Twitch Profile Tutorial

My First YouTube Tutorial

As someone with a passion around adult learning, I’ve always wanted to get some experience in using video within that realm.  There’s just been one problem – my lack of experience with video creation & editing.

So using my Destiny clan’s shift into online game streaming on Twitch as an impetus, I whipped together a little something to help the boys make their Twitch profile special.

What do you think?  Did it come across as professional?  I want your feedback!  All of your feedback!

On Invincibility or Lack Thereof

When I was young, I was always on the go. While I might be slowed from time-to-time, I couldn’t be stopped. Challenges were speed bumps, not walls. My teens were simply a transition to my early twenties. Life was grand.

And poof. Here I sit, with a bum wheel, and a sudden realization that I’m truly not invincible.

Oh how I miss my invincibility.

Sure I’ve had my fair share of calls from different financial institutions advising me that their crack team of security specialists have discovered something and therefore I need a new card. And while that’s always been a headache at the time, I’ve always appreciated that added sense of security when it comes to my money.

Unfortunately, today is the day that all changed.

While getting some of my financial house “tidied” this morning, I did my usual check of banking and credit card statements online to ensure I knew where I not only stood money wise, but to ensure that the charges were all legit. That’s right, even though I’d never had an issue, I’ve always tried to stay on top of everything to ensure I was always above water.

And that’s how I found it.Read More »
