Yesterday was my 42-day streak

42 is a good number, because it matches my age, and so that was nice to see.

I was just about as productive yesterday as I intended, which was lovely. And I got a little bit of relaxation in at the end as well, which was also lovely.

One of the interesting side effects of watching quite so many “How To YouTube” videos as I’m watching right now is that all those videos with the “secrets no YouTuber will tell you” all have the same things in them, which I suppose should have been expected. Also, with the sheer quantity of videos that I’m consuming, I’m discovering the advice starting to repeat. It’s a good reminder that there’s really no original content/original stories. The original portion is me – or the creator in question – and that’s what makes it unique.

It’s a good realization to have. When a person starts to feel like they can’t do anything new or original, remember that you are the new and original. Your experiences can put a spin on things that no one else has.

Well, at any rate.

The rest of today may include a trip to the office to try to tidy up a little, as I will be working from the office one day this week, and will hopefully include more similarly productive activities as yesterday. I have few actual plans, honestly, aside from doing all the things that I get inspired to do when I’m usually at work.

That said, I should get a move on, since it’s after 9, and precious time is wasting!

Well, then, let’s ask!

What kind of blogs do you like reading?

What kind of YouTube content do you like watching?

I like reading advice columns, gossip magazines, blogs by people I know or authors I enjoy, online comics, and occasionally some political or feminist magazines.

I like watching videos on Minecraft (particularly the server Hermitcraft), lifestyle vlogs, one vegan channel that is supported by science, how to YouTube videos, one nail art channel and the associated spin-off channels, and channels by people I know or have online connections with.

I really like blogging about whatever comes to mind on a particular day, even if not everyone will find it entertaining. I don’t mind getting sidetracked in the middle of a video and telling a story that may only be tangentially related to the topic at hand. Maybe not everyone finds it as entertaining as I do, but I suppose that’s okay. I can’t please everyone.

I am a mother of two, a wife, a fur-mama to four, and a bird grandma. I have trained as a truck driver, I have driven city busses, I have programmed for computers, designed websites, hosted communities, wrangled writers, and now design digital and printed materials in my Day Job while developing a YouTube channel and working on my blog during my off times. I have written and published novels, novellas, short stories, and gotten paid for them. I have read until 4 am because I couldn’t put the book (or ereader) down.

I have quite a bit to say.

So, what would you like to hear?
