I’ve wanted to start a podcast for about four years now, but, until now, I havent’ been able to come up with a good idea for content.  My area of expertise is, of course, computers and technology.  The problem though, is that there are enough technology podcasts already.  I feel that the category is saturated.

I discovered audio books this past year, and have enjoyed listening to audio books from Audible while commuting to and from work.  This gave me an idea!

I would like to produce a podcast of original short stories.

Here’s the catch: I have always been a facilitator.  I have the technical skills to produce the show, but I accept the fact that I don’t have the prolific creativity to produce enough content on my own.

Have you written any short stories?  Would you like to publish them online as an audio book?  Please let me know!!

I will be setting up a “studio” to produce the recordings.  Authors would always be welcome to read their own stories for the podcast, or I can voice the recordings myself in the studio.

I’ve known for a while now that I need to become more active in the Delaware community and begin making connections.  I’m a people person, and I’m fascinated by technology.  This combination is what drew me to amateur radio, and it is now drawing me to social networking.

Through Twitter, I have had the opportunity to interact with others in Delaware, and on Friday, met up with a few of them for lunch at El Vaquero.  It was great to finally meet in person and make some new friends.  I’m really looking forward to continuing to forge new relationships and expand my personal network within the local community.

I am also excited that I have been offered the chance to write for a new web site focusing on Delaware, Ohio.  Look for my first post over there soon!

I just updated the blogging software here at gehrisch.us.  It doesn’t look like anything broke, but if you notice anything, let me know!

It’s been too long since I’ve updated here.  I’m going to have to make some time to write more often.
