Express Yourself

It has been one of those weeks where I sit down to write and spend a lot of time writing titles and then deleting them when I realize I don’t really want to write that post. I have fragments of ideas floating around in my head, but I can’t seem to get the words out.

Sometimes I have a blog post in my head as I’m walking or driving, but can’t get it right when I try to write it.

In therapy this week I was asked if I ever consider podcasting. I mentioned the attempt at podcasting I did on Anchor connected to the blog and how I didn’t like the sound of my voice. I talked about how I think I would be better in a situation where the podcast was something like me arguing with my brother about stuff. I don’t think I could convince him to do it.

We talked about video. I also don’t like the way I look in pictures or videos. But, I think there are some things that would work better on video. Short book reviews on Tik Tok, rants, etc. It was suggested I do a few videos knowing I never have to share them anywhere to see how it feels. I should have done that yesterday when I was home alone.

There are many ways to express yourself. I have generally done it through writing, but I think maybe I should consider branching out to see how it goes.

  1. A fellow blogger of mine and I joined forces once to do something sports-related for his site’s podcast. I enjoyed it a lot – it was a good experience. I wouldn’t have an issue doing a video, but for me I like the freedom of being able to just focus in on what I am saying and how I am using my voice, and not having to worry about the additional piece of how I appear at any given time. You should definitely work with both audio and video on your own, and then decide what you like more.

  2. Is there anybody else you could do a podcast with, if you don’t think you can convince your brother to do it with you? Like you, I find my voice not something I want to hear. I’m too self-conscious to try video myself, but you should give it a try. Nothing ventured, nothing gained (to be trite).
