Ever feel as though you're just... 'there'?

Below is a comment that was just posted on my Facebook profile that I just had to share... This comment from a complete stranger totally made my day! It's amazing to think that I'm actually making a positive impact in someones life by posting video blogs on YouTube.

Hi, I apologize in advance if this is super cheesy, but it's something I needed to say. I've followed you on YT for a while now... a couple years and I have to say, when you started making videos again, it really inspired me. I'm at a point in my life where I am just stuck and listening to you about rediscovering yours... -Michelle

Rediscovering Self... (I really SHOULD be studying!)

I should be studying (I have a phych exam on Tuesday) but can't seem to separate myself from the internet!!! Since I met with Paul Robinett the other day (shot and uploaded 3 'live' videos to YouTube from the Starbucks in Canal Winchester), I've been trying to commit myself to my own words... To follow my passion with vengeance! He asked me the question "If you were a trust fund baby, what would you spend your time doing" My answer: Art. Simply creating! That's where I get lost... and ultimately find myself. I've often been at odds with my creative side, because I've never found a viable career outlet for my creativity... wait. that's not really true, let me say it this way: I wish that I could make a living creating art (better!). As a fine artist that's a pretty daunting task! I'm trying to pursue and connect with an e-audience instead of (or in addition to) the convention means of trying to get Galleries to represent my work or traveling the art show circuit (EXHAUSTING work!). This blog is a part of that process of building an audience and maybe even more-so, connecting with like-minded people. I hope you enjoy reading my blog posts... Please leave me a comment if there is something in particular you'd like me to write about... OH! and if you have blogs you think I might be interested in let me know. Thanks!

Ok, I'm going to start writing a Blog (above image is me drafting ideas for wonderful content)... At least I'm going to TRY! I would LOVE to know exactly what you'd like to read here! If you're here to begin with then you probably already know me... so what would you like me to post? I'm thinking of Blogging (& Video Blogging) my life... My triumphs and tragedies.... the 'real' stuff... I enjoy the creative process of writing and video blogging (esp. creating short films), I'm a father of a beautiful 12 year old daughter and a 15 year 'rock star' son... I'm going back to school to get my degree (probably in education). I'm an artist with an entrepreneurial spirit and LOVE to inspire people! Let me know your thoughts. Ok... this post is a bit disjointed (certainly not a reflection of the eloquent Blog posts to come!) But I guess I really don't care... after all, as of this moment I don't have one single follower! (***enter uncontrolled severe feelings of pity & impathy***) Now just click that little follow button and engage. Thanks!!!!
