Hello beautiful people!
It’s been a while since I’ve just dropped a hello and updated what was going on the the blog and other projects. So here’s a little heads up for you all if you wanted to know.
You may have noticed I have actually gotten a decent and regular posting schedule again. It’s every Monday, roughly around 10 AM (pst), which so far seems to be working out well. Alas I’d love to go back to posting twice a week, but with working full time M-F I only have a handful of free hours to also dedicate to my other projects and the rest of life. So for now it’ll stay on this schedule, with an occasional double weekly post if I have the time to do so! I know I’ve been doing a lot of game posts lately, so I’m hitting the library this week to try and find some novels to throw in here to for my book lovers.
A few of you may have noticed a little post about a small video I posted on my Youtube Channel. In the past I’ve talked about doing a review channel to reach a different type of audience and to see if I can get more constructive feedback from viewers. I love this blog and community, but alas the feedback is almost non-existant which doesn’t help me grow and improve. Well it’s finally coming together! It took a lot longer than I would have liked to, but that’s no ones fault but my own. I kept waiting for ‘the right time’ and ‘the right equipment’ until finally I just jumped right in. At the moment, it only sports a few videos of short ‘Let’s Play’s’ of games on the PS4. Alas, my headset is not the best and therefore my speaking in those videos vs no speaking is about half and half. Next week I will have a new proper headset so that I can do these a lot better. Also starting next week (hopefully) I will begin filming reviews. What type of reviews? you may be asking? As much as I’d love to do visual reviews of all the genres I review on here, I decided it’s best to stick small and grow from there. So for now I’ll only be doing in depth reviews for games on the channel. I’ll also have a small section, much like I do here in Ramblings, for off base topics or breaking down my thoughts on related subjects. I’m still undecided if I shall continue to also do a full review or partial review on the Blog that then links to my Youtube channel, so we’ll have to see about that. I’ll still be posting once a week on the Blog though so don’t fret. I’ll just also be posting once a week on my channel (day of the week to be decided).
How long ago did I mention I was going to put together a short story collection and publish it? I can’t even remember at this point, it was shamefully that long ago! Well, again, I’ve kicked myself in the butt for not doing something about it because I was ‘waiting on better material’ and judging myself really hard on what I did have. Well no more! I actually have an editor for my short stores who will be working on them one at a time for me. She’s already working on one as we speak! Thus I’m finally putting this in the works, and when there is a significant update, such as I finished all rough drafts or moving on to the organizing of chapters, I’ll keep you posted! This will be an digital publishing only to begin with, but we’ll get to that more as it comes closer. I don’t have a schedule for this really, I just write in my few meager spare minutes at work and then at home in between things. This is on the lowest tier of my totem pole, but it’s still very important to me. No title for the book has been set yet either.
Well there really isn’t much ‘other’ going on right now. I’m in the middle of moving, transferring to a new job, and trying to save up every penny I have to help purchase tools and support needed to further my creative projects. A big thank you to all you followers for sticking with me or just joining up! As always, please share your thoughts and opinions on any post that interests you! Have a quip about how to make the blog more user friendly, interesting, etc? Let me know that too! I’m always looking to grow and improve, and I can’t do that all alone. I need help from people like you who are interested in these topics to let me know if I should be doing something different or if I’m staying on the right track! If this Blog isn’t enough social media interaction with moi, then you can also find me at these other fabulous locations!
See you all in the next update, I have to finish writing the review for Monday!
