How do we feel about podcasts?

I use WordPress to operate my blog. When I first started doing this about six years ago, I initially went with a different blogging website; Blogger. I used it for a few weeks, though realized that its intricacies and glitches weren’t for me, and after doing a little bit of research to determine the best blogging platform available, I came to the realization that WordPress was the one to go with.

Here we are, years later, still using it.

WordPress is always offering new prompts, extensions, and other features to us folks who operate a website from it, and every now and then, a relatively neat one comes along. I’ve been eyeing one in particular for a while now, powered via Anchor, but I wasn’t exactly sure how I felt about it.

A few nights ago, I bit the bullet and enabled my blog, ontheedgeofeverything.com, to be available via podcasts.

I will admit that this feature makes me feel so much fucking cooler than I really am. I feel like I needed to share that with all of you.

I have the option to convert my blog posts into short podcasts using an automated voice, or my own. I opted for my own as I think it would be illogical to have a robot read my shit aloud to someone. Recording my own posts with my own voice seems like the better route to take, and it adds an essence of authenticity, which is a good thing, I think.

Allow me to stipulate that I have recently exceeded 2,000 posts that I have composed over the years. They aren’t lengthy for multiple reasons, and this will arguably work in my favour if I’m going to record all 2,049 of them, and then some. I do ask for your patience, however, as I’m really not entirely sure when I will be able to record each and every one of these puppies. I’m planning on working my way towards current posts, beginning with ones I wrote roughly five-and-a-half years ago.

These podcasts will be available Spotify, Anchor, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Overcast, Amazon Music, Castbox, Pocket Casts, RadioPublic and Stitcher.
