In attempting to keep the “plan” for this vlog thing as minimalist as possible (in order to prevent perfection paralysis on my part), I’m not really putting together an editorial calendar.
Sure, once October rolls around, I’ll likely be talking about “seasonal” things (like Halloween, ghosts, and horror films). And when we pass through November and December there will undoubtedly be some sort of “holiday” content. But, for the most part, I’m just planning on rambling on for 3-5 minutes once a day.
Like I said, nothing fancy.
What I don’t want to do is bore you to death.
See, there’s really no reason for me to do this if no one other than my mother is going to bother watching it. (Sorry, mom.)
I work best when I’m doing things for someone else’s (potential) benefit. When there’s a chance that what I’m doing will definitely have some sort of impact (hopefully positive!) on someone’s life. It’s why I just about all of my Facebook posts are open to the world. It’s why I’ve (sporadically) maintained multiple public blogs.
Judging by past experience, the best way for me to help myself is to help (or, at least, entertain) others.
Very, very rarely do things I do solely for myself hold my attention for any length of time. Definitely not for 100 days of cranking out content.
That’s where I’m going to need your help.
Since all y’all are the ones who will be seeing these videos first (or, at least, having the option to see them… I’m not going to go all Clockwork Orange on ya…), I want it to be stuff you’re interested in.
I’ve had many conversations with many people over the years–and if you’ve bounced here from my Facebook feed, you’re probably one of those people–and accrued a lot of anecdotes and even some actual knowledge, maybe some wisdom.
This is your chance to pick my brain or challenge me to learn something new.
To help me get out of my comfort zone a little more.
To make this more than just me sitting in my apartment talking to no one. (Which I do plenty already.)
Even better: I actually want some of you directly involved.
Most of my time is spent alone these days. Often, I long for the “good ol’ days” of having a passel of people just down the hall that I can shoot the breeze with at all hours. I see this as a chance to take that idea to a new level.
Many of you do awesome things. Much more actively awesome things than I do. Things that I genuinely think lots of people out there in the world would be very interested in.
So, if there’s a topic you want to talk about–something you’re working on or something that really puts the wind in your sails–I want to sit down with you (either in person or virtually–yay! Technology!) and chat about it for a little while.
Then I want to put it out there in the world.
It may even be neat for a few of us to get together, run our own little panel discussion.
I don’t know… I’m game for pretty much anything that you’re interested in.Come Ask a Question Here
