Apparently when I moved the blog over to this domain I lost all my stats. Bummer, since the blog has been around for over five years. I did put in a help-request, but I’m skeptical that I’ll ever recover the stats from my old blog over on wordpress.com 🙁
In other news, I’m experimenting with doing some ‘How-To’ videos over on YouTube. For now I’m concentrating on making some photography videos, but eventually I would also like to make some pertaining to gardening, web-design/programming, and maybe some occult topics. I’ve only uploaded one video so far, I’m hoping to do at least one a month, hopefully more. My first video is how to take ‘Product Shots‘ without the use of anything special, just a Point-N-Shoot camera and household props/effects.
Some more of my lobelia flowers have come into bloom last week, so I may do something on macro photography next. I really want to get some shots of those flowers before the Las Vegas heat gets the best of them. And macro photography is pretty easy to do with a few inexpensive gadgets. Well, except for the camera itself – that’s kinda pricey 🙂
Another ‘thing’ I’m exploring is creating an ‘Amazon Store’ on this website. I’m not really sure how it works yet, but it seems like it might be a good fit to feature the things I use in the videos, how much/little they cost, and an easy way to get them. We’ll see if that ever happens and if I can make it look nice. Others (My older sister and some folks in a blogger MeetUP group here in LV) keep saying I need to look into ‘AdSense’ as well. It seems like it might be cool, but I wouldn’t want it to detract at all from what I’m writing about. I wanna keep the blog fun and easy going, not turn it into ‘just another job.’
Hopefully this new site will create positive vibes – Enjoy!
