Vlogging is more entertaining than blogging! Now I am a Youtuber…

15 Nov

Vlogging is more entertaining than blogging! Now I am a Youtuber...

Vlogging is more entertaining than blogging – I changed my scene… Yup! What I mean is that I usually wrote a lot before but now I can’t hold back anymore. I needed to talk and walk at the same time and record it. A lot of my blog posts are now actually video vlogs instead. As I think video makes more of a presence and feels better to interact with my viewers.

What platform should I use? Youtube or Facebook…

I started to use youtube some years back on my company channel youtube.com/macgeni and after some time I started my own private channel and removed irrelevant videos and just started uploading vlog videos. My goal is to make more videos with inspirational content or just my advise.

Why should I be interesting in a video?

I thought about this a lot as I feel I am a private person. But as I follow others like Peter McKinnon, Cody Wanner and Casey Neistat I started to feel that it doesn’t matter who you are. If I can inspire just 1 person – that will make me very satisfied. And I also have a lot of knowhow because of my interest for photography and video in my company barnerdesign.com I knew my interest will fuel my passion for creative creation.

I find that everyone is interesting if you find the time for them to find that something in them or their passion! I really enjoy people talt about their passions – and I love talking about my own and giving out good advice.

With that in mind I am not worried and after filming for a year though only releasing about 5-6 videos.

Editing videos – just takes a lot of time!

Perfectionists are impossible – and I am one… It just takes time to cut, edit, soundedit and color correct and much much more… Wow! I knew this before but now it seems I have just gotten better at making videos but that also takes me more time. I recommend keeping a schedule of when to upload. But I don’t have a lot of subscribers just yet. Maybe it will never happen – but I guess I am fine with it. As long as one person or more feels inspired.

What language should I speak!?

Yes I am a dane and I speak Danish as all other Danes in Denmark. But I can see on my MacGeni Channel on youtube that my English videos perform way better and the respons is just awesome. We as Danes do not ‘like’ things that much on social media it seems. We are not a very outgoing people – we tend to think “don’t think you are better than me!” which is a typical feeling many Danes will have. And I don’t care for it… So: I decided to speak English in my videos and yes that also makes me edit more video where I cut out all the mistakes haha!

Where you can see my video logs (vlogs)?

It would make me so happy to hear what you think of my videos? What type of content is entertaining you? Do you have favourite youtubers you would recommend? Please comment here on my blog or on one of my videos.

Can’t wait to hear what you like…?

book - Most amazing retro graphic design book publishing store in New York City

I got so inspired by this most amazing retro graphic design book publishing store in New York City. I was amazed by their wonderful book designs and graphic design skills in their layouts. I have made a nice collection here of what you can see and buy on their website. I can’t wait to visit next time I am in NYC to experience and feel their books. Finding a gem like this and with a very decent website is quite rare for me. It’s very retro most of what they have and in the most amazing way. I am not being paid or sponsored in any way by saying check out Standard Manual website and go explore their many books and so forth. You might wanna visit to get the full experience!

 

“Our mission is to archive and preserve artifacts of design history and make them available to future generations. From reprinted graphics standards manuals to new compendiums of archival work, our titles always aim to make great design available to all.”

Worst 70ies clothes for men – inspiration for Halloween

22 Oct

Worst 70ies clothes for men – inspiration for Halloween. Usually I don’t write about fashion but since it’s all posters or pictures in magazines in the 70s I think it’s kind of relevant when Halloween is around the corner and these hilarious photos of men in the 70s try to look sleek and cool. 

These images are so retro commercials and ads  for men’s clothes in the 70s that I began laughing. Worst of all I remember some walking around in some of these clothes in the 80s to. Which means they were way behind fashion ha ha. 

If you wore these clothes today I would be pretty sure that even girls would yell this at you: https://youtu.be/eyQca1cwe54

Hilarious and funny clothes for men in the 1970s:
