networks also only invite on the same guests, not a lot of diversity in the Apple podcasting world for me to enjoy. There’s only so much attention I can give some people – especially when I’m trying to stay focussed and calm in 2019.
So I’ve paired my podcast listening down to about 5 shows now, the ones that also have a YouTube channel I’ll watch them rather than listen. I’m hoping this will bring some calm into my life and reduce the amount of headspace I’m giving Apple content. I actually find that I enjoy listening/watching to folks talking about comic books and Star Wars a lot more these days, maybe it’s time I started writing more about these subjects…
Here’s to listening to more music, reading more independent writers and getting off the always on news cycle.
I was really excited to have been invited onto one of my favourites The Outpost Show by Daryl Baxter. He’s had some great previous guests so hoping his listening numbers don’t go down after my appearance🤗.
Let me know what you think, I’ve got it queued up to see how I came across later.
I was pleased to be invited onto one of my favourite podcasts at the moment – BYOD. It’s been a while since I have been on someone else’s podcast but Greg and Nati made it easy and I thought we had a great conversation.
Here’s the link.
Just had the new iOS Only Libsyn feed approved. Just did a search in the podcast app and it’s now available.
There’s two feeds at the moment as the Anchor one is still live but should be gone this week.
