I started a YouTube channel!

Howdy and welcome to today's post. So as you can probably gleam from the title, I started a YouTube channel! I actually started it before I got my blog back online. It was sort of a way to procrastinate but still feel productive. Now my blog is up and running again, I plan to maintain both, however the likelihood is the YouTube videos will be somewhat infrequent.

Much like my blog, my channel is going to be somewhat eclectic. At the minute I'm concentrating on getting comfortable in front of the camera, speaking and editing videos and thumbnails. I've had YouTube channels in the past that I have since deleted for various reasons, so I'm not a complete novice but it's still been a while. Along with the fun things like tags and challenges, I'd like to talk more about my hobbies, such as arts and crafts. I'd also like to make pet videos, the first of which I uploaded last night. It's about Agron, my Giant African Land Snail. In the future I'd also like to bring more of my activism to my channel, talking about disability and lgbt+ issues as well. I will maybe vlog a little as well.

So yeah, I'm really looking forward to creating and uploading more content in the future. I probably won't cross post vids on to my blog, unless I'm particularly proud of it or think it may be of interest to my blog readers. So if you're interested in keeping up with my channel as well, please do subscribe. I'd honestly appreciate it so much.

While I won't be cross posting every video, I thought I would finish off this post with the first official video I uploaded on my channel, Get to know Bloo! If you're been a reader of mine for a while, maybe you'll learn something new. If you're a first time reader or new reader, then hopefully this will help you get to know me a little better. Enjoy!

Pets 'n' Stuff | What could be Betta?

"Pets are humanising. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life."
James Cromwell

Hello and welcome to today's post. No, I haven't got a new pet to share with you today but I am currently making plans for one in the future. The distant future. I think my family is tired of me talking about my new obsession, so I figured I'd hit you guys with it instead.

When I lost Rue suddenly back in January, I knew some day I would want another hamster. Rodents are one of my favourite types of animal to own. I have a special affinity with them and I honestly feel like there's really something missing in my home when there isn't one there. However, I decided to wait until the adaptions were done to my home and I moved rooms before I thought about bringing in another rodent. I wasn't sure how much of a disruption the work would be and I didn't want the potential noise etc stressing out my little fur baby.

We are now in October and we are still waiting for my adaptions to be completed, so I've continued waiting until the time is right to introduce another kid to my pet family. However, my sister has always been interested in Betta fish (also commonly known as Siamese fighting fish) and has always planned to get one once our house work is done. Obviously she's also still waiting but now we're reaching the end of the adaptions (I'll have to update you guys on that soon...), she's been talking more about her Betta.

Pets 'n' Stuff | The Big C

"A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won't be too bad."
Robert Wagner

Howdy and welcome to today's post. It's going to be one of those ones that I don't know how to begin. I struggle with how to start posts at the best of times but today's is especially hard. It's a post nobody wants to write and something I didn't think I'd have to face any time soon. Still, it's not as bad as I thought it might be just a few days ago and I'm grateful for that small mercy. Today's post is about Baby, my chocolate Labrador. The dog that made me a doggy mama and my oldest furry kid.
