It’s been a while, it’s true. Nearly a whole month since my last post. Several things happened. I went to NY for a week. I went to BookCon. I vlogged…terribly. I tried to save the edited vlog…and it failed. Ten times. Jeez!
I also thought about my blog and the future of it (eck! future!) and realised for the amount of times I actually post on it, it’s not worth spending out nearly £100 every other year just for hosting/security/domain, that sort of thing, when it gets maybe 10 posts a year. Sigh.
Which is sad because it’s been my baby, something I created, since…well, 2013? Something like that. I know, not long in the grand scheme of things, but my youtube channel became more of a thing for me. To be honest it’s not like I get much interaction on EITHER platform, but for some reason on youtube I feel more involved, because when I see the views, I know people are watching. Whereas on here, I get maybe 10 views. Not to say I don’t appreciate them, because I made friends via this blog and it’d be a shame to waste that. And it’s my fault I don’t post much. But motivation is key and without that then these blog posts just read like me complaining about stuff, and while I could do that to my hearts content…I’m pretty sure it’s not entertaining. Sure, it’s MY blog, I can “do what I want” but no, I can’t. Because if I did that then I’d never get anywhere. Ha. Sigh. Sad sigh.
Whenever my hosting plan contract comes due I’m going to go over to the free WordPress and hope things go smoothly. I love this theme. Hell, I PAID for this theme. But who knows. Maybe I’ll keep the domain. If things don’t look up by next May (when I think my hosting plan ends) then…I’ll let you know what happens.
At this point (sorry, diverting to BookCon again), I think it’s too late to really talk about my adventures. It’s been welllll over a week and my memory is hazy. I didn’t even vlog properly throughout. I started pretty well, but I rarely “checked in” over the weekend and the camera work is shoddy. Mostly due to my insecurity about vlogging in public. Kinda like “if I don’t make it obvious I’m filming and talking to a camera, maybe people won’t notice?” so I don’t keep it steady. WHAT AN IDIOT. Anyway, It’s all practice, I suppose. Maybe vlogging publicly isn’t my thing.
I know a couple of you asked me to vlog, and I did, but I don’t know if or when or ever the material will reach the light of day. Besides, 90% of the vlogs are via instagram stories. If you saw those, then you already know what I got up to. If you didn’t…I’ll try and post pictures soon if you want me to.
