The other day, I came up with what I think is a brilliant idea! That idea is to interview other green and sustainable blogger or guests via Skype and put it up on my podcast.
Now the main reason behind this was that I believe that blogging is a very quiet practice, and I thought it would be nice to hear the voices of other bloggers and see what they had to say for themselves during an interview.
I had to start somewhere, so I approached my good friend Kate who lives in Cygnet, Tasmania and is the owner of the blog titled Vegetable Vagabond. The interview was wonderful, and Kate talks to me about all the great things she has been getting up to in the last few months. From gardening to berries, from apples to the Gourmet Farmer!
If you enjoyed the podcast, please pop over to iTunes and rate it and leave a review. You can also do the same within Stitcher Radio if you use that service. It would help me out so much, and elevate the ratings so that others can find out about the podcast and learn about sustainable living in the ‘burbs.
You can subscribe to the show via RSS or iTunes or Stitcher for your portable device. Just use the subscription buttons below.
Until next time, stay green and keep keen!
Thats a great idea I would love to hear from others. Thanks to your blog I was able to convince my hubby to get solar power. WE have paided the deposit and soon hopefully we will be able to run on the sun. He used to listen to the poo pooers but I showed him your blog and how its worked for you. heheh
Thanks Gavin…. you did a great job of the editing!! I so look forward to hearing from other bloggers now.
Time to go and hang out my OPEN sign for another day’s business at The Garden Shed…. I wonder who will drop by today.
I enjoyed the pod cast with my husband this morning. We are Tasmanians (live in Launceston) and it was lovely to “meet” Kate and hear about the community in Cygnet. We have remarked each time we have been through Cygnet, how beautiful it is and how prosperous the school looks, signs of a healthy community.
We laughed about her tales of the close family relationships towards the end of the interview. When you said “any Tasmanias listening, I love you all”, my husband said great we need some outside loving! Gardening here is very different to the mainland and I would even describe the zone as more cold temperate. As for your chooks, both you and Kate, I can’t recommend highly enough the good old Australorp. It is a great laying OR meat bird, very agreeable natures, hardy. May I recommend this post
Thanks for allowing us to meet Kate and I look forward to finding out my from her blog which I am now following. Cheers Tanya.
Gavin that was great. Lovely to hear your interview with Kate and love the idea of interviewing bloggers. Good stuff!
The idea seems to have taken off. I have lots of willing volunteers, but always after a few more of course. Well done on your solar acquisition. Believe you me, you wont look back either. It is life changing making your own electricity. You certainly respect the stuff a lot more.
You did a good job of answering the questions! Hope you liked the interview with Sarhn?
Thanks for the chook tip. I will check out our local poultry club and see if they have any breeders nearby.
Are you up for an interview? I don’t have your email address, or otherwise I would have asked you already! Let me know plz.
