Bringing on the Blah | Blah Blah Land Podcast

A Little bit about Bring on the Blah with the "Blah Blah Land" Podcast #Bringontheblah

What is Bring on the Blah anyway?

I remember about 8 years ago, I started the whole #NOTlistening world (well the ODDcast PODcast world as it started) as a place to podcast and "be funny" with my mates. I started it all as a way to drink beer and chat "shit" whilst being ultra edgy.........Something I regret listening back to some of the stuff that we tried to discuss. All this was done during my late 20's and during a time when I wasn't exactly in the greatest of headspaces as it was. I was struggling with my mental health and I didn't even realise.

The Podcast actually helped me, to a point, where I was able to spend time with my friends and meet new people, but it also led to a deeper issue where I became pressured to deliver, to be funny and to create something that wouldn't get badly critiqued.......It did! quite a few times and I don't blame them to be fair.
Anyway, Along with the who #NOTlistening world, which has blossomed and found it's voice over the years, I tired my hand at blogging and trying to be edgy and controversial with that.......again some of the stuff I wrote I look back and "sigh" and also it led me down a path that opened me up to a perception I wasn't happy with..........I am blabbing right now, I will get to the point of this post soon, trust me.

So after several years of growth and self - development I started to find my feet again and where I wanted to go with any of my creative endeavours. During my podcasting days I managed to interview and talk to some bloody interesting people, people that I enjoyed talking to and hearing what they had to say! This was something I wanted to do more of.
So in 2019 I came up with the idea of a podcast that wasn't for the "laughs" it was a passion project for me to sit down and chat with people I find interesting. People I look up to. People that I believe to empower and inspire people. I wanted to do a podcast where I felt the positivity and happiness from their life and attitude. I created the Podcast "Blah Blah Land"

The Podcast is still new and very raw, but 2020 I have more ideas and people lined up to chat to. These people don't have to be big name celebs, these are every day people living their best life. These people have something to say and if it can reach a small handful of people then I am extremely happy with that.
This Podcast wasn't created as a ratings, hits and downloads winner. if that happened, bonus, but I didn't want to fall back into the pressure of trying to be a podcast that fought for listeners. This was my passion project that I can do "my thing" and indulge in others happiness.
