2015, I am in you

Between you and me the title of this post is a bit of a joke. I’ve always found the phrase “<blank>, I am in you” treading a fine line of being off-putting at the same time as amusing. I still can’t decide what to make of it. Are there any colloquial phrases like that for you?

Goal Check

Some goals I had at the start of the year were

  • Launch a freelance writing career
  • Start a podcast
  • Finish revisions and send a query for the novel I finished in November.

At this time I’ve done the first one out of those three. The year is about one-third over now. That might indicate I’m on on track with these things. That isn’t the case though because these were all goals I put into motion at some point LAST year. Between making TRIPLE TIMe, a new gig that looks like it could lead to a long-term opportunity, and my volunteer activities, I don’t have much time to start a podcast or much mental energy to revise my novel. Well, not if I want to get enough sleep on any given night.

Who needs sleep, really?

On a freelancer self-help spree earlier this month, I picked up a copy of The Productive Writer by Sage Cohen at my local library. A mini-review is coming. As soon as I find make the time to finish reading it.

My New Jam: Creative Live – This Week is All About Podcasting!

Power your podcast with Storytelling course.

View this course and others at https://www.creativelive.com.

Last week I learned about Creative Live and today I took my first course, called Podcasting 101.

It was an amazing course taught by John Lee Dumas and several other knowledgeable podcasters who’ve figured out how to make a living from their passion.

You know how swimmers turn their head sideways when they get water in their ears? My head is sideways now because of all the knowledge! I learned a ton.  :headphones:

You can too! Check out course offerings and start learning live, free. Access to the course and other materials once the live stream is over is available for a fee. Get those burning questions answered live and chat with your classmates in addition to learning great information about the topics you care about.

I look forward to taking Power Your Podcast with Storytelling from Alex Blumberg (NPR’s Planet Money, This American Life) Thursday and Friday.

A special shout-out goes to We Are LA Tech Podcast host, Espree Devora, for flying to San Francisco to attend in person!

LA Locals: I think I’m sure she’ll be happy to give you a great download of this experience if you RSVP to the next LA Podcasters Meetup on Tues., Oct. 21, at Bodega Wine Bar, in Santa Monica.

Have you taken (or taught) any courses on Creative Live? Which ones?


Money Girl’s Quick & Dirty Tips- a podcast recommendation

I was just listening to one of my favorite podcasts called 'Money Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for a Richer Life' and realized that I've been subscribed to it for many months now and think it's just fantastic. So, why not share with others who may be interested in the subject?

It's part of the Quick and Dirty Tips series, which includes useful information from Money Girl, Mr. Manners, Grammar Girl, Legal Lad, etc., on a variety of topics. Each host gives tips and advice on concepts that can be complex to grasp, and they do so in an interesting, easy-to-understand way, in an easily digestible few minutes.

I'm subscribed to the free podcast(s) via iTunes, but there are other ways to access the info if you don't have iTunes on your computer, such as via the transcripts on the site.

Here's the main site: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/default.aspx
