    Introducing our new local podcast for Richardson, Texas (Behind the Scenes: Part 6)

    Introducing our new local podcast for Richardson, Texas (Behind the Scenes: Part 6)

    Wow! A lot has happened between publishing this episode of Podcast Local and episode one of our local podcast. I must tell that story soon on an revived version of Podcast Local.







    Feel free to listen to this, but here's a brief back story. This was the only episode we published as OnTheGo in Richardson. Just one. Then "life" happened in a big way. We were not able to continue with this show.







    Until now!







    The first episode of our new local podcast for Richardson, Texas is available now at ThisIsRichardson.com.







    For those interested in the technical stuff, we decided to try out the new Captivate.FM. It's a new media host that has a lot going for it. And since we needed new media hosting anyway for the local podcast, we decided to give it a try.







    If you'd like to check it out, here is our affiliate link for Captivate.FM. We get a small commission if you decide to sign up with them. However, if you'd like to check them out without giving us a commission, you can use this link instead. Either way is fine. I just wanted to let you know about them.







    So, feel free to listen to the episode below if you'd like to hear how things were going a couple of years ago. We will probably use this episode about the library again on the new This is Richardson soon.





    The "behind the scenes" season comes to a close, and the new local podcast for Richardson, Texas is revealed on this episode of Podcast Local from OnTheGo.FM

    Sometimes you really do need to think outside the box.

    The box can be:



    limitations that are not helpful.

    limiting beliefs within you that keep you from doing something

    fears: fear of failure or fear of embarrassment if you fail

    lack of knowledge

    discouragement



    Thinking outside the box is learning to explore possibilities optimistically, believing there are answers, there are solutions, and you can discover those if you keep looking for them.

    Brainstorming

    The key to brainstorming is idea generation. Lots of ideas! More than that!

    What are your creative (de)limitations?

Amazing Help for Local Podcasters

Jason hosts a professionally-produced podcast about hosting and producing local podcasts. It's meta, but its also amazing. It helped us launch our own podcast and I will recommend it to anyone intersted in blogging, blogging, or podcasting about their community.
