5 Reasons Why I Blog

Ichiena the funny one decided to challenge me by tagging me to do a podcast on 5 reasons why I blog. I Fond this extremely difficult cos 1. I thought I blogged for no reason at all, just cos I can really and 2. I didn't even know how to start in uploading a podcast. Being a fella who thrives on challenges I thought I should at least give it a go and since I google everything it was not long before I had completed Podcasting 101 and I believe now I am ready to post my premiere podcast. Although I won't make a habit of it (too much like work!) I enjoyed making it and maybe if you ask enough I will do some more.
I used a background of images from Embu where I live for the Video so that some of you can get a perspective of where I am coming from. As I listened to myself I realise I still have a sligth stutter I hope you will forgive me for that but those who know me can tell that my stammering has improved a whole lot since them days.
Otherwise ji-enjoy.

Nice podcast with a video of hazards - I have lost count of the number of trees even on the drive/avenue/entrance. I can see why your car likes trees. Irresistable.

Once I get the tools I will also do my own podcast. Google is also my big friend.

Dshy said...

Brilliant podcast. I love the countryside, and the images left me feeling homesick. But still, that didnt dampen my mood too much and I still enjoyed the podcast.
