Welcome to the first episode of Sallie’s Rebuilding America! I am hoping this new endeavor will allow me find the balance between using my gifts to help people while not giving up significant time away from my family and home responsibilities.
When I make a video about current events or even just try to do an in-depth post, it takes a few hours of my morning. I have to look at the news, decide what to discuss, find links or screenshots, record the video, listen to the video, choose graphics, upload the video to Gab, write the post, etc.
It isn’t the time only. It also takes a lot out of me. I record things in one take because there is no editing option due to time constraints. So I am careful what I say for legal reasons, cancel culture reasons, and being precise reasons. If I make a video about something important, it honestly wipes me out the rest of the day.
So David and I found a simple voice recorder app in Linux that allows me to simply record my voice and post it. I don’t have to mess with uploading a video to Gab. We’ll see how it goes.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you like this, please leave a comment. It can be as simple as this:
- Helpful – BRICS
- More – Ukraine human trafficking
Please don’t leave comment like these because this tells me nothing:
- Helpful – Russia
- More – Ukraine
This helps me know what it connecting with the people listening. If I receive no feedback, I won’t keep going. I don’t do these things for my sake. I do them for other people. Whether it is posts in the Rebuilding America section of my blog, videos, or now trying this – I do it to help other people. I don’t need this. I could be writing about literally dozens of other topics that are a lot less stressful. I do this out of a genuine desire to help others deal with what is going on. But there’s no point in investing my time in these if they aren’t helping anyone.
So that’s the deal. Feedback and I make more. No feedback and I will consider myself absolved of my responsibility to do this since there aren’t enough people who feel a need for them. There won’t be any hard feelings if there isn’t a need for them. I simply want to be a good steward of the time I have each day. ♥
Here’s the first recording.
