Refreshing stale content

I gave my LJ profile and layout a tiny bit of love and attention. I’ve refreshed a few of my internet accounts in my profile, and updated the links listed over in the sidebar, so they’re no longer dead as doornails.

I’m going to try not posting my YouTube updates here, since they feel like more noise than signal. What do you think?

Oh, and I’m now streaming on Twitch on Tuesdays, because while I may usually be behind the times, I like to think I bring something particularly Skippy-like when I do show up. :)

I’m making a note here, huge success!

I’m really digging vlogging, and I’m pretty shocked about it. I considered it a couple years back, and for several reasons – not the least of which was trying not to step on my stepson’s toes – I decided against it.

I’ve since reversed that decision.

I haven’t committed to an update schedule or a limited subject matter yet; that may come with time (editor’s note – since then, I’ve committed to a schedule!). The same goes with ads and making money from it, if enough people want to watch my face and listen to my voice, I don’t mind making a little money from it.

All of the fiddly details aside, I am really, really enjoying it. I’m having fun recording my thoughts, making faces at the camera, and putting that goodness up for people to see. I feel like I’m letting people in, which is hard, without having to actually interact, so it’s easy. Yeah, I’m cheating.

Ah, well. There’s a link to my cheating in the upper-left of my writery page, so make with the clicky if you’re interested.

Here come the bullet points!

Without further ado…

  • I saw Star Wars – The Force Awakens on a too-rare date with my wife. I loved it, despite and because of its flaws. It’s Star Wars. No, I’m not going to spoil it.
  • My holidays were pretty fantastic, and included taking the wife to work’s party in San Francisco.
  • Vlogging has been chugging along as well. I’ve started editing the damn things, so who knows where it’ll go from here! YouTube channel is here.
  • I re-read the entire novella yesterday, and contacted the artist that I want to do the cover. It’s time to make those creative decisions that have been impossibly daunting. It’s time to move toward the mountain.
  • I urge you not to make New Year’s resolutions. I urge you to do what makes you happy.
