Sometimes you have to stay up until 6 am to get shit done, but now it’s here; I’ve updated the branding on my Pratters project. I’m calling it Pratters 3.0, purely because it’s the biggest rebrand since James Patters 2.0, but you can call it what you like.
If you follow me on social media I’m sure you’re very much aware that I’m travelling, but I’m going to a lot of places, experiencing a lot of new things and doing so with a few different people. So, I thought I’d lay down the plans here, if you’re interested.
I have a lot of time to think, that’s one of the reasons why I created this blog in the first place. I think it’s good to share thoughts and express myself and that’s what I want to do. The problem is that not all of my thoughts are positive, but I want my “brand” to be bright and upbeat. I want it to cheer people up.
It’s been 3 weeks now, and that slow, tedious January didn’t happen this year. I mean, January totally happened – but not in it’s usual fashion. It started with… oh wait, it started with somewhat of a hangover and a lack of sleep. Never mind. It continued with a lot of productivity; in terms of college work and university-related “things”. I’ve also got round to cooking some actual meals for myself, trying out some new music and tv, building my portfolio and, of course, keeping in contact with the people around me that paint my canvas – that let me do what I’m doing. Besides the continued heavy workload, I’m happy and I’m healthy. I believe 2015 will continue in this fashion. Let’s talk about that…
Hi. If you’re subscribed to me on YouTube then you probably noticed (or didn’t notice, as the case may be) that I disappeared. I genuinely haven’t made a video since the 8th of May 2014 (let’s just ignore that awkward ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? I didn’t even edit it!). I’m sorry, but there’s a few reasons and I think I need to get them off my chest. So here we go…
James Pratters 2.0 is a new project I’ve been working on as an extension to my YouTube channel. I stopped making YouTube “vlogs” in May for various reasons (which I’ll explain in a later blog post), and I have been wanting to make something new since August. I thought to myself that it’s been so long since I made a video that it would be appropriate to have a “rebranding” of my channel and my online persona- hence James Pratters 2.0. It’s like an update (nifty, eh?).
For more details on what the project consists of, please visit my About page. As for this blog, I just wanted to give an introduction and explain a few things to my potential audience.
