Week in Review – April 2, 2017

The A to Z Challenge has begun! That’s the biggest news of the week, I’d say. Actually, I had a very busy week of work because it was spring break. Busy days of work resulted in less time for me to spend at home working on the blog and videos. Well, now I have a busy blogging and video-making month ahead of me. Let’s find out what happened.

Reading

I’m now at 72% on Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. I feel like I’m almost finished, although Avempartha is book two of this series, and only half of this book.

Writing

I may have an idea for getting time to write. We’ll see if it works.

Videos

Just three videos. One for my main channel and two for my science channel. But this week, there will be six on my science channel. The A to Z Challenge has begun, and I’m doing it on both my blog and science channel. Definitely subscribe to my channels if you want to see more.

Patreon

With the amount and type of videos I’m doing on my science channel, I wonder if anything will happen.

Languages

I didn’t study anything.

The Blog

The A to Z Challenge started, as I’ve mentioned before. This will be a busy month, definitely. I also started another blog, one for my science channel. Check out the blog and follow it if you’re interested in science.

Studying

Nothing.

The Next Week’s Goals

This week and for the entire month, I’m dedicated to the A to Z Challenge. Although there won’t be much in the way of books and writing in this challenge, it’ll keep me busy. I hope you’ll enjoy the content I provide this month.

How was your week?

A to Z Challenge Begins! The Jay Dee Show 26

I seemed to delayed with everything this past week. Well, here we are with some videos. And the A to Z Challenge has begun! I uploaded only one video for my main channel, but I have two for you from my science channel!

On my main channel, my regular weekly Authors Answer has continued. This time, I talked about the validity and legality of fanfiction.

Over on my science channel, I started off April with a bang. And it’s going to be a very busy month on that channel.

The first video I posted is the first of the A to Z Challenge videos, this time featuring the letter A and Alpha Centauri.

And then I made a video about what was to come in April and some changes I have in store for science news.

And that’s all for this week. Expect 6 videos a week from my science channel, and 2 or 3 from my main channel throughout April. It’ll be pretty productive!

Which videos did you enjoy? Let me know in the comments below.

Week in Review – March 26, 2017

I feel like I haven’t been able to get as much done recently. And this week is going to be very busy. So, what happened in the last week?

Reading

I’m now at 61% in Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. This week, I’ll have a lot more time to read, since I’ll be on the bus a lot. Expect a lot more done this week.

Writing

Nothing happening.

Videos

Only one video. I only managed one for my main channel. But my science channel is about to have a massive number of videos coming.

Patreon

I’m curious how much will happen in April with Patreon, considering the videos I plan to make. Different than what I’ve done before.

Languages

I didn’t study anything.

The Blog

Just the usual posts, though fewer than normal. But next week will be very interesting!

Studying

Nothing.

The Next Week’s Goals

It wasn’t an exciting week, but I’ll be having an interesting one coming up. I actually recorded three videos last week, but only posted one. I’ll be posting the other two this week, plus the first science video for the A to Z Challenge, which will also be done on this blog. That’s what I’m preparing for. I’m looking forward to it!

How was your week?

Where’s the Science?! The Jay Dee Show 25

So, you may be wondering what happened last night. I was editing a video, but I was so tired, I went to bed. I didn’t post it! I can’t this morning, because I have to go to work in 30 minutes. But I’ll post it later. Just think, an Authors Answer video on a Sunday. Weird.

So, the main channel had a whopping 1 video, while the science channel had nothing. Why? Well, I explained on Patreon why, but I wasn’t liking the weekly science news format. I’d rather make news videos whenever I can, talking about very current news. The A to Z Challenge is coming at the end of this week, as well, so I need to concentrate on videos for that. So, let’s get on with this week’s one video!

Seems there’s a theme. I talked about why I didn’t have many videos on my main channel. I also talked about my plans. Check it out!

And that’s it! I’ll be posting the Authors Answer video later today, I already have a Star Trek Project video done and ready to edit, and I have to get started on the A to Z Challenge videos for the science channel this week. Lots to do!

Week in Review – March 20, 2017

I’m still getting over my cold, but it’s not as bad as it was a week ago. It was at its worst last Monday and Tuesday. So, how productive was I?

Reading

I had an awful time reading. Just too tired most of the time on the bus. I did read 58% in Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan, though.

Writing

Nothing happening.

Videos

This was one area that was slow, thanks to my cold. I had only 2 videos on my main channel. As for my science channel, there was only 1 video, but this was as planned.

Patreon

I’m keeping up to date on this. But so far, nothing has been happening in terms of patrons. I don’t expect that for a while, though.

Languages

I did a bit of French!

The Blog

I felt slow with blogging, as well. March is turning out to be a slow month, but April will be busy. A to Z Blog Challenge is coming up!

Studying

Nothing.

The Next Week’s Goals

This week, I start on making the videos for the A to Z Challenge, and I need to do the research for the blog posts. I also need to prepare for next week. I work a lot more, so I don’t have as much time to record videos. I need to get some done on Wednesday.

How was your week?

Week in Review – March 13, 2017

Getting sick isn’t fun. I caught a cold, and this one has been sucking the energy out of me. That’s also a reason this is a day late. So, here’s what’s been happening in the past week.

Reading

I’m now at 50% in Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan, having finished The Crown Conspiracy, which is book one of the series.

Writing

Nothing happening.

Videos

On my main channel, I had a very slow week, having uploaded only one video. But it was a world building video, so it’s pretty significant.

On my science channel, I uploaded two videos, one of which is dedicated to a single science topic.

Patreon

I’m updating this regularly now, though I need to make sure I don’t fall behind.

Languages

Nothing in the past week.

The Blog

Nothing special happening, though thanks to my cold, I haven’t been very motivated. I just want to sleep!

Studying

Nothing.

The Next Week’s Goals

I need to work on some videos over the next two days. I should be getting a couple science videos done and several booktube videos recorded. I’ll also be preparing for the A to Z Blog Challenge, getting my topics all ready. There’s a bit of planning to do for this one.

Week in Review – March 5, 2017

Science has begun! I’m also getting the hang of using Filmora to edit videos. I like it, but my computer isn’t powerful enough to do all my editing with it. I can cut clips, but the video becomes accelerated around the cuts. It looks weird. I still use Windows Movie Maker for that, then use Filmora for overlays and picture in picture. It’s working out fine for now.

Reading

I’m now at 39% in Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. I’m making pretty good progress now. I’m hoping to get to around 50% this week.

Writing

Nothing happening.

Videos

On my main channel, I uploaded 3 new videos. I missed one because I was too busy.

My science channel now has 3 videos! It’s still right at the beginning, so the following is pretty small. I’m expecting a couple videos this week.

Patreon

Completely updated. It now has all new reward levels and information. I don’t expect much for a bit, at least not until I have a lot of good quality videos and more subscribers.

Languages

Nothing in the past week.

The Blog

I made it to 2,000 views in February! So, the streak continues. Hoping for a better month in March.

Studying

Nothing.

The Next Week’s Goals

I have an uncertain week. I know what my schedule is, but things can change. However, I do plan on having a few videos in the second half of the week. Also, blogging will continue as always.
