YouTube or Podcast?

I have been tinkering with the idea of doing a podcast. I have been told that I have a soothing and deep voice and it would make for great podcasts. Now, I love to write, and thinking about transferring my blog posts to a vocal presentation and sharing with the world sort of makes me a little nervous. Having my voice heard about the topics I write about I think would be cool but at the same time maybe a little nerve-wracking. Now, I have converted a few of my posts to a podcast, but I used a robot voice to tell the story, and taking the plunge to do it myself, sounds interesting. But to do it myself is a different story. You see I get passionate fast, on some of my topics, well actually all my posts so far. So, I might get carried away if a do podcasts on my topics – my voice tends to get away from me. Like I said I have been tinkering the thought, and even put together you know a few ideas on how long the podcasts would be and maybe leaving them unedited and live. I was thinking maybe keeping them to 15 minutes per episode, which includes an introduction of course, and an ending, right. So, my actual podcast episodes could be 12 to 13 minutes long – not sure yet. Now, the thing is I am doing YouTube videos, well I was, but now I am thinking maybe I should stick with YouTube videos and my blog. I am thinking maybe I should discuss my blog post in my YouTube video or podcast. I guess it comes down to whether I want people to see me or not.

I have to figure this out and get rolling on it, whether it will be podcasts or YouTube Videos I will need to get a plan rolling, really rolling, and put it into action. I am still working through all of this and trying to reach the masses by posting my thoughts, maybe video blogging, and deciding on other avenues of income. I want to enjoy myself, share my experiences as a father, friend, co-worker, and partner. Sometimes I wished there were socials platforms when I was growing up only in the aspect of how to do certain things. Everything I learned I learned the hard way, not that it is a bad thing, but it would have been nice to have some help when I was growing up. Yeah, I know there is a lot of blogs, YouTube channels, websites, and other social media outlets out there sharing their experiences, providing ideas on how to deal with kids, jobs, investing, and DYI projects, but I don’t think it will hurt to add one more.

So, as I continue to think about what I am going to do next, I will keep you posted. This will be a short post, so I wanted to say thank you for stopping by and reading and I want to leave you with this thought, “I think you can agree that we are all trying to find a better way, not struggle so much, and enjoy the good things in life. Maybe not like the ultra-rich, but comfortably. So, don’t give up, keep pushing forward, I truly believe that if you don’t stop trying, something will eventually give you that satisfaction – best of luck”.

Strange but true, I was born in San Salvador, as an abroad US citizen. It sounds strange, but you see, my mother was 5 months pregnant and happen to be visiting San Salvador. She slipped and fell in a pool and well, I was born. I am a twin, but unfortunately, he did not make and I did. My mother’s side of the family happens to be well of, and I had the opportunity to live a nice life early in my childhood. You know, private school, servant, nice home, and vacations. Things change when my mother decided to follow my father to the United States and well, that is where my story begins. I started a blog a while back, but life sort of hit and I left it behind, but now as I am a bit older, I decided I needed an avenue to share my experiences with others, while at the same time allowing me to open up and talk like I am on someone’s couch, I guess you could say. This blog will be more like an open book, created by experiences that I have had throughout my life. Experiences that many could relate to and what I did or how I handled it, you know after the fact. You never know there just might be a piece of information, idea, an option that someone could use and it would help them through the experience. Just remember these are my experiences, things I have been through, work through, and lived through – it does not mean I am right, but it does not mean I am wrong – it is simply an experience.
