Captains Log: 012 – Lots of Things Happening Here

Hello, Hello!

Its been a good few months since my last log so I figured id let y’all know whats going on around here, if your one of the awesome few who frequent the site you may have noticed some things changing. I have tidied up quite a bit, some spring cleaning and organizing, as well as adding new things to the site.

Ive reworked the site map/hierarchy/navigation of the site, it is much better organized now. I’ve Updated the About Me, Twitch Portfolio, Videos, and Blog pages design wise as well as adding new content there. I added an easy “Pay Me” link under the contact tab.

I’ve created the page, Art Projects, to showcase different projects I’m working on, expect more to be added soon.

I have started working on adding a centralized store here on my site that offers all the products available through out my various stores. You will see products slowly being added the next few weeks, lots to add. For now, we have some graphic packages in there, and we also have set a free page, that will be home to some wonderful things for you, so far you can go download a free PS action pack! Its pretty cool if I do say so myself!

I plan to update and rework everything so stay tuned!

Thanks

Captains Log 011: 2021 Gonna Be The Year

I have a lot of things planned for next year, and if the coronavirus chills the fuck out, imma have a lot a lot coming out in 2021, its gonna be my busiest year yet.

Artist Connect is back up and running, I am working hard on getting black book going the way I want it, its going to take time.

Evan Reviews Everything has been uploading some videos exclusively to Facebook first for at least a day and then uploaded to my Dopely Diverse Youtube Channel a few days later.

I am working on the 2021 face lift for the ERE page as well as other pages, expect new stuff!

I have been picking up clients more and more so I been busy behind the scenes without producing as much as my own content as I would like to. But hey if we making money, we happy, lol.

We just dropped more merchandise in the all the shops; ex, ex, ex.

I have so much in the pipeline that I cant wait to share.

Peace and much love in these worrisome times.

Reporting in after the coronavirus lockdown

2020 has been one hell of a ride, and it’s not even over yet, but soon my friends. As with everything, this too shall pass.

I remember at the beginning of the year I had so many things I wanted to do, traveling, new food spots, festivals, all sorts of things, and then coronavirus came and shit all over that for me and everyone else.

So since march I’ve held my head down, rarely left my house, got a little fatter, enjoyed some awesome new shows, tidy some files up, continued on client work, got new clients, played video games, and organized the studio with some new upgrades.

Not too much has changed for me, working from home is a luxury that I appreciate everyday, but even more so in all of this coronavirus nonsense. But I hate that everything is closed down, nothing to do but keep your head down and get some work done, what ever that may be.

I been trying to get back into everything of sorts lol. Been drawing more, ive been working on more abstract digital artwork again which I have always loved but took a bit of a break from it.

Im starting to write more even if it wasn’t evident from this blog, working on a few new stories and creative projects, but take this post as a sign of more to come thanks to me taking a few extra min to sit down and write.

Starting to write scenes for a cartoon I want to eventually create. Who knows when that will come to fruition, could be some time.

I just posted a new episode of the podcast to the YouTube channel, New videos are always being uploaded so make sure you subscribe to the page so you dont miss anything!

I will be updating the Evan reviews everything page very soon, as well as uploading the new reviews you can only find on Facebook right now to the YouTube page.

As always lots happening working on lots in the background, trying to get artist connect back up and running, really need to push for it. Had some set backs when I tried to laugh blackbook, I think I need to take it back to the roots for now until I figure out how to deal with all the spam users. stay tuned for that.

As always stay tuned for everything, thanks for following, thanks for reading, evdog out.

2020 IS A BUST

008

I just realized there hasn’t been a new post on here for a while, and when I come to check when the last CAPTAINS LOG I typed out was at the beginning of 2020, and my oh my, how much optimism I had for this year.

By now, we all know this year is a bust. Dont get me wrong, its perfect for me, I work from home anyway, but still, everything cancelled and shutdown, it really blows.

Ive pretty much wrapped up this whole year as a bust.

But again, I suppose its nice to have this time to hunker down and get shit done on my super long checklist.

Ive been slowly and steadily upgrading my studio, once the next few items come in ill be done with the upgrades for this year so I will make a 2021 Studio Walkthrough video even though the year isn’t over.

I haven’t been able to crank out many EVAN REVIEWS EVERYTHING cuz as we have stated everything is closed down! It really sucks, I want some food!! I will be updating the EVAN REVIEWS EVERYTHING homepage very soon here…

More content is constantly coming to the YouTube channel, make sure you are following me there!

Ive updated a few pages around here, my twitch portfolio for one, go check it out!

In the meantime, im working on all my content, and my sites, including this one, getting ready to revamp ARTIST CONNECT, cant wait!

Stay Tuned,

Evan Beale

Captain’s Log: 006 – Restructuring for 2020

Trying to get back on schedule, I’ve been working on so many different things that my time management sort of went out the window. I’ve been restructuring the framework of all my brands yet again, and sort of rethinking what all my brands mean and stand for… in the beginning I sort of published everything together. Then I was afraid of diluting one brands image with another. So I split everything up, created separate pages, websites, and social medias for all these brands.

It was nice keeping everything organized but posting and trying to maintain so many different channels, and grow them, much harder than if you were to just focus on one. I’ve kind of come to the conclusion that I don’t need to split my content into niches and keep them separated. I am the niche. If people have a problem with any content I create, thats their problem. I create content on a wide array of different subjects, that’s what I love to do. Im not going to worry anymore about whether or not one category of my content will turn people away from another category of my content.

To further clarify just to paint the picture, I create content about marketing and helpful tutorials, and other things that may not mesh well with other areas of my content, like Dopely Diverse, my umbrella company in which I publish all my creative outlets under. There lies another example, if your a frequent user of this site, you for sure know I create content around marketing, but you may have never heard of Dopely Diverse. That wasn’t by accident. I tried keeping any brand one could see as “counter-culture” far away from my brands that reside in a more corporate and professional setting.

But to me you can be professional, and real, and the real ones see that, and thats the only people I want to work with anyway, you know what I mean?

So what does this mean?

As far as social media goes, for youtube, I will be moving the Evan Review’s Everything, Digital Clinic, and Escaping Finlandia Youtube Channels and all the respected content over to the Dopely Diverse youtube page and that is where all future content will be posted.

As for Instagram, Content for the brands listed above will now be posted on Dopely Diverse’s Instagram page.

As for Facebook Pages, All brands will keep their individual pages with Dopely Diverse facebook page reposting most of the content from individual pages.

As for the site, much more content will be posted to this site, which is what Ive always wanted, more of everything I do, no censoring, thats why I bought the url: evansworld.digital cuz thats what this site it. Its not just escaping Finlandia anymore, which originally started as a travel blog and grew into all of this. I just love to document everything I do and I know I would regret having to look back at this period and not doing exactly what I wanted for some fear of dumb shit I shouldn’t be worried about in the first place.

This sites gonna go from 100% real to 500% real. Just wait. 2020 Gonna be an amazing year!

Captain’s Log: 002 | 5000 Emails Later

Hello, Hello! I hope everyone had a productive week like I did, I finally cleaned the 5000 emails out of my inbox today, no easy feat. That could have been enough for the entire week but I guess I had to do more.

Ive been playing a lot with different content strategies for my personal brands and my clients, content creation and content marketing is always fun for me. I wrapped up a clients project this week with a little bit of last minute content capture with my new canon, she shoots like a dream.

I have some travel posts that I need to wrap up, hopefully I will do that in the next few days. I posted a new video to youtube, make sure to check that out!

Im working on some additions to the site, the first one you will see will probably be a “photos” page.

Ive been having fun experimenting with my art as always, and playing with my new canon, taking a lot of photos and videos and spending a lot of time in the editing room.

Wizard dropped a Instagram exclusive last night make sure to head over to the page and check it out you may find value in it.

Stay tune for all the new content on its way!

Much Love
-Evan

P.s Someone asked me about my posting times, Ive been playing around with post times, right now, 9am, 12pm, and 6pm and performing well for me.
