Don’t you ever sleep?

I thought I should answer this question since 2 people have asked me this recently. The answer is yes, I do sleep. Typically, I sleep 8 or so hours a night. Sometimes I sleep 9 hours a night if I am feeling particularly ambitious.

I think the reason people ask me this is because I teach classes in the evening and then my students discover a video posted to the counselorssoapbox YouTube channel at 1 AM, followed by the blog post which appears at 2 AM.

No people, I do not stay up till 2 AM to get all this done. As much possible, I try to write these posts and produce these videos, weeks, or even months in advance. Both WordPress and YouTube have a wonderful feature that allows me to upload material and schedule it to appear at a future date.

When I first started the blog, I had to decide when I wanted my posts to appear. I discovered that I had more than a few readers in the United Kingdom and even Europe. It made sense to me to schedule my posts to appear relatively early in the day so that they would be morning posts across the United States and appear in the UK and Europe before the workday was over. Since then I found I have readers and over 130 countries. Thank you to all of you readers wherever you are on planet Earth. Whatever time you see my post know that I’m going to bed and sleeping through the night by a clock set to Pacific Standard Time here in California.

As of today, I have scheduled posts for the counselorssoapbox blog all the way out through the end of December, and videos are scheduled through the end of November. I will continue to write and produce videos as rapidly as possible in the hopes that I can keep the hoppers full so that you can enjoy my musings without interruption.

Many thanks to all of you who were worried about me getting enough sleep. You can rest easy knowing I have not had to sacrifice my sleeping hobby in order to produce blog content or videos.
