Do you love listening to other people’s stories and experiences from their daily lives? If so, you are not alone! This has become a major industry, with “influencers” showing up across multiple social media platforms and playing a role in the decisions people make. Being an influencer may seem like the perfect job. After all, some of them make huge incomes from their blogs, vlogs, and YouTube channels! But is it right for everyone?
I’ve been sharing my experiences with others since very early in my HR career. I emailed stories about myself to illustrate elements of my life so that people could learn something from those experiences I was having. Today we refer to this practice as “lifecasting,” and on this episode, we’re going to talk about the ins and outs of lifecasting.
Through my lifecasting, you’ve got a front row seat to my life! I’ve always been a lifecaster, even when I worked in human resources and I only had access to email years ago. That was my original way to get my message out. However, as the technology has changed, the distribution methods for my message have as well. In today’s episode, we’ll explore the idea of lifecasting, and I’ll give you my thoughts on the practice.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- How I got into lifecasting and my success with it
- What lifecasting is and reasons to do it or not to do it
- Knowing what is inbounds and what is out of bounds for sharing
- Ways to test out this lifestyle to see if blogging/vlogging/sharing is for you
