VLOGGING: Back To The Future

I used to vlog all the time. Of course I did. But no one ever called it that back then. It was how many of us made videos in those days. Turn the camera on and see what happens. It was just the way it was.

Since then different video genres have come and gone, but nothing has been quite as enduring as the vlog. Unlike prank videos, sketch comedy videos, musical parody videos or anything else, the vlog can be made to suit the individual creator and his audience. It can involve travel or be performed from the comfort of the creator's favorite easy chair. With vlogging anything is possible.

So I guess what I am trying to say is I am going to try to incorporate vlogs into my video lineup. I started doing vlogs years ago. I just need to remember exactly how.

One of the worst mistakes to make with me is assuming I am clueless about whatever is going on. Quite often I will see more than I let on. For months I have been gathering information from my own experiences as well as that of my right-wing colleagues and I think I have pieced it together now. It is either leave YouTube quietly or be unceremoniously booted out on my ass. And I have made my choice - I am no longer posting on YouTube. From this day forward I will be a user but not a creator as far as YouTube is concerned. 

As Geek Wisdom, I spent a great deal of time building a brand. When I decided to use my own name, I had to start my YouTube career all over again. I enjoyed using my own name, but I kind of missed Geek Wisdom as well. So I brought her back. But her home is not YouTube any longer. 

When I decided to bring my alias back, it wasn't without careful thought. Just as when I decided no more new content on YouTube, it was done with very deliberate thought. If you wish to follow the continuing adventures of Geek Wisdom, she now resides here. It's always good to have a Plan B, and maybe even Plan C if you are feeling creative.
