30 Podcast Episodes in 30 Days
Want to challenge yourself in November? NaPodPoMo is a great way to:
test new podcast ideas
test new segments
improve your hosting
You show up daily for 30 days, making a new episode each day. It doesn't have to be fancy – maybe it's you just getting behind the mic and working on hosting skills, such as vocal inflection or (lack of) filler words.
This is actually how I started my podcast, Build a Big Podcast. I had no plans of doing a podcast on podcasting, but needed a topic to use for NaPodPoMo ... and kept going after it was over.
Is it "too much" at times? It can be. I've completed it three times and my advice is to keep things simple. Yeah, you want to get better, but "better" happens in steps, not all at once. And if you stop in the middle, you'll never get there.
If you’re looking for a way to get better at hosting, it’s a good opportunity to join together with other people looking to do the same thing.
