Yes, I am getting more Twitter followers now.
I’m not sure how good the types of followers I am getting are though. 1 in 10 seems to be some type of artificial inflation of popularity scheme trying to get me to jump on their bandwagon. 2 in 10 seem to be so called “internet entrepreneurs” (read as Affiliate Marketers) trying to “shove product down my digital throat”.
I need to make money, not spend more money.
I need a marketing expert of my own but I can’t afford to pay such a person for their services. Nor do I wish to end up looking like every other “self development guru” on the digital planet. I don’t need or want to send out digital newsletters urging my readers to buy not only my own products, but the products of every other self dev marketer in the world.
There must be a better model out there…or maybe I need to develop the first new one?
Today I abandoned a social networking site I had hoped would make Facebook obsolete for me.
When Niume, the only known major United Kingdom based Social Networking site first launched, it looked like the answer to a dream. Originally one could found an interest group, (then called a “circle” but later renamed to “sphere”) on any subject one wished to. My only problem with the original concept was there was no provision for moderation of such a sphere, and they could not be made private; thus everything would be search-engine visible. I’d wanted to found a discussion group for female based hypnotherapy practices; naturally one would not want the inner workings of such publicly visible. As that failed to be an option, I decided to found several spheres to share hypnotherapy, dressage and experimental music based media; as it turns out, everything shared through Niume must have some form of media attached to it, whether photographic or video based.
In October of last year, the site owners began a Crowdfunding effort; the site had grown far faster than they had envisioned; and thus it needed more robust hosting. This was successful; and in a few weeks the site underwent a makeover that in my opinion, ruined it.
No longer could users speak on any subject they wished. the Circles became Spheres, and user creation was dumped in favor of a fixed set of general topics under site owner moderation and strict posting guidelines. Promotional posting was also banned if it was connected to any type of commercial enterprise. All of my hypnosis/hypnotherapy posts were summarily removed and placed into my “Workshop” section as not meeting the guidelines; read this as they no longer fit into any existing genre, or they were seen as commercial, even though I was promoting no product or service (I no longer see clientele face to face). I had a few clips of female stage hypnotists from YouTube whose skits I enjoyed; my own hypnotherapy videos are always freewill gifts; perhaps they were dumped due to the fact I am a YouTube Partner and all of my videos are monetized?
I tried to post my latest Hypnotic Soundscape to the Music Sphere today, only to have it sent to my Drafts section within two minutes of posting. Niume is now to me about as useful as a pair of child’s water wings would be to a person about to be dumped into the sea from a sinking ship and in need of a full life jacket.
So much for replacing Facebook; I may visit once in a while, but only as a viewer from now on.

As I may have mentioned, while I am healing and looking into replacement teeth, I will be doing mostly Hypnotic Soundscapes rather than hypnosis videos. Here is the first post-surgical piece, based on the Schumann Resonance and mathematical “symbiotes” of same. Enjoy this first media post, and let me know via your commentary if you would like to see other frequencies treated in this fashion.
Here is one of the last hypnosis sessions I will publish before the oral surgery takes place. A Content-Free Utilization hypnosis session, this one is unusual also in that it uses Apposition of Opposites in the induction phase, couched in prosaic language. I hope you find it useful!
I’ve been informed by my dental care outlets that I need to have what is called a “total mouth clearance”. In other words, they wish to remove all of my teeth via oral surgery under a general anaesthetic *groan*. This is not uncommon to have happen as one grows older. I have already had a pre-surgical assessment, and now am waiting to be told there is a bed for me at the designated hospital. This is being done under the auspices of the National Health Service, so the schedule is indeterminate at best.
What this means for my YouTube channels: less hypnosis and more Hypnotic Soundscapes, at least for the present time and until I have been properly fitted with dentures.
What can my viewing audience do to help?
Keep watching and sharing; YouTube Fan Funding and Patreon support would also be welcome. I promise to get through this and back to full production as soon as possible!
