I’m often asked why I started blogging – the honest answer is that I saw a technology that was being used by other people to create great stuff, and it looked like a lot of fun.
To be honest ‘it seemed like it would be fun’ would explain a lot of my life-choices, including the whole ambulance ‘thing’.
I’ve been listening to podcasts for quite a while, and thought that it was something I’d like to do.
So I have exactly that.
My first (very rough) podcast is up there for the whole world to hear.
WARNING: This podcast was made with the worlds cheapest microphone – when/if I do another one then I’ll spring for something more expensive.
I have no ‘stings’ (the annoying “This is radio KNEX 107.1 from Montana” with a sound effect over it), I also have no ‘amusing’ sound effects and I’d really like to have a nice copyright free piece of ambient music in the background (which means I need to dig out my old sequencing software at some point). What I do have is two great music tracks, a bit of me talking (in betwen the ‘umms’ and ‘errs’).
(I’m wondering how much work I’ll have to do on my ‘radio voice’)
My excuse for how it sounds is this – cheap equipment (a bad workman always blames his tools) and also I have no experience in this sort of thing at all. Still my bloggin improved with practice, so hopefully this will as well.
So, what do you think?
You can send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org, or just leave them in the comments box. I’m looking for podcast safe music, (i.e.creative commons licensed), or places where I can download the same, ‘radio stings’ and anything else that’ll make the show better.
Rotten eggs can be thrown when you next see me.
