Half Way There!

Yeah, now all of you who grew up in the 80s have a Bon Jovi song stuck in your head. And I’m not at all sorry about that.

If you’re reading this, then we’ve both made it to the 50th installment of this vlog thing that I’ve been doing since September. While it may not make a difference if I make it or not, I have so far… so that reason to celebrate at least a little bit, right?

This daily schedule is still a total bear. If I didn’t lose an hour or so a day to commuting (and those other 8 or so hours to sitting in someone else’s office) this would be a lot easier to pull off. As it is, all it takes is trying to keep up with other things I like (such as my TV shows and YouTube videos and reading) to keep this skating on the razor’s edge of missing a day.

I obviously consume too much to create like this on a daily basis.

I’m still fighting the regular urge to re-shoot, re-edit, and generally tweak things to make them perfect. It’s utterly frustrating, but I’m still winning that fight.

There are still a number of topics I’m shying away from. Ones that I tell stories about in person but just can’t get the flow right when I’m not getting direct feedback. It really makes me realize how much I get from an actual audience… imagining one just doesn’t cut it. (And your post publishing likes and comments, while awesome, certainly don’t help me during production.)

So, 50 down and 50 to go. That’ll bring us straight to the end of the year.

I’m still not sure what else I’ll be doing to close out the year but I do want to know what you have planned.

How are you going to make the last 50 days of your year totally awesome? Let me know in comments somewhere.

But first, watch me flail about a little in today’s vlog.
