Up until this point I haven’t been able to narrow down exactly the format or topic that I want to explore for my first podcast episode. I want to keep it broad as to not limit myself, however eventually I have to make a decision once it comes to recording time. I have decided to create a vision board so that I always have something to refer back to for ideas whenever I feel stuck or unsure of my next step forward.
I have never created a vision board. I have recently discovered “vision board Tiktok” and it inspired me to do the same. I didn’t know exactly where to start so I went to google. The first vision board website that I found was by the one and only……Oprah Winfrey. From there I was able to get the wheels turning and jog my creativity.
For anyone that already does or is interested in using Canva, I just signed up for Canva for Educators and it approved my application immediately and I get access to all of the premium features for free. I just had to include a screen shot of the top part of my pay stub to prove I was a real teacher. We don’t have teacher Identity cards so this was the next best thing. I blurred out certain personal info as well. Canva is a great tool for visually representing your ideas. In the education version your kids are all in a class section as well and you can see what they create.
Today I used Canva to create my vision board for my podcast. Here is what I came up with. I took my description of my podcast and turned it into an esthetically pleasing reference point for whenever I need inspiration.
My next step is to choose one item from the top, and one item from the bottom and start brainstorming ideas for my first podcast episode. I also plan on creating some sort of test recording because I have also never done that before as well!
