Is video blogging just a hobby for me or something more? It’s a question I ask myself a lot lately. You see I am at a crossroads, for my own mental well being I need to figure out the answer to that question. If’s it just a hobby, then I need to get on with my life, try to climb the ladder and make as much money as I can, be content and evey once and a while just video stuff. Or…..I decide that maybe I can make a living by doing video and try and do something about it. Step out on a limb and go for broke. I gotta be honest, it’s that whole “broke” thing I worry about.
You see I know in my heart that no one and I mean no one is going to pay me to vlog about my life. I will never make money off the “batman geek”. I have accepted that. Oh, at one time I had grand plans, and no I don’t do drugs. But I did entertain the possibility that I could make money by me being goofy. Heck, it’s part of the reason I called myself “The Batman Geek”. But I realized that I am not that interesting. At least not on video. In person, I am freakin awesome. Trust me.
But with all that said, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that because of “Batman Geek” I could make some money by videoing.(is that even a word?) I mean, I have had some people come to me recently to ask about filming stuff for them. Now, I am not getting paid for the stuff, (well I kinda got paid for the stuff I did for work, I got comp time and got to film on the clock) But the point is, people are starting to think of me. Which is cool. Now if I can start to make some money on the side….that would be even cooler (ok, I know that’s a word, but I am not sure if it is in this context) (shrug)
Well the bottom line is that I have not made up my mind yet. But recently while listening to this song. (which is freaking great by the way and you can buy it from Amazon for only .99, a bargin!) Anyway the song made me realize something very important. What is that? Well if you have already seen the video post, you know what it is. And if you haven’t watched the video yet. Go do so now! Oh, in case you are wondering most of the clips in this video have never been seen because they wern’t “good enough” (that’s what I thought at the time but now….who knows what I will uncover!)
Here’s to vlogging! And if you don’t know, I got a new phone. It does video, it’s crappy video, but it’s video. So I have created a mobile vlog site where I upload 30 seconds of video a day. That’s right, a daily vlog!! It’s not really good, but with all the good stuff out there now, doesn’t watching and subscribing to a crappy mobile vlog seem…right? Sure it does! So go check that out too!
