I know it seems like forever since I last posted a video on the channel. I just wanted to hop over here and let you all know there will be videos/tutorials in the future I just haven’t had the energy to get anything filmed.
I will give you the short version of the last couple of months so you understand why the lack of videos.
I looked on the blog and it was March 11th that I last posted. That was right about the time I got sick, now that being said I had been sick off and on ever since the beginning of the year but in March I got COVID. I wasn’t that bad, not like when I got it when it first went around. This time mostly I was just exhausted (fever and congestion too) so I thought at the time I would be back to my normal schedule really soon.
Then as the symptoms started to go away I started to get migraines, almost constant migraines. I have learned that is one side effect of the latest round of COVID. is that some people that tend to get migraines that are almost constant after the disease. Some for a couple of months some for up to 6 or more months. I had about 6 weeks of almost constant migraines.
They are better now but I am still getting more than normal for me.
During this time I had to keep up as much as possible with my main channel (my minis channel) because it helps to pay the bills here. Something had to give and since this channel isn’t monetized it had to be the doll channel.
As a result of not feeling well and the headaches my depression has been making a comeback. So that is also slowing me down since it puts walls up that I have to work through to get anything done.
On top of this going on I had a major problem with my video editing software and had to change programs very suddenly. So I had to learn new software during the time I was having major migraines. Not fun. And since the program I was using for my video editing was part of a suite of programs this meant I also had to change my photo editing software and my music editing software. All at once. I had been using the old program set for over a decade so learning all new programs was not fun.
I have mastered them all well enough to get by at this point and I am slowly getting better at using them. Every takes me much longer to do now though partly because the video editor is much not only completely different but also much more powerful.
For the last 3 weeks I have told myself I would have a video ready for the doll channel for that week and so far it just hasn’t happened.
I have several ideas for videos I want to do and I am really hoping to get them filmed soon.
