Speak into the microphone.
Admittedly, blogging is self-indulgent. Blogging assumes so much.
It assumes I have something to say.
It presumes I can say it cogently.
Then, there's the wistful assumption that people will actually read what I write.
But I have the technology to podcast.
I'm hooked on podcasts. Podcasts make up the majority of what I listen to every day.
So the prospect of creating my own podcast is wildly compelling.
I spent hours today trying to figure out how to create my podcast. I watched tutorials. I referred to many FAQ sites. I tinkered.
I rarely tinker.
And tonight, I'm spent.
Like any learning curve, I need to take a breather before the next incline. Late in the day, it became glaringly apparent that I'd overstretched my capacity to learn new things.
I know I'm not done.
Because, when I searched for a podcast to add to my favorites that pointed a podcasty lens on thrifting, I came up with nothing.
I want to create a podcast about being thrifty.
Off the top of my head, I can think of about a jillion podcast topics.
I just need to figure out how to make my technology turn into a podcast.
I learned a few things today, but I didn't retain much.
It's going to take some time.
So far, I'm only confident that I know I can speak into the microphone.
