June 30, I was honored to be a participant in Shannon Green’s Inspiration Conspiracy video hop. I was invited early this year and since then I have done a major sprint to learn new technology. I was not born with a mouse in my hand and haven’t had jobs that required me to learn much more than very basic computer skills. Shannon’s invitation meant I needed to “learn” youtube and I needed to learn to shoot a video in a tutorial, over-the-desk style.
Shannon was a remarkable and encouraging teacher and cheerleader. I created a video about making tie dyed bookmarks for Inspiration Conspiracy. To date, it’s received over 1300 views, which is a lot considering I’m completely new to creating videos and I don’t really know what I’m doing.
Since June 30, I’ve been recording how to and instructional and show-and-tell art videos daily. I’m steadily improving my skills in Movie Maker; learning to edit, add and control music, add photos, and other cinematic skills.
I’m also working full time so there’s that as well as this….
I also launched a yoga practice over the past month and a half. I’m 45 days into a daily yoga ritual. Whether it’s Goddess Pose or Hero Pose or Yoga for Complete Beginners (I am raising my hand- that’s me) or Yoga for Anxiety ( a personal favorite), starting my day on a mat has worked wonders for my physical and mental health. I’m really grateful to Adriene at Yoga With Adriene. She is my personal yoga trainer.
I realized last night, I’d allowed my blog to lapse. And I don’t want to lose connection with my writing again. Did I mention launching a youtube channel takes a lot of time?
Thanks for reading and allowing me to be a part of your day!
