First off: apologies. I haven’t been as present as I should have this last week. I’ve got an upcoming conference, my regular work duties, and something brand new that I’m very excited about!
But not quite ready to share!
But here’s what I wanted to talk about: podcasting.
Years ago I had a podcast which I dropped because it felt like too much work. It seemed (to me) like less people were interested in podcasts, and I just didn’t enjoy putting them together.
At the previous Blogworld (in LA) podcasters felt like they were 2nd class citizens. I didn’t even realize podcasting was a big thing anymore!
This latest Blgworld (in NYC) had a much bigger focus on podcasting, and it feels like it couldn’t have come at a better time.
In talking with some of the top bloggers and content creators, it seems like they all had podcasts going or were about to start them.
Intrigued, I started listening to a bunch of podcasts, including Social Triggers Insider, Smart Passive Income and Eventual Millionaire, among others.
They were great!
In addition, I was able to listen while I was stacking wood, mowing the lawn and commuting.
While I wouldn’t describe that as “free of distractions”, I would argue that it was less distracting than having a dozen other links to click on, 12 other videos being recommended, or thousands of tweets competing for my attention.
So, yes: a podcast is going to be part of this next big thing I’m doing!
I’m wondering how many of you have tried podcasting or are currently doing one. Feel free to share links, tips, success stories, etc. I’d love to check out your podcast…it’s just the thing I need for the next time I mow my lawn!
