Day 1 of eating less meat, and more veggie/vegan.

I had tried eating vegetarian for 18 months or so, and eating like a pescetarian for a couple of months as well.

But now I want to reduce my meat consumption again, and let fish be the only meat I want to eat.

However, if I happen to around people and gatherings where meat is eaten, I won’t be the drama king/queen making a big deal. I’ll then either eat it, or I won’t.

But when I do the groceries, that’s when I’ll be careful about what I buy.

Peter Dickson is one of the best-known voiceover artists in the UK.

His career has spun 4 decades.

Now he wrote a book about his VO life:

VOICE OVER MAN

I just received a hand-signed copy.

So cool! 😎

Hi @aral

I just watched your latest video:

How to send an email
ar.al/2021/12/20/how-to-send-a

It’s cool to see how that works.

I only noticed at the end of the Vimeo video that there’s no text on/in the the call-to-action button; it’s just white...

(see attached screenshot)

This is so smart.

How do you provide your email address on your website while still avoid spam to catch it?

Easy.

You make let your “contact” button fire a copy-to-clipboard function with the message:

“Our email "hi@yourdomain.com" has been copied to your clipboard.”

Found out about it when checking creatorkit.com

Beispiel 2 ist eine gute Art, sich zu präsentieren, wiederum als Sprecher.

💡Tipp: Fokussiere den ersten Eindruck.

Präsentiere ich dich als ein Ding, nicht zwei. Das erhöht die Klarheit in den Köpfen der Leute und du wirst als Experte gesehen. Spezialisten werden besser bezahlt als Generalisten.

Hier sind 2 Beispiele 👇

Example 2 is a good way of presenting yourself, e.g., again as a voiceover artist.

💡Tip: Focus your first impression.

Present yourself as one, not two things, to increase clarity in people’s minds and to be seen as the expert. Specialists get paid more than generalists.

Martha Graham's advice to fellow dancer Agnes de Mille:

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there's only one of you, in all of time, this expression is unique.

If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and it will be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable it is, or how valuable it is compared with other expressions.

The Exporter Tool falcon.star-lord.me/exporter/ is actually working well.

It only crashed before because Miro Video Converter was running in parallel and my weak Mac Mini didn’t like to serve another demanding application.

Some exports fail but even when they fail, the app shows me that they fail and exports these notes as .html files instead of .md files.

The interface is also neat.

Conclusion:

Together with its clean design and its straightforward language on the homepage, about page, and FAQ page, I find BMC to be a worthwhile Patreon competitor.

Very simple design, totally right up my alley.

That’s why I didn’t hesitate to set up my account.

You can now buy me a camomile tea because… screw coffee xD

Other copy choices that I enjoyed:

1. designed for _creators_ not for businesses
2. they are your supporters not "customers" or transactions
3. get paid instantly to your PayPal or bank account - no 30-day delays
4. 100% ownership of your supporters; export your email list any time you like

And then I checked how they compare to Patreon and Ko-fi…

BIG ONE: They included a real video review by YouTuber MrAlexTech on their front page => youtube.com/watch?v=NhzVaYH_YT -

Plus, the website is simply designed with lots of white and whitespace - which I like.

I took the red pill 💊 and said bye-bye to Big Tech - in this case facebook, twitter, linkedin.

Will only stay on non-Big-Tech-owned communities incl. my own Mastodon instance of course.
