If I Had the Guts

I am at a loss for words today. I’ve been up since 4:30 AM and started my day in my cold, dark backyard trying to get a urine sample from my dog for the vet. The day has to only go up from there, right?

While watching speed skating with plenty of falls and penalties, I also spent time looking at Tik Tok. I decided I would write about other things I would do online besides writing if I had the talent and/or nerve to do it.

Tik Tok

There is such a thing as #booktok where people do book reviews and suggestions on Tik Tok. Occasionally, I think “I could do that” and then I remember how bad I am on video. I would never be able to watch my videos to edit or anything because I hate seeing myself recorded.

I could also record some of the dumb jokes I send to my siblings. That sort of thing seems popular.


Same thing, but with the option to talk longer and about more than one book at a time. I could also do TV reviews and news. Or rants.


I played around with Anchor when it was connected to WordPress and then stopped. I talk too fast and get too nervous to do this type of thing alone. I have always thought a podcast with my and my brother talking(arguing) about sports and other things would work well. I don’t see him ever doing such a thing.

None of that would make me any money so I’m not sure why I would ever even consider it in the first place. I guess it is that part of me that wants to be a little famous in some way.

  1. I can relate to all of this.
    If you want to start a podcast, I think you should do it. I started one last year because LA inspired me. I usually tell (my very few listeners) if I can record a podcast anyone can. It’s been one of the most therapeutic things I’ve done for myself.
