#LISTEN: Allow me to RE-Introduce… The Digital Well Publisher Podcast

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

One of the things that I have gotten into over the last year is podcasting. As a professional writer, I really have not aggressively gone after opportunities to speak. Yes, I used to be a teacher. However, honestly, my time in front of the classroom was limited. I was a teacher to adult students and preferred to go back and forth between leadership, administration, and classroom work. It gave me a nice way to mix up my work in a way that made sense for me.

As I have moved into owning my own business in the last few years, I have had my head down writing content for others. While I enjoy the work, I always felt like I had created more of a job for myself than a business. That was why I started teaching publishing to entrepreneurs. This presented an opportunity to create a business model that didn’t always depend upon me being a writing machine.

Starting this publishing boutique meant that I had to come from behind my computer and start showing my face a little bit more — something that was uncomfortable as hell at the beginning. Now I think I am settling in to it a bit more since I started podcasting a little over a year and a half ago.

I started podcasting as a way to force me to speak up a bit more. It’s easy for me to sit and write for hours. However I have to exercise a new muscle when speaking. It’s not that I can’t do it; it’s just that I want to be able to speak as easily as I can write. And that takes practice. Hence, the reason for starting the podcast.

I only produced about 10 or so episodes in the first year. I was so wrapped up in trying to make it perfect that I didn’t get to do as many episodes as I would have liked. I was also wrapped up in taking care of my hubby before and after the kidney transplant. But now that we are in a new space, I’d like to move forward with podcasting… because I enjoy it!

So here is the re-introduction of The Digital Well Publisher Podcast!

It’s finally here.

Ladies and gentlemen: It’s the Digital Well Publisher Podcast.

After a lot of thinking, prodding, and pushing myself to finally JUST DO IT, I finally recorded my first podcast. I’m ashamed to say that I got so involved in the details of trying to make a perfect podcast, like finding the right music, making podcast art, and trying to find the perfect podcast hosting service, that I have quite literally lost weeks and who knows how many potential subscribers.

I went to a one day podcast conference here in Orlando, FL in late December. The one thing that everyone told me was that the first episode will be the worst, particularly as your skills improve.

However that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a listen. I actually think the content is very valuable.

For now, you can listen to it right here on the blog. In a couple weeks, it should also be available via Itunes and Stitcher. That way you will be able to subscribe to it on your phone or computer.

In the meantime, let me know what you think of episode 1!

I hope this inspires you to move forward in making your dream of writing a book that changes the world a reality.
