Ghent Vacations: Ghent in Audio:

Podcast #1 testing!  1..2..3.. Please feel free to leave your suggestions. I am trying something new :-). This is a companion piece if you will to the Ghent post. I have long thought about podcasts, as well doing some video posts.  I have put it on the back burner for a while as we moved. Now, we are a little more settled and so, l am gingerly dipping my toes into a new area. We’ll see how it pans out. I haven’t checked out any other travel podcasts, or podcasts in general. I did not want to get influenced by what’s out there. I am just going to fly by the seat of my pants as usual :-). This being my freshman trial. I am eager to see what you think, and would appreciate honest feedback, like does it show in a “feed”? etc.. It might help future productions.

  1. Hi Kemkem,
    Congratulations on your maiden podcast journey. I found it very interesting and I came away with a good sense of Ghent. Colin Farrell, get over there 😉 . You sound natural, at ease and very candid. I was just thinking that guests would be a nice addition, but you beat me to it ! Well done.

    • Thank you!I really appreciate the input.There is still a lot to learn, but l am up for it, l think. I definitely plan on having guests. I always think it’s interesting to get peoples take on their travels. I just keep thinking how much Colin Farrell hated Ghent in the movie.hah hah! Thanks for the comment. 🙂

  2. I think that listening to a podcast is a nice change. It’s my first podcast that I have listened to, so I am not an expert, but I like the fact that you can listen to it in the background while doing other stuff and that the quantity of information clearly beats the one in a regular article.

    I am using an online feed reader and it does show in the feed, you can listen to it from there as well. The only thing that could be better is the microphone, I guess, but that’s probably a plan for the future when you have a few thousand listeners. Right now, it works well with it too!

    • I didn’t even think about the fact that you can listen to it at your own pace, and you’re right about the quantity, for instance, on the blog, l might touch on one of the restaurants, but it’s nice to be able to mention my favorites that l remember. It’s a lot more information. Thanks for letting me know about the feed thing. I was able to add it to feedburner, but l am stumped on the itunes (for now). I am currently reading up on good microphones for when l get listeners…In the meantime, get ready as l intend on having you on the show with me after your epic journey. That is of course, l can figure out how to add Skype or something into the mix 🙂

  4. Great job, Kemkem! Your voice is so soothing – I really like your podcast. I echo the comments about the mic, but apart from that, you’ve offered some really great advice/tips about Ghent and now I really, really want to go! I listen to a lot of podcasts (mostly biz-related) and it’s something that I’ve been thinking about implementing as well for my biz. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Thanks Dana. I am going to do something about the microphone for sure. Just trying some knobs and such, l was able to get a better vocal thingie that already sounds better :-), and l found an old headphone/mic combo from my old dictation software that helps..slowly but surely, l will get there. It was kind of fun to do, and l think you should add it to your arsenal. This is the first time l have heard my voice described as soothing.. :-). Harsh, grating…etc..yes..hah hah 🙂

  5. This is so cool. You sound so professional and even though we HAVE actually met, you’ve got a really nice “radio” voice. You sound reassuring and chatty and I would go wherever you sent me! Well done babe. 🙂

    • Thanks :-). Get ready, once l have my microphone and a bit more knowledge, l am bugging you for an interview. Convince me to visit Berlin again..lol! As if l need any more convincing..hah hah!
