Why I think you should start blogging

Talking about bloggingI’ve been going on of late saying you should explore different media to get your message across. Words are all very well, but sometimes they cannot show your enthusiasm, your passion and the energy you have about your business or latest project.

Therefore I have created a series of podcasts taken from a radio interview I gave on Marlow FM a few weeks ago. Here is the first one (it’s an mp3 by the way):

Why I think you should start blogging

It’s always a shock to hear your voice, as what sounds in your head bears no resemblance to what other people hear. I’m amazed at how nasal I sound, and of course I fluff many of my words as a throwback of when I had a speech impediment. But the main thing is that I did it, and I’m not ashamed to share it with you.

Of course I don’t sound like a trained actor, because frankly having my words said by one would be boring, bland and show little meaning. This is an incident when perfection is not on the agenda. You need to listen to me, warts and all, because it is not only what I say, but how I say it.

Express your passion aurally through your blog. Recently I’ve been stepping out of my shell and started giving presentations at networking groups. This is really scary, especially for someone who prefers to sit in the shadows, but doing that won’t help my business. Therefore I have deemed it important for you to hear me as well as read the words I write.

Let me know what you think, and whether you have also gone down the road of creating podcasts and how they have worked for you.
