I decided to give Podcasts a try, and by try, I mean do my own. I really started to learn more about how to create one by looking into Soundtrap to use with my students. But with the end of the year coming up so quickly and the mix of tests, changed schedules and other events, it just did not happen. So I decided to do my own, without any real direction to go in.
I have been a listener of podcasts for a while and have been fortunate to be a guest on some as well. Last year I was a guest on Vicki Davis’ show, which was an awesome surprise and great experience.. Dr. Will had me as a guest last spring and I had the opportunity to talk with Andrew Wheelock, Coffee With a Geek Podcast creator as well.
I have many friends who have podcasts and they are amazing, the sound, so professional and so well done. I know that I am not going to be at that level…at least not yet. I have not found much time lately to write, and will also be very limited in writing in a few weeks once I have shoulder surgery, so I guess the time is now for me to try this podcast thing out.
It will be random, it is unnamed, and the episodes vary in length. I am and will always be a work in progress. Still learning as I go, definitely room to grow, but just excited to try something different, even though it is a bit scary. It is one thing to put your words and ideas out there in writing, but another to speak openly through a podcast.
Episode 1 is here, very brief, very random, but hopefully will entertain, or give an idea, or even lead you to give me some feedback or even be a guest on my show, once I figure out how that works! Now if you want to listen, see if you can find the widget….
One thought on “Giving it a go: Only thing to lose is the possibility for learning”
I’m right there with you. I love podcasts and starting my own is a goal for 2018. I look forward to sharing your journey
