How do you feel about listening to an old man Blather on? Welcome to JohnHQLD’s Blatherings!
So what is this menu item? Blatherings. It’s hiding under Shenanigans. This is where a new item to be called JohnHQLD’s Blatherings will be living. But Blatherings is also a project that I would like to build with all of you.
I prefer reading a lot of my information, but I also use audio as a great way to multitask hence the idea of starting a podcast – a way to tackle the topics that are just too long for a quick read, while opening up a channel to other people. This will be a fortnightly podcast (at the moment) about things I have been doing, thinking about, just stuff in general. There will be thoughts on gaming, films, TV, life in general, a lot of things really. Initially, there really isn’t a set format, it’s just what I am thinking about and a chance for me to just let it all come forth. Can you guess how I came up with the name? :p I think JohnHQLD’s Blatherings is quite descriptive.
A good example for people that have been following the Facebook page was a little piece on how I missed completely Star Trek Beyond. It had a little Last Jedi sure, but that’s not what it was about. It was me leading into a thought, one which I am yet to finish. Little spoiler – I watched Star Trek Beyond that night, so I have opinions now 🙂
While I said mainly what I wanted as a starter, there are more points I want to talk about especially as a follow-up. That would probably be about a half hours reading give or take, and that’s a lot of time for people. But maybe a 10-15 minute audio clip? I know which I would prefer to listen to under the circumstances. And so, the idea for JohnHQLD’s Blatherings started to form.
Obviously, the first few episodes will be me finding my feet and have different structures and topics. However, I said I would love this to be a group project, and that is true. Feedback, questions, topic suggestions, all will be taken on board and hopefully we can make something for all of us.
Join me on the 12th of February for the launch of this new experiment, and see where it will take us!
I hope you’re enjoying the site, and I have a couple more announcements coming.
Until next time,
