Learning and Drawing

Find mandalas like this one on my YouTube channel

Things have continued to be busy at the Hermit Hut. I am still working, though Spring Break can’t get here fast enough! I am still drawing and still trying to grow my fledgling YouTube channel.

It’s always fascinating to me how much I don’t know when I start a new project. I mean, I jumped into starting this YouTube channel, and in just a few weeks, have discovered how much I don’t know about how YouTube works.

I thought blogging experience, SEO knowledge, and things like that would carry over. Turns out, not so much. :/ I mean, I understand more of the jargon than some people (I hope, anyway), so I think I have a leg up there, but delving into tags, keywords, analytics, etc. – it’s enough to make my head spin.

While I continue to plug away creating content and learning as I go, I am trying to remind myself to be patient. Rome wasn’t built in a day, right? I do, however, have days where I feel like I’m stumbling around in the dark. Just finding other channels to follow – other artists, people who draw mandalas – has been hard. My YouTube search-fu is apparently lacking.

So, I am trying to be kinder to myself and remember all those clichés –

Everyone has to start somewhere.

It takes time to build something good.

Turkey is better than ham. (Maybe that’s just my stomach and not a cliché. I can’t remember.)

In any event, I continue to draw, both here and over on YouTube. I’ve actually drawn a lot of mandalas, now that I stop to think about it. 20-some YouTube videos and over 80 mandalas here – so I am over that 100 mandala mark. 😀

I am getting faster at drawing (I hope that’s a good thing), which means I am drawing more mandalas in less time. I’m happy with the results – I hope you enjoy them, too. Head on over to YouTube, watch a couple of videos, and if you would be so kind, give me a thumbs up and subscribe if you like what you see. I’m off to draw some more!
