Over the last year I have been thinking about starting a podcast. I have a concept in mind, an outline drawn, and a website compliments of the SDM (Sweet Darlin’ Man). What is stopping me? Two things: the technology and my travel schedule.
Well, to say that I am not adept at technology would be an understatement. While I have always learned how to use whatever technology I have needed it has not been without a requisite amount of gnashing of teeth and cursing. I use technology as I use my car, without any desire to know how it really works. It’s just not like knitting where I am willing to frog and tink, and tweek forever until I get the product I had in mind.
Travel , both planned and spontaneous, is one of the wonderful rewards of having worked hard and retired early. Well, actually not that early but before the magic 65. The SDM and I are on the go often and I do not want to start a podcast that I cannot produce on a regular basis. I listen to a lot of podcasts and I do so admire those that are produced on a regular basis with few interruptions and I would strive to do the same. But I am writing this blog from our Montana Cabin, we return to CA on Friday and depart the next Thursday for Alaska. See what I mean?
That said, I think my concept would lend itself to being prerecorded when I have travel plans, and I could keep one in the box for any spontaneous travel opportunities. Hmm, more thinking.
