Tan Unscripted #1

So in addition to getting the blog set back up, I’m going to Vlog over on YouTube sometimes, mainly because it’s a requirement for monetization but also, because I just miss doing it.

I said in the video I was going to try embedding it so here we go:

Did it work? ?

I Lost a Size!!

I am so beyond freaking happy right now – finally being on the treadmill every night for an hour, lifting weights for 20-30 minutes and moving stream time out has had an impact. I think it’s been what 6 weeks or so?

I’ve lost about 5 inches on my waist. Still got a ways to go, but I had to share. I dropped an entire size. Now, that’s not to say I’m done, not by a long shot, but the work I’m putting in is finally starting to show. But I’m not going to just get to what I think is my ideal size and quit; no this had to be a fundamental change to my daily routine. So looking long term, like with the HRT. Just, doing this now and forever as best I can. And yeah there are days where I’m in too much pain and have to rest or whatever but that comes with the territory.

If I could just lose a size or two on my NECK and FEET I’d be thrilled LOL

Mobile Layout!

Well then! I took a big chunk of the day yesterday to work on the website and… I think I’ve got it where I want it again! I specifically was looking at how I could make mobile better.. and really it just came down to needing to add links for mobile at the end of the homepage.

There’s *probably* a way to hide them when the site isn’t in mobile mode, but I haven’t spent any time trying to figure it out. Plus they have some nice descriptors so eh. I’ll leave it for the moment. It used to be that the top row of icons were freaking big on mobile they took over the entire screen, it was nuts. So that’s been fixed, and the little sidebar of posts scales and moves like it’s supposed to, all the menus have been adjusted etc.

I’m really proud of this stupid little website now! Hahah

Been a minute AGAIN!

Damn this ADHD! I’m never allowed to just have things work smoothly and just keep doing it! ?

I’ve decided since I’m cutting back on my streaming days AND splitting it up between Twitch and Youtube AND since I’m taking a less active role on Twitter because it sucks; I should probably start blogging again every so often.

I’ll probably only do this once a week, if that, and might do more vlogging again. I dunno yet.

In any case, streaming on YouTube was so nice and calm.. I need more of that in my life. Probably going to spend today making stream ready for Twitch again with a lot less insanity. There will still be SOME things but I’m cutting way back.

I still love you!! ????? -Tan

Getting Ko-Fi set back up

So, yeah. I will probably still blog here on occasion – not sure what the distinction will be between here and Ko-fi other than this will be less updated. Maybe for more serious or big changes? I will think of something. Some posts just feel like they belong here and not elsewhere. More big sweeping kind of announcements, although I post those elsewhere too, just they feel more at home here.

Meaning – hey I’m backing off Twitter again. Only more seriously. I am not safe there anymore. At all. Like, ok I know I should stand and fight but it’s not worth saving. I can use other things, other websites, so I will! Mainly, right now, Ko-Fi. Thank you to Brooke for reminding me that it’s a thing.

The funny thing is, I will still have things tweeted – I just wont ever go look at them or respond to them I don’t think. Anyway, go follow me on Ko-Fi!

Love your faces, Cuties. ????? -Tan

Having fun making jokes!

Well it’s been a lot of ‘throw stuff at the wall to see what sticks’ but I think I’m finally there with content I like making outside of streaming. These bad joke shorts! LOL

I know, people either love em or hate em and that’s perfect. And I have no idea how much material there is to go through? Thousands of jokes maybe? Maybe limitless?

I could always do knock knock jokes, dad jokes, puns, you name it! Hah!

Anyway, I’m having a blast making them and they seem to actually be helping me grow a little. Check them out if you would!

Stepping away from PridePrism

Hey Cuties. I know there’s going to be questions you probably have, but I really can’t answer them any better. I had to step away from PridePrism.

I’m still friends with most of the people in the team, and wish them and Styxie as the new leader all the success they can get!!

It feels like to me that I was still pretty much an outsider, being the oldest and just not having the energy to put into the team. I feel bad. I do NOT think anything I’ve done contributed or that I could have prevented anything, honestly. I was just.. kinda there. *shrug* I feel bad for the way others were treated. 🙁

Ah well. Onward and upward!! I love you, Cuties!! ????? -Tan

Working on Content

So I’ve finally kinda stumbled on content I really REALLY enjoy making, it’s short, usually less than 30 seconds – where I take two of my models and tell myself a bad (or dad) joke, and react to it.

It’s pretty funny, and I am actually enjoying the hell out of making them!

It’s easier than longform content and it’s actually not as rough as trying to come up with a clip all the time. There’s literally millions of bad jokes out there, I’ll never run out of them hahah

That aside to this point I’ve done 4. If I run out of steam, it will be well before I’ve told every joke to exist. Sheesh.

If you are still reading this, I need help though. I need more engagement on TikTok and YouTube especially, please. Watch, like and comment all you can. I’d really appreciate it.

My TikTok is @TanStreams and my YouTube is @Tanandra. Check em out!

Well, that’s all I’ve got for this week! I love you, Cutie!! ? -Tan
