Today I am introducing the Hard Hat HR Audioblog podcast! After a lot of hard work and educating myself on podcasting, I am pleased to release the first fourteen episodes. Having been an avid podcast consumer and fan for many years, I am thrilled to join in and finally become a podcaster myself.
Now, the Audioblog is simply an audio version of the latest Hard Hat HR blog post where I simply just read and record what I wrote. Nothing fancy – at least not yet. My goal is to start off this way and as I continue to publish blog posts with accompanying audioblog podcasts, I will improve my podcasting skills where I will eventually sound more professional and conversational.
I know these first attempts are not the best but I figured I just needed to start. I will improve as I move forward. This, I have found throughout my life, is the only way to get better at something.
As you’ve noticed, I am a short form blogger with my posts usually consisting of approximately 300 –600 words. This, of course, makes me a short form podcaster since I am simply just reading and recording my blog posts at this time.
I’ve settled into a schedule of two blog posts a week – Monday and Wednesday – and will publish the accompanying audioblog on the same schedule.
It is important to note that I am starting my podcasting adventure with a very small budget. I am using a very inexpensive microphone so the quality of these first episodes will be relatively poor compared to most podcasts. So please bear with me as I continue to learn and advance my podcasting skills.
I also strongly encourage any feedback you can give me so I can learn what I can do better and what I am doing well. I really want to make this work and sincerely encourage your feedback.
