They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. What do “they” know? I just combined three sites into this one. This is the blog of Kenn Blanchard, serial optimist, hope finder, entreprenuer, podcaster, podcast editor, author, technical writer, public speaker, Christian pastor, and gun rights activist known internationally as the Black Man With A Gun.
This is also the business site of Blanchard Media where I provide podcast editing and consulting. I work with a team of folks where you can get cool logos made, website redesigns, creations and graphic design work.
I’m still learning. I have been podcasting since 2007.
If you are looking for graphic, design or web services I got a team of friends that will blow the socks off your competition. I can help guide you in what sells, and some of the best practices for podcasting album art and logo design.
If you follow my post on the blog section you’ll find things about motorcycles, cigars, marketing, fishing, blogging, podcasting, and life experiences I want to share with you. I’ve been writing online since 1999 and have several sites.
I am also involved in podcasting in a big way. I have two shows of my own and help others edit and produce theirs. I have been podcasting since 2007. From what I have learned from my multitude of mistakes over the years, I help others save time and money.
I’ve written a few books.
