To blog or record a podcast?

I’m still vexed by this question?


You might think it a pointless debate, and to an extent I’d agree with you. (What difference, after all, does it make?)


I love both.


But they’re different.


The blog -- much more precise.

The podcast/audio -- more spontaneous.


Also, the process is different. As I’ve explained here before, when I post to Livejournal (the same with Wordpress), I write to Google docs and then post here. With audio, I tend to record direct to Audioboom or Soundcloud and then share across my social media platforms. I sometimes use Audacity and then upload to either platform. (As yet I’ve not uploaded any of my content to Mixcloud, but I think that’s going to change.)

I think the only way I’ll know is to keep pushing forward, and see what happens; but any feedback you can give is much appreciated.


Anyhow, below is the first of my podcasts that I intend to record to Livejournal.

Let me know what you think.

These days I think people generally sound more authentic in podcast than blog (which seems to have a lot of spin at the moment) Julian; and while I love listening to the podcast medium, I hate the sound of my own voice! - Best RWS_01
Re: To blog or record a podcast?
Thanks Richard. I love sound, and am not worried about listening to the 'old man' speak. As a long time advocate of radio, I'm drawn to sound in a big way, much more than video. I hope one day to have something a bit more professional, but for now I'm really happy to post up a recording to any number of great audio platforms.
