Beginning a Podcast

I started my podcast a few weeks ago and I have discovered a few things. First, I began recording with my iPad and I loved the quality it produced. The thing that I found frustrating was that it filled up fast and I could not see myself or a light while I was recording. This led to many frustrating nights. In addition, the sound was okay, but I felt it could be better. After spending a few weeks recording this way, I talked it over with my hubby. We brainstormed using my MacBook Air to record the video because it offered me a few options. I could see when the video was recording and I could use an external microphone for the audio. The downside is that I gave up the HD recording. I recorded my podcast this week with the new equipment. I absolutely love the sound quality, but I'm still up in the air on the video. I will continue to work on solutions, and I welcome any suggestions that you may have. In the meantime, I have included this week's show notes here. Thank you for checking in and watching my podcast.
