I will not be podcasting for several months. I have had to down size my service and am at maximum file storage for another month or two. I could not afford the upgrade to the new program (It was over $300 to maintain the program I had last year and I can not see spending the money for what is a luxury but not necessity.) I understand the need for the podcast services to make money but I can not afford to continue.
The other reason I am not podcasting is lack of time. The actual recording time was about one to two hours but then I usually spent 4 to 8 hours editing. FRANKLY I would get tired of hearing my own voice and it was boring work. Time I do not have as my grandson grows older and wants more attention. Playing HEADBANZ and board games or crashing cars is my idea of fun. I also found podcasting ate into the free time I had for quilting. What a conundrum I could talk about quilting or I could quilt. With the amount of UFOs I have accumulated the answer to me is obvious… hit that sewing machine running.
I am sorry I was not able to make an announcement of the demise of the podcast. I do hope to continue with quarterly podcast once my service site gets adjusted but I do not know when that will be. I will be continue with this written blog and hope to post more often as I quilt. I see this as my quilting journal. No one in my family wants to hear about my quilting so I look to you my listeners and blog readers to converse with. Looking forward to a prolific quilting year.
