Why Start A Podcast? Follow Your Heart, Not Everyone Else

Why Start A Podcast?To Start Or Not To Start A Podcast – That Is The Question!

SO in the last couple of weeks there have been 2 well written and thought-provoking articles that use podcasting as its focus. Two sides of a debate on should you start a podcast.. They also raise points that apply to many things in life, particularly when viewed through the lens of the internet. Take the time to read these 2 articles.

Please, Please, For The Love Of God: Do Not Start a Podcast

Please, Please, For The Love Of God: Ignore Ryan Holiday And Just Start Your Podcast

The first, in essence, says don’t bother doing a podcast unless you are going to be totally excellent at it, and put massive amounts of effort (and resources) into it.
The other, in essence, says have a go because you never know, you might be great at it, and then we would have all missed out if you had listened to others and never even tried.

What is my point of view?

Really consider VERY hard WHY you want to start a podcast. What attracts you about it? What realistic levels of thought, creativity and effort are you willing and able to invest in your podcast. What benefits are you expecting from your podcasting efforts? By the way, I have written quite a few blog posts on these topics that you might want to take a look at to help you consider these points.

This post looks at the varying types of podcast that are common in our current ‘podcasting universe

And this one looks at the idea of finding a deep & specific niche in your podcast category

There are plenty more…

If you want to start a podcast just because it seems like the right thing to do, just because ‘everyone else’ has a podcast, just because various gurus are flogging you their latest route to riches, just because, just because, just because. Then maybe it isn’t right for you.

DO it because you really want to.

When you are clear on what it really takes, and have looked at your podcast strategy, and have realistic plans & expectations, and still really, really,really want to do it.

Then go and start your podcast. I am here to help you.
