Why starting a blog between two friends does not always work

When you start a blog or really any business you need to have structure. In order to have success to have to do several things.

The first thing that you have to do is to post regular content and that content has to be original. ………………………………………………………………………..

Okay seeing that is blog is a completely personal blog I am going to go out on a limb and that I am having a problem. With the little interaction that both my blog and my YouTube channel get little views. Because of that I am going to focus on the one that I like more. That is YouTube. As of right now I really like making videos and they get some views. However the whole technology writing/industry is bloated with lots of businesses and business wanna bees.

I need to find a new market. One that is not bloated.

Freewrite #2

Here I am again doing another free write. They are not that bad. I really like that they let me reflect and just write down whatever is on my mind. The only things that I do not like about them are that you have to write it down and that takes time. It also hurts your hand. Well it is official I am going to the 8 and 10 o clock class times for APUSH tomorrow so I can do my presentation. I wish that it was with my normal class however I am not too picky and a least I don’t have to do it on Friday. I will also have more time if I need it, however I would because I am going to keep my presentation short and to the point so my fellow classmates do not get bored. We did like 4 today in history and the first two were really boring. So when it get home I need to type this up so i can read it later and i need to do my history project on the future of energy,. I think that it is a really fascinating topic. I can’t wait to dig deeper into the whole thing so I can learn lots and do lots. I was watching a video about the future and I really ho9pe that technology comes out in the future. When I type this up I will put the video below. Well looks like I am almost done. I only have two more days of my junior year of high school and then I will be a senior. So excited WWWDC or the place that apple unveils their products is on June 11. I am so glad that after they refresh the line up my family will get a new Apple computer. No more windows computers that die in a few years

Here is the Video:

Video Editing. What kind of Computer do you need?

In this day and age many people are starting to create video content. This included for home use, YouTube, and many other places. While many people may want to start video editing there are a few things that he/she will need to get.

1. A Computer

-This Computer does not need to be a desktop computer. You could use a laptop or even a tablet like the iPad. However If you are using a windows computer, you should be using a quad-core and at least 4GB of memory.  You can do video editing on a Dual Core computer however it is just slower and it will take longer.  You can use Mac OSX, Windows, or Linux.

2. A Camera

-There are many camera’s these days.  You can get small video camera’s, large video       camera’s, point and shoot digital camera’s, DSLR’s, and professional video camera’s. While all of these are great how do you know which one is right for you?

  • Small video camera’s: These will usually run you about $50 to $100 dollars and the majority of them shoot in HD. However they do not have a lot of memory and will run out fast if shooting in HD.
  • Video Camera’s: These are the dedicated video camera’s that most everybody as heard of.  They can have HD video recording, and most of them record to either flash, cassate tape, or SD card.  These are the best dedicated video cameras. If they have a firewire port you can also use them as a webcam. (This is the best way to live stream an event)
  • Digital Camera’s: These are your most common camera’s.  Only recently have these camera’s been able to do HD video recording. These camera’s will run  anywhere from $10 to $600.  These are the best all around camera’s for the average consumer
  • DSLR’s: These are the big bulky camera’s that professional photographer’s use. They have control over the tiniest of details and are very good at taking videos as well as pictures. DSLR’s will run you $200 or more depending on the brand and the quality of the product, as well as the features
  • The Professional Video Camera: These are the camera’s that TV stations use. They are not for the average consumer. These will cost you $2,000 or more

3. Software

In order to make you video, you will need some sort of video editing and even photo editing software. For my video editing software I use Power Director 7. It is inbetween Windows Live Movie Make and Sony Vegas Pro. For my photo editing software I use GIMP (an open source image editor) and Microsoft Digital Image Pro 9.  If you use Mac OSX you can use iMovie which is a free video editor. If you want a more professional video editor then you have Final Cut Pro X.

Extra-terrestrial

He names the following programs:
