Another change! Video / YouTube news!

It is the end of an era, folks! And in year FOUR of making a weekly video for the SLC City Weekly website...I got the news that it's, well, going to be a thing of the past.

I knew it couldn't last forever.  
I consider myself very lucky to have been able to have this freelance gig THIS long.
Bill Frost, who got me this job has been nothing but a gentleman and a scholar.  
On my side every step of the way.  I leave my CW folks on good terms.  
I love them lots and they know I'd do anything to help them out in the future! 

In deleting a ton of old footage off my iMovie, I felt a little nostalgic and grabbed a couple screen shots to post (that now feel and look like a long time ago what with all the changes that have and are transpiring).  

I am sad to lose this job and the money, but I feel it's a good time to...conclude.  
That version of me ran it's course for me.  The timing feels very right.  

Now, does this mean I'll be spending more time making YouTube videos again?
I've gotten a lot of people asking me where my videos have been, requesting characters, telling me they've missed my videos, and it has been quite awhile since I've made one!

It's been a life changing platform for me, it opened up a whole new world and gave me jobs and opportunities I never would have had otherwise and I'm still in awe of it myself! MTV, Ranked as a Hottest Woman of the Web on G4TV's "Attack of the Show".  A Ford Fiesta Movement Agent with a free car.  A YouTube gathering.  Collaborations and meetings with people all over the country.  Hired for jobs out of state.  Awards and features in Salt Lake Magazine, IN, CW, and more.  Filling in on the local news.  Playing characters on the news.  TV interviews.  I know what it's like to autograph & mail off headshots.  To pose for pictures.  To sign autographs.  All because of online videos.  Sheesh!

So the big answer is...yes.  I want to get back to posting content on YouTube.  In fact, I have some things brewing as we speak.  I intend to continue forward with my fan base and that platform...but don't be surprised if I steer you all in an entirely different direction. 

What happens to Little Miss Honey Bee? Jack & Coke Lady? Jan? Lola the MILF? Larry? Twilight Musicals? Impersonations? Parody?

I'm not sure right now.

BUT I hope my viewers grow with me, and I hope to gather up new ones up along the way!

I can feel my energy, attention and heart gravitating and growing toward other endeavors.

Time to evolve.

Right now my time is for family, for reading, for writing, for learning.

But yes.  A youtube comeback will happen.  I'm excited to bring you what's next.  

The reinvention continues!

  1. Hello,Deena.
    I am glad you had a good run with the work for SLCW. Obviously, much time has passed from last video om YouTube. The easiest way to get back,and to adjust your style, would be to incorporate the new part with our old favorites. By doing older styles,your hard core core fans will regrasp the thread. And new viewers will not miss out on your crazy characters.
