Hello, and Goodbye…I’m changing things up

Hello, and Goodbye…I’m changing things up

For years now I wanted to create something that allowed me to express my thoughts and opinions for others to listen to or watch, and maybe learn from.

I created this blog to do just that, and have loved doing it since I started it.

I’ve hit a few bumps along the way, and I’ve gotten over them and have always come back to this blog and am super grateful that I have.

Because of this blog, I have also started a Podcast about the Wheel of Time series, called The Winespring Inn.

I really enjoyed doing it at first, but it quickly became a lot of work that I couldn’t find time for and I lost interest.

It was kind of lonely doing a podcast on my own, and I am half glad half upset that I won’t be continuing with it any more.

I’m no expert on the subject matter, compared to other people, and I find myself dreading the time researching stuff to make the script.

It’s not that I don’t enjoy making a podcast, it’s just I’d prefer to focus my attention on other projects that I want to try out.

My podcasts used to come out on Saturdays, when I did post them.

Now that I won’t be continuing it, I want to start a new review series…reviewing TV shows and Movies.

I know this doesn’t really fall under the “book” category, but I think it does in the sense that it is storytelling. Movies and books are part of the same umbrella of storytelling. Movies are visual, books do the same, they just use your creativity and imagination.

The one stipulation for a movie/TV show review…it needs to be adapted from a book.

That’s how I am going to tie it into the book genre that I currently follow.

I hope you are all as excited to do the book/TV show reviews. I think it’ll be less time consuming for me, but also more fun for me and for all of you.

For the most part, I’ll try to cover modern movies that I’ve seen, but I’ll probably throw in a few classics/older movies if things slow down.

I started a podcast!

I started a podcast!

Since becoming a communications student, I have fallen in love with the idea of sharing my thoughts and opinions on different topics for everyone to see or hear.

I started this blog as an assignment, but went above and beyond what the assignment required me to do, and I have now taken to keep updating the blog, even after school has ended for the year.

It’s a lot of fun. I like sharing my thoughts and opinions, and in doing so, I have had so many great discussions about books, movies or TV shows, and I wanted to keep doing it.

I have my opinions on things, but so often, I find my opinions being influenced by other people’s when I discuss it with them, or other people have an opinion that I had no idea about. Hearing other people’s opinions is something I enjoy doing, and I thought giving my opinion might help other people.

That’s why I wanted to start a podcast.

Podcasting seems like the perfect platform to discuss a certain topic, and the idea of starting one has interested me even before becoming a communications student.

I haven’t released any episodes yet, but I have recorded a few. They’re not great, but they’re a good stepping stone to be sure, and I hope to keep making better content for any listeners that I might have in the future.

The podcast is called The Winespring Inn, and it is about The Wheel of Time. I love the books, and since the books are being adapted into a TV show, I figured it would be good subject matter to start talking about.

Currently, it’s just me, myself, and I, which kind of sucks, because I would like a partner to talk to on the Podcast, but I’m okay with going solo.

I’m going to try to get episodes out every week, but I’m not going to promise that because who knows? I might be busy.

The idea of the podcast will be more of a discussion/encyclopedia type. I’ll discuss certain topics, but also give a sort of encyclopedia entry on different aspects of the series. Whether it is locations, people, weapons, or various other things, The Wheel of Time is a massive book series, and it can be pretty confusing.

But yeah! I started a podcast, and I am pretty excited about it. Look out for it this weekend!
