On this day, I opened a new YouTube channel for the sole purpose of posting my final YouTube video. Please go to: http://youtu.be/MWcv4uWnphw to view my farewell to YouTube. The following is the blog associated with the video.
The circumstances for my departure from YouTube are profound for me. Within the last few months, before my original channel, cglazaro100, was terminated by YouTube/Google on November 19, 2012, I was growing restless with the covers of popular music I was posting, not because I was getting bored, or that I was running out of songs to cover, but because I was searching for a more creative expression for myself. The covers served as chronological references that supported my blogs, but the covers were no longer satisfying my needs. I needed and yearned to be more creative. I yearned for something that I could really call my own, instead of just reinterpreting other people’s work. And, because of the termination of my original YouTube channel, I was forced to pursue something new. And, something new I am pursuing.
The covers and blogs I created for YouTube began my journey for providing insight into my life and they will continue to serve as a video journal for my children. I will repost all (149) of my YouTube videos on my website (www.lazarolivingdream.com) and I will continue to post new videos and blogs from time to time. I did already have a few videos in queue before my YouTube journey ended abruptly, but these small projects are no longer my focus. My efforts for my children will continue through my writing. I am creating a body of work I can truly call my own. I’m organizing my dreams, my experiences, my Faith, my ideologies, my love, my musings, my thoughts … I’m developing all of these expressions into a bounded body of writing infused by my passion and sealed with my desire for sharing. I have a foundation for the writing material that will tie everything together and I have a working title, but developing everything and putting it all together will take some time. I plan to see this through, but dedication and inspiration will ultimately determine the time frame for completing this endeavor. This will become a treasure for my children. I’m also hoping that this collection of writing will serve other people, as well. I intend to advertise my efforts and get it published so that I can share with our world once again.
I’m Absolutely Excited to make this publication a reality and I’m anticipating adversity along the way, but I hope and pray that I will overcome all obstacles and successfully make this dream come true. I’m hoping that people reading this blog will also be interested. I am finally developing writing that will B U R S T from the limitations of YouTube and its tiny description box. This Freedom is Wonderful!!! I’m anticipating the moment when I’m able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of my labor. I’m hoping it will be as sweet as I’m envisioning it to be. The seed is planted and the hard work begins with nurturing what I have sown. I’m praying for good weather along the way!
