The Hobbyist Hangout’s RETURN

It’s been a while since my last podcast episode. I even said last time (Dec 2021) that I was going to try and be more regular with my podcast. But, I lied. Not intentionally – I totally expected to keep up with the podcast that I kicked up in only a few days. But alas, here we are 8 months later. Well, if you have a fix for more stationery conversations – than you are really going to enjoy what is to come.

My original goal of creating the podcast was to interview different people about their hobbies. Having a background in radio broadcasting gave me that extra confidence I needed to make this happen. I was having so much fun with my Instagram Lives and talking with people on those, it felt right. What I wasn’t expecting was the building anxiety of trying to make something like that happen. I can plan a meeting, I can record it, but mixing the podcast with full-time work, Youtube, and Instagram felt like too much. I was overwhelmed. Period.

After giving the podcast a break, and reflecting on it all, I decided that I need to take ownership of what I was doing. Just because the podcast wasn’t what I thought it was going to be, didn’t mean that it was dead. I needed to, and wanted to, make it something again, so I rethought it a little bit.

The next approach to the podcast will still be about hobbies. That isn’t changing. But what is changing is that it doesn’t need to be new every time. I already have a Bullet Journal episode and there will be another one. Why? Well, because it’s a topic that people like, they know me for it, and why not talk about it? My next episode is going to be about notebooks – my love for them, my collection, and what I want in a perfect notebook.

I am excited to have this new episode come out this Friday. It’s going to be a video podcast (if available) streaming on all major platforms, and will also go live on Youtube Friday Mornings.
