So I have some news I announced earlier today on Patreon and which I’ll be announcing on socials in a few days: sometime in the next two weeks my podcast will hit 1 million all-time downloads. ONE MILLION! This is an enormous milestone for any podcast, let alone an independent show that I still write, host and produce myself* (albeit with the help of a freelance audio editor to clean up the sound quality in post production now).
To celebrate I am launching an online community piece on Instagram called #ITalkAboutMentalHealth and I’m asking for YOU to get involved in creating the content for Episode 120: Let’s Talk About… You (due out on Feb 27), which will be a collection of tips, techniques and advice for better mental health based on what you have found works for you.
Your anonymity will be protected and I’ll just be sharing your first name and country if your tip is chosen to be included. I’ll be asking people to submit via Instagram, however you can get a head-start and leave me a comment below or submit it via my website! I’ll be launching this on Instagram in a few days so consider this an opportunity to get involved early and help me to celebrate this massive milestone that wouldn’t have been possible without your support. Please note I reserve the right to make the final decision about which tips will be shared and I cannot guarantee that they will all be included.
So… greetings and salutations, and a very warm welcome to another newsletter. I hope you enjoy my quick snapshot of my favourite things this week — hopefully at least one of them will make you smile/feel inspired. Have a fantastic week!
*I think I’ve mentioned this before, but if you’ve noticed me signing off on the podcast and other things with reference to the show being presented/produced by Reconnaissance Media, that is actually my business name and I’m doing that because there will be lots of new stuff coming under that banner throughout 2022 and beyond.
PS: I would love it if you would consider becoming a supporter on Patreon, because I want to keep my work ad-free but those behind-the-scenes costs really do add up. For $3 AUD per month you’ll get a shout-out in the weekly transcript for each podcast episode, or for $8 AUD a month you’ll get that plus an exclusive monthly video in which I share what is coming up on the podcast and YouTube channel for the next month… and you can submit your questions about mental health and my work which I will answer in the video. If you’d like to become a supporter then click here and I will be eternally grateful! Thank you 🙂
