Talk about a long hiatus!
This is what I have had from the world of blogging, podcasting and video creating. It makes me sad really when I look back on the past few months and don’t have content to make into a reel.
When I used to do Gray In Oz – The Video Blogs, that was one of the things that always excited me every season change. I would make an intro video with clips from the best moments of the previous seasons. I LOVED making those. Now that I have been not doing it so often, it makes me excited for what’s coming.
For the past six and a half years I have been a full time performer with Disney. This has been an experience like no other. I have had the opportunity to do some INCREDIBLE things that I may have never have had the opportunity to do elsewhere. All I can say about that time is that it was a blessing.
I am not in a new role, working in social media. I couldn’t be more excited and grateful. The opportunity to FINALLY be working in the Communication business after so much work and trying to do, is a new blessing.
What does all of this have to do with blogging, and podcasting you ask? Well it has everything to do with it. I finally have a set work schedule now! This means I can finally devote consistent time to my blog, website, and podcast. I have never been so excited about this to this point.
When I began recording over on Anchor, I stepped away from video. I did a few videos here and there to compliment the podcast, but it was not consistent. I am hoping to do it all now that I will have some extra time on my hands.
In the meantime, while thoughts are being thrown around, and brainstorming is happening, research is also happening. The best way to learn a craft and make a plan is to watch, listen, and learn from others who have been successful in that field.
Copy someone else? Absolutely not. But learning and adapting into something new? I am all about that.
Right now I don’t really have a set timeline for what I am going to do with my podcast, The Mix. However, I hope that once I get some solid material and outline done, it will be something I can be proud of. If you see sporadic episodes show up here and there, don’t worry. It’s part of the growing part.
I want The Mix to continue to be what it was back in August. A variety of many topics. Well roundedness is something that has always been encouraged in most of the situations I have found myself in. For someone wanting to be in news, like me, I think it’s good to be as knowledgeable on many things as possible. That is what I hope to do with my show. Have a mix!
I am always open to feedback, so I hope that whoever may read this will give me some constructive feedback as I move forward.
