To podcast or not to podcast – that is the question
Now I am writing this post, fully aware that I have told myself a hundred times that I need to start podcasting, but I have yet to get the ball off the ground on this. I even have a podcasting group here on Markethive with suggestions on how to start a podcast, and I even have purchased books on the subject.
Here is my group, btw. https://markethive.com/group/originalpodcasting
What is the reason? It is not for lack of content. I have plenty of blogs here on Markethive I could use for podcasting, so lack of content is not the issue. I could say that I am not ready to put up a companion website to go along with the podcast. I guess that is partially true because it is very helpful to have that along with a podcast.
Is it a lack of fancy audio equipment? No, because although it might be nice to have, it is really not necessary to start out. You can get started with the most basic microphone and headphones and get more "techy" later on.
Pure and simple, I confess it is simply due to a lack of initiative. That is a polite way to say it is due to laziness. Yes, I admit it. Maybe with that confession, I will come closer to getting it off the ground.
In any case, I would like to make the following comments about the state of podcasting. Today, 9/16/202 Amazon announced that you can now find podcasts on Amazon Music.
This is a good move, since I think every streaming music service should have podcasts as part of their offering. Even Pandora has podcasts for goodness sake. Apple Music is one of the few streaming services that still separates the two. Come on Apple, let's get with the program and stop doing things your own way. Well that is kind of their motto after all, right? Who should be surprised?
Okay, I will take a vote. Who thinks I should start at least a weekly podcast? If I get enough votes, I may just breakdown and go ahead with it.
Thanking you in advance for your support.
