Red Leaves

Whenever I need solace I turn to nature. Photographing these red leaves in a parking lot helped me celebrate autumn in CA, where it is often hard to find signs of autumn.

I want to write something down before I forget it. Today on Tyra she featured people that have become famous on Youtube.com. There was a guy on there who made a mean kitten video about his cat named Sparta. She said he was making $20,000 a month. I about fell off my chair. He said he was a professional youtuber. I have a handful of videos up on youtube.com, and I have a few subscribers, but nothing like that. I'm not even sure how youtube earns people money. I guess sponsors have picked them up because of their frequent hits.
Right now my video camera is crap. It's supposed to hold 30 minutes of video, but only holds 5 minutes. It was an early version of the Flip camera. I guess that is the popular choice, but considering how the first one was so sucky, I haven't wanted to buy that brand again. Maybe they've gotten better. Can anyone recommend their favorite video camera that is reasonably priced and works with youtube? I want to Vlog more. You can see why. Who wouldn't want to earn $20k a month? Honestly.

What is Smallaa.com?

I just joined a website called smallaa.com under the user name 'steampunk'. It's new I think and the main page keeps crashing. So I was only able to add 2 topics; steampunk and belly dance. I think it will turn out to be something like Stumble Upon. Hard to tell since I can't keep the page open long enough to really explore it.

I'm copyrighted

Hubpages.com said it picked me for a new feature where I can tell if another site has stolen my content and posted it to theirs. Interesting. I know my stuff gets plagerized from time to time, but mostly I steal my own content to highlight it on my blogs or other writing venues. Still, it will be interesting to see where my words turn up.
