Podcast Addicted: Homeschool Snapshots Guest
I'm so excited to share this, today!
When I wrote the first post in the series, I just intended to write about my ever-expanding list of favorite podcasts. In my first real review, I wrote that The Homeschool Snapshots Podcast was my favorite.
When Pam found out that April 20 (tomorrow!) was my 15th year of blogging and that I wanted to do something special to celebrate that milestone and she invited me to be on the show.
What a fun way to celebrate!
I have enjoyed writing this series about my love of podcasts. It's fun to hear the finished piece, to learn from the interviewees, and think about how I'd answer the questions. When I first started listening, I never imagined I'd be a guest on one. The background process is so fascinating. Questions, setting up and conducting the interview - in the beginning of March (I'm so bad at sitting on my fingers and not sharing!), waiting for all the background editing and production that goes into it. I'd be happy to have done it just for that experience. To see (hear?) - experience - what my favorite podcasters go through to produce such work.
But, really, the best part of the experience was talking with Pam. My friend. We had a wonderful conversation. She drew things out that I hadn't thought directly about, her questions are so good. In fact, I talked so much that I didn't use all the notes I prepared ahead of time for her questions. Now I have some blog fodder. Maybe that's what my blog needs ... someone to just ask me a question so I can ramble on about what I think.
In my episode of Homeschool Snapshots, we talked about my homeschool experience, my blogging experience, and the true friendships which have built out of it - some from since the early days of blogging. 15 years ago. Yikes!
I'm so happy to share it with you, I hope you are edified and encouraged and enjoy our conversation.
