Announcing a brand new show in the works called Your Valuable! No, that’s not incorrect grammer. It stands for:

  • Your Valuable Apps
  • Your Valuable Art
  • Your Valuable Content
  • Your Valuable Connections
  • Your Valuable Data
  • Your Valuable Devices

It’s a show about how to take back control from Big Tech companies who monetize your valuable stuff for their own nefarious purposes. Learn via hands-on reviews, demonstrations, tips & techniques all about the products that can REALLY help you on a daily basis make amazing artistic creations and upgrade your life to be more fun, free, and rewarding!

(Also in the video…a walkabout near Tanner Springs and other Pearl District locations in Portland, Oregon.)

Season 3, Episode 1

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about Portland, the Pacific Northwest, and the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a life that’s most meaningful to you.

I’m currently in the process of uploading all my #vlog episodes to date to Vimeo. I’ve decided that as part of my #openweb content strategy, I’m going to post videos there and “syndicate” some of them to YouTube (and Patreon).

In this scenario, Vimeo is simply a hosting company I pay for, so ultimately the canonical home for my vlog is my own website. As it should be!

This is my first test of the studio’s new vlogging desk setup. I’ve had lots of ideas about doing product reviews, short topical monologues, narratives interspersed with travel videos, etc. I can’t wait to finish getting this all ready! #vlog

I did something totally stupid…I accidentally erased my iMac hard drive which had a full edit of this video. Luckily I recovered the raw footage, so this is my SECOND attempt at putting a vlog episode together. I visited Bothell, WA — the place my mom wrote a piece of Celtic music for entitled “The Woods of Bothell” — as well as the way cool Gasworks Park in Seattle.

Listen to The Woods of Bothell:

This week’s challenge is to practice the power of observation! Learn all about a fantastic awareness training technique I learned from Mindsight by Dr. Daniel Siegel. And of course more Portland awesomeness, more trains, and more coffee! (Yes, Portland has some of the best coffee around. It’s sort of our thing.)

At last, the video you most definitely weren’t waiting for, but got anyway! I’m rebooting my channel with a new name and a new focus, and I’m committing to releasing new videos every week. They won’t all be as “produced” as this one, but hopefully they’ll be fun and exciting and inspirational enough to be worthy of your interest. So please like, subscribe, yada yada, and let me know what you think!
