Ready to Rumble.

The last week has been pretty much taken up learning as much as I could learn about podcasting. I feel the podcasting craze is real and just like YouTube and Facebook before it, we will see an increase in the number of people podcasting and as the applications to listen to them get easier, more people will be listening.
Time is our greatest asset and where video and reading are popular, we can't do those things when engaged in other pursuits such as working out or driving. But podcasts can be listened to really anywhere and anytime with the addition of a pair of headphones. 
I made my podcast like at the start of the week and I set myself a target of having 10 episodes up before I went away later today. I currently stand at 9 and once this blog is posted I will be recording episode 10 and then my goal is complete.
Seven days ago I had a very basic setup for the podcasting but in typical Gareth style, I had to get some more tech this week to complete my studio. I know I am a big kid but I still get excited about new "Boys Toys" and do believe we should always use the best equipment available to us.
So now I have enough tech and equipment to make a small radio station envious and all I need to do now is produce content. 
I return home from a short break on Monday and that will mark the start of my real journey into growing my "Taking CARE of Yourself" brand. Lots to do and all of it exciting so I am officially ready to rumble...Let's do this.


Time to share the CARE

On the 20th of July 2018, I celebrated 4 years since I stopped drinking.
Although I always judge my sobriety on quality, not quantity I still like to take the 20th of Julys since 2014 as a day to reflect. I look back at the previous twelve months and what has changed in my life and how I have changed in key areas. This year was no exception.
Durning this years time of reflection I was aware of how my knowledge of online platforms has improved. I have become quite a dab hand at building websites, creating videos and producing content. But something was missing and that was producing content about my CARE system.
In truth, I have been taking it easy and concentrating more on the methods to create content that actually creating the content itself. 
So my focus for this next 12 months is to use my website, facebook, social media and now a brand new podcast to share my CARE system with the world.
I will blog occasionally and as and when it feels right because I want to concentrate on blogging as my primary method of delivering my message.
So I suppose this blog marks the start of a new and exciting journey and one that I am well up for.

Take Care
