I was stuck on how to start writing this page, couldn’t figure out what first sentence was the best starting phrase. So, I will just use the first sentence from a great novel…Well… in the beginning… only kidding!
I am going to tell a story. The reason being is that this page is about the site “GizEdwards” and that is me…
So it’s time for me to rolled up my sleeves and get the “self obsessed ego” muscle a good old stretch as I sit at my dusty typewriter and tell you a story.
OK, you got me. It’s not a typewriter it’s a laptop, but it is dusty… been a while.
Younger Giz Edwards
I was going to call this section “Young Giz Edwards” but I realise; “Hell, I am young, I’ll change it to Younger Giz Edwards”
As a sprog, I was convinced that I was either going to be a school teacher or an entertainer. Well University was an eye opener to the teacher side. I did/do enjoy teaching, thoroughly, but the job side to it was not my cup of tea.
And thank God right! Could you imagine the way of life I would have been in if I was a teacher…
Aside from that, Little Giz was determined to show of his teaching skills in an exciting way. Without knowing it I was creating my own form of edutainment.
And so, the “Edutainer” was born.
Then YouTube Happened
YouTube is pretty freaking awesome.
When I first started making videos on the internet it was when YouTube was teeny tiny. No where near the powerful entity that it is now. But at that moment I know that it was what I wanted to be involved with, I knew that it was the direction that I wanted my life to take.
However, how the hell do you get into that? Not sure… I guess I will sleep on it… eh, eh, eh, anyone? Nevermind…
Dreams have always been interested in dreams and the paranormal. Anything that it was not easily explained, or anything that is not explained by “normal” perception of truths.
Through natural development of my online presence and personality. I became a somewhat noticeable force. Still a tiny ripple in the ever growing ocean of the internet, but I have my YouTube people, my “everyone”?
Now I am in this weird part of my life where I had finished my studies at University, got a full time job, as an Assistant Manager to a retail store.
Then what do I do? I take the plunge and give it all up for YouTube, so hope the best for me…
Jeeze, what a weird roller coaster. At some point in the story that is my life I have moved 17 times and been homeless twice, once for a couple of months and another time for a day. That’s a story for another day though.
Well, my ego muscle is firmly warmed up. Let’s crack on with the rest of the site.
