Today at TY, I learnt about copywriting. Copywriting is when you write about something that is used to promote something such as advertising. I watched many videos on this topic, and I understood it well.

Light day today, tomorrow more?

Challenge Accepted: Writing

Today, at TY I started to challenge myself if writing is best suited for me. It is going to be tough, but I believe that I can do it. I learnt about how great writers write their books, then everything about magazines, which were interesting. Real kickers are writing a book. I did not know the process and I had to repeat some of the concept so I can understand it.

Overall, enjoyed it!

Crafts, More and More!

Today. at Techie Youth I learnt more about crafts, these microprocessors are very complex, and not for me. Then, I learnt about refitting old electronics to do other cool things, like modifying radios, etc. Then digital art came. Very cool, I liked that unit since I always wondered what artists do to achieve great paintings. Wearables? Meh.

Then the economics of producing the crafts you want to make - is really what crushed many of my initial ideas since the economics of production is not in my favor.

Today, at TY I learnt about subscription models, like freemium, or sponsorships. Then I learnt about how to sell my product. With intangible assets, they are products that are not physical, eg copyright.

Later, I learnt about advertising my product, like using Facebook ads, Instagram ads, and these tags to attract even more attention on the platform for insta. And, I learnt about the influence of Twitter and how it will target users and get them to buy your product.

Improving my Quality of Life further... but i'm out

Today, at Techie Youth, I learnt about my own self well-being, which I believe is important to me personally. Then I learnt about leadership, and how effective leaders stay cool under pressure, how their words inspire around them.

Then I learnt about mentors, which are people that guide you through what you need help with. Mentors are people who make positive changes towards your life. Lastly, I learnt about how to make quality money while exploring, doing whatever YOU want to do.

And the quizzes... Soon. I think I'm done with this unit, just not for me.

Improving my Quality of Life but...

Today, at Techie Youth, I learnt about improving my own quality of life. For example, time management. I struggle to manage time in the real world too, and I always end up delaying my work until final minute. However, I struggled to comprehend the things going on in the quiz, and I wonder if I can pass the quizzes.

I'm going to redo those and fix them up maybe tomorrow or Wednesday

Website Making, Part 2

Today, at Techie Youth I learnt about more of designing, prototyping, making and production of my own websites. I learnt about SQL, in basic definition, a database of whatever you need to store. Then, I learnt about Web Design. It is really important to have a good interface since that's where your visitors are most of the time. I learnt about analytics, which is data on your visitors, and intro on how to code.

Coding (jS)? Already know. Easy tomorrow...

Website Making Intro

Today, at TY today I went up early to finish my music production project. This was fun, as I was able to leíste to my beats and especially the EDM on GarageBand was exciting.

After that, website coding with HTML CSS JS was really interesting, so I spent the rest of the day on watching the intro and the first few lessons under that category.

Music Production - Update

Today, at TY, I have already started working on my music production which will hopefully be out by Monday. Using what I learned, I am able to know what I’m doing and hopefully get it out. Actually, I’m enjoying being able to see and hear what I’m doing.

See you Monday.

*btw I was working on Quality A project on Tuesday and somehow the system didn’t log my AM hours bc researching for doc*

New interest: Music Production

At TY, I learnt music production, and how pros use applications to create and distribute work to others. I read videos, articles, but I’m not that confident in my abilities to create music on my own.

However, tomorrow I plan to finish the unit and do the assignment and maybe redo the quizzes so I can pass them, ;)

7/14-7/15-7/18-7/19: Niche websites, Music Production, Quality A

On Thursday (7/14), at Techie Youth, I have been introduced to these 'niche' websites which I previously didn't know about. Well, those are websites that are dedicated to one particular interest/subject only and you can make $$$ off it.

On Friday (7/15), at Techie Youth I learnt more about these 'niche' websites which taught me how to monotonize these websites using spreadsheets and marketing. I plan to learn about other things and making the niche website on Monday.

Yesterday (7/18), at Techie Youth I have been sidetracked by my interest in Music Production, which I had to be reminded that I have to finish the assignments, so I started and finished my niche websites as a fan of Apple and incorporated links to Techie Youth strategically.

Today (7/19), at Techie Youth I have reviewed and researched topics that interests me and decided to finish the assignment for Quality A to catch up with the topics I have taken. Tomorrow, interested in music production, I cannot await to see what's there

Moving onto QA - Interesting

After completing the Video Editing project, I made progress into learning how to quality test applications that are in development and see what features are developed before the public sees them. It is important for the testers to understand and give feedback. Never have I thought that QA would be more advanced and complicated.

Finishing what I learnt - Applying them into a video

Today, after finishing my course in video editing, I chose to use Davinci Resolve. It was a struggle, taking hours to effectively use it even though I have watched tutorials and crash course videos. Fortunately, I was able to produce the video. It may be short, but it is a success

Looking forward to seeing what's next in the future.

Learning how to video edit - using many applications

Today, at Techie Youth, I learned different types of video editing applications from simple ones to high-end advanced ones such as Final Cut Pro. It is really interesting and cool to be able to add animations, transitions, and especially key binds to make editing painless.

I never knew that these existed, and is willing to explore more options when I come back tomorrow ;)
