Podcast

The Monday Monologue is my foray into podcasting. Each week I talk about ideas I’m processing, whether they be on technology, ministry, or life in general.

The Return of the Monologue

After a ten-month hiatus I’m bringing back The Monday Monologue Podcast. In this episode I relay to you a personal and professional update on my life. Specifically, I’ll talk about getting married and starting a small business.

I realized after recording that I wasn’t very clear when I was talking about Kathy’s thoughts on where I might take her on our honeymoon. She didn’t think I’d take her to a beach because I’m not very fond of it. She loves the beach. Just wanted to clear that up. I’d hate for you to think I took her someplace that I knew she wouldn’t like.

Measuring Success

In this week’s episode I scrutinize the quantitative and subjective ways in which I measure the success of my writing that I’ve published on the web. It’s been a subject that’s weighed heavily on my mind over the past couple months as I’ve found myself with less and less time to write anything new.

The Power of Feedback

In today’s podcast episode I talk about how I’ve started to realize how much I depend on receiving feedback to power my enthusiasm. I’m noticing this to be true not only when it comes to my personal websites but other projects I’ve taken on as well.

Man, it’s been a long time since I last posted a podcast episode. I can’t believe I let it slip for so long. Glad to be back in the saddle today.

This is a very meta request, but I’d appreciate your feedback on my thoughts on feedback.

  • I mentioned a recent post entitled Availability, Creativity, and Momentum during this episode. That post served as a starting point for a number of the thoughts I expressed here.
  • I am the content manager for several websites, but the one I talked about at length in this post is Florida Navs. It’s a clearinghouse of discipleship resources for college students and recent college grads.

Ready or Not, Here I Come

Today was the big launch of the Florida Navs website. Just like most of my creative projects it took me ’til the eleventh hour to get it out the door. But I’m excited for what this could be the start of.

Consistency and Honesty

To become an influential writer on the Internet two of the most important goals you ought to set for yourself are consistency and honesty. Publishing on a consistent schedule and speaking genuinely with your audience are paramount to your success. In this week’s episode I talk about these ideas in relation to the upcoming launch of Florida Navs.

Exceeding Expectations

As I continue to prepare for the launch of the new Florida Navs website I’ve begun to consider what it would look like to exceed expectations that someone might have for a ministry website like this. I feel it’s a critical ingredient to longterm success.

Wearing Many Hats

This fall my ministry with The Navigators is going to look very different from any year previous. I’m spearheading the creation and expansion of the Florida Navs website, an online discipleship resource. I’ve started to realize just how many roles I’ve taken on.

The Motivation Behind Creativity

What motivates me more, the desire to prove myself to others or a sense of personal calling? I talk about what both of these positions look like and some of their implications.

Making My Film Debut

This past weekend I got to be an extra on the set of “A Different Life,” the movie my roommate Peter LeVake is directing as part of his graduate program in the FSU Film School. I had a great time and I even got a small speaking role!
