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.

How was your week?

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.

How was your week?

Here Comes the Science! The Jay Dee Show 22

I’ve still been pretty busy recently, so not as many videos as I’d like. However, I uploaded 6 videos, 3 for each channel. On my main channel, I was able to do some regular videos, though I missed out on the Authors Answer video due to a very busy day and company being over. My science channel had its first 3 videos, including a science news video.

For the main channel, I started off with a brief wrap up for February and a TBR for March.

I then moved on to the World Building series with a video about how to create the planet.

And then the regular Retro Book Review. This time, it was 2010: Odyssey Two.

Moving on to the science channel, I uploaded a couple introductory videos and the first actual science video. Starting off is the channel trailer.

And then I uploaded a channel introduction video.

And then my weekly science news video. In this one, the background is kind of cheap-looking. I really would like a better quality camera, microphone, and backdrop. It was a pretty brief video, too. But check it out, please!

Over the next week, I should have 3 videos for the science channel and around 3 or 4 for my main channel. And of course, I’d love it if you subscribed to my science channel.

Let me know which videos you enjoyed in the comments section below.

Week in Review – February 26, 2017

Work continues to be busy, so I haven’t had much of a chance to do much else. But I did get a couple big things done today. It’s the beginning of a big project!

Reading

I’m making modest progress on Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. I’m now at 21%, but I may have a lot more time to read this week.

Writing

Nothing happening.

Videos

Big news here! But first, my main channel has had just one new video, the channel trailer. I used picture in picture for the first time with that video.

My science channel is now live! I uploaded the channel trailer today, and I’ll have a couple more going up this week. I’m really excited about this channel.

Patreon

In the process of updating it. Actually, I’ve done a bit of work on it already, but I still need to put up the new reward levels and a main information post about the Patreon page. It’s now for my science channel, as it will require better equipment and supplies for the videos.

Languages

I didn’t study anything, but I saw that Swahili is now available.

The Blog

The usual has been happening, but it’s turning out to be a very slow month for the blog. It may be the first month in more than two years with fewer than 2,000 views.

Studying

Nothing.

The Next Week’s Goals

A lot of effort will be put into videos this week, especially the science channel, as well as a new world building video. I’ve already recorded that one. I also aim to have a new start with the blog at the beginning of March. I need to get my priorities in order.

How was your week?

Here Comes the Science!

Finally, just two days before the end of February, my science channel has gone live. Science: Not Just a Theory now has its first video, a 30 second channel trailer. And here it is:

This video may only be 30 seconds long, but it took me a long time to edit. I did the title screen by itself (it’ll be reused) and instead of end card annotations, I used an old-fashioned annotation for the subscribe button.

In case you’re wondering, here’s a little information about what to expect. I will make regular uploads every Monday and Thursday. Mondays will be a video based on a science topic each week. Thursdays will be weekly science news. I’ll also upload the occasional video about urgent news. This week, expect a channel intro video on Tuesday, then a news video on Thursday.
