Why am I making a podcast?
I’ve been interested in content creation since highschool, I made a youtube channel and filled it with silly videos of me having fun with friends, reached around 20k subscribers then horror struck as I got dox’d, I deleted all the videos and then the channel and stopped altogether, but now I’m older and realized I’d like to feel heard and expand my hobbies into some at least partially creative, so I started a blog, it’s early days but I realize not all content is fitting for blogposts but I’ve been enjoying it so I figured I’d expand even further into content creation.
Intentions of the podcast?
I’d also like to layout my short term and long term intentions with the podcast, because I believe that’ll offer some insight into how long it will run for and what it’s likely to encompass, I have no intention of podcasting becoming my job I think if it did it would risk sullying it, I’ve thought for a while about starting a podcast and my intentions are maybe to have some level of engagement like people emailing me (email@example.com) and at least a few regular listeners, in the more long term obviously I’d like to make *some *money off my podcast, though just enough to cover the cost of it $10 a month, but for the first season that wouldn’t ever be a concern and it’s unlikely it would in the future.
To break down my current plans for season one may be a bit preemptive since any of these topics may change but it should give a rough idea of the things I like to talk about, these are in no particular order.
