It’s much more professional than that other video-sharing service. The commentary is real, from real people you can see. The footage is in mostly-HD. I love HD. Life is in HD. People who are trying to DO things and be great use Vimeo. But it might not be as user-friendly as that other footage-sharing service.
Now YouTube. YouTube has it’s strong points. Wide user-base. Generates value. Ease of use. Also attracts alot of ignorance and ill-informed viewpoints because of anonymous comments. The quality of footage sometimes sucks. Doesn’t feel as personable. But it has it’s strong points.
Which would you prefer; a really good YouTube video or a really good Vimeo feature?
For marketing purposes, I have to say YouTube. Gives my brands much more exposure. Otherwise, Vimeo.
What caught my eye was the author’s interesting observation of how highly successful people interact with one another. These individuals tell it like it is. If it’s a breast, they call it a breast. There’s no running around the bushes. And that’s Carol Bartz. Carol tells it like it is.
Carol Bartz is the current CEO Yahoo!, the third most visited site on the Internet. She’s been driving some serious innovation at Yahoo!, positioning the company atop a very large stack of financial wealth and talent.
I hate to get personal on Tumblr but yesterday I felt utterly lost and confused. A relationship that (I thought) I had ended two years ago but never really put behind me came to a halt. A sudden, screeching, I-never-saw-that-coming stop. He wanted to “try different things.” So it goes.
I blame myself partially for letting things fester and go on longer than they should. But it’s OK. I know better now.
And you’re probably asking yourself what does that have to do with Julie & Julia. Well, in the midst of my sad state of mind, I resorted to doing what girls do best: watch chick flicks.
I promise this post is going somewhere. I swear.
I saw Julie & Julia, which was sitting in my Netflix instant queue for at least five months. Good choice. I cried my heart out. As I watched the film, I saw myself onscreen. The emotions that were all too familiar. And then it suddenly clicked - I’ve gotten into the routine of being in a relationship and I’ve forgotten what is it exactly that I love to do. I don’t know what my passions are anymore. What happened to kayaking? And cooking? I love cooking given I have the time and ingredients.
I think it’s time I refocus and work on figuring out what makes me happy. Life is too short to mope around and cry over him. It’s a new chapter.
So here’s a toast to old lovers, cherished memories and the new ones to come. Cheers!
