Hello everybody! For some reason people seem to want to follow my own profile even though my projects are on other profiles. I guess you're here for all of the latest from me, so why not update you with a little show of my own. Since there is interest. I am inspired by David Allen's book Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity. Every Saturday I spend that day getting everything caught up. Checking over my lists and seeing what I have to do. I'll go more into detail on that below.
The Weekly Review with TGO #1
Getting Things Done
I. Organization and Tasks
I've been a bit lax on getting my projects done. I can have everything neat and organized for sure, but getting things done I've struggled with. Mainly because I don't know what to do on any given day. I finally have a Tasks folder set up so now I just have one sheet of paper with any material I may need on hand for those Tasks and a Support folder as well. These Tasks have to be completed before the end of the week. If you're following me on Patreon I will be posting my Tasks list for that week so you can see what I have coming up. I'm still doing some work on my Patreon though.
II. The Interviewer
This is one of many projects I have fallen behind though. I am playing catch up though. You can expect each new interview out every Wednesday going forward. I'm still working on that retrospective for The Interviewer as well. I have also been formatting past interviews and adding new interviews to The Interview Codex. The Index Page will be moving to The Interviewer soon. Don't despair, the original page will simply detail what The Interviewer is and there will be a link to the Index Page's new home. I also have a Guest Index so you can see all who has been interviewed. As of this news post there have been 187 Newgrounds Members interviewed. You can expect the Codex and past interviews formatted every Friday.
Interviews 1-60 have been formatted for the new layout with new spacers. Any broken links or videos have either been removed due to deletion or replaced with the new video embedding feature. I plan on adding the theme song to where you can just click the button on it instead of going to a separate page. Which by the way, give @sorohanro some love while you're at it. He has graciously allowed me to use his music for years now.
III. The Tank Tribune
I am glad that all of you are enjoying The Tank Tribune. It was a project that I've been working on in secret for quite sometime now. I've noticed that Tom's news posts on the forums have a chance to highlight other creators on the site more. Hopefully that was due to my paper reporting more on the news. It is a project that I work on each and every week. If you have a news story then please send it my way, I'll make sure to credit you as the source.
Each issue has a tagline at the top. If you want your own tagline seen then submit one to the The Tank Tribune Tagline Thread. As long as it isn't crazy long I'll put it on the paper. I have some of my own taglines, but I'm running out of user submitted ones.
If you're a poet and a fan of haiku, then submit yours to the A Haiku a Day thread. The Tank Tribune features a haiku each Sunday. The Tribune also has the Newgrounds Kitchen where recipes are shared to the Newgrounds public. You can post yours in the NG Club for Cooks, Bakers & Eaters Club and it might be featured.
IV. Halloween 2020 Writing Contest
I have been selected as a judge in this year's Halloween Writing Contest! My fellow judges are contest host @SevenSeize4President and previous winner of Halloween Writing Contest and all around beast of a writer @Dranj. I will be reading the first couple of entries next week. I've devised a rubric for my judging that I will be going by until or unless the host supplies one. I've never judged a contest here on Newgrounds so this should be exciting!
I've been invited to be part of podcasts here on Newgrounds and I've had to turn them down each time because, alas, I am without a microphone. It is something I plan to invest in soon. I'm pretty sure I know what I want already after looking at the Voice Recording Resources on the NG Wiki. Any advice is greatly appreciated though.
VI. 24 Hours on Newgrounds
Last month I spent 24 hours straight on Newgrounds to celebrate signing up on the site 14 years ago. The only breaks I took were to eat and rest while listening to music. It was not as easy as I was expecting. I open this challenge to other Newgrounds Members. If they want to take it they can, if not, then that's alright. I open this challenge to all of Newgrounds!
VII. Dohn's Desk
I finally have enough content for this section of Newgrounds that I've put off for far too long. There will be interviews and conversations with other Newgrounds members through Somber Pensive. Dohn's Desk will make its return with an interview with @Lizzardis. There will also be a return of The Underground. It used to be threads I made on the Video Games Forum. Now I'm moving it to news posts. It will also be just a place to say whatever is on my mind at the time. I also plan on rewriting the Introduction.
It is also the namesake of my Patreon which everything will fall under, as you've probably seen on the latest interviews and each issue of The Tank Tribune.
That's about all I have been up to lately. What's been new with all of you?
