If you’re a regular listener to the While She Naps podcast you know that at the end of every episode I ask my guests to recommend great stuff they’re enjoying right now. This is one of my favorite parts of the show, and I routinely hear from listeners that they love these recommendations.
In celebration of the While She Naps podcast’s third anniversary I’d like do a special episode opening up the show to the entire community. Episode #86 will showcase your voices recommending great stuff you’re loving right now! I would love to have you contribute.
So, take a minute to think of something you’d recommend to a creative friend. It could be:
- a book
- a magazine
- a website
- an app
- a special tool like a paintbrush or a crochet hook
- a pattern
- a newsletter
- a podcast or audio book
- a class, retreat, or conference
It doesn’t have to be new. It just has to be something you truly enjoy and would recommend that other creative people check out.
Got something? Yay!
Now tell me about it!
Start by saying:
- Your first and last name and where you’re from.
- The name of your website (if you have one).
- What you’re recommending and why. Be sure to tell us how we can get it.
The recording is can be up to 3 minutes in total, or you it can be shorter. If you mess up you’ll be able to start over so don’t worry! When you’re ready, hit send and it will land in my inbox.
A few tips for making things sound good – try plugging in some headphones while you record and be sure you’re in a quiet room.
And just to give you that extra push in case you’re a bit nervous about recording your voice and hearing it on the show, I will draw a name at random from everyone who sends me a voicemail and one person will win a $100 gift certificate to Sprout Patterns. If you haven’t checked out Sprout yet it’s Spoonflower’s cut-and-sew division. Choose any Spoonflower fabric and have it printed as a pattern that you can easily cut and sew together. (Read more about Sprout in my post from when they launched). A big thank you to Sprout for this generous prize!
Contributions open today and I’ll take as many as I can between now and November 18. Then I’ll edit them together to create one incredible podcast full of awesome recommendations from all of you! I may not be able to use ever submission, but everyone will be entered to win the Sprout gift certificate. The show will air on Monday, December 19.
Please don’t be nervous! Just go for it. I’m so excited to hear from you!
