YouTube Stuff

I haven’t reminded all of you of the existence of my YouTube channel in awhile, so this is me doing that, but since I’ve done a few since the last time I linked anything here, I’ll just give you my channel and tell you to subscribe, watch and like, comment on whatever, and possibly even leave advice about what you’d like to see.

Right now, it’s mostly just me babbling, but I have recently acquired a game capture card that I’m trying to get better with despite how frustrating it seems to be. Biggest issue is with editing (can’t skip editing, or you’ll being watching about an hour of stuff happening), Movie Maker is free, so that’s what I have, and it’s a pain in the ass to do anything with. Plus, the card argues too much with my computer in general with trying to fight for space…

so… yea… here’s stuff:

Well, it’s been awhile, but I assure you I’m still alive. The day-job world has been cutting into all other worlds a bit more than usual for almost the half the year, but I think I finally got that issue back to normal-ish. What that means for more blogging, I don’t all together know, but what I do know about it is the part that I’m here to tell you about. Remember the YouTube thing that I made mention of that I was considering doing…? Yep, I’ve started, and only slightly more sluggishly and randomly than this thing is. But it’s another creative outlet, and I plan to see where it can go… with presently no clue where it is going.

Thursday is the 2nd anniversary of this blog, and even though I have completely blown off this thing for most of the year, I do plan to do something—haven’t entirely decided what yet, though a Flash might be among the things. But, aside from that, I’m trying to fix my lack of being here as well. I have been gone because of work and writing (which is also work—it just hasn’t paid a bill yet), but next week, my shift changes, and my free time should be different which is looking better for my writing time for both here and, more importantly, the novels/short-stories.

But, due to the recent shutting down of Yahoo’s freelance program (which I never got the chance to make use of), I have had to put thought into where else to make money. I have considered YouTube, but, frankly, I’m a writer, not a speaker. Kudos to the people that can spew verbal diarrhea and get enough attention to quit their jobs, but that’s just not what I do (still considering it a little, but it’s lower on my list of possible). So then we look at this blog—I have been trying to keep this more of a thing I do for fun and never money, but then I started figuring, you readers are getting ads either way, the only difference is between who’s getting paid for those ads, nothing personal to WordPress, but that’s my money, damn’it. So in reality, on your end, the worst that would really happen is the ads are a little closer to stuff that is relevant (although I can’t see the ads as is, so I don’t really know how random they are), all the while you are feeding my bank account while subliminal advertising for things you now believe you want is embedded in your mind.

On that, I need to redesign the blog with more structure. Something I’ve been meaning to do anyway, but that’s just a lot of work that is a pain in the ass (especially with code restrictions right now), but for the sake of making this look more appealing, I should give this better structure. Actually put the different categories of interest in their own place and such.

So, yeah, this is just me giving you a heads up about stuff about to happen, and I’m not capable of giving timeframe, but at some point the URL will probably change (because I would have bought the space), and the layout will hopefully change.

If you’re a regular, you may have noticed the St. Jude link is gone now. The Michigan Warrior Dash came and went, and you gave me nothing but $20 (all from people I know), so no pictures for you (unless you happen to follow me on Twitter and/or FB). I will be doing the Dash again next year though, I’ll update you when I can, and I hope you will give a bit more.

You have a couple days, if you read the blog, tell me what you would like me to do for the anniversary. Flash, reviews, you tell me—if you don’t tell me, then I’m just going to ramble for a couple pages worth with lots of swears—that’s how I get the ratings motha’fuckas!

Hi—I know I’m a week and a day behind on my blog, but it’s somewhat work related reasoning. Presently, I’m trying to go through the mess of figuring out Yahoo! Contributor Network so I can try becoming a paid contributor. It is nearing a year here at the blog, and in that time I have concluded that I have some idea of how to gain enough readership to try to get money out of it (I’m not a sell-out, I’m just poor).

The day-job hours are about to be thrown in the air again, and rather than risk struggling with money as a result, I would try to find a use for that time. One will be to complete a novel and force you all to pay me for it and make rich, and the other will be to try to fill the gaps with YCN.

And that is about all I have time to say right now, but I thought I should let you in on the lack of posting. I will try at some point this week to get in a review for ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ ‘cause I finally got to see it, but I can’t really make promises on that right now. As for what I’ll be doing on YCN, I’m not entirely decided, but I’m more than likely sticking with the Entertainment categories (not much different than here, just stuff I don’t put here—‘cause I need to get paid for it).
