Day 8: A Day of Just Sitting and Learning


Project Looking Glass - Day 8

It’s another lazy day today again but lazy in the way that I’m able to sit back and really learn about blogging, watch iTune podcasts, and some TED.com videos. Of of the major problems that I have is that I am in LOVE with my work and I stare at it all day. I review my videos over and over again even though it’s already published to YouTube and Flickr. I stare at my photo that I just took for hours, and I’m on Flickr for hours, too! Mostly just waiting for my stats to go up. This is something I have to personally stop doing and work on in order for  me to have some semblance of a life. Right now I’m in Korea and I’m not working so I have literally all the time I need all day. When I get home I’ll be travel ling around the United States and visiting some great friends I haven’t seen in over 4 years. So I need to streamline my workflow so I don’t become overwhelmed with the daily ramblings of life.

Let me remind myself and you that this project is ONE video/photo/blog. But I want to share with you a videos and other media/articles I come across over the web. I have many subscriptions on iTunes and I came across Chase Jarvis. He has a philosophy that’s similar to mine which is to SHARE. EVERYTHING. And he does all this in video. And that’s awesome. I keep my videos to 90 seconds in length to fit to Flickr’s rules but might lengthen it when the time comes.

Chase and David (from Strobist.com) were talking about just doing a blog for the love of what we love to do. I love taking photos (though sometimes I want to kill myself in order to come up with something original and awesome and every time to outdo myself in some form or another) and I love teaching and sharing. I just do. And this blog is my forum for doing that. I also don’t really care about money all that much but for some reason stats is important for me. I haven’t figured it out yet, but I have an ego. This video here is long, sometime like over an hour – but packed with some great content.
