My First Year of Podcasting: Five Helpful Lessons Learned

The SLP Happy Hour podcast is just about one year old.

I remember my ideas about podcasting before I started: I’ll be more visable online (I was a bit nervous about that part), I’m not sure if anyone will listen, it sounds like hard work, I know the podcast won’t be for everyone…

For me a bit part of getting things started was just going for it. Did I know how it was going to turn out? Absolutely not! But I’ve absolutely enjoyed the process.
As I reflect on my first year podcasting, I wanted to write some of my thoughts about the process and what I’ve learned. I hope this helps you get a peek into what podcasting is really like, as well as some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

The 5 Most Common Podcasting Mistakes - And How to Avoid Them

There are a lot of great podcasts out there.

I love podcasts, and recently subscribed to more than 30 of them - until podcasts were taking up all of my phone memory and I had to cull my collection. It was mandatory, since my phone stopped actually working because its memory was so overloaded with podcast episodes. I still subscribe to more than 15, and my phone is in working order again, thankfully.  

As I've listened to podcasts, and created my own podcast, I've learned a lot about what makes a podcast easy (and enjoyable) to listen to, and what has me hitting the unsubscribe button.

I'll outline the five most common podcast mistakes here, with suggestions of what you can do to avoid them.  Some of these mistakes I've learned from personal experience, and some I've heard other podcasters make. Whether you have a podcast, are thinking about it, or are just interested in podcasting - this post is all about how to create an easy-to-listen-to podcast, and your listeners will thank you later for making their experience more enjoyable.

5 Most Common Telepractice Questions Answered!

Are you interested in working within the telepractice setting? Would you like to dip your toes in the water a bit and learn more?

Telepractice has, for me, been a game changer as far as my career is concerned. It's been a great fit for me moving away from being a school employee and having the opportunity to still work for schools (which I love) with more freedom and independence than I had before.

Maybe telepractice could be a game changer for you, too?
