So due to an unforeseen and regrettable situation involving a lack of eggrolls in her system, Kayley can't come to the blog right now. Fortunately, she has a myriad of friends to summon from their Poké Balls to fill in for her, and today I am one such loyal fuzzy friend. Really I'm just a Growlithe with a nickname. I'm Liam Dryden.
You might know me from such achievements as "being chastised for watching My Little Pony", "Haha you liked Dream Street", "this gif", and many other little notes amongst Kayley's so far stellar attempt at BEDA.
I'm actually very envious of people who can commit to regular blogging, actually; I had a normal text blog a while back, but gave up on it after I got overly angsty (but now I have TUMBLR, where I incessantly post mostly .gifs of animals doing weird things with the tag "gpoy").
In fact, keeping up regular content in any shape is a massive Achilles' Heel for me, and many other people in my position. For those reading this who are familiar with my YouTube channel, you'll notice I haven't uploaded anything in over a month. And due to a need to make this entry more engageable, rather than go off on a self-indulgent tangent explaining why, I guess I ought to pass on to anyone who has been inspired by awesome BEDA writers like Kayley, one of the greatest lessons I've learned from other vloggers and bloggers and nerds (oh my); preparation.
Other people I know put a LOT of preparation into their schedule. Folks who upload videos weekly often have their next bunch of videos mapped out, or at least briefly noted down, weeks in advance. Some know they'll be doing something or going somewhere that will compromise their schedule, so they'll film and edit a whole bunch of videos at once, or they'll write a few blog drafts to systematically post later.
And if push comes to shove, they'll just get a friend to do it (HI KAYLEY).
These are just a few obvious examples, but preparation for content creators comes in lots of forms. If you're a beginning or aspiring blogger or videomaker, the best thing to do is figure out what method suits you; but for the love of god do SOME form of preparation, lest you end up in a blank funk of next-to-no content like me!
Alright, Kayley just got back and the eggroll place was CLOSED. So I guess I'd better go console her over Skype. Nice talking to ya!
