So yeah, another one of those “big plans - this year” posts.
However, I do mean it. In fact, I have been working away in the background over the past few months to make sure that the website will be packed with all sorts of awesome content for you in 2019.
“Why the sudden burst of content, Brian? Are you not going to do what you always do - post some stuff and then disappear?” - I hear you say.
Harsh, but perhaps fair. As my career continues to develop in an exciting way, this development does take me away from doing creative stuff. I work with far more talented creatives so more than happy to let them do their thing. But I still want to have my own space to do anything creative as I would like.
I am eager to test myself to see if I can grow this blog to make some cash from it. I was once upon a time close to it with the early days of my podcast. I was averaging 15,000 - 20,000 listens per episode but unfortunately it became unsustainable.
Each episode had 3 bloggers involved - took plenty of pre-production and editing. And then I moved to London and I really needed to focus on my career in order to survive. We have somewhat survives, my current employers are extremely pro-work/life balance so I am determined to pack this website with stuff that I want to do.
I always found it really therapeutic to do stuff like this anyway. As work can be super intense at times, it can be very useful to write a blog on a trip I went on, something I am thinking of or edit a fascinating podcast.
So, upcoming podcasts for the website are;
Inside Pitcairn Island (Where a 1/3 of the population were convicted for sexual assault)
Capture The Flag: Sex for Sport
On A Mission to Visit Every Country in the World
Leaving Love to Travel
and much more.
As you can see they are travel related but I am looking to do a series on Entrepreneurs called “Decision Makers” where I shall be interviewing them on the trials and tribulations of growing a business.
I am also going to be doing my usual random interviews with fascinating people about fascinating topics.
Right, let’s get going.
