Greg Johnson – Monthly Update 201901

Personal Update 201901 | 1 Jan 2019 | Tuesday

Greetings! I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for taking a moment to read this month’s update.

Monthly emails

I’ve been using Yahoo Groups for about 20 years as a system for sending out monthly newsletters. It’s worked okay, but recently their system hasn’t been consistently functioning properly. So, in 2019 I’m switching all my mailings over to Mail Chimp. To signup to receive my monthly email, please click here.

The monthly emails are important because they offer a less intensive subscription for people who don’t want to receive updates every time I post something to my website. One email a month is more manageable.

Espresso Machine Video

As I mentioned in last month’s news update, I’m returning to making more videos for YouTube. One of the videos I made recently that’s had just over 200 views so far is a product review and usage video for the Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine. I’ve shared the video on the Resources for Life website as well as directly to YouTube.

When sharing videos it’s good to get them on YouTube but also share them in other places like a blog, Twitter, or other site so people can find them more easily. On YouTube there can be some interesting comments, feedback, and discussion.

As I get back into making videos, my hope is that I’ll become better in my presentation and in the video production process over time.


Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.

Origins. For those of you who are new to these monthly personal updates, they began about 19 years ago out of a desire to share from my personal life about topics of lifeways (faith), health, career, finances, relationships, effective living, and activism. This is based on the life map presented on the Resources For Life website.
