Building “The Mix”

Building “The Mix”
This is my third week on Anchor which means it is also the third week of the audio version of my show The Mix.
It has been such fun so far! I am so grateful for Anchor and all that it is allowing not only myself but so many people to do with podcasting.
I have already learned a lot about podcasting and also about Anchor itself. It is such a joy to connect with people and learn more about social media from personalities like Ileane from Ileane Speaks and Kathy over at WP Barista.
Dr. DAN over at Anchor Talk also has so much useful information on using Anchor itself as a platform.
There are so many other amazing stations as well to dive into for great content.
One of the many reasons I started this podcast is to learn. To try different things. See what works, what doesn’t, and have fun in the process. That’s why I call it “The Mix.”
I like variety.
I like to talk about and learn about so many different things that there is no other title that would work.
This too is what led me to want to be a journalist. A love of learning and talking about things with people!!
Trying to build a presence on social media as a journalist means spending much time doing so.
Time is precious to me as I MUST work full-time (sometimes six days) to provide for myself while I am in school and pursuing this career change.
Having said that the format of “The Mix” will probably change and be experimented often.
microphone-2469293_1920The first two weeks I did an episode every day. I learned quickly that was not within my means. I want my shows to be done well and as professional as I know how. This means spending time on them. Researching, writing, and finding great content to talk about.
I have ranged from two to four hours spent in total just for one 20 to 30 minute episode.
While I LOVE doing it and it feels like the time just flies by it is hard to find that much time every day.
In order to be able to get the most out of the time I will for now only be doing “The Mix” on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
This will allow me to be more invested in the individual shows and then on the other days of the week I can spend some more time on the “community” aspect which is THRIVING on Anchor.
I am connecting and learning in a way that I img_0928-1never have before on social media. So being able to utilize that community is important.
This format will probably change again in the coming weeks. I will learn new ways of doing things and try different experiments while having a blast building my life as a journalist.
Cuz like I often say… it’s always fun to add something new to “The Mix!”

Course Complete

I am excited to announce that I have completed my first MOOC on Udemy.

This course challenged me in many ways.

Hearing knowledge and learning lessons from a leading journalist is something that we journalism students dream of.

It encouraged me to continue pursuing this dream.  And also challenged me to constantly be searching for the truth in both my career and my daily life.

I am grateful that the time was taken to produce something like this for learners to absorb.

I call on other leaders in news to do more of this.  Share your stories and knowledge of the craft.

It is both useful and inspirational to those of us yearning to join the search for truth.

Here is my Certificate of Completion for Udemy’s Dan Rather on Journalism & Finding Truth in the News

Exploring Animal Kingdom – Part Two – Dinoland – The MIX

Dinoland is one of the most interactive and fun places in Animal Kingdom if you ask me.  There are so many fun things to do and see… and EAT!!  Some yummy in my tummy moments for sure up in there.

In today’s episode of The MIX, Matt and I explore some of the fun that is to be found there.

What’s your favorite thing to do in Dinoland?

Exploring Animal Kingdom – Part One – Everest – The MIX

So I super love animals and all of the fun attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  My friend Matt joined me there recently in his first appearance on The MIX.  We HAD to start the day off by riding one of my favorite roller coasters ever… EXPEDITION EVEREST!!  So much fun!!

One of these days I am going to figure out a way to actually video the entire experience, but this gives you a pretty good idea without me completely losing my camera.

What is your favorite thing to do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom?  Have you tried any of the new nighttime offerings?

Enjoy!

A Visit to Sprinkles – The MIX
