Look, it’s time we broke up, blog. It’s not you… it- it’s me. I just can’t go on like this. I’m cheating on you with a sexy Squarespace blog.
Nah I’m kidding, couldn’t leave you WordPress. I’ll give you another chance. I really, really gotta be updating this more but I’ve got so many different various internet threads running in different directions now it’s hard to maintain it all! I need some kind of internet weaving loom, if we’re keeping with the very poor internet thread analogy. At the moment I have-
My New Art Facebook Page (more on that later!)
The Isle of Raasay Facebook Page I run and produce.
Behind the scenes stuff (more on that… soon? I hope!)
Basically, I’m trying to juggle loads of different ideas and intrests, and I struggle to maintain I consistent presence here, which sucks because this blog has always been my baby. My weird, bizarre, inconsistent internet baby. But babe nonetheless! I still hope this place will act as a “hub” in the future that people can use to find all my work spread over all the various islands, enclaves and pirate-like coves of the World Wide Web. So what’s new? Lots of stuff!
I Have a New Website
No, you can’t see it yet. I’ve gone and bought myself a hosted domain running WordPress that I’m setting up as both a portfolio website and possibly a production company. It’s going to be slow, I’m going to take my time with it, but I want it to be a one-stop shop of all video and photography work I do, such as my hairdressing video and 3D video projects (more on that later!)
I Have an Art Page
Remember I used to post artwork here?! God those were the days eh? Well, I may still post the odd digital artwork here, but the majority of any pen and ink/drawn work I’m putting on my new facebook page. It’s been quiet for a couple of weeks now, but I’ve been busy with other stuff (more on that late- ok I’ll stop saying that). Keep an eye on that though for work in the future!
I’m Still Trying to Write a Book
Remember when I got pretty mildly famous for this for like 10 minutes? Well I’m still developing it. Reddit has been clamoring at my skull for an update, but I think that version of the story is dead, I’m afraid. It was only ever meant to be a test to see how people recieved my writing and the general idea. Also in a funny side note, I had people writing and complaining that I was incredibly arrogant because they read the last post I made about the story on here and thought I was being 100% serious-
Guess what I’m a famous writer now. Forget the bloody art, videos, games, vans, history blogs, podcasts, Let’s plays, notebooks in fact just FORGET IT ALL: I’m now legitimately Stephen bloody King. What’s more amazing is how I’m so humble and modest and also a genius.
Seriously. Clearly people don’t get sarcasm over text. Or maybe it’s just me. Either way, I got sort of burned out on that iteration of the story (ie. writing myself into a corner) but, I’m moving forward with the bigger, better version. It’s going to have islands, we got dog killing, it’s sexy it’s new and it is HOT. But that’s for another time. Seriously though if you’re reading this and enjoyed the story and want more, this is for the best. I love you so much for enjoy and wanting more of my story, but you’ll want it at its best, trust me.
I got a 3D Camera!
And boy, is it awesome. I got this beautiful little Ricoh Theta S a week or so ago and it’s honestly changing my approach to photography entirely. I bought it as a tentative plan involving the aforementioned production company to create 3D views and videos of various places on Raasay- castles, at-risk structures, unseen views etc. For example, here’s a full 360 view from the top of Dun Caan.
I’m Playing Minecraft Again!
And boy is it fun.
