The Web Guy
Since the age of 12 I’ve been messing around with computers. I used to make up little secret clubs for myself and friends, where you’d get a “welcome pack” which was a series of interconnected Word documents, with passwords and even hyperlinks to go through to each section. When the internet came along, I started to mess around with websites, building my own using things like Frontpage.
For the past 3 years I’ve been developing full-time. Working with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and good old-fashioned HTML. You can find my work over at Cut Media.
I’m Phil Coyne. A self-confessed geek from Birmingham, UK. I’ve podcasted since March of 2005 (on and off) and in that time have learnt a lot. I’ve taught myself audio editing, production and promotion, as well as made a ton of contacts within the podcasting world as well as with the bands and artists I’ve played.
The last year has only allowed me to post sporadically. At one point I used to publish one every day, which went down really well with my listeners, but it proved to be waaaaaay too demanding on me. I’ve done live shows, which again were a great hit, but took a lot to prepare and enduring the problems I faced was sometimes just a little too much.
Podcasting as I knew it when I started has changed. It’s evolved and grown into something bigger, even if it’s not as mainstream as we thought it would be. The last time I published a new one was March. It was very enjoyable, even if I did have to re-record it because everything was all jumpy.
I think that’s the problem, and one of the reasons why I’ve not been active at all recently, I got to the point where nothing was new. I’d done a lot of what I could in terms of interviews, building up contacts and finding new music.
So, there you go. I’m slowly trying to claw my way back into the swing of things. I may get some scathing comments from certain people out there, but to be honest, I’m happy with that! Look out for more from me soon.
