What if I were to record myself saying this stuff so you could hear my oh-so-wonderful British voice in action? Akin to a podcast.
In order to comfortably record myself reading my blog entries or just talking on-the-fly, I’d need two things: privacy and a quality condenser microphone.
Unfortunately, privacy is not something I’ll get much of until I move out of shared accommodation, so this idea isn’t something that could come to fruition just yet, but perhaps the middle of 2016. Given the nature of some of the topics I talk about on this blog, I feel privacy is absolutely a concern.
I’ve been looking into buying the Blue Microphones 2070 Yeti Blackout Tri-Capsule USB Microphone, but it isn’t cheap, at least not for my frugal arse. The microphone, as you can see if you click the link, is currently £99.99 which comes to $153.25 if you use the USD. I’d also probably need a pop filter, which would cost a further £11.99.
I’d like to know whether you think this is a good idea. Would you perhaps actually like to hear me chatting away, rather than you having to always read the text within my blog entries?
Since I’d be able to talk without reading what would essentially be a script, what sort of things, if anything, would you find interesting for me to freely talk about?
Myself, I quite like the idea of a question and answer setup; I read questions in the comment section of the previous blog entry, then answer them in the next blog entry. I’d prefer to have more readers who commented in order to not run out of questions to answer or topics to talk about as per your suggestions, so perhaps it’s just as well that this may come at a later date.
I must admit, the theme I would very much want to talk about would be what I’ve categorised as Life, in particular, mental health issues I’m familiar with, such as anxiety, OCD, and depression, and things that go on in my life.
I think it’d be good to get some feedback on this idea early, so I’ve got a plan of action, should the time come, and of course to avoid a potentially wasted investment.
