Spreading myself to thin. o.o

Well, that was slightly annoying. o_o

Blogger wouldn't let me log in, and it scared me for a minute! I was sitting here trying to guess old passwords and Google e-mail addresses. O_O

But, I fixed it. Don't really know how. We'll see if I have a problem with it later.

But anyway, I just wanted to type up a new entry. IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK FOR?


Lately, I feel like I'm spreading myself too thin.
I feel overwhelmed, and unorganized. =[ I do not like it.

All I want to focus on, (if i had my way) would be:

1. Preparing for my Saanich Fair performance.
2. Recording and producing the new album.
3. Practicing and filming cover's for YouTube.

That's it. Oh, and.

4. Be around people.
For a few days now, I've been secluded. I guess I'm the type of person who craves company.

But instead I find myself:

1. Keeping my Facebook (musician page) up to date. As well as my..
1 a) Myspace
1 b) Twitter
1 c) Website
1 d) YouTube
1 e) Zoxzy (don't ask)
1 f) Reverbnation
2. Sending out Newsletter's
3. Researching a whole heck of a lot on YouTube video's.
(how to make good ones people will ACTUALLY WATCH).

So basically, a lot of mind numbing .. crap to be honest with you. =P

Okay, so maybe that's a little mellow dramatic, but do you catch my drift?
It's, basically, a lot of internet marketing stuff, which was fun at first, but is really starting to wear on me now. I mean, I'm my own website designer, runner, facebook, myspace, etc, etc.. keeper, it's driving me a little bit CRAZY!

Especially since I'm kind of.. obsessive compulsive.
It's true, I just realized it a while ago. I obsess over thing's really easily.
And I don't think that's good.. or healthy. It certainly doesn't feel that way.

I feel like breaking off from it all for like, a week. See how it makes me feel. Probably more, I'll feel more clear. And at ease, I'll be able to sleep in in the morning. Not like lately, I've been a little wired.

So, I know I can't exactly break off from the internet for that long, I still want to maintain a relationship with my (fans) if you will. I can't just ignore them!

So, maybe I'll have to limit myself? Or, just, plan it better.
Like, 1 hour for internet marketing stuff a day. 1 1/2 at the most.
Then at least a couple hours for working on the new album, and the rest for practicing for the Saanich Fair and hanging out with friends, and then eating and sleeping and going to the bathroom, lol, I think you get it. :P

Maybe that's what I'll do..

=\ *thinking face*

Oh! Sadly enough one of the highlights of the day was watching the (new) New Moon Trailer. Now that I know how to embed things onto my blog, I thought that I would embed it. :)


... =o what?

UGH! Well the channel I got the video from won't allow embedding. >.<

Fine, I'll give you a stupid looking link..

I do the same thing Karly, I am supposed to be doing my "actual" work but instead I facebook and goof around on the internet. My trick now is to find one thing a day that I want to do and do it first. Before I check my email or log on to facebook. Try only checking your email once or twice a day too, that helps.

To embed something, grab the embed or html code, go to the "edit html" tab next to "compose" while you;'re writing a blog and put it in there and then flip back to compose. It shoud work. If it doesn't, I dont know. :P

PS. Good plan. :)

Thanks for the advice!
And I know how to embed Rebecca, but this time, the youtube channel I got the video from wouldn't give away the embed code. It disabled it by request.

Not Twilight video for my blog. :(

Lol, I didn't mean it like that at all.
That's one down fall with communicating through just plain text. You don't get the personality with it.
It literally is, just letters that make words.
