Accomplishment

So I have been basically testing the boundaries of my ability to podcast this mouth and it has been a hoot because after trying the podcast a week schedule when i first started Talk Nerdy 2 Me, I failed not all entirely my fault but i shoulder the responsibility for the cast. Now I have for the month of October undertaken 31 Podcasts in 31 Days. Its a horror movie a day and it has been rather taxing because I have continued to put out regular episodes on top of these(those some pull double duty like the Carrie episode) I also have gotten some guests on bored and have at least 2-3 more before the months is out to have on the show. This all means that we can actually finish this task and maybe come out of it with more movies than we actually intended plus network and build some relationships with other casters. It has been a blast and the regular episode format will be changing some. I am trying to get it more professional so the segment intros will return also other podcast promos in the middle or end of podcast with return. Sponsorships if any do come in for the podast in the future will come at the front of the podcast also bumpers will be used for middle of cast breaks. Bonus/Minisodes will be rather informal but will keep being numbers as they are currently with defining abbreviations depending on there purpose (ie HH for Halloween Horrorfest). last interviews I am hoping to not just keep interviews to the time after AFO each year as I would like to get Authors, Actors, Voice Actors, other Podcasters and folks into the mix as well to add to there grand total. Phew this is going to be a fun second half of the year for Talk Nerdy 2 Me I have many more lofty goals but each one comes with time and effort that i must expend and time is something we never seem to have enough of.

With all that said the idea of sponsors feels rather crazy to me because I am so not comfortable with PR, Adverts, and that sort of business dealings. I am behind the mic remember. So am so crazy nervous about attempting. Also Momma has been prodding at the idea of getting a small business license for the podcast so new equipment and travel can be written off so it’s not such an expense though that opens a whole world of things and possiblities but its hard to fathom attempting such things. Well who knows right? What the future may hold but it frightens me and excites me lol. Well I am out of here  and I hope you guys enjoy coming to sit down and talk with me and I will continue both updating and chatting and podcasting. It’s what i want to do, and passion of mine that i love so no matter how down and out i get or seem coming to this blog and spouting off about to you all and putting out a new podcast makes it better. knowing that the few of you who read this or listen to the cast enjoy it keeps me going. I thank you so much for all the support and for all the attentions and help you have given. Thank You and the bear is off to probably watch another film lol.(Hey TundraBaby Wake up!!)

OH Canad- wait….?

Yeah This guy was out and about for bit traveling the world, seeing the sights, drinking beer and eating heart warming poutine. I was in the great white north…..again(fucking alaska) but this time it was Acton, Ontario Canada to rub elbows and cupcakes with FlashPulp‘s own Skinner Co Execs and Jr. Execs. I had a blast we recorded some podcasts and those are both live a running free as well as just enjoyed one another’s company. I can’t wait to go back it was a blast. Yes there are pictures but you gets none… lol ok so you get a few they will come in another post as I don’t have the thumb stick with them on me as I am supposed to be on the road back home but a pit stop at the farm for a couple days is always a good thing. Jrd, Opop, JMay, were wonderful hosts who spent way to fucking much money on me and thus next years balticon they will get ten fold in meat i swear it.

There isn’t much difference between the two countries how ever other than the fact Canadians 1) Can’t not drive 2) are super nice about everything. Other than those two fact there basically the same. All in all in the a fun trip and its been way to fucking long since i been up north and i will definitely try to make this a yearly thing if i can because we went to a Halloween themed amusement park(Jrd stamped it when he decided we need fast lane passes for this thing.) The rollercoasters were fucking insane leviathan my hat is off to you good mechanical beast. JMay you are going in every haunted house we can find by the way next time. We also will try to make it a two day affair next time so we ca get in some of the awesome Halloween shows and events planned.

Well if you want to hear more please stop by FlashPulp for there Flash Cast Minisode featuring Me and Protector of Regina, Throat Punch Janelle. Also you can stop by Talk Nerdy 2 Me or TN2M Facebook Page and hear us go on about horror movies and how Canada invaded my podcast lol. so until next time from the Den Big Bear is out and on the road…again?(yeesh I am out of practice)

AFO, three years running!

HO ho ho, I am here and got some things to say. I know normally about this time of year i do a 3-4 post blog about AFO and all the things I will be doing from the thursday before the con(zero day) and the last(day three) but since I have got the podcast going I am con’in the girls into jumping on to the wave form and casting a show from AFO itself. I am also mid research even though this is like day before my flight. AFO this year seems to be power ranger light with anime/video game heavy guests and I honestly couldnt be happier. Also the power ranger guests are Paul Schrier and podcast friend Jason Narvy who dropped us a bumper last year. well this year I am locked and locked with camera and H2n Mic so here is hoping I get some interviews.(crosses paws)

With that said I will address what some know from following my podcast page on Facebook and my personal page I am 10 days from going back to college full time and it has been an aggravating, frustrating, and just down right miserable experience from a paperwork and money stand point but its fixed for the most part as of this posting with one a few minor deals to hash out come next week. So I am glad your all BEARing with me(see what i did there). so please please hop on over to The Talk Nerdy 2 Me Podcast to get more of me and of course my life best friend in the whole world Jen aka the TundraBaby while on the latest episodes we review The Conjuring and then make the world explode from awesome with out guests Tee Morris and his wife Philippa Ballantine.

Well I think that is all the shameless promoting and pandering for forgiveness. oh and if you feel frisky leave comments here, email me at TalkNerdy2MePodcast@Gmail.com. Also review and rate us on iTunes if you want and check out Facebook Page because at 100 likes, and so one we will do some give away of some things I have here. I also plan some random give aways as well but nothing like milestones for celebrating right? Well guys I am off to mow the lawn after I toss some cloths in to the drier then its nappy time before my last day at work. I hope to maybe see some of you at AFO. This is the Bear until next time.

Blogging and Podcasting

20120919-180739.jpgThings I have learned since starting to blog and podcast. range wildly at first glance. plus the fact it so overwhelming at first; how will you do content, what content, how often. it all wells up like some crazy flood in your brain until you feel like your going to drown. thats were the first lesson comes in to play

1) Organize what you want to do, a nd how to do it?

this basically means dont worry about the content but set up a schedule. one blog a week, one podcast a week or go bi weekly it doesn’t matter but pick something and stay with that. now that that is done the next rule is born out of circumstance.

2) can you handle what you have set to do, is it to much to start with?

this rule/question is just what it says can you keep up with your schedule and how you organized it? this is a killer once it starts going. simply because research, writing time, outlining time, editing, and working with other peoples schedules can all eat up your time and before you know it, recording or blogging day comes around and your like FUCK. this happens to be alot because I work nights so i am also tired and ready to sleep while everyone else is getting ready for the day and I have to find a way to put all this together and keep up my flow of content. sadly i am failing on my blog side of things and barely holding on with the podcast.

what is a great solution to this is having your cohosts and friends help you out. amber my cohost researches a segment called “nerdy girls corner” on her own i have no input into that other than checking things out before we record so i have some input during the show though nail polish based on doctor who is still a stretch. another thing is my new segment I turn to my boy face, his google fu is strong his internet presence in forums and such giving him great speed and skill with finding interesting articles and happenings on the web.

Now that you have organized your schedule, determined if this how things will work, gathered your companions, and content it’s time to out forth the other half of the equation. The blog, or podcast itself. Thus this next rule

3) Keep it simple

Keeping it simple includes your show or blog post and the equipment you use. For a blog it’s more or less can you cover the topics youngish to talk about or is it to hefty of a piece to cover in a sizable post. Now a podcast you need a mic and away to record to start that is it. No fancy mic, no major label recording rig just you, your cohosts and your mic. Once you get settled in and things are clicking and your schedule has worked out and your flowing with content then you can begin to put on the bells and whistles.

So remember whether its a podcast or blog:

1) Get organize
2) Recognize the amount of work and time it will take to accomplish what your trying to do, and determine if you can manage these requirements.
3) Keep It Simple

Well this is the Big Bear signing off and hoping I have given you potential casters and bloggers some help that much wiser and more experienced people gave to me. Until next time.
