I was on two Podcasts!
The first one was with the lovely Shana Thomas with L is for Lily and you can listen to it right here:
And the second one with Nathan Holritz on the Bokeh Podcast which you can listen to here:
I had wanted to be a guest on a Podcast for a couple years but I never thought I had anything to offer….but can I tell you, I definitely have a lot to contribute! And so do you! Everyone has a unique story and everyone has an area of expertise they can share.
When I worked in Tech Support, new people thought I knew everything because I had been there so long and it seemed like I did. I would always tell them, “Day one, you learned something that I still don’t know simply because I never got that call.” Our experiences are all so unique that we all have something to teach each other… and I love that. Don’t you? Every single person you have or will ever meet knows something you don’t. And vice versa! So if you’re in that area of “I’d love to be a guest on a Podcast but I don’t have anything to contribute,” I am here to tell you that you definitely do!
So what kind of post would this be without a “things to know” list? And because now that I’ve been on two podcasts, I’m DEFINITELY an expert now, right? 😛
BONUS: Okay, I know you don’t have to dress up for a Podcast because it’s all audio BUT maybe you’re having a hard time getting your headphones to work….and maybe you start clicking buttons on the software, and maybe you accidentally hit the video button and maybe Nathan Holritz sees you on video for a horrible moment looking like you fell off a truck and walked ten miles home in a dust storm. So maybe prepare a tiny bit just incase something crazy like that happens to you.
So what do you think? Let me know in the comments what your fave podcasts are and what your best advice for being a guest is!

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
