Another Brilliant Idea!
So, I decided to start my own podcast, or video-podcast, or interview thingy on FaceBook. I’m not quite sure what to call it and no one has been able to provide me with an adequate name for it, but there you go. I think I got the idea because no one with a reputable podcast wanted to interview me. I couldn’t blame them since I’m a first-time author, but I did. After all, I’m a pretty interesting guy. Modest too.
I had initially thought I would interview guys from prison and that I’d done time with. Turned out that not everyone was excited to talk about having been in prison. That’s because some have put it behind them and others don’t want people to know they did time. Understandable, but it did rather limit my guest selection.
I then thought I would interview other authors. That has potential, but I was concerned that since I didn’t understand their genres, like romance novels or young adult fiction, that I would be limited to memoir writers. Then I realized most of the people I see doing interviews on TV news don’t seem to have a clue about what they’re talking about either. That opened the door for me to jump in as well!
Then I had a brilliant idea! What if I scrolled through my Face Book feed and selected people that I thought would be interesting. You know, the ones with a lot to say, or trying to run a business from there. The options then became limitless!
The question then became: But will they agree to be interviewed?
Well, we’re about to find out!
I have no idea where this is going to go. I like that too.
What could possibly go wrong?
