So, a while back I recorded a video as part of an application to be a technology tester. Get free stuff and try it out and talk about it? Sure! Sounded good to me, hence this little video was made. Terrible camera quality (filmed on my phone) and no good lighting, and me fumbling through what I wanted to say.
Fast forward to earlier this year
And I happen to get a notification someone I knew had written a comment on the video. Honestly I hadn’t even remembered it was still up and live, I had planned on taking it down as soon as the tech reviewer gig didn’t come through. What was interesting was that it had 7500 views. Like really? Something I had made no effort to promote or share was clicking over views higher than I had ever imagined possible!
Checking back in today to use it as a sample of a tight-arse tuesday post, and it sits at just over 7900 views. Makes me think there might be a potential opportunity to do reviews for stuff that I buy from the perspective of a graphic designer.
It also gives me the idea that the ideas I have on the back burner for crazy projects might be way more popular than I had previously thought. They are all self indulgent projects of stuff I just want to try out or do, or things that amuse me, so don’t expect refined works of art and prose. 😉
Well, the ALMOST story of being a tv presenter. I had heard of a call out by the ABC for a pitch for a late night cabaret style show slotted for Friday nights to sit before RAGE. Back then, an opportunity like that seemed worth pitching for. I knew how much they were looking at […]
So another year is upon us, and I am back with a few New Years resolutions, aside from the usual – eat better and exercise more, I have been thinking I need to get another side hustle happening to bring in the money. I was given an inheritance recently which has allowed me to upgrade […]
So, I thought this image was a fairly good example of how most of us look in the last few days before payday (especially if you are paid monthly) and the first few days after the pay has come through. I think we have all been in the tins of beans for dinner situation, or […]
A little mental health reward for myself. A 3kg coffee table book of heavy metal and hardcore music band graphics? Oh yes. Best part is, as a Graphic Designer I can claim this back on tax as a reference book. Sweet! It is the first purchase I have made for myself in as long as […]
I have added a gig on Fiverr that covers off the donation/tip jar that I have mentioned in other posts. Shameless I know, but it can’t hurt to ask! I plan on adding further gigs covering off design and other projects I have skills in. Visit The Debt Free Designer Tip Jar
