To monetize or not? That seems to be an ongoing question throughout the podcasting and blogging world. It has even crossed my mind many a times. Just recently, I thought of monetizing Breakfast with Tyffanie. The circumstances surrounding the situation seemed dire at the time but have since been resolved. (ie, I was worried I was going to loose my job. A little podcast making a little money during a time of potentially no income is a godsend.)
I can’t fault anyone who wants to monetize their podcast or blog. They obviously thought through the pros and cons and came to the decision to monetize. Who knows, maybe in the future, I might go down that route. But not right now
But I’d like to think I would monetize for reasons other than supplementing my income. Podcasting is a creative outlet and as Madge Weinstein put it one day on Yeast Radio (I’m not exactly quoting here), “Artists are taken advantage of because people know that Artists need to create.” Artists create and will always create. That is something that can be exploited and is commonly exploited regularly. It’s like telling a junky that they need to jump through hoops before they can get their next fix and laughing at them as they jump through those hoops. (crude analogy, I know!)

The Agenda with Steve Paikin is coming to Kingston in the New Year! Yeah! I’m such a big fan of TVO / TV Ontario / Channel 2and I’m a bigger fan of Steve Paikin.
The Agenda is going around Ontario doing a guided discussion on different economies that make up Ontario. In previous episodes, they have travelled to Sault Ste Marie to discuss the Resource Economy (mining, forestry, etc) and a few other cities. When Steve comes to Kingston town they will be discussing the Agrarian Economy.
Now, I don’t know much about Agrarian’s let alone their Economy.. but.. Just kidding!!!
I’ve signed up to watch the live broadcast from Grant Hall on Queen’s Campus on Monday, January 19th. I’m debating if I should attend the AgendaCampthe day before on Sunday, January 19th.
I’m debating because I know I’m not an expert on the Agrarian Economy. However, I have posted to their AgendaCamp Wiki some topics and potential speakers that I want to see at Agenda Camp. Without reposting, let me link http://wiki.theagenda.tvo.org/Kingston%3a_Potential_Topics%3f If the link is dead, that means I’ve overstepped my bounds lol!

Last night I had a talk discussing ME! lol! Here are the videos.
November 15th, 2008Blog
I’m sitting here on a Saturday afternoon nursing a bit of a headache. The headache wasn’t caused by anything I did last night, unfortunately. I’m listening to the Perry Twin’s Myspace Page currently on their track “Activate My Body” wishing my body could get activated today. Well at least out from the chair. I’m also finishing up some editing of video from last night’s Talk I did.
I was asked by the Sexual and Gender Diversity Certificate Program of the Department of Women’s Studies of Queen’s University to do a little talk with students and anyone who wanted to come by. How could I have said no? Any opportunity to engage a room full of people and talk about how FABULOUS I am!
Well the talk was a success. I was told I was engaging and entertaining. Which is what I was hoping for! Now I wonder if the content was good too? I better ask around. Anyway…
So there will be 4 video clips right now. I’ve edited them to be put on YouTube (as they are large files and I don’t want to eat up anymore bandwidth on tyffanie.com). They will be up very shortly. Check them out. Hopefully, I haven’t demystified the Drag QueenTags: Blog, Queen's University, Sexual and Gender Diversity, SweetPea Press, Talk, Talk with Tyffanie

Oh my goodness, SweetPeas. I am getting SO nervous with the talk I’m doing. The talk will be on Queen’s Campus this Friday, November 14th at 5:30pm in Macintosh-Corry rm E229. So let me back up here and tell you how I got into this situation.
I believe it was about a month ago (probably around the beginning of October) I was approached by Professor Jane Tolmie who runs the Sexual and Gender Diversity program of the Women’s Studies Department at Queen’s University to do a talk with her class. It is a certificate program giving students a perspective on… well… sexual and gender identity. Somehow I fit in there She asked if I could talk with her students in a type of lecture then progress to a very informal “go to the bar and chat” at the Grad Club.
Being the multimedia whore that I am, I thought it would be very important to incorporate multimedia into my presentation. Well, that’s where things begin to get crazy. I was implementing a PowerPoint presentation extravaganza on my MacBook incorporating video and audio. I didn’t realize that the presentation wouldn’t be PC friendly.
So here I am at work trying to redo some elements of my PowerPoint presentation so that it could be PC friendly. But I’m loosing some of the multimedia It is a bit upsetting and a bit scary. But I’m also realizing that I may be putting too much focus on the multimedia and not the content. This is even more scary!
After fixing this PowerPoint, I’m moving it to the side. Now I need to focus on what I want to say in 30 minutes. Can you imagine me just talking about myself in 30 minutes? I talk about nothing for 30 minutes every Thursday with Breakfast with Tyffanie. I’m just kidding! But seriously, this is a bit scary. What should I focus on in 30 minutes?
I don’t know why I keep asking that question: What should I focus on in 30 minutes? I asked that question of my listening audience of Breakfast with Tyffanie and I got 50 respondents. 50! Very very happy about that.
I just need to relax. I can do this. I do this all the time. Oh goodness, I hope I don’t mess up! Wish me luckTags: Blog, fear, MacBook, multimedia, PC, SweetPea Press, Talk with Tyffanie
