You gotta push the button

“Failure is Always an Option” – Adam Savage Well it finally happened. I’ve had scares before where I didn’t think I recorded an interview, but it turned out I had but at a really low volume.  Thank you Anjie for making that listenable. But yesterday, yesterday I bit the big one. I had a fabulous interview with Todd Cochrane the CEO of Blubrry who happens to be my podcast hosting provider and a sponsor of this show!  I did my research had my questions ready and we were off.  Todd is an experience interviewee.  He has great stories.  We discussed[…]

Thankful

Hey guys I want to share with you a big reason why The I’ve Been Wrong Before Podcast got off the ground. Anjie Furian Seriously that’s the big reason right there.  I got everything together for the podcast and got my first couple of interviews recorded. But the editing is when I ran into issues that I had no familiarity with.  My wonderful wife asked if she could help.  I was leery.  Not because I didn’t think she could do it but because I didn’t want to rope her into something that I viewed as a long term project and[…]

I’ve Been Wrong Before

So I started a podcast. I’ve wanted to do a podcast for a while but had just dreamed about doing it.  So how did I go from dreaming to doing? I’ve blogged on and off since 2001 on various platforms from LiveJournal to my own website to WordPress. I’ve written stories for fun since I was in kindergarten. My fiction has ranged from good to horrible to porn to romance to science fiction. I tried a little writing for a friend that was making a comic book and discovered that I don’t appreciate the art of the graphic novel enough[…]

Irritated not Intimidated

I’m not a person to be intimidated by technology.  I am also a fan of clear instructions and well documented features.  Lately I’ve been struggling with the “helpfulness” of website templates.  Yes, I get that templates make it Very easy for hosting providers to have something ready made for customers.  However, when the template is not well documented as to where it pulls info from it becomes a REAL FUCKING headache.  I know. Let me repeat that. I KNOW what the information is that I want a particular part of the template to have.  I understand that I need to[…]

From one ex-ex-gay to another

Coming out as an ex-ex-gay is a little different that coming out as gay.  For a long time, your nearest and dearest have known about your struggle with “same sex attraction”.  But you fought it! You Wanted to be straight.  That made you the acceptable kind of gay. It made you ex-gay. It didn’t matter that it meant denying who you really were or that there was constant tension and stress that colored every decision you made.  The Mainstream society you lived in thought you wanted to be just like them, so you were loved and pitied and supported. You[…]

little vs long

I am discovering that most of the stories I want to tell are longer than I have time to write in one day. This is conflicting greatly with my desire to post something every day. So I either need to break up the stories into sections, which I’ve done for a couple of posts, or I need to figure out how to be more concise. I am not a concise person when it comes to writing stories. So what to do? Abandon my posting every day? Increase  my time writing? Unfortunately I don’t have a ton of more time in[…]
