Happy Memorial Day 2014

Happy Memorial Day everyone!!

I hope that all of you will enjoy your festivities today and take the time to remember all of our United States men and women who have risked their lives in service so that we can remain free.

So if anyone has wondered where we’ve been here’s the story. My mom and my little nephew came into Orlando last weekend to stay and visit for two weeks. The original plan was that I would still be doing some things here and there but Mix It Up was gonna be on a short hiatus. Then this past Thursday night all three of us were in a car accident. My mama has very sore back, neck, and chest. As well as a cut place on her knee and some other little things. I have had some pretty bad soreness in my back and neck which has put me out of work until I can get in to my doctor on Tuesday to be checked out better. Praying that nothing serious has happened so I can go back to work very soon!!

So in the mean time we will be on a hiatus until everything gets back to normal. In the mean time I will be posting some photos from my favorite part of the summer Star Wars Weekends!! Which began last weekend at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!! I was able to attend all three days of the first weekend and it was fabulous!!
Be in prayer for us and stay tuned for new stuff to begin again next week!!

Social Media Careers

Who would have ever thought that when you first created your Xanga blog, had Myspace, started your Facebook account, or Tweeted for the first time that one day there would be career opportunities within social media?? I know I didn’t.
My recent decision to get back in school has got me thinking about social media and digital technology in a whole new way.
Social media has expanded in to such a vast spectrum. It is no longer just used as a past time, for fun, or to communicate with friends and family. While those are mainstays, the world of social media has grown in to a vast empire that early developers most likely never even dreamed of.
Businesses are now hiring specialists in the area of social media. They are using it to build their business. It’s basically like free advertising.
For example say you’re a popular boutique and you wanna let people know you’re having an exclusive sale starting tomorrow. You could tweet about it and in 30 seconds millions of people can know.
People that get hired for these positions kinda have to think on their feet and be clever. Whether it be a blog, a video, a tweet, or a Facebook post you kind of need to know a little bit about all of the different platform and what audiences use which one the most.
Some people spend a lot of time watching YouTube videos. Some people like to read Twitter feeds. Some people search the blogosphere for good articles. Some people look for new things to “like” on Facebook. Beyond that there are so many other social media platforms like one of my favorites Instagram that are growing and growing.
I like learning about all of these. So I am looking at specializing in the area of social media when I head back to school this fall. I love the idea of being apart of something that ever changing and growing daily.
New social media platforms gain popularity now overnight through the use of smartphone apps. People find the ones they like and then tell their friends and it gets bigger and bigger.

What an exciting world!!

Social media has given the world a voice that they have never had to be able to communicate in seconds to people all across the globe. Now you can have it as a career. I think it is such a great area to be apart of for professional career goals.

Would you hire me for social media??
What are your thoughts on this empire of social media that is continuing to grow.
Which platform is your favorite?

I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions. Let me hear from you!!

See ya later!!

GRAY IN OZ – Back on WordPress!!

Hello blogging world!!

First of all I have to say I am super excited to bring “Gray In Oz” back to WordPress. ¬†Hopefully this is going to be a lot of fun over the coming days.

So I am really wanting to gain a little bit more of a following on the web.  From what I have noticed, there is no better way to do it than to have several platforms to get your voice heard.

I originated my blog “Gray In Oz” here on WordPress and have moved around a couple times since then. ¬†After some research I have found that WordPress seems to be the most popular blogging site on the web. ¬†So what better place to be right?

My goal for this blog is discovery and discussion. ¬†I am a 25 year old guy who is a performer. ¬†I am coming of age in a pretty important time in my country’s history. ¬†Social media is taking over, the government is deciding what health care I need, terrorism is a regular occurrence, and political correctness is out of control. ¬†I mean seriously, you can’t say anything anymore it seems without offending SOMEBODY. ¬†It’s nuts. ¬†The world is nuts ¬†Things are changing by the second in the US and in the world. ¬†I want to be informed, in the know, and involved in what’s going on. ¬†I wanna ask questions and gain information so that I can develop my own views and opinions based on my upbringing and what I believe is right or wrong. ¬†I want to discuss it with others.

Of course I want to be young and have fun as well.  So I am hoping that all of that will be apart of the return of this blog.

I am however not removing Gray In Oz from Tumblr.  This will be my main source or hub of everything if you will.  Tumblr will be a supplement to this as more of the fun side of Caleb, while this will be the more serious side.  I am not perfect, nor do I claim to be.  I strive for perfection, but I am definitely not perfect.

So now I reach out to you, the reader, the blogger. ¬†Talk to me. ¬†Give me some ideas. ¬†Give me a topic to talk about. ¬†I will be adding my own things as well. ¬†I love however, to hear from others and have conversations. ¬†The wannabe talk show host in me says all of this. ¬†So let’s get talking!!

In the meantime go to my YouTube Channel and watch my new show, MIX IT UP, check out my Tumblr, and follow me on Twitter!!

Song/Music Video Of the Week

This week’s song is by the amazing and beautiful Leona Lewis!!!! ¬†OMG love her!! ¬†This song sorta describes my life right now. ¬†I am not really in the place that I want to be or doing what I want to be doing, but I am doing everything in my power to make the best out of the situation. ¬†I’ve had the reoccurring theme going through my head of living for right now and living every day as if it is the last. ¬†Sometimes we spend so much time worrying about things and always trying to play it safe that we end up being unhappy.

One of the lines in this song says, “so unhappy, but safe as could be.” ¬†Then the chorus says – “so what if it hurts, me, so what if I break down, so what if this world just throws me off the edge, my feet run out of ground. ¬†I gotta find my place, I wanna hear my song, don’t care about all the pain in front of me, I’m just trying to be happy.”

OMG isn’t that amazing!!

Hope that you all enjoy Leona Lewis’s “Happy”

Where Have I Been Lately????

So I have been away for about two weeks I think now from “Gray In Oz” – things have been crazy training at the hotel and getting ready to open. ¬†I have not had much time to breathe!!!!

I’ve also been catching up with certain TV shows and such as well during my off time instead of surfing the web world. ¬†But hopefully I can make it back to you soon.

I LOVE blogging I do!!!!  But I am not creative enough at times to come up with things to blog about.  haha

As a result of this I am in the process of making some decisions about the future of “Gray In Oz” ¬†The blog will not be going away, but we may make a switch to a different website. ¬†It is a blogging website like WordPress, but it is more similar to Twitter, or since I don’t blog very much anyways, I may just make my Twitter account the new “Gray In Oz” – we will see, but for now, I will try to continue to post my fav pics and videos every week as part of the “Of the Week” series as well as various “Today In Oz” shows here and there.

Basically things will go on as they have been as of late until I decide what I am going to do.  But there is the update for now.

I am going to Mobile this weekend to visit some friends that have all had birthdays this month and I wasn’t able to be there so I am going to celebrate with them all this weekend and it is going to be AMAZING!!!! ¬†I am so excited!!!!

“…Of the Week” will resume regular scheduling next week!!

Have a great weekend everyone.

Gray In Oz – The Information

GrayInOzTestLogoOk so I am really starting to love video blogging!! It is seriously slowly becoming an obsession. I know that I don’t really “blog” a lot, but I can’t find much to blog about most of the time. Although when something significant happens, I usually will blog about it and post a photo or two.

Anyways.

I taped this today talking about all of the places you can find me on the web. Also all websites and links related to “Gray In Oz” It is going to be a segment on the debut episode of TAKE A BOW which will be posted next week here at “Gray In Oz”

I am super excited!!

Enjoy!!

Seacrest/Lohan Reality Show

I love the idea of this because I am always ready to support something that is trying to reach out to people in need. No matter how they got in trouble, they need help, and this world needs more people who care about other people beside themselves. I think this is a great idea.

However, I am not sure about the money thing. I don’t think it is right to judge people based on their situation. Everyone should get the help that deserve.

Just handing them money and saying, “Here ya go, get help now.” won’t do anything. Hopefully there will be more to it than that. Hope it works out for them!!

What do you think??

Check out the article from TV Guide…

Seacrest, Lohan Collaborate on “Meaningful” New Reality Show

090620SeacrestLohan1Ryan Seacrest has met with Lindsay Lohan to discuss a new reality series that will help people whose lives have taken a wrong turn.

“Met with Lindsay last night about a show idea I have for her,” Seacrest said via Twitter on Friday. “It helps people and gives others a second shot! Still putting it all together.”

In addition to hosting American Idol, Seacrest executive-produces such series as Denise Richards: It’s Complicated and Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Lohan herself tweeted about the “really great project,” describing it as “something meaningful like [ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition].”

“I am excited!” Lohan wrote.

Neither party elaborated on the exact concept of the show ‚ÄĒ and a rep for Seacrest did not immediately respond to TVGuide.com’s request for further comment ‚ÄĒ but a source told TMZ.com that it would involve giving people whose lives are on the wrong track a cool million dollars to right themselves.

Lohan, in turn, would serve on a panel of judges determining which hapless individual would best be suited by the life-changing endowment.
