Dr. Krill-Jackson is a practicing Hematologist & Oncologist in Miami Beach, FL. Dr. Krill-Jackson graduated from University of Michigan Medical School in 1990 and has been in practice for 28 years.

The Super Survivor YouTube Channel and Podcast
Great news everyone: I’ve just started a band new YouTube channel dedicated to this project. Although my main channel is thriving, I felt that the cancer related content deserves a dedicated place because it’s unrelated to 3D tutorials or tech reviews. The new channel will feature lectures I’ve recorded as well as coverage of Karen’s Oncology Symposiums, featuring a wealth of information that deserves to be shared. But that’s not all: while YouTube has the largest audience out of all services out there, it’s sometimes beneficial to listen to the information as it’s presented, be that on a walk in the park, a lengthy commute, or a boring flight. Hence, all content will be available as audio versions in the podcast feed. You can subscribe to the service via these services, using your favorite podcast client: Apple Podcasts (formerly iTunes)Google Play MusicSpotifyStitcher This is part of a larger content reorganization strategy I’m currently working on, with more longer term projects coming into my life. I’ll talk more about this in an upcoming post.

Don’t Be Afraid To Suck
A reminder to all of us that making mistakes isn’t a bad thing at all, quite the opposite: it’s an opportunity for growth and to get better. Our endeavour to be “perfect” all the time and not make mistakes may well be the cause for limited growth. Big shout out to Noobslice, check his Twitch channel here. Join me for a live stream every Friday at 10am and Saturday at 4pm EST over on my other channel.

Health and Tech Update
I’ve met a new primary doctor to make sure my hand isn’t getting any worse. Turns out she had the same oncologist as I did, and she’s a cancer survivor! Meanwhile, the results of my latest blood work are back, and I’ve got some news on how the next instalment of DAZ Studio 101 is coming along, plus some news on future streaming plans I have. The live stream I’m talking about is on my other channel: Using dForce and Denoiser in DAZ Studio.

I’ve noticed some increasing discomfort in my left hand, which I believe is caused by my day job. I’ve been shopping one too many grocery items it appears. To make sure this discomfort doesn’t escalate into something more serious, I’m trying an experiment to change my own behaviour and notice what I’m doing that might be causing this issue.

In this episode I’m talking about thoughts on expanding my audience reach to Twitch. The company have recently expanded their repertoire to more non-gaming content, they have a big user base, their service is integrated into many streaming services – and they offer free video storage. Why not utilise it? I’m still testing it out, but if you’re eager to embrace new services, join me for a casual live stream over here: https://twitch.tv/wpguru

God wants you to start a YouTube Channel
Two years ago, somebody told me that I should start a YouTube channel and share some of my positive vibes with the world. I smiled, at the suggestion, not realising that I had already done so. Looking back at this incident, I’ve realised what a great idea that was.

Amazon Influencer Update (hint: it sucks)
Here’s an update to my earlier video about the Amazon Influencer Programme. To re-cap, a month or two ago, I’ve signed up and was approved to be an Amazon Influencer in the US, based on the amount of YouTube subscribers on my other channel (just over 4000 when it happened). Since then I’ve made a whopping $1 from the endeavour. In this episode I’ll explain more about the ridiculous complexity of joining the programme, Amazon’s mysterious system called One Link, and what happens when you don’t send 6 billion visitors per second to Mr. Bezos. You can watch my earlier video here. My super memorable vanity URL is https://amazon.com/shop/thewpguru (best click it fast, before it stops working)

Plans for 2019 (and a Happy New Year)
I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and in 2019 I want to make it a reality: Regular Live Streams! My idea is to do two types of streams: Creative live streams, much like what I’ve been doing as fully proudced videos on a regular schedule. I’m thinking perhaps FRIDAYS at 10AM EST (that’s 4PM in the UK, 5PM in Europe and 2AM in Sydney) – let me know what you think. These will cover creative softwares like DAZ Studio, Photoshop, Marvelous Designer, Blender, Carrara, along those lines. Those solitary computer tasks, with the benefit of live interaction through chat. The other type of stream is video gaming. Those are happening in addition, no regular schedule, and they’re more about hanging out and having a chat. It’s a great place to ask questions and get answers from me. At the same time, we’ll have a look at a video game and think about how it was built by the developers (as well as seeing how to play it). See you soon PS: Have a wonderful 2019 everybody!!!

Has Gutenberg made WordPress less relevant?
I’ve been using WordPress since 2006 for so many projects, and I can’t imagine a life without it. I often use it as a notebook, and Gutenberg doesn’t make that very easy. This means that I either have to find a different workflow and get used to Gutenberg, or find another way to manage my content. Which begs the question, is WordPress still as relevant to me today as it was when I discovered it back in the day?

Voice Mail Spam – Vol. 1
I don’t get phone calls anymore. All I get spam calls, mostly from automated systems. I’m not sure if it’s just the machines trying to connect with me, or if it’s a government ploy, or if my number is on some kind of “annoy to death” list. As a result, I don’t check my messages very often – but when I do, I’m happy to share what I receive with you (because sometimes it’s hilarious). Enjoy!
