Acrylic Pouring and Social Media

There is no update on all of the invention projects.  Everything seems to be in a holding pattern.  Apparently, the world doesn’t work on my timeline <sigh>.

I have been keeping myself busy with art, Instagram (@activeartpassions), and YouTube.

It is really amazing that people do these things so well while working full time.  The YouTube learning curve so far includes:

Taking video, audio mixing (voice on video, voice overs, music), video editing, adding in special shots to make it more interesting if possible, go to the website that makes special thumbnails so people will want to click on your video just by seeing the little picture, affiliate links for products in the video (currently using Michael’s, Zazzle, and Amazon).  I don’t expect people to be clicking all over these now, but I do not want to have to go back to videos later and add them if  one of the videos get popular.

The videos are of something I would be doing anyway….or, maybe, they push me to do what I want to be doing and not procrastinate myself out of it.

I shall continue my home study courses in art, video production, marketing, and product development.  My sabbatical leave focused on new areas of study.

Behind the scenes look:  I do NOT naturally talk as fast as I do in the videos.  I speed up most if not all of the videos.  I also slow/speed up the music sometimes.
