July 27, 2012


It was very exciting to share the Dreams Really Do Come True e-book with everyone yesterday. This is my very first e-book and I'm so thankful to Lisa deYoung for pulling it together in such a beautiful way. It was very exciting to work with her and all of the writers and dreamers who contributed to the book. I hope it inspires many, many dreams!


I think I am done with books on doing videos, vlogging, YouTube... Yesterday I tried doing a rant vlog while waiting for the bus. It just isn't my thing as you will tell from the lack or energy (although I was just really exhausted too).

I think the best advice out of everything I have read is do your own thing. So! I am taking the books back today and am going to do just that. My own thing and not being influenced by what others are doing.

At least I now know ranting isn't my thing. I did wonder about that but my worries and concerns seemed so stupid the second I started talking about them.

I think doing it your own way is perfect! If you see something that really works, you can adopt it here and there. I'm already loving your videos. I loved all the cuts and additional content you did with the McDonald's one!

And btw, the colour of your hair looks awesome!

Reg was also thoroughly impressed you published your ebook yesterday Jamie! He was all like, "Jamie has a book out? Cool!" ;) So glad you shared that with the world and how lucky am I to have seen it ahead of time.

Thanks Jamie. I thought there might be secret intel in one of these books about keywords and that kind of thing but no, it's just luck of the draw what becomes popular really.

Oh thank you, so glad you liked the video, I wasn't sure if I was even going to put this one up. I do totally enjoy adding photos and cuts to them like I did with the interview. That is fun!

Can you believe how much my hair has lightened since I was in Toronto? Thank you so much Jamie! I think I am going to go for a more orangey/red colour for the wow factor since it just wants to go that colour anyway. :)

YAY to Dreams Really Do Come True eBook Jamie! That's so exciting and I am thrilled it's now available to inspiring dreamers all over the world!

Sounds like doing it your own way really is the way to go (and the advice out there) and totally suits you too Suzie! I think it's great how much research you've done and now decided to run with it, and testing out the rant is good too - sometimes you don't know how you feel about something until you try it. And your hair does look truly awesome :)

It is totally exciting Jamie! Now everyone is going to be inspired by you.

Thanks Shannon, I hope so. I did my best to research it but I think now I really just need to figure out how to use my new camera, LOL. You're right, it's good that I gave the rant a shot. Thank you for watching and for liking my hair! You rock!
