Ever sat down to write your weekly/biweekly blog post . . . to find yourself gawking at the laptop screen? Annoying, ain’t it? That Wednesday post I normally write in advance was so not coming.
At this juncture, I’m awaiting the design of four e-book covers (was in the works but the $ ask is now too high, so they’re in limbo for the moment) plus the formatting of “Forever Poi” (soon to be in the works, but definitely on the table). A few new looks are on the horizon, not just with said books, but blog, too . . . hopefully. When those [finally] happen, here’s to a new approach and attitude.
In the meanwhile, ya got me. I was stumped and scratchin’ the ol’ noggin, wondering what the heck to post about. But then, lo and behold, as if a sturdy coconut tumbled from a palm tree and conked me on the cranium, it came. Eureka, the next post!
Why not provide one that features a few videos about . . . yup . . . what to blog/post about when . . . yup . . . you’ve got nothing to blog/post about.
So, my friends, I thought we’d start with a quick, straightforward one entitled “4 Mistakes You Make When Posting Video on Your Blog” by Rocky Walls. At a little over two minutes, Rocky provides some simple and sound pointers.
“How to Overcome Writer’s Block” featuring Jenna Moreci is kind of fun/funny. Perky and pretty, this woman talks fast . . . and talks a decent game, too. If you don’t care for “cuss words”, you may not want to tune in (but 3K+ viewers were fine with it). In fact, she has a few inspiring YouTube vids re writing, so give her a gander.
Diane Callahan’s “17 Cures for Writer’s Block” has a more professional approach, kind of like watching an informative program on the Discovery or History channel. It’s an easy 14 minutes to watch: the visuals are as crisp and clear as Diane’s soothing, instructive voice.
Cute animation and a wry sense of humor in four-minute “WRITER’S BLOCK – Terrible Writing Advice” makes for a worthy watch. And that terrible writing advice makes total sense—why not wallow in self-pity? <LOL> I’ll be looking for more of J.P. Beaubien’s stuff. He prompted a [much-needed] enjoyable chuckle.
You know what? I’m going to add that to the to-do list: make a YouTube vid. . . . As soon as I watch one on how to make one.
