At times it’s good to start again. To shake hands a afresh and reintroduce ourselves. I’ve probably shed a skin or two since the last time we did that.
Around 8-9months ago I posted a video on YouTube; a brief introduction to both myself and what I was hoping to achieve on the channel. Since then all that’s followed is radio silence.
I filmed more clips, I planned more videos, yet when it came to editing my laptop was just too slow. Trying to play tracks, I found they jumped and froze and shut down my whole computer. In time I gave up and gave in. Deciding I would try again once I’d saved up enough for a new laptop.
*I should say here that regardless of video-editing-abilities a new laptop was very much needed anyway. Among other glitches, it had a habit of shutting down whenever it pleased. Which frequently had me watching the clock (as it slowly rebooted and told me what it couldn’t recover) huffing in exasperation, head in hands.
Now the day has come where I finally possess the necessary technology to follow up my last video. So here it is! Something of a slow, rambling, mildly tipsy, sometimes-tripping-over-my-words Q&A …I know, I know, I’m really selling this to you. But what can I say, it seemed a good place to begin on the channel. I just have a lot to be desired when it comes to enunciation and enthusiasm. I will work on that.
Disclaimers and apologies aside. Why not pour a cuppa (or mug of mulled wine), pull up a seat and let’s get ourselves re-accquainted.
Also to reiterate the points I made at the end of the video (my goodness, congratulations if you make it that far!) I would love to hear your thoughts, opinions, questions and queries on what you’d like me to answer and explore on the channel (or on this blog), who you’d like me to collaborate with and what you’d generally like to see. Going into the New Year I really do not intend on it being another 8 or 9 months before I upload again!
