Success! My podcast show is now live!
This post is a status update from where I left off last with you all at https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/matthewr/blog/how-...
I am here to tell you that the long-awaited journey has finally arrived....thank you God! :)
Today, after a lot of hard work...my podcast is now live! It has been quite an interesting journey and I'm not quite sure what God has been showing me through it all.
What held me back most? Technical difficulties...
Needless to say, I actually had an easier time recording, editing, and finalizing my podcast in garageband and learning about that world than getting it live and officially launching the show on my site.
The reason for this is because I followed Pat Flynn's instructions on how to get my podcast up and running, but when I got to the part where I am supposed to insert the "media URL" link into Powerpress (through Wordpress)...it kept giving me error messages.
When I say interesting journey I mean really interesting. Here I am with the final product edited and complete (which was a lot of hard work over time, especially since I had to learn everything from scratch.) and the inability to upload to my site.
This went on for about a week and a half, almost two weeks I believe.
It felt like an eternity and actually earlier this weekend I got more frustrated and mad than I think I have ever been in the last 5 years of my life.
Now, keep in mind I didn't rage or anything. Since I have become a Christian...love, patience, and peace have filled those anger gaps in my life. And even before that, I considered myself a pretty easy-going person.
So I called up one of my Brothers in Christ and did a screen share with him and he admits to not really doing much but I still thanked him immensely.
The simple fact that I could show someone my struggle and talk through it out loud was therapeutic in its own right.
So the solution? my brother Brian simply suggested that I try uploading anyways despite that the link did not verify and came back with an error message.
AKA do the same thing you've been doing but follow through into the next step regardless of what the error message is telling you.
POOF! Sure enough it worked just like that. Was I upset at this point? Not at all, I was so relieved and thankful to God that I got it up and running finally this weekend :)
When I look back on how angry I got, I can laugh about it and know that God is smirking and had a lesson in it for me after all.
