Podcasts are definitely a current obsession of mine; they keep me company (and motivated) in the gym, they pass the time on long journeys and they stimulate my brain when I’ve got a tonne of mind-numbing photos to take. I adore the way you can discover new ways of thinking, listen to incredible stories and hone a skillset just by plugging in your earphones. I’m always looking out for new recommendations and searching the iTunes store for inspiration – so much so that I decided to create and launch my own. Yep, that’s right: I’m today launching my very own podcast! (Can I get a whoop whoop?) Simply called ‘Made Online’, the podcast will share inspirational stories from those that have made their career, brand, business or life changing moment online – whether that’s being discovered, making connections, finding a skillset or launching a business. It aims to inspire and motivate, as well as telling some fascinating stories that I know you’ll love hearing about as much as me.
Over the coming weeks I’ve got some incredible people lined up – including social media stars, blogging queens, hugely successful businesswomen, digital entrepreneurs and those that have generally found that the internet has changed their life in one way or another. I’m so stocked that so many people have agreed to talk to me, and I can’t wait for you to listen. Right now in the iTunes Store you can listen to the teaser episode, which is my own story of how I was Made Online (it explains why I find the concept of creating or finding your fortune online so fascinating,) as well as episode one. What better way to kick off the series than with a blogging icon: Jane Cunningham from British Beauty Blogger.
If you don’t know her (and I’m sure you do!) Jane is one of the biggest and most respected beauty bloggers in the UK.
Known for her no-holds barred approach, Jane has been at the forefront
of the bloggersphere and an early adopter of many social media
platforms, as well as a champion of older women across the beauty and
digital industry. We chat about her journey into blogging a decade ago
from traditional journalism, how she launched her best selling makeup
palette, the future of magazines, the challenges bloggers face, the
difference between digital natives and an older generation of internet
users, how the internet has revolutionised the way we buy our beauty
products and much more. I’m thoroughly pleased she agreed to be part of the first episode and help me break my podcasting virginity!
It’s really exciting to try something new and I’m thrilled to be able to bring you some fab stories in the coming weeks. Please bear with me while I find my editing and broadcasting feet (it’s a totally new skillset!) and hone my skills (I’m yet to get to grips with staying in one position so the sound level is consistent, ooops!) But I hope you enjoy episode one and join me on this new journey.
