Hello and welcome to the first-ever episode of INTENTIONALLY MOUTHY, in which I introduce you to who I am, what this show is about, where its name comes from, and how it came to be.
In short, this podcast started off as an idea MANY years ago. Back then I was mainly focused on sharing my Hispanic, Conservative, and Millennial–in other words, common-sense–voice through my blog ANNIESAIDSO.COM, but I nevertheless thought, Wouldn’t it be great to put an actual voice to these thoughts?
At around the same time that idea was planted in my head, blogging started to change, and not for the better. It began to become more FAKE, more sponsored, more focused on advertisers and views–more about conveying the perfect image and less about the real and the raw behind someone’s life!
Well, not me: Although I loved writing SOME sponsored content, I could see I didn’t have a passion for some of what was being assigned to me, so I quit “blogging” and went back to the basics. Back to being… ME!
I’d still welcome sponsors but from now on, it was going to be about ME and MY take on things, because that’s what I enjoyed writing about the most all along. People also identify with my point of view and I was so happy to continue providing that to them!
Fast-forward about a year after I quit blogging as people had come to think of “blogging” and the podcast idea became more and more prominent in my mind.
But what would I name it?
Well, long story short, my husband came up with part of the show’s name. The other part was inspired by a “movement” that’s taken over society and which I find hilarious.
Tune in to find out more and enjoy!
And of course, don’t hesitate to let me know what you thought.
(The show was just submitted to the major podcast players/directories and is in the process of being approved, which is why I don’t have those Subscription links yet BUT I’ll be sure to post them as soon as I get them.)
Until next time, make today great!
