I am still here

Hey there I know I have not been blogging the past few days thought I would get a few things done during the Christmas and New Year period but I will be back to normal from next week.

I have been working on a new Vlogging project which I cant wait to get off the ground, I just hope its not going to be a huge flop. The way I see it is that being a vlogger you have to keep on top of things and keep trying new things so here is my new project, what I am doing is you know when you watch a Soap or a Movie and you try to imagine a scene done a bit differently like more funny or silly well this is what I hope to do by using graphics a bit like a puppet thing where i slightly animate a scene and do my own voice over.

alternatives ep1

This is the Thumbnail for my first vlog in the series which will be online January 1st 2018, depending on how it goes will depend on how I carry on making it lol, I will not be that upset if it does not take off at first but since I have put up a test video on what it might look like I have gained more subscribers lol so we shall see. As you can tell I am taking a funny side to a scene from Eastenders and from Star Wars ep VIII the last jedi, these scenes are very short in fact the first episode is under 2 mins …

so all that remains now is hoping the BBC dont mind me doing this as its just for fun and not intended to offend, I never intend to add swearing or vulgar language within the episodes.

Coffee Time Friday Evening 22nd Dec 2017

Evening Coffee Chat (1)

Hey there good evening hows you all??

I have been working in Canterbury today the last time this year so managed to take lots of pics and video for a Vlog but im only putting the photos on this blog site with a link From my YouTube channel.

I brought the BBC movie Street Dance 3D today have not seen this in ages, I defiantly love these kind of films because to me they are artistic and powerful, I have always loved dance themed films even Street Dance movies I love so powerful, I have never taken part in dance not even at school i was never the one for PE lol but looking back I wish I was but looking at me today emmmm no overweight etc and 48 so I do regret that but thats life, I will just stick to watching filmes based on Dance.

Anyway here are my Canterbury Photos from today

 

What I like the most about Canterbury is the history and culture, it has vibrant and a welcoming feel, the town is rich and full of expensive shops but it is a rich City. The university is vast and welcomes people from all over the world and they are the main shoppers plus coaches of visitors but the hundreds on a daily basis, plus the bus service from there takes you all over to Dover, Herne Bay, Whitstable, Margate, Westwood Cross and many more places including Port Lympne Zoo.

 

Evening Coffee Chat: 19th December 2017

Good evening you wonderful people

Evening Coffee Chat

Yep this morning I started a Daily Blog which I wrote at around 7am and its not 9.27pm and not one person has read my morning blog lol but i guess it can take awhile for something to take off so even after one day im not giving up that easy as I have learned from Vlogging..

So what has been happening today, work was ok just mainly sorting out the shop and chatting to customers which I love doing and it helps my Anxiety issues allot, after work I decided to check out some YouTubers and see whats happening in the world of Social Media and of course to see how other peoples lives are doing, isnt that why we enjoy watching reality programs to spy on other people and make sure there lives are not as good as yours but thats not why I watch other YouTubers as im not a Narcissist I watch other YouTubers because I like the positive and life learning skills they or most do without knowing. I mainly give off Positive vlogs and try to show how I cope on a bad day with Anxiety and stress also hoping that it can help one person..

When I finished work I decided to check on some other channels on Freeview that I dont normally watch, this is a test really as I want to do a Vlog on my reactions to watching programs I dont like or programs I have not watched since I was younger, I happen to stumble upon Walker Texas Ranger and I laughed well for the first 5 mins then I realised it was good apart from the acting lol the episode was called Saturday Night and it had Stallone’s brother in the main role as a nightclub owner.

So this is mainly my day apart from sitting here typing this all out lol..

Even though no one is reading this now but who knows in the future who will be reading these blogs.

Thank you for reading this

Morning Coffee: 19th December 2017

Every morning before work I always put on BBC One and watch the news just to see what good and bad in the world. This morning the weather looks ok for this time of year lol.

So why have I started doing this Blog, well it was a spur of the moment when I woke up this morning this was the first thing to pop in my mind, something telling me to write a blog calling it Morning Coffee hoping that no one else is doing this with the same title if there is someone then I do apologise and let me know then I can change the name in Future.

Ohh yikes a train has derailed in usa and 3 dead so far just on the news as im typing this OMG the film footage that is so bad OMG

So this is what I will be doing most mornings for the time being.

I have been for the past 18 ish months a YouTube Vlogger which has helped my mental state and given me such confidence in life to chat to people and be more of a people person that I want to be, my life has been a strange work experience which I will gradualy chat about over the next blogs, dont want to bore you all to death at the present time lol there is plenty of time for that. What I love the most about Vlogging is the freedom to express what I want with only a few guidelines and more freedom than tv channels. There are some good and bad vloggers out there and I suppose its the same blogging Trolls are everywhere but to me they only belong on harry potter or Lord of the Rings but that is my view.

So as I sit here 7.27am waiting to goto work drinking my coffee its a nice warm feeling typing my thoughts and views to the world wide web and then when I get back from work I can see how many of you wonderful people have read this.

I know this most probably is a slight bit boring but it is my first one and only thought of 30 mins before I turned on this laptop so I need more thought for tomorrow mornings blog which I will pay good attention to or maybe I could do a morning and Evening coffee something to think about I guess. What do you think if you have read this far lol..

Before I end this for this morning a quick question

What is your favourite coffee or tea?

Mine is a good Mocha thats made in a certain chain of coffee shops. but at home I mainly have the packet Mochas which are ok but they do the job..

Please comment if you have read this far on what you want me to chat about in the mornings or if you think I should do a Morning and evening coffee blog

Thank you for sparing a few mins to read this..

 

My Week that was August 14th – 19th VLOG

There is something magical about switching from almost vlogging every day to going weekly, you realize that you can produce better vlogs by making each day different rather than realizing that your daily vlogs are so much samey.

I wish I did this weekly thing from the start but thats the point of Vlogging you always learn the best way to do things with trial and error.

Also still trying to find the perfect Thumbnail for my Vlogs, I want to set a thumbnail that people will remember when they see my vlog.

I will get there.

Sp please take a look at this vlog and head on over to my Channel and Subscribe (it does not cost a penny) I have also added some links in the description that take you to different days to watch.

Thank you for reading this and watching my VLOG

Thank you for watching..

What I aim for in life

My name is Darren Keenan I will be 48 on August 4th 2017, I was born in the summer of 1969 (now you cant get that song out of your head).

There is so much in life I am grateful for and the main thing is my Vlogging on YouTube this is the most powerful thing I have ever done the confidence I have gained and the skills gained are amazing. So far I have around 180 vlogs I have created and uploaded but there are more challenges I need to face like thinking of new ideas for video, the difference between me and most YouTuber’s is that I have no one to vlog with so its just me but I feel I can do this.  I also have allot of challenges to face in the real world like finding a new place to live and a new job plus finding that women to complete my life (hopefully a woman who will vlog with me).

So there you go a little bit more about me if you are interested that is.

(your friendly neighbourhood Vlogger)

That moment you get a tweet of a Famous YouTuber

I know to some people this will seem like ohh is that all why do a blog about something stupid etc,.

But here it is lol a week ago I did a vlog about another YouTuber who I respect and that person encouraged me to get a camera and talk into it like most Vloggers but the positive rubbed off on me, i am talking about Alfie Deyes.

here below is the vlog i uploaded but the story does not end there

After uploading the vlog on YouTube I send a twitter to alfie, his sister poppy ans zoella his girlfriend not expecting any of them to respond thought it would get lost in the vast space of the internet but no I was wrong

I was so shocked I could not believe he replied, I have worked at Alton Towers and met lots of famous people but to me Alfie is better than any of them because he is real and he shares 15 mins a day of his life in a vlog weather it be a boring vlog (which he never makes) to an amazing Vlog.

Since this message from Alfie I have been getting tweets with likes and messages from everywhere also on YouTube I have gained some more subscribers who have left me some nice messages.

So there you go just thought I would share this with you all and if now you are thinking what ever then sorry for boring you but this is my life and I take these moments and treasure them because thats just the way I live my life.

thank you for reading this

The month of June 2017

Wow when I was younger My Grandparents always told me that when I get older the days go so fast and when you get ill it takes longer to recover.. I don’t know if all Grandparents said this to all Grandchildren or was it just mine lol

Anyway so now im 47 years old 48 in August 2017 I am getting to that age where I know what they mean, the weeks are going so fast its unbelievable but i reality time does not go slow or speed up its all in the mind, So why does are mind do this kind of thing, its a question I have always wanted to answer.

When you are at work Mondays to Fridays the days seem to dragg but when you have your weekend off it goes so fast you dare not blink, Yes I understand the saying the more fun you have the faster the time seems to go, so does that mean if you love your job and enjoy being there then the time goes faster (damn I need a new job) then I fully understand so at weekends just do nothing and get bored then time will go slow..

So back to the topic about June.

Here in Dover its been the same old thing really, lots of work going on with the re-generation of the town and the Banksy painting is still there for all to see. Our local MP Charlie Elphicke has been around to help save the Banksy picture.

So for the time being if you are around Dover while the Banksy is still there just pop round the corner to the Emmaus shop and say hello…

Nothing much else this month (even though there are still a few days in the month to go lol)
