A Summer of Resiliency in 2021

If there was ever a summer of the comeback kids, it’s this one, summer 2021! This comeback kid on wheels is feeling the resilience of America everywhere I roll and on the podcast apps I scroll!

This summer, I just found out the original online talk show I had created, The Sportshour with Alex Garrett , was approved by the iHeartRadio app!

Why this means so much is there were countless times while on air at WQMC Radio at Queens College the ratings meter did not tick up very much. That honestly got into my head a lot more than I’d like to admit! Imagine thinking you are taking to yourself and only thyself?! Yet, I didn’t give up on the show and now it’s on podcast apps all over the place!

Let me say that again: I didn’t give up on the show and now it’s on podcast apps all over the place, under the umbrella of Alex Garrett Podcasting. So if this summer can be realized as a summer of resilience, you TOO can stay resilient!

While we now have to hunker down against the Delta variant, our resilience is needed again and that includes not locking down again! We can weather this storm without shutting down, I freaking feel it!

It’s wild to think seeing my own show on IHeartRadio and some confidence-stilling can inspire staying the course of resiliency . It’s the only way I know how to live by persevering and living through any adversity! It can be done!

A self-created podcast on a podcast app has helped teach me that this summer of the come back kid!

The Quest For 25K Podcast Plays and 200 Blog Follows

I’m going to be up front with you. I’m on a mission! To know that we are just under 600 downloads away from 25,000 is so exciting. On my social media I really have been pushing people to help get ‘Alex Garrett Podcasting’ over the 25,000 play threshold! I feel 25k makes this podcast even more marketable and perhaps sponsorship-worthy. I never wanted to charge for people to hear my words, but at the same time, I’m beginning to feel the value of this podcast rise due to the great guests that trust this podcast to get their message out!

For many years of this 7 year journey I pigeon-holed this podcast to sports and politics and honestly not much else. When I began to include human interest, something clicked in my brain to start ‘Adapting With Alex Garrett’. Adaptation has been a theme through this pandemic and to hear about how people have adapted their lives to make it work has truly been an inspiration. It’s in that vein, I look to continue podcasting and blogging. Yet, I can always use that boost of an extra play here or there that could get us to 25k!

As far as this blog is going, the outreach and continued support has been bad-ass. Thank you so much for the likes and the follows on these blog entries! I don’t know how people are gravitating but I am grateful they are! I’ve honestly started debating about content subscriptions, but I believe rev/share can be had through advertising and not asking anyone personally for money . That I always will maintain free for readers and for podcast liseners alike!

So together, let’s make this marketable, let’s make this network even more valuable. It is a numbers game and not just cool stories that will truly add value and I’m not ashamed to say, I’d love your help in moving us even more in this journey by subscribing to this blog OR my podcast!

Let’s grow together!
