When I restarted this blog at the beginning of the year I had intended to use this as a personal blog as well as kicking off the podcast properly. As you will plainly be able to see by the fact that the whole homepage is filled with only the weekly podcast posts, that has kinda taken a backfoot over time.
So today I have decided to take the time to make a personal blog post and to give me a little bit of a push i am using a trick I saw on Lifehacker a while back. Using a program called focus booster I am writing this post with a 25 minute timer ticking away, whatever is written by the end of that timer is what my post will be.
Why, you may ask, would I want to do that? well for one simple reason only – If I can output one coherent post in 25 minutes then I have no reason to not do so more regularly in the future. 25 minutes is not too much time to put aside in an evening.
So, when coming up with a topic for this first attempt at this posting trial I was left with one key thing in mind and that was the podcast. Now as well as recording the weekly podcast I actually listen to quite a few, so today im going to give you a brief overview of some of the ones I listen too regularly. (more…)
