Blog Stuff

3 Mar

I’ve been making minor changes around Lazy Happy Bored Happy Sad over the last week or so. Took some stuff out of the sidebar, added a footer. Nothing major really. Just trying to improve my little corner of the interwebs I so dearly call home. I also changed my handle from Wilhelmina Upton to WillieSun because I have it on Twitter and Tumblr and thought Gravatar should match. Not sure if I’ll keep it this way.

Even though my blog’s anniversary is in August, I really started doing this in February 2012, so for a little bit over one year now. Creating a blog has been one of the best decisions I made in a long while. There are people I met through this medium I never would have gotten to know and my life would be emptier without them, their stories, support and friendship. Yes, friendship. I may not have met any of them (btw, I hope you know who you are ;-)) in person – yet – but that doesn’t matter much. Through reading this blog, they probably have a much better idea of who I am than many people I meet IRL.


Today I had this crazy idea of making a vlog. No, don’t worry/get your hopes up, I haven’t actually gone through with it. I just tested my webcam and SLR to get a sense of what it’s like and if I could do it and so on. I still need to do some homework on this topic but I really want to vlog. “Am I crazy?”, you might ask. I say: “Probably yes!” But so many have done it before so why not try my hand at it. I am a little bit creeped out by putting my face on Youtube but I’ll probably get over it. What do you think? Do you have advice for this vlogging novice?

What else? Um, not much I guess. It’s already Sunday evening here which means I’ll have to get up tomorrow morning and get back to uni and my thesis. Yay NOT! Whatever, my due date is May 31st, then I’ll be a free woman, well, after I made my presentation that is, but whatever. I can’t wait for it to be the end of May because of obvious reasons and theatre! I love my part in this years play which is a little bit like Once Upon a Time. It’s called: A Zeitgeist in Fairyland and I’m playing a good fairy. I’m actually only in two out of 10-ish scenes but still. This part is awesome and because our director wrote it himself, there is a lot of room for crazy things! So. Much. Fun!

I think this is enough randomness for one post. I really just wanted to get the vlogging idea out here and see what comes back. Probably not much but I’ll still do it, once I figure out how and what to say.

    I would subscribe if you do a vlog. I’ve been thinking about doing a vlog or podcast myself. I don’t know if I could watch or listen to myself. I’ve been invited to guest host on The Awesome 80s Podcast. So I suppose I can see how I like doing that.
    I really enjoy your writing. So if you are half as good on camera, you will have an inredible vlog.

      I just realized that I am sooo far behind on reading. You didn’t happen to start one yet, did you? :-)

      If you’re going through my posts (as you’re clearly doing) you’ll fine one of my two vlogs on the site. I haven’t had time to do more so far.

      It’s fun and you should try it!

    I don’t think I’ve ever clicked through my reader to visit your blog (sorry!). I’m digging the look — I love green, it’s my favorite color. Your design makes me happy :)

    P.S. Lovelovelove the Liz Lemon gif!

      Nothing to be sorry for ;-)

      Green is also my favourite colour, as you may already have guessed. Happy is good!

      Liz Lemon is my spirit animal. She is one of my favourite TV characters of all time!

    Making improvements is a good sign, it shows others you still want to learn and grow as a person. Over the past week or so, I’ve been thinking of my own blog and what changes to make. . .still not sure what to do. Congratulations on the part in the play and I must admit that I do not watch any vlogs. I like the written word better; maybe because the thought of doing a vlog intimidates me too much. Cheers.

      I rarely watch vlogs too. Most bloggers I follow don’t even post their vlogs on their blogs unless it’s a rare thing.

      I think I just want to try it out and the things are short, like 2-3 minutes. However I’m with you on preferring the written word in general.

      To what conclusion did you come concerning your blog of you got to one at all?

    I have no clue about vlogs but I LOVE the idea. I hope you do do it, for obvious selfish reasons ;)

    • WillieSun March 4, 2013 at 08:34 #

      Selfish reasons are always accepted! I will most likely do it because I couldn’t stop my head from turning last night over what to say and how to do it so it’s probably gonna happen.
