As I mentioned in the last post, I made a lot of changes behind the scenes with my channel. However I did add a couple of new things that can be publicly seen. I placed videos into their proper playlists and added a new one (last time I said I added a couple of new playlists…turns out it was only one…I’m tired)
Here is the current layout of playlists I have on my channel.
No, this isn’t related to something Google has done. So, don’t freak out at the title of this post. I decided to stay up a bit after I came home from work last night and evaluate my Youtube channel. I liked looking back on some of the videos I have made over the years, but I think it’s time for a change. For a long time there wasn’t much order to my channel. Random videos with scattered playlists, the channel front not welcoming to new viewers and general inactivity.
So, I figured it was time to weed out some of the videos I had on my channel and start getting rid of dead or empty playlists and delete the videos that are no longer needed for whatever reason. I started off with 120 and toned it down to just 16. It wasn’t easy, but it was necessary. Most of the remaining videos are hosted on forums and such for specific reasons and therefore cannot be removed at this time.
Anyway, I have updated the channel. Created some new playlists and included the proper videos for them. Other videos will stay up until I can manage to record new versions of them. I’m still debating a couple of playlists I have, but for now I think that’s enough.
It’s been a long time since I have updated the website. So, I decided I should take some time to spruce it up a bit this week as that is part of my to-do list. I sit here writing this note wondering where to go from here, however this time around I actually have a plan of sorts. I have been wanting to get back into making videos recently. I haven’t touched my camera in about a month or so, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been making stuff.
Each video I filmed never came out at the level of satisfactorily that I would be comfortable with posting for the public to see and so they would be constantly scrapped and I would get annoyed about the whole thing. I’ve been trying to balance things in my life as well, so that has taken up quite a bit of time. I realize that I need to start doing some things for just me, even if it’s just every once in a while and working on media is something I love to do. I have some ideas that I have been wanting to try out and I think this week might be the perfect time to start working on them. I have commitments to uphold as well, but I will work on using some spare time when I get home from work to try to put something together for my Youtube channel.
I would like to get back to working on some smaller projects just for fun. I’m not a great photographer nor am I an artist by any stretch of the imagination, but I do like to take pictures as a hobby and have yet to take any this year. Also, I have been saving some origami projects that I have wanted to do as well. So, stay tuned for those updates. I should have something set up by the end of the week to post on here.
