I know I haven’t written anything in here for a very long time but I have truly been busy. I have been more then delving into the world of podcasting. It is so up my alley podcasting of course. Though there is still plenty that I can learn about podcasting I think that my Radio experience has certainly given me an advantage in creating a podcast for sure.
Of course mostly I have been converting my radio programmes that I already do into podcasts, like my Fooltime show and Half-time. I’ve created Facebook pages for them as well so that I can get feed- back about the shows I guess.
I have also thought about a Radio Times type of show which I have been looking through a lot of podcasts to see if other people have done anything similar. The podcasts that I have been listening to are more the informative types of podcasts like Audacity to podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Smart Passive Income, Waking up with Sam Harris, you know those sort of podcasts.
My favourite podcast at the moment is, My Dad wrote a porno, which is just hilarious. I can’t really describe what this podcast is about but the best thing to do is to just listen to the podcast, you’ll either love it or hate it, or both. I’ll just say that sometimes I have burst out laughing uncontrollably in public and gotten some very strange steers because that is just how funny this podcast is.
I’ve discovered that a lot of podcasts are centred around crime, and or mystery, I guess because people like to be scared and I suppose radio can give you the ways and means to be scared.
Those certainly aren’t my sort of things though and so I won’t be trying to recreate something that I have no interest in that is for sure.
Though I haven’t had the time to blog all too much of late I still have been thinking about stuff to blog, and not just for this particular blog actually which is more like a diary type of thing where I get to write about the things going on in my head. Blogs, so I’ve learnt are more about getting a niche and writing about that sort of stuff. I notice also that people like to make lists, why they make lists is kind of beyond me though. For instance they make lists like, “The 10 best ways to make money”, or “The 11 hottest tips to make money” or “13 money making tips” or, well I think you’re getting the point.
I’m in a blogging Facebook page group and I see people posting all the time about how to monetise, how to get traffic, etc. One lady wrote on the page that she was worried because she had just started a blog 2 days ago and she was wondering when the money was going to start pouring in….
I don’t know if it’s just me or are people so desperate for money that they need to start making money straight away or what. People are also going on about themes as if creating or finding a theme for their blog is the most important thing in the world. I’ll be honest themes are kind of important but I’m sure that there are more important things right. For me writing is more important, not making money and basically I’m just testing the waters to see how things are going to work out and to see if this is my kind of thing. Which it kind of is, at least I do like blogging that is for sure, but I do so like writing for myself and most blogs are more about writing for an audience.
As it goes I am probably going to start another blog, and the title of the blog will be…..”This Ridiculous World.”
This blog will be about, well as the title says, This Ridiculous World. After all, this world is so ridiculous and to be honest it’s the people who make it so. Writing about the people who make this world so, funny I think would be fun, and interesting to say the least. Mostly I would be focusing on the people that take themselves so seriously. Like for instance, Donald Trump delivers so much comedy gold that he will be very difficult to stay away from.
Is it truly ridiculous that a business man and a Billionaire is the president of the United States of America, well maybe not but some of his supporters truly are. For instance, Fox news continue to talk badly about Hollywood celebrities, yet hello, their president is a Hollywood celebrity isn’t he?
Here’s an example of something ridiculous from my very own home town of Gisborne. Gisborne is touted as being the first city to see the sun, the place where Captain Cook first made landfall in the great nation of what would be called New Zealand.
In 1969 they celebrated the bi-centenary of his landing by erecting a statue of Captain Cook on Kaiti Hill overlooking the bay. How ridiculous is it to learn that years later the statue was actually not a statue of Cook at all, in fact it was just a statue imported from Italy, by the Captain Cook Breweries in Auckland. It’s not even a true depiction of Captain Cook at all, yet when there were calls to get rid of that statue people came out defending the statue saying that it doesn’t matter that it’s not a true depiction of Captain Cook it should still be up there because it is part of our history. One could say that our district was ripped off by putting a statue of an iconic figure someone who it isn’t even a true depiction of that person on top of our hill, yet the die-hard, staunchly fierce dumbasses of our district want the statute to remain. I want the statue to remain also, as a reminder that there are some absolutely fanatical DUMBASSES in our region.
So while I will be starting up another blog very soon I will endeavour to continue to blog on here. Till whenever though, sweet dreaming y’all.
