    Story of a man quitting podcasting - The last podcast

    This was very interesting. Im sad to hear a fellow IAIB member is leaving the world of podcasting. Donovan I can hear the sadness in your voice when recording. You are no longer in love with Podcasting and you are right, its time to move on to something else.

    Everyone who's in podcasting might want to listen to this episode, particularly the part where the "consultants" are doing harm. Building a podcasting audience is hard work. Unless you are willing to work yourself to the bone to be successful, your time might be better invested elsewhere. Even when you do a lot of things right, like Donovan, has done, there is no guarantee of success.
    Please direct all questions for me to the forum so that all can benefit.

    @Donovan. Like the others, without knowing you like they do, I hate to see you go.

    I guess it's in my blood. I think taking a break from it was a good thing. It let me readjust my expectations and also made me realize something - I podcast for me and not everyone else. If I enjoy it and feel good about the message and content that I deliver, then that's all I should need. I lost sight of that - I was trying to be...well, liked. No other way to put it. I wanted to be the "in" thing, you know? Do I still want to be liked? Sure, who doesn't? But it's not my focus any longer. Delivering something that touches even a single person makes it worth it most days.

    I still have my days where I feel like I'm wasting my time, but then I look in the mirror, and shriek in terror (kidding)...I look in the mirror and remember who I'm doing this for. Me...and those handful of people that might just appreciate it.
