The pod cast mental mind game.

It’s been just about three weeks since I started doing a my daily podcast with nothing more than my iPhone and an app.

Strange as it may sound I will lend a valuable lesson that I’m getting better at dealing with rejection.

A year ago I was streaming War Craft on a daily basis I used to become really depressed the fact that one person would stop following me. Granted I never had more than 10 followers but that one person decided that they didn’t want to follow my shenanigans would actually really depress me.

I check my podcast statistics on an almost unhealthy level but I don’t mind these days that’s the figures have gone from 23 at its peak right down to 15 as of today.

Granted it is a touch disappointing to think that I might have cracked the 20 subscriber threshold as I only ever thought I would be lucky if I got 10 people to subscribe, yet I put that down to feeling excitement coming down to normality.

Last week at one point I had 23 subscribers and whilst it might seem silly to get excited about a figure so small when a fair amount of effort effort has been put in I honestly don’t mind.

It’s been the same on same clothes as well. Why most popular episode has gotten 67 plays in what must’ve been a spurts of activity from a couple of Twitter mentions but after that spurt had dialled off i’m looking to get about 18 plays a day.

However as an experiment to see if I can commit to something on a semi regular basis it’s been so far a success. I’m pushing out an episode if not every day, every other day and I feel like I’m finding my voice.

The podcast content is very much like this website only very much more opinionated so which I enjoy. Right now having such a small listenership figure I can pretty much be as outlandish as I like without having to care who all what I offend. Within reason

The biggest problem I have is trying to find a decent intro, stinger and audio loop. You would think that Google would supply search results are plenty but no. Again it seems to be like the black arts.
