I had so much fun editing our podcast! I had no idea what I was doing, but being that I’m always up for a challenge, I Googled and found the info I needed and had a blast putting it all together!
Beckie recorded her kids and hubby doing an adorable and funny intro, and I chopped it up to a manageable length….Added my kids announcing the show and what was in the episode (and sponsor recognition at the end of the podcast)….figured out how to fade in and out our theme song…put it all together with the edited content of the actual show (lots of chopping out nervous laughter and off-topic tangents…) and wrapped it all up at the end with more music and VOILA! Our first show! Ready for publishing!
Well not entirely ready…there’s a couple minor adjustments I think I’ll do…and I still have to sort out how to do the id3 tags and insert album art and show notes and officially publish. But since we’re not going to publish until we have 3 episodes, there’s time.
But Beckie and I are already working on the plan for episode 2 and are going to try to do more recording this week. We actually are thinking we can swing it with kids here (they’ll add a bit of authenticity, yes? LOL!) and we’re feeling daring with a whole episode under our belt now. We’re raring to go!
So if we don’t have to wait til hubbies are home to watch the kids, we’ll have a much better chance of getting this done more regularly. Yay! We are having so much fun with this podcast so far, we can’t wait to share with the world! Why didn’t we think of this years ago?? Ah well…
