The Autumnal Saturday plan

Autumnal Saturday

Im attempting today to use my pics from Flickr. So if the image doesn’t appear…then clearly I messed up and went about it the wrong way. If I have I will fix it up again.

Its Saturday and I am looking out the window and no it is not snowing. It is however very Autumnal and full of leaves of oranges, reds and browns falling to the ground now.

I am housework overloaded and done, showered and clean and smelling like a coconut as I have slathered myself in coconut body butter today. I could easily say that today I am rather edible. (In a smelly kind of sense)

My plans? Hell none! Today I am relaxing and either between pc or some random film on Netflix.

Its miserable outside and a perfect day for being in clean pjs and doing nothing.

I am not expecting anyone to come over, though if they do, they can enjoy the bliss of my tropical aroma and shiny scrubbed skin and delight in the pjs of todays attire.

However in a virtual world as you can see, I am fully dressed and absorbing the autumnal feel of the moment.

What are you doing today?

Do you wanna Funk with me!?

Do you wanna Funk with me!?

I had my anti social media for most of today until late this afternoon.

Can I just say how glorious it is to detach now and then from it and just be in touch with reality and what you can see and breathe around you?

Now that I am back. Lets get all social.

Madison Cubbage. Oh My God!!!!

Seriously that gal can dance! And I don’t mean just dance side to side . But seriously dance. Those moves!

I said to Jonny from Paragon Dance Animations that her little  real life person just seriously moves so well, its pretty mesmerizing really. I am in absolute awe.

I am developing such a love of dance, more so than I have ever had. Dont get me wrong I have always loved dance, but now, even more so.  Connecting with the people who make our jaws drop with their skills and being able to move like them (if only virtually) is totally awesome.

Each time Paragon are releasing dances, they are introducing real social influencers into our world. These people dance and are captured to bring to us their moves and in turn they get to see what we are all about.

Now to me that is awesome on so many levels.

Go watch…..

Face Off

Face Off

Some days it can hit you. Those feelings that you bury.

Mine hit me today whilst sitting in a Social security Benefits training session.

There I was in the moment and there it was. The feelings. Then they went.

But as I came home they returned like nimrod lightening. (Yeah I made that lightening description up).

Like a bolt searing inside me. Tearing my soul and that temptation to just once more. Have it again.

The comfort feeling to be satiated.

Then…….

I found some in the cupboard. A whole bar of fruit and nut chocolate.

Hallelujah!!!!

Contemplation Spag or Cheesey?

Contemplation Spag or Cheesey?

Right now I’m standing here considering whether to do a Spag Bol or a Cheesy Pasta Bake.

Certainly is doing my wee head in with such decisions. Frankly I was all prepared in my head for the Spag Bol but now the thoughts of Pasta baked with mascarpone sauce and cheese melted, well that’s now screaming at me. The issue is that it  takes way longer than a Spag Bol to cook.

Have I got that kind of patience to wait? Hell no. Im starved as heck and may eat my fingers off if I don’t have dinner. I just cannot decide!!

In the meantime I will just upload this blog with video which is on IGTV. I was previously putting the videos on YouTube as unlisted but often people dont think to click the video imbedded in the blog.  As I have an Instagram account, heck why not put it in there instead and see what happens.

The thing is my wee fashion videos I can do often but aren’t really geared for YouTube. So this may be the way to go. What the heck.

Red before bed

Red before bed

Would you believe I slept like a giant sized baby last night and it was bliss.

I’ve had a issue the past few weeks with sleep and my brain slowing down and really found I was getting only 3-4 hours of that sleep a night.

I personally cannot function properly on little sleep and it’s been hard to keep to my routine and not give into it. I function best on 7 hours.

Finally last night I slept. What was the secret I hear you say? Detaching from social media for most of my day, and before sleeping, turning the iphone away and just playing with the cats and relaxing my mind so that it slowed down and was almost like a slow steady heartbeat.

A lot has to be said for internet, social media and the like that’s so positive.

But a lot has to also be said about some of the impacts it has on you.

Draxtor Despres has an excellent attitude to it all. Switch off and engage with life.

I’ve learnt that he turns off regularly and spends time doing other things and only goes to social media at selected moments. It’s not 24/7 and actually I think we could all benefit from this.

Most of my issues stems from my Fibro but also I do feel engagement in these electronic activities has a great impact on us.

We don’t notice it until our minds are working overtime. Consider the fact many work on computers all day, then afterwards social media, television and gaming.

What opportunity are we giving ourselves to relax completely and interact with life around us?

We walk the streets and everywhere you look are people with their heads buried in their electronic devices, staring at the little screens as they walk.

What kind of world will we be in ten years from now? Will people even walk out their front doors?

Let’s take a positive action to limit our time and engage more with what is around us.

Grrrrr get me out of here!

Grrrrr get me out of here!

I struggle a lot with unwanted invites/adds into Facebook groups or being added/tagged in Flickr and any other social media whatsoever. When it’s directly associated to porn.

If I wanted to join in some group to satiate some desire I have, wouldn’t that be my decision?

There seems to be a rise of this kind of thing particularly in the Flickr realms, but lately I seem to get the Facebook invites and frankly if I wanted to see porn, I’m quite capable of doing it myself thank you.

My most recent is now Instagram.

I woke up today to private messages from women (cough men) trying to get me interested in their “private” page.

Not so long ago I was tagged amongst other women into a Flickr page. Some pixel dude had added all his dick photos to it. No thank you. I’d rather admire a salami and then eat it!

Ive previously spoken in one of my Coffee with Isa about how I’ve been emailed dick pics from people watching my YouTube. I did say at the time I’d create a collage of it all.

Anyone else finding they are getting this?

What do you do about it?

Freebooting in Coffee with Isa

Freebooting in Coffee with Isa

So you may wonder what this Coffee with Isa is about? Freebooting?

I do my best to explain in the following video and its basically to let all  my fellow content creators who make video for YouTube and photos for Flickr aware of what it means.

A few weeks ago I discussed something in a Friday rant video which left a few people perplexed and who asked me what the big deal was. Well Freebooting is the unauthorized duplication of digital content and the presentation of that content as original work.

Online content includes articles, images, blog posts, music files and videos. Many people mistakenly believe that online content may be freely copied and reused, or that it may be reused unless the owner includes a note about copyright protection. In fact, all original content is protected under copyright law and may not be duplicated unless the owner has explicitly granted reuse rights, and any duplication beyond what is deemed to be fair use is illegal. **statement taken from techtarget**

So when you happily spend all your time and money creating content you load onto YouTube with the hopes that people watch and appreciate, you dont do so with the thought that actually someone appreciated it so much, they decided to nick it and then put their own brand mark over it and upload it as their own.

This is in fact a huge issue and really needs to be addressed and people to start branding the hell out of their content. You see the minute someone cuts out your watermark or they place a watermark over your watermark, it shows clear intent.

Under the credits I will link to a few articles and also some videos which you may find very interesting. Suffice to say my advice is in the video too, which is watermark your content,  and if you have a Facebook page, upload it into Facebook at the same time as you upload it into YouTube. (schedule its release or keep unlisted for a short while) thereby you are protecting your rights to that content in Facebook as well. Dont forget Instagram as it is also rife on there.

This article is a very interesting one and covers how facebook allows the earnings on pirated videos. It is a year old but the information is what you need to read.

 

This is an older  article which goes in depth into what Freebooting means Business Insider

There are many videos on YouTube regards this. I was going to link but I didn’t want to favour any channel above the other so just search freebooting.

The child within

The child within

Anyone who bothers to know me as a person knows that on a daily basis I fight with obstacles that throw themselves like a bus in front of me. Some days my “fight” feels so encompassing that I really could give up.

I’m tired of fake views, fake likes, fake news.

I’m tired of fake friends, fake smiles, fake fake fake.

In today’s society where everyone is defined by their social media’s there is a generation of people rising that no longer see what’s around them, no longer enjoy what’s around them. It’s only what is found at your finger tips that is becoming important. The affirmation that you seek via social media the likes, the comments etc.

The comments that reinforce your belief that as a person you are acceptable, you are liked. You are important.

Stop, have a conversation. Get to know someone. Jack who lives 1000 miles away may “like” your status or your photo. But “Jack” is not any more significant if you compare “Jack” to “Doris” you sister, your friend, your aunt, your cousin. Affirmation begins at home, so make sure that you look at those children and those close to you and make them feel that they are special, important and worthwhile.

Be the child again and remember what’s really important.
