Podcaster’s Block – What do you do when you don’t feel like podcasting? – PHD155

What are some things you can do when you just don’t feel like podcasting?

Here is what I do. I do more show prep.  It seems I get more motivated to podcast if I do show prep on a show I’m about to record.

Here are some other options:

  1. Delay the episode a day or two until you do feel like podcasting.
  2. Run a re-run.  If you have been at this a while and have some evergreen content, this isn’t a bad option.
  3. Never force a show.  If you don’t feel like it, it will show in the content.  It’s better to skip a show than it is to put out a crappy show.
  4. Totally skip it for this week. (or whatever your schedule is)
  5. Think about why you started this show and try to find the motivation to do it.
  6. Record a few ‘evergreen’ episodes to have some “in the can” for when you don’t want to or can’t podcast for whatever reason.
