I'm continually surprised by people telling me I'm inspiring. OK wow, that sounds like maybe I'm being prideful, but I'm honestly not. I'm just a mostly blind woman living my life, refusing to let a little thing like low vision get me down.

After a bunch of years after my first book I'll Push You Steer with my fabulous co-I'll Push You Steer by Ronda Del Boccio and Bonnie Teshauthor Bonnie Tesh, people come up to me and tell me how much they loved the story of the ironing board for the blind, or the story about how I can't get a man with a dog.

And people ask me how I do various things or laugh at my travel tales with Molly Flagtail, my former guide dog. So, I decided to have some fun and start a weekly podcast called "Low Vision Hijinx." Yeah, I create podcasts in my spare time, for fun!

Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Accepted into the iTunes Store in Record Time - 96 Minutes!

OK technically maybe 96 minutes isn't record time, I don't know for sure; but honestly, I thought I had a couple days to let people know it was coming! Yes, 96 minutes from "under review" to "published in the Tunes Store." Here's the cool cover art:

The Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Logo

Low Vision Hijinx Podcast: Not Much Eyesight - Plenty of VISION!

I designed this cover myself! (Thank you, Canva.com for making me look good!) The cover needs to be:

  • Simple
  • eye-catching
  • readable as a teensy icon in iTunes
  • Relevant to the show's theme and content

I chose a nice readable font. When I found the adorable bumblebee with a magnifying glass, I decided that was the perfect graphic. Anyone with limited eyesight has to do things that seem impossible or at least extremely difficult.

Bumblebees shouldn't be able to fly, by all the laws of physics. Yet they do. This is a real world, every day miracle. Perfect symbol.

Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Episodes

Each show will be under 10 minutes, except perhaps for something superbly spectacularly special.

  • Episode 1: That's where you get to know me a little better.
  • Episode 2: "Just Growl and Mean It" - getting rid of  stalker.
  • Episode 3: The Perfect Travel Roommate" - That's what Bonnie calls me, because she gets to hog the bathroom while I put my makeup on in the dark. 😀

Watch for new episodes every Thursday.

Please Subscribe, Rate and Review the Low Vision Hijinx Podcast!

I'd like to get this podcast to the top of the rankings for new shows, and to do that, I need your help!

  2. Please LISTEN to an episode or 2 & RATE the show (I'm hoping for 5 stars!)

Why this podcast?

I'm doing this to share a message of hope and joy. Limited eyesight need NEVER limit your life! Everyone will be touched with some degree of eyesight loss with age or with illness or accident. That need not slow you down one bit!

I hope these stories will give you a laugh and something to think about.

SHARETheme of the Week –  Effective Endings!

.Last week’s theme was Mesmerizing Middles. You can hear that message in Episode 26.

This week is all about what you do at the END of whatever it is you're offering to make the biggest impact AND keep your reader - prospect - customer - coming back for more.

It’s all too common for authors to fail at the most critical point - the ending.

There's a story I tell in this podcast episode about a pot of coffee. Be sure to listen for it, because you'll easily notice the difference between a statement or suggestion and an effective ending, which is a call to action.

You'll also discover what you can do at the very end of your book marketing pieces, such as social updates, blog posts, and videos, to keep your reader or viewer engaged!

Theme of the Week –  Mesmerizing Middles!

.Last week's theme was Strong Starts. You can hear that message in Episode 25.

This week is all about how you can create mesmerizing middles and keep up momentum. Today's message for free listeners is about keeping up your publishing momentum.

It's all too common for authors to get excited about podcasting or creating videos or being on a new-for-you social network…only to lose momentum a few weeks later.

ITunes is littered with podcasts of 10 episodes or less, because the podcaster couldn't or didn't choose to keep up with the workflow of regular episode production.

So often, someone gets excited about blogging..for a few days or weeks. Then pretty soon it's more than a month since the last post.

This sporadic production or waning wandering is NOT the way to build your author platform! You want to keep up your momentum, and this week's episode will help you do just that.
