Podcast girl storms the castle

Well, it looks like I'm going to be a podcast host. I would like to take this opportunity to say

HOLY CRAP!!

As a non-linear thinker, the thought that I must now "follow through" with my great idea has smacked me in my bewildered face. I felt the same way when I was training for the "walk-the-walk" marathon and raising funds. There was simply no going back. I had placed myself in a position and it was step up or nothing. I have to laugh at my own idiocy.

What I hadn't realized is what a pain technology can be. For little me to do my own podcast is easy - I just use an online host and babble on about anything I want. But to do one for a business, with music clips, involves servers and bandwidth and tracking and marketing considerations, all of which is somewhat beyond me at the moment. And I'm only just learning what a new medium podcasting still is, so I'm freaking out somewhat.

DO YOU HEAR THAT? I'M FREAKING OUT!

Whoa. In the voice of a guy named Ted:
Dude.
Chill.

I'm off to bed. The weekend will bring research, writing, toying around with my Audacity software and generally trying to figure out what the hell to do next. Whew.

Look upon it as a challenge that you are more than capable of meeting - it actually sounds like it could be fun, especially the research bit.
