First of all before I go any further I would like to wish every single one of you a very happy new year and is successful and safe 2019.
I have been given this some thought for quite a long time. In fact I would say it’s running into years. This idea I’ve had, I’ve been putting off for so long because of how complex it is to setup and do and how time consuming is can be. The idea I’ve had is to start podcasting. In the past when I looked into it you needed all sorts of plug-ins and different stuff to post your podcast to the different websites. So I was quite pleased when I recently stumbled across an app called Anchor.Fm. Anchor is brilliant as you can record Direct onto the app and it will post to all the podcasting websites for you. You do not need to set any of these up as it does the whole job for you saving you so much time and effort. The only thing you have to do is create an account on anchor make sure you either have a half decent microphone or talk into your phone as if you are on a phone call and that is pretty much it. You can even invite people to join you on your podcast from anywhere in the world so you can have a conversation about whichever subject you were talking about. Another nice touch that anchor has is a feature allowing people to call in to your show. You can either mentioned these call ins or actually post them to your show so people can hear them. I think this is a fantastic feature as it makes your podcast a bit more like a proper radio show.
Up to now I have done 3 or 4 podcasts so far but I am still struggling to get used to coming up with ideas for the shows and even to make myself sound interesting as admittedly I don’t think I have a very good voice for radio. I probably sound boring as hell haha. Over time I will get used to the way things are done and get more confident in doing the shows. Already I am making new friends in the podcasting community which I’m really pleased about as I love making new friends. This podcasting idea is by no means a replacement for our YouTube channel, it is just something different to do which at the moment I am really enjoying it and I am enjoying listening to other people’s podcasts as well.
If anybody would like to pop across to my podcasting channel here is the link
It would be great if you can show your support by following me and even calling into the show with messages or ideas or anything you like.
Thanks so much and take care everybody and catch up with you all very soon.
