Welcome to my new podcast, Hello, I’m Friday!
‘m so happy to announce my new podcast, Hello, I’m Friday! The whole thing will be all about experiencing some Friday on Monday morning, which basically means to let go of any tension all your to-dos might bring, and any resentment you might have for things you can’t avoid.
There’s too much discussion on social media about Friday excitement and Monday blues. In a deeper level, it’s kind of sad not only because it seems most people don’t feel excited about their work, but also because we haven’t found a way to take lightly the must-dos. In a more entertaining level, the memes and the giggles are amusing and make it easier to describe a feeling just by mentioning a day of the week.
This isn’t the first time I’m. using this name. “Hello, I’m Friday” had been my personal column on my own digital magazine, Fashiulous, on 2014. I left it aside for a while and when I felt the urge to create a podcast I just knew how I wanted to name it.
It’s not just about the days of the week, the social media culture and the memes. “Hello, I’m Friday” is, in reality, a personal name. It’s my name. I’m not being dramatic. I’m greek and my name is Evi, which is short for Paraskevi, which in Greek means Friday -can you imagine the teasing I had to put up with at school? I actually hated my name when I was little, and my mom would tell me that every Friday was my name day, to comfort me -but I knew she was lying.
So, yes, I actually am Friday!
My beloved Alex Box said once (or at least I heard it from her) “If it’s free, you are the product”. So I want to let you know that there will be (clearly marked) promotional messages in the podcast, promoting either my own offerings or products and services I adore and would share with you either way. Other than that and occasional affiliate links here and there, don’t expect manipulative tactics from me, trying to push you into buying (into) anything.
That’s exactly why I need your help to spread the word. If you like something you heard, if you feel inspired by something you saw, if you know someone you would too, please share this piece of content and future or past ones, please bring more people in here, who would find value. That’s the way to support me even if you never buy from me!
As everything I create (from now on), I want every episode of the podcast to be an experience for you and not just another piece of content to passively consume. This is why, in the second half of every episode, I’ll be painting you a picture using words, aiming to engage all your senses and make it a vibrant scene you can feel like you’re in. You can either listen to it as a story or -if it’s safe for you- close your eyes and fully immerse into it. You always have the choice and you’ll get to enjoy the whole experience either way.
