As you could probably tell from the intro and outro of the last episode…I was pretty sick on Tuesday. And…I forgot to make this post.
Because everything sucked.
Anyway, I’m doing much, much better now, almost back at 100% but it’s close enough to handwave.
Good News: I got the JNJ shot, all in one COVID-19 vaccination. The bad news…it…ah…it took me out, man. It really frickin’ SUCKS. If you can I suggest you take the next day or two after you get the vaccine off. If you can’t I suggest bringing some motrin and potentially an allergy pill or whatever to stop the runny nose. It’s going to suck regardless, but I think it would suck less if you don’t feel a full on achy, phlegmy mess.
It seems that I’ve been gaining traction recently and if I’m super lucky, I’ll get 10,000 downloads some time this week…and then…my life will abruptly lose all meaning…what am I to do now that I’ve gotten all the stickers??
Make my own?!
…make my own…?
…make my own…
BTW networking is super important in the podcast community. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this, but I got into a group discord that shares advice and stuff and they have some heavy hitters and ALL THOSE TIMES I WAS ASKING FOR SOUND DESIGN HELP, if I’d had access to them, life would have been so much easier.
But I also wouldn’t have struggled half as much…or experimented quite as thoroughly…qui sera sera, I guess.
The way I finally got access to it was…by volunteering at another podcast, writing a few episodes and I think the lead writer took a liking to my show. So…it doesn’t all have to be social media (which is still…SUCH a hellscape), but it has to be something. Like people out there gotta know you exist…somehow…
