Happy Monday, Y’all! I woke up thinking today would go one way and then it took a hard left. Woke up to workmen running up and down my trees with saws and things, sat down to put a few finishing touches on some video edits and upload my newest episode of Go Marta, GO! to IGTV and schedule the YouTube premiere for tomorrow.
That is until iMovie and IGTV decided to try my patience today.
The amount of calming breathes I’ve taken today to troubleshoot the loading of a 30 minute video could fill the sails of a pirate ship running from her Majesty’s Navy. (Ugh!) However, I persisted and decided that today we’re gonna call it a win that I got the episode posted to YouTube.
Today’s excitement reminded me of a few things:
- The life of a content creator is never dull.
- Y’all, free content ain’t really free. It comes out of our hides.
- Patrons are precious and we artists and creatives love y’all more than you know for supporting us.
Please tune in to this week’s episode of Go Marta, GO! – AMTRAK Stations in Arkansas and let me take you inside one of the little talked about features of my state.
