Introducing The ParentCast

I’ve been blogging seventeen months now & Bump, Baby & Me has really started to find its feet in the past six months. (Thank you hugely to everyone who’s read & supported the blog whether that be from day one or one week ago!)

But in January, as everyone started new linkies, or announced their blogging goals for 2015, I found myself looking for something to change things up a bit. I love blogging, I love writing, but sometimes it can feel like I’m a very small fish in a never ending ocean.

I started exploring the world of vlogging, but truth be told, it just didn’t sit well with me. Then the Other Half asked, “have you considered a podcast?”

Well, three months later & I am very excited to announce… I have a new project…IMG_0309

The ParentCast is a podcast (shock horror!) about all things parenting.

We wax lyrical about our own experiences as mums; from pregnancy to wherever we’re at in our journey as parents. We chat about the highs, the lows, the laughs – so far no tears have been recorded though I came close on Monday after we recorded our first expert interview only to find the recording equipment had failed to actually record anything…

(NB: this was rectified later in the week & we have managed to record our first interview with a child language acquisition specialist – look out for Episode 3!)

Turns out, recording a podcast isn’t that straight forward & takes patience (which I lack), a bit of technical know-how (I’m getting there) & time (not something as mums we’re in abundance of). But we’re muddling through.

The two lovely ladies I persuaded to join me in this crazy little venture are Natasha – mum to three year old ‘S.’ (read about their adventures on her blog here) – and non-blogger-technophobe Mary – mum to a three month old girl.

So as we figure out this new techie frontier (I’d just figured out WordPress!) why not lend us an ear?

    I’ll give it a go. I record a podcast of my own (nothing to do with family life!) and I’m a big podcast listener – I spend a lot of time in the car – but as far as parenting podcasts fo I only currently listen to the LoveAllDads one. Although, given how far I’m currently backed up, it will probably be 2017 before I get to it …

    Have you ever heard of serial? Its a podcast that I love and I think that this is a nice idea. I will go back when I have more time to listen. I just need to do so many things today and the laptop is a bit moody. I am so surprise that I got to open it today without glitch! Good luck with this venture =) #pocolo

    Ooo very exciting! I’m still trying to find my feet in the blogging world but would always venture into podcasts if I was to expand. Like you vlogging really doesn’t sit well with me. No idea why. Thanks for linking up with us on the #bigfatlinky
