Well, as promised.. there are going to be changes coming to the blog and the You Tube channel. Yes, I am going to fully launch the You Tube channel as an extension of the blog. Sort of like the podcast was. I am liking the format of video and it is going to allow me to express the spirit of the blog via video.
I am still working out the details, but the videos from the channel will be in the blog as well as subscriptions on You Tube. Yes, I am going to ask for everyone to subscribe.
Reason for the subscription. I have been doing some homework on this and looking at what one would consider a good You Tube channel. Read.. lots of subscriptions and good content. What happens is that they start bubbling up to the top of the You Tube world. I am not being narcissistic here.. My goal is to get Scouting and related topics on top. Just like when we had the podcast, the more downloads and subscriptions one had the closer to the top of the list the podcast got. In order for us to keep Scouting on top.. we need to promote it. I have said it many times, I think it is up to us to deliver the promise of Scouting and do it using multiple media.
The format for the channel will not just be me reading the blog. It will be an outdoor related channel. Gear, Tips, Trip reports etc. And thrown in there will be Scoutmaster musings and minutes. Character, Leadership, and tips on Scoutmastership.
The Blog will be enhanced with this addition and I am excited.
So why has there been a delay and gap in blog entries?
My computer crashed and crashed hard.. blue screen of death kind of crash. It was toast. A friend of mine rebuilt it adding a super huge hard drive and some computer things that make it go faster. I am not a computer guy.. a good user, but do not ask my how it works or whats inside. Anyway, now that I have everything reloaded and set up.. it’s time to get going again.. and here we go! No more delays and hopefully no more crashes.
If there is anyone that can recommend some cool video editing software.. please let me know. I am currently using Windows Movie Maker, but know that there is some neat stuff out there. Rule #1. It needs to be easy to use.
Drop me an email, or leave a message in the comments section.
Stay tuned.. the Re launch and all the details are coming soon.
Ready for RE LAUNCH.. in 10, 9, 8, 7….
Have a Great Scouting Day!
