I share my story of podcasting and how it enabled me to follow my dreams.
- Started listening to podcasts as soon as Apple launched iTunes 4.9.
- This Week in Tech and The Jesus Geek were first two subscriptions.
- Heard a workable model from You Suck at Web Design.
- Received “kick” from Cliff Ravenscraft and Cali Lewis to “just do it.”
- Published first episode of the Ramen Noodle on October 10, 2007
- Released only eight full episodes of the Ramen Noodle before taking it seriously in November 2009.
- Launched The Audacity to Podcast and Noodle.mx Network in June, 2010.
- In summer of 2010, decided to be full-time freelancing in one year.
- The Audacity to Podcast was featured for weeks in iTunes. Audience exploded and provided a first step toward my new dreams.
- Left my full-time job in June, 2011, to be full-time freelance web designer.
- Was invited to speak at BlogWorld and New Media Expo in New York City in spring of 2012.
