Hey guys ive started beekeeping this year, I am committing to using no treatments on my hives. I was thinking of doing an audio journal of my activities.

The audio would be to discuss my problems and how I overcome them.

I know there are a few podcasts out there already, but let me know if that sounds really good or really bad. :D



Thanks guys, and be honest.

Have you considered how you'd deal with it if things go badly?

Podcast wouldn't be much fun if bees were slowly collapsing.

Right it will be a tough time. I am committed to the process anyway. In my personal opinion we must keep breeding bees in such a way as to give them the best chance to develop their own way of fighting back. Do I know the solution? No. But im willing to commit the resources and time.

I would recommend doing the podcast if for nothing other than the experience of it. You can use it like a journal for beekeeping and it will make you think of more things related to beekeeping.

I started a blog about 6 weeks ago. Despite not having very many hits, I have found it to be a rewarding experience already. I primarily use the blog for recording this latest adventure in beekeeping. There is a chance that I may stick with this hobby longer than two years. I think it would be fun to revisit my old and erroneous ideals a few years from now.

Go for it! I would rather regret the things that I've done than the things that I didn't do.

Needo thanks for the support. Maybe you could link your blog so I could check it out? Might be able to review your blog posts in my podcast so we have two different perspectives?

Here (http://thebumblingbeekeeper.blogspot.com/) is the link. There won't be any hard feelings on my part if you don't give me a plug. I am just enjoying the experience in its own right. Plus I wanted to show that anyone can keep bees.
