Something I noticed when I first started both my blog and my podcast is that I was overflowing with topic ideas. I had so many ideas that I thought I’d never run out. Even so, I decided write some of them down in case I ever reached a point when the ideas were not so plentiful. This proved to be a helpful little tip that I’ve tried to pass on to those who are just starting in content creation.
Recently I got a ping from a Discord server that I’ve not visited in several months, and it reminded me that the annual Blaugust blogging celebration was right around the corner. I was reminded of a community of fresh-faced content creators who, without the desire for status, fame, nor fortune, explode onto the scene once every year to start up a new hobby or revive an old one. I likewise pictured the selfless mentors who give time and advice freely throughout the course of the event, hoping to encourage the follow participants and subsequently add to their ranks. Lastly, my mind wandered back to a bygone era when I was much more active both on this blog and within the greater community. I realized that I have not recently posted about the latest step in my writing journey.
In this episode, I’ve got Brian and Roger formerly of the Contains Moderate Peril and Burton and Scrooge podcasts. We touch on many podcast and content creation-centered subjects, such as relating to your audience, the importance of a good co-host dynamic, and situations that might lead someone to finally call it quits.
