Talking Out Loud

I think about this blog a lot.  Probably too much really.  I just want it to be consistently good.  I don't need thousands of followers, but it would be nice.  It would be amazing if this was my job.  I already treat it like it is, but it would be wonderful if it was a paying job.  Which it isn't, but that's fine.  I'm still going to do it either way, but I'm sure you know what I'm saying.

The big thing that I've been thinking about is podcasting.  I listen to a few and I think it would be more interesting if I was able to do my interviews via podcast.  Sitting down with the performer/band for about an hour and being able to ask follow up questions to their answers.  I think it would be a lot more fun and interesting.  I'm not knocking what I'm doing, because I do like to read a good interview.  The other thing that would be cool in doing this, is playing the music.  Talk about individual tracks, play some of them.  It would be like Rockline, minus the audience interaction.

I'm just talking out loud right now.  I have no money nor knowledge to get this off the ground.  Well, I do have some knowledge of podcasting, but the money to get this going...I just don't have.  I know it doesn't cost that much, but with a baby on the way and no job...money is completely foreign to me, right now.  And no, I'm not asking for money from you guys.  The only thing I'd ask from my audience would be more information on podcasting.  I'm not that kind of guy.

Thanks for reading...


  1. Wow, I didn't realize that rockline was still a going concern. That was sometimes a good listen on road trips. What startup costs do you envision?

  2. I'm not really sure. I know I need a USB headset and my buddy Ted, who really is a Tech Guru, has made a couple suggestions. Like I said, I'm just talking out loud right now. I have no money to put into this, so if that means keep doing the interviews via email...that's what I'll do. It's just me wanting the blog to be cooler. I think it would be cool to have an audio interview with a cool band/performer and be able to play some of that band/performers tunes. Especially, if it's a band that is only a regional act right now.

  3. Hmmm... I'm sure you've thought of it already, but you could always try recording one using whatever you already have access to (skype? video camera?) and if it doesn't come out well enough to use, you could just transcribe it. Wish I knew more about it.

  4. It's alright Josh. There maybe a solution soon enough. A happy medium so to speak. When I know more...I'll blog on it. Stay tuned...
