YouTube TERMINATED my channel

Dear YouTube Team,

I believe my channel was WRONGLY terminated. My video “CBD & Kratom in Kansas | Legalities and what is going on?!” “was flagged for review, determined to violate community guidelines, and removed from YouTube as was my channel.  I do not believe I violated Community Guidelines.

My video, one of several in a series, was educational in nature (allowed by Community Guidelines) documenting (allowed by Community Guidelines) my trip to the Topeka State Capitol and the Senate Bills being discussed, voted on and ultimately passed.

These bills (S.B. 263 and S.B. 282)  which have been passed into law,

  1. Create a program to research the use of industrial hemp in Kansas, and
  2. Remove CBD Products containing 0% THC and Kratom, from the Controlled Substances Act and makes them legal products to sell, purchase and consume.

The video in question, as were the other videos in that series, educated the public on the legalities surrounding those Senate Bills and what that meant for Kansans.  

At no time did my video(s) “encourages or promotes violent or dangerous acts that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death.” as was implied in the email I received informing me of the rationale for terminating my channel.

Additionally, the said video followed the guideline of “…need to be educational or documentary in nature…”

My title clearly informed the viewer of the primary purpose of the video, which discussed the legalities of CBD & Kratom in the state of Kansas.  

Your email went on to say, “We understand that users seldom intend to violate our policies. That’s why strikes don’t last forever – this strike will expire in three months.” However, my channel was terminated with no further information from you on how to correct the situation for the future.  How am I, or any other YouTuber, expected to learn and grow, if an honest mistake was made? Where is the grace allowed? I could understand your decision if I were posting videos of myself using illegal drugs and telling viewers where to obtain them, but I didn’t. I was sharing the LAW as it was being discussed and voted on, in my state capitol.  

I followed the recommended form of appeal and received (what I believe) was an autoresponder, which stated the YouTube Team would thoroughly review my appeal and contact me and inform me of the mistake.  That was not the case and I have never received any information which would educate me on the flagrant violation I have been judged to have committed.

Sincerely,

Deanna Bonn

How I plan – Weekly Review

I have finally turned the camera on during my planning sessions to show “HOW” I plan.  Making a video (series of videos) on my planning structure has been on my to-do list for a while but it wasn’t until I watched a video by MissVickybee titled, “Where is Planning?” that I decided to do it.  In her video, she mentions all the “Plan With Me’ videos available online and how beautiful the art of pretty planning is but she wanted to see the structure, “what was being planned” too often she would see planners that were decorated but not set up.

I am all for decorating and pretty planning for the sake of self-care and creative expression (I love stickers) but planners need to be functional or else they are not planners but scrapbooks.  This is where I should mention that I love watching scrapbook process videos, but when I am interested in personal development and looking for new ways to be more productive or efficient with my tasks, I want to watch and learn from a planner who is employing replicable organizational strategies and techniques.

In addition to my “How I Plan” video series, I am making my Weekly Review questions available for you to use in your own planning routine.  To learn how I use this invaluable tool, check out my weekly review video.

 

 

 

October Daily – Junk Journal with Me

In my effort to continue challenging and healing my brain, I have been inspired to participate in an October Daily journal challenge and I had to add my own twist.  

The challenge is to journal daily throughout the month of October (and I hope to video it as well and post it to my YouTube channel).

I have decided to use this journal time to challenge myself to participate in activities that engage the left brain, logic-based activity (i.e. math, science, history, sequencing) on odd number days of the month.

On even number days, I will participate in activities that engage the right brain, creativity based activity (i.e. paint, draw, write, play music, crochet, using your imagination is the key and your only limit).

I created this image as a visual prompt and show you how I will use it in my video.  

Feel free to print it out and use it as you follow along with me on this journey.

Cricut and Silhouette are two companies that produce cutting machines.

I currently own a Cricut Explore Air 2

It’s used to kiss cut stickers and works great but sometimes I cut them by hand when they are basic shapes like squares and rectangles.
