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?”
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?
