Title: I'm so busy these days
Post by: KingOfHumans on January 28, 2018, 12:11:00 AM
Recently, I been kind of busy with all the things I have to do online these days.

First, I have to try to keep my discord server in control.
I learned a good lesson recently. Keep the security super tight, make it family friendly, and remove/silence any member with attitude.
Seems to be working compared to the server version from 6 months ago, which was pure chaos.

Second, with the recent youtube monetization changes, I have to make sure my channel has plenty of content to not fall below the (4,000 hours of watch time per year) YT limit. I'm fine on the subs.
The channel doesn't make much, but it's my channel, and I put a lot of work into it.

I also have to try to livestream now, because twitch is improving.. and if YT ever falls, there needs to be a backup fanbase.
Luckily we're not starting with 0, because MOH gathered a small fanbase a while ago, I just now have to try to grow it!

It's not as bad as Decemember.. where I had to pump out a lot more videos, due to the great ads in Dec.
But, I do have to try to put some time aside to either play some games, so MOH can get footage.. or I have to do some recording myself.
MasterOfHyrule pumps out most of the video, while I do like 10%.. but still takes time and hard work.


There are days where I lower my stress by doing nothing, but when I do nothing for a few days... I get crazy bored! There's no winning here.. but that's part of life.. you either work, get a dedicated hobby, or go crazy/or depressed!

You're right about that. There's no in between. I'm also either working or doing a dedicated hobby or I'd also go crazy/get depressed!

Online streaming is very hard, even for pre-recorded videos. I've heard from other Youtubers and the amount of work they put in is crazy and if they have a regular job on top of it, I don't know if they even sleep.

I have the highest respect for y'all who make on there. It's not an easy job for sure, but at least y'all seem to love it so that helps out a lot.

That reminds me, twitch.tv is expanding to also do pre-recorded videos now. You going to start uploading there as well or are you going to wait and see if that flops first?

I have a couple videos there.. but there's no video fanbase..
Youtube works better for montages!

Depends on what you're doing, actually. I follow a number of maker channels these days, and they rarely do montages. They cover specific topics, usually of specific projects they made (sometimes going over every detail of how they made it). I also follow a blacksmith in the UK that does videos showing his progress on things he makes. He's the ONLY Brit I ever heard of that loves country music.

A Brit that loves country music? I can actually see that in today's world.
