I had a lot of ambition today, but as the day progressed, lost the will to do much. I really need to get started on the album for our friends’ new house, but I’m not completely sure of the type of album I want to create, so keep stalling.
I watched a video of a woman using scraps to make a card and think I’ll make one of those, but the video was made by a Stampin’ Up rep, and she talked non-stop about how great she treats her customers, and even went into detail about their rewards program and incentives, and that’s when she lost me. I really like watching videos for the sake of the video, and if you discuss a product that you sell, that’s great…..just don’t tell me about how good you are to your customer and the things you’ll do to give back your incentives. Am I whining too much? I do realize that they use YouTube to supplement their income and to encourage their customers to buy more product from them, but I just can’t handle the extra sales pitch. It’s similar to watching a YouTube video where there is advertising placed every five minutes in the video. I don’t think anyone wants to have a video interrupted for the exact same advertisement in five minute intervals. Maybe I’m just out of touch, but isn’t one advertisement at the beginning of a video sufficient? Just my two cents on things. I need to take a break from watching videos, as it’s making me cranky.
