Up to My Ears in Pods & Blogs

So I haven't posted here in awhile because I've been up to my ears in pods and blogs. The past two weeks I've been running around getting my own podcast and its blog set up. I'm glad to say I have been successful and I am now listed in iTunes and have a slowly growing number of listeners. Check it our if you like at Shimmy Cast.

Then I had to start going through the same process for the museum and I'm half way through with it. But needless to say I've been a little sick of computers after all of this.

I do have some thoughts on what to blog about when I get more time and I'm less sick of computers and at some point I do hope to get back into blogging more regularly.

Well, I feel I've been a bad blogger. I haven't posted in nearly a week and this after encouraging my sister to start blogging. Oh well. I do have an excuse and I think its a pretty good one.

I have started a podcast. So most of last week was spent recording, editing, starting a blog and forum board for it, and getting it submitted to various podcasting directories. I am now happy to say that it is pretty well set-up and that all I need to do is record my next episode. I know that some people have said they think that its a big commitment and it probably is, but so far the hardest part was just getting the dang thing set-up. The recording and editing was a breeze compared to the set-up! So I guess we will see how it goes.

I'm Back

So I haven't written in my blog for awhile because I've been so busy. I had a performance over the weekend and I'm trying to get the troupe website caught up as much as possible because we have another performance this weekend. Although I had a lot of problems getting the dang thing to upload.

The other major thing that is going on taking up a lot of time is that I'm starting a podcast for belly dancing. I hope to have it finished and posted by the end of the week. I have one more segment that I'm recording tonight and then I'm going to do a quick listen to see if there is any major editing things I need to do. Then the only thing left will be to set up the RSS and get it up for the people to listen to.

Needless to say that's left little time for blogging.

Recently I have decided to update my wish list since my birthday is coming up. As some of you may have noticed it is now in my links section. I actually got one of the books from my list tonight at the store. I'll start reading it soon and it will go up on the side bar there.

Also Ryan and I finally decided to get a subscription to Netflix. We've been renting DVD's of TV shows that we've wanted to see and missed from the local store and kept getting frustrated at all the disc that are so scratched we can't watch the show. I'm also looking forward to having Netflix because there are a lot of bellydance DVD's that I've thought about buying but wasn't sure I would like them so now I can check them out first. Also I love Bollywood movies, but there aren't many video stores in Arkansas that carry those types of movies and Netflix does. :-D

Blogging Problems

Well, my poor sister finally just ended up starting a new blog because she wasn't able to get any help with the one she started earlier when she couldn't get logged back into it. Luckily she has not let it stop her and she's already made two posts on one day. Yeah for her and I have to say her posts are already a ton better than mine.

This goes to show that the sister more diligent in her writing practices has the better payoff.

Lazy Hazy Days

Well, we didn't get a lot done this weekend. But that's ok since I needed to rest up for this coming weekend. Tomorrow there will be a termite inspection, a lot of laundry, and photo editing for the website. Then tomorrow night I'm meeting with another belly dancer to work on making a costume piece for her.

The rest of the week is work, work, work, dress rehearsal, work, acupuncturist, and performance. I'm hoping the rest of next weekend will be relaxing too.
