Monday has come and gone like a blurry thing that’s moving so fast you’re like “What was that? Was that Monday?”… Yes, sadly, that was MONDAY.
It’s late – and I’ve now got the whiteboard up. On it are lists of stuff to be done, long term goals, and an empty column for exercise… it’s been a busy day. EXCUSE!
You see, I’ve started working on the weekly VLOGS for the YouTube channel. As an editor of 20 years, I know how long it takes to edit 10 or 15 minutes of video. It takes time. As this is the first episode, it’s got to do some heavy lifting for the “quest”, also be a summary of my first week. It’s taking up a big chunk of time. It will be worth it. I want to ensure though that I can keep to the upload schedule of 4 videos a month.
Research indicates that a regular upload schedule will achieve a good subscriber uptake. Even if no one watches to start with, at least the content is up there, and being edited and gathered through out it. Just going through the process of editing the first video is demonstrating to me how much I need to shoot to be able to offer up something which is valuable to a viewer. I hope so anyway!
Another thing for today was I got a dedicated email address for MidlifeCoolness and I designed some very basic branding to the blank YouTube channel. It’s all ready for some content now.
Also, I contacted a Bristol based life coach today. We are meeting up in the coming weeks to discuss the project and hopefully start to work a plan out for me.
In terms of exercise, I fell slightly under my FitBit’s request for 10,000 steps. I think I’m nearly at 7,000, which considering the lack of an early rise again it’s not surprising.
Due to the time now (1am!) I doubt tomorrow will start early. We have plans to go for a long walk tomorrow – so that’s going to be nice. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us.
So, all in all not a bad day. Eat well, and stuck to the WW diet. Cooked a curry and checked some things off the lists.
Tomorrow is another day. Onward and upwards!
