World travel videos, photos, and blog.


Videos, Photos, Shop... Wha?

So traveling the world... fantastic opportunity... not something anyone can just up and do... blah blah blah. Sure, whatever. Even after deciding to quit my job and see some of the planet, I wasn't feeling very excited about the trip. I felt like I was leaving on bad terms. I'm running away from loneliness by taking a solo trip for eight months? What the heck is that?

Art and creativity have saved me so many times in the past. I needed a project to work on to inject some enthusiasm into my veins (thanks dude). My fantasy is to be able to write a lot while I'm on the road and if you're (un)lucky, it'll all be here for you to read. I'd also like to post videos along the way. How practical this will be is yet to be determined. I'm bringing a camera and a computer. I don't know if I'll have the time and energy to sit, cut videos, and post them to the web after sweating through a day of sightseeing. But I did want to set everything up in case I did get around to it.

From visiting other travel blogs, I've learned that everyone gets to a point where they're too busy enjoying their trip to worry about some web site. Afterall, it's my precious time and money.

Speaking of which, I also tried to set up a Shop page to maybe bring some revenue into the site. Right now, this site's just for my friends and family. But Filmgeneration started out that way and now we get hits from Antarctica. So you never know. The shop page also has a link to send me money through PayPal. If I ever post a blog that says, "Help... emergency... send funds", I expect you to whip out your credit card and help a brother out.

The Videos page links directly to my YouTube channel where I'll be posting vids. I chose YouTube due to its mass appeal and traffic, even though I hate the picture quality (I always minimize the size for better resolution).

The Photos page goes to a Picasa album that I haven't had time to test out yet. If I don't like it, I may switch to Flickr.

And finally, the Links page. It'll probably serve as a bookmarks page for my personal use but it may be useful to others.
