My dear friend Jennifer Navarrete of Brewing Media is the founder of NaPodPoMo, the National Podcast Posting Month, which is in turn based on NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month. The idea is, for the month of November, create ONE podcast every day, to get yourself into a routine, convince yourself it isn't that hard, and make enough progress to prove you can do it!
I've always intended to podcast, but kept stopping myself. Here are some of the ways:
- I need a real microphone.
- I'm not dressed for a video today.
- I don't have the right equipment.
- I can't decide which service to use to distribute it.
- I need to make time to plan out a whole series.
Cinchcast took away my barriers - a simple iPhone app, from which I press "Record", talk to it, and then press Post, with the option of posting to Facebook, Twitter, or straight to my blog. It really WAS a cinch.
And Jennifer took away my barriers with the simple suggestion of "Just try it." Thanks for being a great role model and coach for fearless adoption and "fail fast" methodology.
