No instagram, only wallpapers

I’m the type of person who likes to change the wallpaper on my phone or computer from time to time. It’s pure, personal satisfaction. No one else sees it, or tries to look at it. It’s just for me. Moving wallpapers are the best because…well… they move. Now, how do I promote my podcast without making it look like this whole post was made just to promote my podcast?

Breaking the bubble

I am somebody who grew up hating the mainstream. When Game of Thrones first came out, I was in on it. Yes, that’s right, I was one of the mighty losers who watched the pilot episode where some of the lead characters were played by different actors. But then it came to point where I would have to wait a year for the next season to come out, plus it became so mainstream that I actually lost interest in watching it. Fortunately, I ended up finishing it recently, and it was probably the best thing I have ever watched on TV. I also hate the hugely successful series called Friends. It got to the point where, if somebody’s Tinder bio mentioned anything remotely related to Friends, I would blindly reject them. The judgement was pretty irrational. The same happened with podcasts. Everybody wouldn’t shut up abut the Joe Rogan Podcast, and I tired watching an episode, and I ended up hating the guy. I just didn’t like his vibe. Fast forward to today, I tried stepping out of my bubble, and giving it another shot. I watched the one with Neil deGrasse Tyson on Spotify, and I have to say, I still disagree with a lot of things he says, but Mr. Rogan is growing on me. Wait… I think I still hate him, it’s just the guest that I liked. Plus, I never knew Spotify had video, so there’s that.

Zero

Here’s my analytics for a podcast streaming service that caters mainly to my fellow Indians:

What do I take away from this? Do they hate me? Of course not! No one has even tried listening to me once 😦

How do I promote it then? I know the obvious choice is to post nudes, and attack other podcasters, but I want to do something new. I wonder, how does Joe Rogan get to partner with Spotify? Effort, you say? Pfft

Creativity?

I was looking for a better logo for my podcast. So I let creativity take over, and I started scribbling stuff in Paint. What looks good, stands out, and doesn’t take up much space? It’s a single letter, on a light background, with a kick ass font color. I did it. I wrote a big bold ‘N’ in red, on a mind-blowing white background, and I thought to myself, “why hasn’t anybody thought of this before? This looks simply amazing”. And then I saw the Netflix logo.
