In the three months I’ve been with BlogTalkRadio one thing I’ve wanted to do but haven’t yet had a chance, is learn how to host my own program. You see, in addition to working full time as BlogTalkRadio’s Community Manager, I moonlight with a personal project – my Freelance Writing Jobs blog – which happens to be the number one online community for freelance Writers. Even before I accepted the gig with BlogTalkRadio I had thoughts of bringing my community even closer together with a weekly radio show. I was a little intimidated though. Me? Host a radio show? Did I mention I’m technically challenged?
Yesterday I had the pleasure of sitting in on a training session with BlogTalkRadio’s Host Support team member, Christie Sweet. Any fears or nervousness were immediately put to rest as soon as I heard Christie’s voice. Not only does she know her stuff, but she’s patient, kind and makes it look so easy.
If you ever thought about hosting your own BlogTalkRadio show but felt a little intimidated because you’re like me and not very technical, let me ease your mind. The BlogTalkRadio Host Support Team is amazing. In addition to training sessions, they’re always here to answer your questions and help make your BlogTalkRadio experience pleasant and user friendly. Hosting an online radio show should be fun and entertaining, so it only makes sense the initial training session is a positive experience. I’d like to thank Christie for letting me sit in yesterday and convincing me that I too can become a BlogTalkRadio host. And trust me, if I can do it…so can you!
