Fun Stuff

Social Media2005 to Present

Youtube

Been messing with youtube since it’s been a thing. Most of those early videos are beyond privated, but my love for the video sharing site has never been higher.

Social Media2006 to Present

Twitter

Twitter for me started as a fun way to send college friends links or images while in class and it’s grown to something for greater than that. From showing friends what your eating to a powerful marketing tool in under 15 years. @nistuff

Social Media2010 to Present

Instagram

Instagram has been a fairly constant in my life in the past 10 years. Once upon a time I used to post images to Instagram about the upcoming sales of my Glyos compatible figure, The Outlander and since then I’ve moved onto posting pictures of action figures that aren’t made by me. I’ve always had and probably always will have a soft spot for Instagram. Oh and it’s great for marketing or something. @nistuff
