The first steps

Happy to be learning and sharing

Hi, Well it has been a while since I started this blog and I had to go back and learn a few things so that I could bring you the information that I have learned, and the information that I have found. To start off let me tell you of the problems or some of the situations  so that you can learn from my trials and errors.   ok now I am a newbie and on-line  and with some of the equipment  that I need to do this blog.  This blog was to be a video  blog. So I found out that I can’t do that here. with a free blog I have to upgrade or get a widget.

Now mind you I understand and I hope that you will understand that to go into business and to make money you have to spend money; fine. I am working a full-time job that I will use to fund things until I can break way from that 9 to 5 and be independent. So I would suggest that you have a way to pay for all the things you will need to get started. the web is a friend and a learning tool. so use it to search and figure out what you will need. if you don’t have a job get one  or a part-time one so that you will have the funds you need.

Oh and let me say this I have made this blog for right now private I have not really invited any one to view because I still have a lot of things I want to add in before I really go public Adding a lot of content  so that you can follow and see the steps I am making in order to do what I need to do to get started with self employment. Then once I have a few blogs posted and more of the equipment I need to do a video blog. You can start off with the information faster than I did.

Now I know some of you may already have some of the things and information that I have to  collect  but bear with me and I hope this will be fruitful in the learning ,growing and the knowledge and the progression of the steps I take.

The camera, last summer I bought a Sony dcr-sr68 and I took it on a trip to learn and play with . I did some videos and they were ok not great. It had nothing to do with the camcorder it was me. Moving to fast and the sound was bad oh my goodness how bad. with the desire to do  interviews that was just not going to work. So back track and search what would I need and use. I had set up one interview but I could not do it with the sound quality just from the internal camera  sound.  I joined Vimeo ( check the website  out  very nice place) and there I learned that I need an external sound recording device. They recommend the Zoom H1 and another one that cost too much for me over $200. So I am settling for something close to the Zoom H1 . I am going to use the Olympus linear pcm recorder LS-10. and it cost me nothing . Wow!

Yes Wow. it is funny how life works. My daughter who is a student at Columbia College is taking a class there in radio and they have to use this recorder and it is in the tuition.

So free is great!  I was talking to her about having to look for and buy this Zoom H1 recorder and she tells me of the Olympus LS-10 she will get with her class. At this point  I am now playing with the recorder to see how it works.

I am also getting my personal look ready for doing interviews. and other little details that go with filming  and editing. So I changed my hair back to its black color.

All this alone can be over whelming at times but it is a challenge a way to change my life. and who is going to do that but me. If you want something you better go out and do it. God helps these who help themselves. you must take action.

Let me say this in closing this post. I am having fun learning all this new stuff. and I love the challenge  to grow as a person and to be someone you can count on to give you the information that one needs. Step by little step. I guess in a way this can also be seen as a journal of my steps to learn, to succeed in putting forth the action that I want to do as a goal and my part of the  journey.

I find inspiration  in many things the book The Secret also has help me. I would  suggest reading it and finding things that will help you motivate your self.  To implement change you have to improve self on many levels and  you have to start with how you think, and your wiliness to change and to see that change is indeed needed. I know you have heard this before but it is true. If you have been doing the same thing and not getting the things you need or want by doing the same thing, then it time to change the things you are doing to get a different result. This I think is the key. Life is trial and error. and error is not a bad thing all the time it is a tool for learning and growing. when a little child learns to walk he falls but he gets back up and takes another step. and he now knows how to walk.

So find books, websites, podcast, and people who can motivate, and inspire you to change your lifestyle and to have achievements in all area of your life mind, body and soul.

Finally to recap the important information here in. The camera a Sony dcr-sr68 make sure it fits your pc or mac. that is important too. The  external recorder Olympus linear pcm recorder, or the Zoom H1, Vimeo the website, and books or audio books of motivation. Also other books about getting mentally ready to be self-employed I have listed a few of the books and mentors I use in the categories. I will list more. That is all folks for now.

 you cannot nurture with out nourishment  what you do not nurture cannot grow.
