New Videos

Yes, video*s*. Plural. With me beginning a week-long hiatus from baseball games starting with the game in the entry I published right before this one, so too did I end a streak of about 17 consecutive days. Now I didn’t want to just take those days off, so I made a couple of videos. Well more like one-and-a-half videos.

So this first video is just me explaining what I plan to do with my YouTube channel going forward. I feel as though it’s slightly confusing, so if you have any clarifications you need me to make, leave a comment asking me to clarify whatever it is you need clarifying:

So yeah, I’m going to be making videos much more regularly now. I even plan to make videos while I’m in Spain June 27th-July 8th, but I also don’t know what my internet situation will be over there, so I don’t know if I’ll yet be able to get them out on time, but I’ll try my hardest to do so.

This second video has an intro that kind of explains the rest rest of the footage, but again, if I was unclear on anything, ask me in comment form:

So yeah, there’s that. If you want to go ahead and subscribe to the YouTube channel, click on this sentence, as it is linked to the channel. From here on out, I might mention in a ballhawking entry that I uploaded a new video, but I won’t do entries like this solely to announce that I’ve uploaded a video, so if you subscribe you’ll be notified every time I make a new video. My next game is this upcoming Thursday at Nationals Park when the Nationals take on the Rockies, so expect an entry out within a couple of days of that game. I’ll also be going the day after, and I won’t spoil the surprise yet, but some interesting people will be at both the Thursday and Friday games. Also, just to clarify, there will no longer be the “Before The Gates Opens” videos. I’ll leave the ones that are up there on my channel, but I’ll just include the stuff I would have normally put in those videos in my day-to day vlogs. I think that’s all I have to say here, so again, if you need clarification on anything, leave a comment. But besides that, I’ll see you–but not really–when the next entry comes out in a day or two.

    You’re in Spain on Independence Day? SMH.

    Anyway, I’m gonna try to start using YouTube more. Not too many people have done it, and I want to get my blog some attention. Have some good ideas already. I mean everybody already talks about the games they go to. I’ll probably still do that but I’m always interested in exploring new ways to communicate to others, whether on WordPress or YouTube.

      bdweingarten- Yeah, that is pretty much my plan in doing this in addition to gaining some valuable experience in video-making. Except I’m doing it the other way around. I’m trying to get attention for my YouTube page through the blog, which is why I put this video up. While I do really like ballhawking MLBlogs, I can also see more of a future in video of this than in the written entry recounting of ballhawk stuff, so I’m going to test the waters and see how it goes. Oh, and I’d like to point out that I’ve been in America for more Fourth of Julies than you have.

        I’m more trying to get attention through my blog by doing something different, not necessarily trying to get YouTube viewers to go to my blog. I think YouTube could be a great resource for ballhawkers like it’s already been, but I also wonder if video taping could just be a tiny setback (If the ballhawk themselves were recording.) I’ve liked the videos that Zack Hample and Shawn Bosman have made.

        Got me on that last part!
        Till Then,
