When you start anything new you will immediately encounter the reality that you’re relatively terrible at it.
Now, I use the word “relative” because, like most things, your new level of skill is relatively “bad” when compared to others. But, this isn’t the point.

I’m just inside what I feel like is the final lap for my 365-day YouTube challenge, which I started (and rebooted) back in November of last year.
In 2 months I’ll be there and I know, at this point in time, that I’m going to make it. But, man… it’s been one helluva grind.

Yesterday was kind of a neat day as I decided to personally invest some capital into Bitcoin and cryptocurrency at large.
It’s 100% due to my brother’s influential remarks, his research, and most obvious is his amazing financial returns that he’s already experienced. He’s gone “pro,” essentially, at this point in time and I’ve been watching him make calls and trades daily.

My brother recently got a new 360 VR camera via Garmin called Virb 360. You can see a number of his tests below:

This is a question that I’ve gotten more and more the longer that I do a bit of YouTube myself and I’ve internalized a number of rote answers that do just fine.
But recently I saw this article straight from the horses’ mouth and I thought it would be useful for other folks. Essentially, the 4 main reasons are:

One of the things that I appreciate about some of the relationships that I’ve built over time is the fact that we “check in” pretty frequently.
In some instances I do this daily (multiple times a day… almost a consistent messaging thread(s)) and for others it’s not so much… perhaps once a week.

This junk is so fascinating.
My wife has understood and experienced this phenomenon for a lot longer than I have and explained to me that “Koreans just make eating look so good…” … … …

The other day I unboxed a new product that I had full intentions of using liberally, a new 360 VR camera from Vuze.
My hope was that not only could it create a new experience on the vlog for my subscribers but that it also could allow me to insert myself into a nascent new economy that has a lot of promise and opportunity.

I’ve spoken on the topic of “indie projects” quite a few times on the blog but I’ve never done it via the vlog and so yesterday I thought I’d capture a few candid thoughts.
I mention mnml app (releasing soon) and Desk App (v3.1 was released recently)! This is also the longest vlog that I’ve ever put together, coming in north of 22 minutes. Yikes.

A few months back YouTube opened up a new feature on their mobile apps that gave content creators the ability to live stream with one major catch: You had to have at least 10,000 subscribers to do it.
I didn’t mind this threshold, at the time, and I considered it a bit of a “stretch goal,” if you will. But recently they’ve dropped it to 1,000 which means that it’s been enabled on my device:
