A couple months ago, when I was trying to figure out Patreon, I ran across a couple of youtube channels that looked interesting. Now, I have not had time to check these out but thought that I’d mention them to you in case they included subjects in which your children are interested.
The first is probably just interesting to those in older grades as it deals with World War 1, I believe. It is called The Great War. From 2014 through 2018 he did a series about what happened that week a hundred years ago, which is interesting.
The other channel is about various points of history and even some videos about video games and gaming. The channel is called Extra Credits. There really is a wide assortment of videos here to check out. You could use either channel along with whatever other resources you are using for the specific historical time and talk about how the information corroborates or differs.
If you check these out, let me know what you think,
It is hard to believe that I started this blog 5 years ago! I have posted new content five days a week for five years minus a dozen or less repeat posts. I had no idea that I’d find enough to say or share. Then I look at Lori Byerly of The Generous Wife and see that she’s had her site for about ten years and she puts up content every day! I’m in awe.
My immediate goal is to go over the posts here on the site giving each one appropriate tags. This will probably take me a couple of months but I think it will be helpful to visitors of the site to find what they are looking for.
I dislike ads! I really dislike loading a webpage and having an advertisement video load automatically–wait, I dislike any video loading automatically; if I want to see it, I’ll click on the play button. I dislike pop-ups trying to get me to sign-up for emails or notifications and the like. Consequently, I won’t do it to you!
My oldest son has been after me for a long time to monetize this blog, to at least recoup the yearly costs. I’ve been thinking about some kind of pdfs that people could buy to help with that and make a little bit of money too. My daughter told me that some of my zentangles would be nice coloring pages.
So I’ve been thinking a lot about this. I’ve been considering Patreon as well. It allows you to have tiers as low as $1 a month and allows you to provide digital goods too. There’s so much to it, my head is spinning. I intend to make a decision about this over the weekend and will announce something next Friday.
Also, Tiffany and I have started a Youtube channel, Joyous Jabbers. The plan is to post a new video every Saturday beginning tomorrow. We hope it will be a blessing and encouragement to you.
Well, that’s all I got today. As you can tell, I’ve got lots to do and I better get busy.
Until next time,
