Show Notes

I've got the strangest case of deja vu. I'm recording another podcast.

iMake Podcast

Previously I hosted the iMake podcast, which was all about creative lifestyle topics such as knitting and cooking. My island home, Guernsey, was also regularly mentioned.

Last year I made the difficult decision to wind up the podcast. This was mainly because I was moving on to new things and the podcast's theme didn't fit. Time was also an issue; producing a podcast takes a lot of time.

It was a hard decision but I know it was the right one.

Missing Podcasting

But there were things about podcasting I really missed. In particular the community element.

I didn't miss the administrative elements like typing up show notes and uploading files.

What About Another Show?

A number of my iMake listeners asked me if I'd consider recording another show in the future. I said yes, if I could find a way to cut down on the time it took. The podcasting process would have to be carefully streamlined.

After a great deal of thought, I think I've found a way. I'm kicking an idea around...

An Idea

Should I create a brand new podcast about creativity, technology and small business?

Creativity and technology are two of my favourite things. Sharing my experience as a small business owner could also form a part of the show. I have recently launched a stationery subscription business called ME Box.

Like Voicemail

A short but regular podcast schedule could work. It would be a bit like me phoning you up and leaving a voice message. If I left a message on your answerphone it would be un-edited, straight to the point, relevant and personal. This could work well for both of us.

I'm not saying I am starting a new podcast, I am just thinking about it. But if I did, I'd call it Creative Me.

Surface Pattern Design

I have decided to try and re-train as a surface pattern designer and to support this aim I am studying The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design.

Creative Me

It looks like I have started a new podcast. Let's call the episode Déjà Vu. I plan to provide you with top quality, actionable content. Here's a resource for you today if you are looking for humorous business advice: The Middle Finger Project (bad language warning).


That's all from me, I hope you'll tune in next time (since there is going to be a next time!)
