When I first started the great experiment of my BlogTalk Radio Show; Chatting With Sherri I thought it would be hard to find my guests. I really thought that would be the challenging part. I was partly right, I have a full list of guests but keeping them nice and balanced as well as keeping everyone on track is my real job of production. Writing the questions and producing the episodes holds challenges too but what I did not know was that the biggest challenge was going to be doing it all by myself.
I didn’t think much about all the work that is involved in it. I have everything written down and my calendar is set up with all the jobs I have to do for the show but I really didn’t know about it till I was in the middle of it. The thing is I am so proud of myself for simply getting it done. I have been doing it for months and to my shock people seem to love it. I have a following. Wow! What a concept. I am a producer. Who knew?
This was such a different project for me and I was not sure if I could do it. I always get nervous before a show, but the first month I was really scared. I thought I would mess up or clam up. No, I did not do either but I did have production problems I had to work through. I also have had pre-production dilemmas that I had to work out. (I am smart enough to get technical help from some special friends when I need it.) That I have been able to do it is the best part of it. It gives me confidence. (which is a really, really good thing for me)
What I have had to learn to do is balance, I need time to work on my writing, my show and other projects and make sure I get them all done. It is a one day at a time thing, but I am trekkin’ through!
This week I chatted with Quinn Barrett about her novel, Invisible Snow. It is a classic family drama about wealth, power, greed, and redemption; http://www.wisebearmedia.com/invisiblesnow/. We also had a great talk about her Indie Book awards; Wise Bear Digital Book Awards. http://www.wisebearbooks.com/awards/ . She talks about how exciting the project is and how it came about. It is an interesting and entertaining interview; http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2013/01/15/chatting-with-sherri .
She is also the person who started me thinking about being a host with Blogtalk Radio. Here is my interview with Quinn; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iq5tGrU98tM .
