Why So Long?
Looking at the history of sending newsletters from this account the last one I sent was the 1 year celebration of Sleepy Time Tales, in March of 2020.
The fact is that fitting Sleepy Time Tales in between work and family life has been challenging at times.
I’ve never missed an episode, even when being sick or too busy has meant I needed to repurpose some Patreon content, or recorded over several days because I don’t want to injure an infected throat.
And the show itself has always been a priority, because I feel obligated to the listeners I have, but not really had the bandwidth to do ‘marketing’ or anything outside of making sure I hit ‘publish’ on the episode.
And What’s Changed?
For those who don’t follow my twitter @sleepytimetales I decided to leave my job in July. I’ve been in the hospitality industry since leaving school, and as my daughter grows up spending every weekend and holiday away from her and my wife has become more difficult.
So, I cashed in my pension with the plan of working more on Sleepy Time Tales, and using the experience I’ve gained editing the show to start seriously taking client work as a podcast editor. I’ve started up Bright Vox Audio as a separate entity to take on some client work. So if you or someone you know is looking for an editor or is interested in podcasting and needs some help, pop me a mail at email@example.com or check out the site, brightvoxaudio.com. There is an introductory offer available at the moment.
And The Future?
Now I have the time now to work to grow Sleepy Time Tales and the editing business, so my original vision of becoming a directory of sorts for interesting and helpful health news and resources is now practical.
So, keep an eye on your inbox for a weekly update on sleep and health related stories from various news sources, and the occasional offer from partners I believe will be beneficial to Sleepy Time Tales listeners.
And supporting those partners, will support Sleepy Time Tales, and me.
Thanks for indulging me this far. I promise that in future the preamble will be quicker.
