Teach Your Kids to be Scientists

Youthful curiosity is a good thing…

Kids are curious…we should foster that. I do my best to encourage my kiddos in things they are interested in. My oldest seems to want to be a scientist…so this day we built an elevator out of a cereal box.

Giving Away Free How-To Photography Booklet to Families and Colleg Students

Seeing these kinds of Good Samaritan actions warms my heart…

Jared Polin is a photographer I follow on YouTube. He is giving away (for free) a photography booklet to (first) those whose kids’ schools closed for a few weeks and (second) college students whose college closed.

Please share with anyone you think might be interested. (he’s a really good photographer)

My Reaction to a Cody Wanner SHOUT OUT!

Getting a shout out from another creator is always fun…

Again, this video was up before I deleted my last channel and a shout out from a (now) bigger creator drove some folks to my channel. It was just kinda cool to get a shout out back then. I think Cody’s channel exploded just after this.

What does Cody Wanner mean with FIND YOUR YOUTUBE VOICE???

Everyone has their own style, voice, story, etc…have you thought about yours?

Before I deleted my previous YouTube channel, I had started making these videos and stumbled across Cody Wanner. He started a daily Vlog and was able to keep it up for a year…crazy right!!

I really enjoyed his channel and watching him find his way to his core message (one of “encouraging the doers” as he says) and the #nosmallcreator movement was quite unique. I made this video as a “thought piece” of sorts, and it had actually caught his attention and he shouted it out at one point, but the core message of what I am saying here is still the same.

If you start a vlog, blog, writing on Medium…you have to find your own voice and not try and imitate (too much) others that inspire you on any sort of medium. That can be tricky, but there is an audience for all sorts of folks. I realized that while Cody Wanner has a much faster paced, non-linear style…my “voice” or style of vlog was very different. Not bad, just different.

After you watch this…I’d encourage you to check out some of Cody Wanner’s early stuff…it’s lots of fun.
