Hello and welcome to the Captain’s blog!
Exactly two years ago is when I consider creatively the best time from my subscriptions.
Amazing videos were being produced each week by channels like Pun Diddley, The EntrePUNeur, Adler Davidson, Blimey Cow and others. Also there is one other channel that was in this creator high that really made an impact on me, Bad Missionary.
My friend Gret Glyer who at time lived in Malawi, Africa ran a weekly show where he talked about topics about America and hearing his perspective of things from living in Africa.
I first found him through Kevin McCreary when he published “What it’s actually like to live in Africa” video.
Gret typically isn’t a vlogger but he tried something different then regular setup for once.
The video is mainly him vlogging about his day and his activities.
When I first saw this I realized Hey, he’s vlogging in Africa about his life and experiences and I thought it was so cool and I said, that’s what I wanted to do!
At that time I had done a little bit of vlogging just really getting started. It wasn’t until last May when I had a dream about vlogging in the Middle East that really gave me the boost in making vlogs.
Two years later I have greatly improved thanks to people like Casey Neistat, Chris Howard and TwinSauce (who funny enough watched Gret’s videos at the same time I did.)
Vlogging is my passion and I want to get better at it. My dream would be overseas full-time as a vlogger and I’m certainly talking steps to make that happen.
Since then Gret started a fascinating app called “DonorSee.” It’s a charitable giving app but your money goes right to person in need instead of going through another party.
Big news! I will be going to Vidcon! I’m hoping to learn more about vlogging, make connections and see friends. It’s gonna be awesome!
As I like to say, Live Long and Prosper and May the Lord be with you always!
