So I just spent a lot of money on video gear and assorted accessories. It’s not all here yet, but it will be soon.
I’ve been kind of busy the last couple of days with other things, so I haven’t gotten a lot done. On the other hand, it feels like I got a lot done, for some reason.
It’s kind of surreal to see my “SawStop Saved My Thumb! What Happens Next?” video get so many views so quickly. The last I looked, it was over 113,000 views in a about 3 weeks. That’s kind of crazy, at least for one of my videos. That makes it my 5th highest viewed video, and the other videos have been out for way longer.
I’m sure most of you know by now, but I’ve got a new video out, so be sure to check it out. But I wanted to blog about some geek stuff.
Sometimes it’s hard to be a YouTube content creator. You have to come up with a new idea, figure out how to present it, then film it and edit it so that people won’t lose interest and stop watching. Not to mention coming up with a thumbnail and title that hopefully will interest people, without misrepresenting what the video is actually about (clickbait). But that’s not what this post is about.
I’ve got a new article up with some tips I learned while assembling my SawStop PCS.
Sometimes, when engaging in a creative endeavor like making videos, writing books, or making music, there comes a time when you just hit a wall. Full stop. WTF am I doing, how did I get here, and can I go home now?
Today I tried again to clean some rust and smudges off my SawStop PCS’s cast iron table, and put a protective coating on it. It continues to amaze me that I don’t seem to be able to exhaust the ways in which I can fail, or at least not totally succeed. But I continue to gain comfort in the knowledge that my failures are the reason I can create videos and articles that help other people avoid those failures.
I’ve got a new article up about how to setup a SawStop PCS T-Glide fence. I’d like any input you might care to give. I already have some changes coming, but I know it’s a work in progress.
I received a comment on my SawStop Saved My Thumb video, and I’m trying to come up with a good response. I’m hoping some of you might have some suggestions. And just so you know, contrary to what you might think, these comments don’t bother me. I usually come up with pretty good responses. But this one has me a little stumped.
Sorry for the sporadic posts lately.
It was time to say goodbye to a dearly beloved friend today - someone who had been there for me from the beginning, but always put me in place when I got out of line. Yes, it was time to say goodbye…
