- Post about something that made you happy today even if it’s just a small thing.
- Do this everyday for eight days without fail.
- Tag eight (or as many as you want) of your friends to do the same.
I’ve been podcasting for over 18 months now, and a member of AMP for just over a year. In this time, I’ve struggled to gain an identity and make an impression on the podcasting community. As it stands now, I’ve probably got 50% more listeners now, than I did when I first started back in March 2008... but it’s not about the numbers. It’s about the people. I’ve always had the support from my core listener-base, consisting mostly of friends and family, but of recent weeks I’ve also had support from my podcasting peers. Maybe it’s because they know I mean business? Because they know I’m taking it seriously? Whatever the reason, I don’t know.
But it creates a glow within me that I just cannot explain. Friends and family will always accept who you are and what you do. That’s a wonderful thing... but the peers of your “profession” have no such obligation. To receive comments, support and even praise... well, it’s just amazing.
Podcasting has become a big part of my life, and I owe a lot of that to the support of the podcasting and listening communities.
Having said all that, if you could see your way to helping me bring my regular listener base up beyond 35... ;o)
