If I’m being completely honest with you, I don’t have much to write about this week. The truth is, even though I’ve been keeping busy during this “stay at home” order, there isn’t that much that is new, or interesting to write a weekly blog about. My original thought when I started blogging weekly on here, was that I would write about what we were doing here at Chocolate Diamond, and also thoughts about the industry, and insights into business, but 8 weeks into basically not seeing people, has dried up a lot of that.
So what is there to talk about?
I guess the big thing, is to kind of talk about what we’ve already mentioned, that happens to still be going on. I can remind you, in case you’re new, or if you’ve missed the past couple of weeks, that we made an entry video and article into a contest trying to spotlight small businesses that could use support during this time. We made a video about Chirba Chirba Dumpling Truck, which we’re extremely proud of. Some of the best feedback we’ve received has been “oh man, now I want some dumplings,” which makes me excited to think that someone 600 miles away from Chirba Chirba’s mouth is watering for their dumplings.
In addition to that video, we’ve also been working slowly on our keyframing a spec ad, and we’re hoping to have that posted soon, but it’s a more difficult task to finish while quarantined with a 4 year-old. So we’re just taking it slowly but surely, and hopefully soon we’ll have that posted.
Lastly, we talked about crowd sourcing a documentary about what we’re doing during this time. Something that would hopefully highlight the human spirit in this time. It’s not too late to participate. Are you turning your garage into a driving range, or trying to read all the great American novels, or learning a new skill? Tell us about it, and let us share your story.
We’ll leave you with a simple question, what do you want to know? Tell us in the comments, are you interested in our insights into the video/film industry, how we think video can play into business as a whole, or do you like our personal stories? Whatever it is you think that we should be updating most often on, please tell us in the comments.
