Hello again, THP.
Let me start and end with an apology. First, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to post any status about this. It's been nearly a month since I created this thread. You're probably wondering: what have I accomplished so far?
Well, to tell you the truth, I've barely been able to scrape together even a paragraph of an outline for the first podcast. Now, I can go on and on about how I've been too busy, or I'm under stress from a personal issue, or some other similar scenario, but that would be a lie. The truth is, I think this idea was a little presumptuous on my part.
See, I've never done anything like a podcast before, so I made the silly presumption that this would be something simple that I could throw together with minimal effort. I soon realized, however, that hosting THP's podcast would take a lot more out of me than I had anticipated. More than I can give, I'm afraid.
That's my fault, of course. I should have put more research and thought into everything before making the jump and getting everybody's hopes up.
I've been tossing back and forth what to do from here. Do I just go ahead with the podcast, just so that it exists? No, I felt that if I were to do this, I would need to do it properly. It would need to be something I could actually put passion into and produce an excellent result. So, now what? Do I forget about this thread, pretend it never happened? That would be too foolish.
Well, finally, I decided to just come out with it. I don't have the experience, nor enough commitment, to do this thing. I'm going to have to put it on hold. Probably indefinitely. (Or, at least, it won't happen from my fingertips. Perhaps someone else out there with better resolve for this sort of thing might use this thread as a resource. But, I digress.)
The guilt flows through my blood at an uncomfortable pace. I feel like an asshole for letting you guys down in this way, and I'm really sorry. I hope those of you who were interested in this can forgive me for backing out. Maybe, somehow, I can make it up to you all somehow in
